This solo album originally from 1981, really are a mixed bag of tricks, we get the Emerson treat to classical music, Jazz-fusion, even cabaret like ditties and some rock a la ELP. There are no denying this man knows his keyboards and he has long ago proved he is a world class musician. While I really like some tracks, others irritate me!! Some tunes sound like they were leftovers from the not so great ELP album: "Love Beach" others sounds like they were taken from the shelf and dusted off for this occasion! Either way, depending what musical style you like, it is bound to annoy people, for this mixed bag of tricks really are too mixed!! I honestly don't like this outing, even though I am a great fan of Emerson and especially ELP, this one falls between chairs. Sorry Esoteric and Emerson for the poor and inevitable rating !!
