Various Artists - Back Against the Wall
Review by Gary Hill
There are few people who haven't at least heard of Pink Floyd's The Wall. I would hazard to say that those who have never heard the album are in the minority as well.

Keith Emerson - Band - Featuring Marc Bonilla – Moscow
Review by Larry Toering

I've seen my share of Keith Emerson live. Based on the performance captured here, I would would say I haven't seen his best.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Brain Salad Surgery
Review by Josh Turner
I would not be the first to say that their music has not held up over the years, because it obviously hasn't. Before we count them out completely, it is important to point out that Emerson demonstrated many innovations in music long before the digital age.

Yoso - Elements
Review by Gary Hill

Yoso is an interesting group. It is two former members of Yes (Tony Kaye and Billy Sherwood) and Bobby Kimball of Toto.

Emerson, Lake and Powell - Emerson, Lake and Powell
Review by Larry Toering

When Keith Emerson and Greg Lake enlisted Cozy Powell because Carl Palmer wasn't available at the time, I thought it was a strange idea.

World Trade - Euphoria
Review by Gary Hill
There are many who claim that Billy Sherwood is nearly solely responsible for the song writing and arrangements on Yes' Open Your Eyes album. Listening to this album from him with his band World Trade, there are reasons to buy into this argument.

Toto - Falling In Between
Review by Greg Olma

Falling In Between is the first new material from Toto in almost 8 years. Was it worth the wait, you might ask?

Toto - Falling In Between Live
Review by Gary Hill
I’ve never seen Toto live, but I’ve always enjoyed their music. I’ve only ever owned a handful of the albums and had kind of written them off, but I’ve always respected them as musicians.

Toto - Hydra
Review by Gary Hill

I was never a huge Toto fan. For some reason I’ve always been drawn to this CD, though.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer - I Believe in Father Christmas EP
Review by Rick Damigella
There is something about the composing of Christmas music. The ingredients are not equal parts nutmeg, cranberries and peppermint.

A compilation of tracks from two ELP performances are presented here in a double disc set. These performances are from the King Biscuit Flower Hour radio show.

GPS - Live at RoSfest 2008
Review by Josh Turner
GPS was difficult to assess. While they were great, I felt as if they didn’t bring their A-game.

Toto - Live In Amsterdam
Review by Greg Olma
I remember hearing Toto's "Hold the Line" on the radio back in the '70s. Here we are 27 years later and Toto are still going strong.

Toto - Live In Chicago, IL, November 2006
Review by Greg Olma
I was lucky enough to catch Toto in Milwaukee this last summer. It has been so long since they played the states that I felt a little spoiled getting to see the band twice in less than 6 months.

Sweet - Live: Are You Ready?
Review by Larry Toering

Recorded on August 30th, 2008, at the Morongo in California, by the Westwood One Mobile Recording Unit, this was a major undertaking for them which could not have been done better if you really love Sweet.

Keith Emerson - Off the Shelf
Review by Steve Alspach
I read a review on Amazon – I don’t remember precisely where – that said that just because someone is talented that doesn’t make him good, and the reviewer named ELP as an example. Ergo, Keith Emerson is talented but not good.

Various Artists - Re-Machined: A Tribute to Deep Purple's Machine Head
Review by G. W. Hill

I’m a big fan of Deep Purple, particularly the classic stuff.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer - The Atlantic Years
Review by Gary Hill
This compilation does a good job of representing a nice cross-section of ELP’s work.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer - The Birth of a Band: Isle of Wight Festival
Review by Steve Alspach
Since the two products are essentially the same, this overall review is taken pretty much intact from the accompanying DVD review. Check out that one for more specific details on the video content as the DVD is essentially the same as the video side of this DualDisc - ed.

Emerson, Lake and Palmer - Then And Now
Review by Gary Hill
This two disc set is a live album featuring performances from two different ELP eras, "then" and "now". The "then" material is from Cal Jam `74, and the "now" is from shows on the most recent tour.

Keith Emerson and the Nice - Vivacitas - Live at Glasgow 2002
Review by Gary Hill
Billed as Keith Emerson and the Nice, this recent release is accurate with that name from a technical standpoint, but in some ways it is a little deceptive. While all of the music on the disc does feature Keith Emerson, only the first CD is actually with The Nice, and even then, it's only two of the members of the band (plus the keyboard wizard).

Various Artists - Who Are You - An All-Star Tribute to the Who
Review by G. W. Hill

I like The Who quite a bit. I mean, they aren’t one of my favorite bands, but I do really like them.

GPS - Window To The Soul
Review by Josh Turner
Spock’s Beard is prog rock’s pop equivalent. Dream Theater is prog rock’s metal equivalent. And The Flower Kings are prog rock’s jazz equivalent. So what is GPS?

Review by Gary Hill
How you feel about progressive rock will really have a lot to do with how you feel about this disc.
