THE MAN SPEAKS
Allen Bondar | Grayling, mi. United States | 01/31/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love Keith and this is a must album for anyone that admires his talent. It is one thing to keep ones interest with synthesizers, organ, and production techniques but he proved a good point by doing an album with minimal instrumentation. This album I feel, bares his artistry and brings you to the root of his awesome talent. Keith, perhaps you read my critique' on the Honky album and decided to take my idea. If you did, you owe me a beverage or two. Thanks, Al."
This Is Keith Emerson without the fanfare... period.

"You know K.E. from The Nice? You know K.E. from Emerson, Lake & Palmer? You know K.E. from at least a couple of movie scores hes done? If you answer YES to all of this questions or at least most of them, then you konow what K.E. is all about and what he is capable of... Now with his performance in this recording he's showing the world -better yet, he's reminding the world- his passion for classical music, from which he draws his marvelous skills, without compromising on elaborate arrengements and steping out of the limelight of art-rock and/or progressive-rock. The playing is superb, that's why he IS still the wizard of the keyboards in the rock music scene.

To those readers who are NOT familiar with K.E. life long work this recording IS NOT for you or where you should start listening tho him, instead I recomend you should start where most of K.E. true fans started: Listening to ELP's FIRST album, then if you like what you hear follow his recordings in cronological secuence, going back in time to The Nice every once in a while, and then and only then, you come back to "Emerson Plays Emerson" for a full enjoyable experience of this output.

I know that I didn't say anything about the songs in particular, but that's just it, my humble opinion IS NOT about the songlist, IS ABOUT THE ARTIST and the work contained herein."
Absoluely great

"From romantic ballads to honky-tonk jazz, Emerson shows a great wide range of his talent with clear and sharp piano tones. My wife deeply fell in love with his music. If you love great piano music, there will be no regret."
