    The title track is pretty much a top five rock song ever.

    Tarkus is my fave by ELP. Back in the day, if you had the lp, the entire side one of Tarkus took you on such a journey, and the album art, with the comic strip adventure of the Tarkus critter-machine. Just so science-fiction cool. This album still sounds like music from some future post apoco dark ages or something. Heavy, man.

    glad they fixed the track list. Tarkus > GOD (as a song, as an album and as a tank)

    For those who love the cover, I made a persona (widget for skinning your Mozilla Firefox). You can get it here: http://www.getpersonas.com/en-US/persona/102897

    This is an amazing album. The tank represents a lot of things for me. Including myself in an odd way.

    Years ago I bought this album for the beautiful cover, turned out to be a great record for listening too. :) Really magnificent.

    20+ minutes is waayy too long for the generation of today to follow; that's why they "broke" it up into it's sub-tracks. Oh yeah, that is one bad-kick-ass tank!

    Not sure of its sexuality, but I think it's one bad-ass tank. (Emerson, Lake & Palmer fan group)

    This is perhaps one of my favorite ELP albums of all time, every track is worth listening to. Definitely the peek of their career together.

  • _Tarkus_

    I don't have to look it up. I understand why Tarkus is not listed as one song here. It depends on the release, as to whether or not it's broken up into individual parts.

    3) @ Solarion: Yes, It's called Reactivated Tarkus. Might be interesting. Download here: http://trapeze.meet2music.com/mp3/

    1) Tarkus Isn't listed because it is made up of 7 smaller songs. Look it up. 2) The track list is WAYYYY out of order here.

  • _Tarkus_

    I could do without Are You Ready Eddy?, but the rest of the album is mostly a classic, especially the epic title track (absent from the track list here).

    Amazing, yes. And the only ELP album that doesn't feature an acoustic piece by Greg Lake!

    Amazing album.

    Interesting fact: A spanish band called Urban Trapeze seems to have done a sequel to this album. I'm trying to find it.

    Ugly cover? The cover is just genial, just like Toony said! The A-side is also something genial, but B-side's songs aren't that great... Well, Bitches Crystal is good.

  • Toony

    To get the idea to write a song about a tank/armadillo hybrid and then naming the album after it and then even putting it on the cover needs a mad genius,it's really awesome

    If you think that's an ugly cover you should check out the one for mars voltas de-loused in the comatorium...
