  • Jethro42 The link I gave you is not representative to the album since it's the only straightforward rockish song. The album is showing more than ever the keyboardist, and classical music influence appears strongly. It's definitely very close to ELP music. The soft parts of ''Panic on 5th Avenue'' reminds me of portions of Camel' The Snow Goose. Old Loves Die Hard could have developed more the arrangements in a group context. I feel that Fritz goes too much solo overall. Great album though.

  • Jethro42 Yeah March of the Eternal City sounds different from their entire discography with its pompous keys riff. I've never notice the similarities of Genesis into their sound (except the singer's voice) but now that you say so, you're right. You can also detect some Yes (Fritz, the keyboardist is strongly inspired by Rick Wakeman) and some Renaissance mainly into the grand piano moments. You're also right that the second part of the album is more linear. Lack of inspiration or they wanted it that way.

  • Jethro42 The 2nd track, ''The School of Instant Pain'' is another highlight on Spartacus.

  • Jethro42 I'm glad Double Dimple finally clicked with you. It surely takes more than a spin to fully appreciate. And all like you, I prefer the title track, but some of the themes come back in Mister Ten Percent. Album is really the best ELP album ELP never did. Its light sides make the bombastic sides more crushing. Album is mindblowing. As for Spartacus, it seems they kept the best for the ending with ''The Sweetest Sound of Liberty'', The March to the Eternal City'', and the title track.
