4.0 excellentBrynden Tully | April 2nd 11

If you got tired of the organ-fucked album "Emerson, Lake, and Palmer," then "Tarkus" might be a better match for you my friend. Its way more action-packed, think of running with a spear through a jungle stabbing at anteaters. Thats basically what reminds me of this album. Its a damn keyboard wank-fest, but I strangely must say it is very relaxing. Its like the music is so charged that you feel that its doing all the work for you and you have no need to be charged yourself, so you are automatically relaxed. But still, the only problem with it is that I don't think there is enough keyboards.

Tarkus ends up in the same pitfall Rush's 2112 would 5 years later: while the 20-minute epic title track is everything a progressive fan could wish for, the record's second half is considerably less interesting. Despite some good moments in Bitches Crystal, Infinite Space and A Time and A Place, the annoying Jeremy Bender and Are You Ready Eddy? feel very much out of place, making Tarkus uneven and not a pleasurable listen as a whole. It really is the title track that puts this up so high.

Fuck punk rock. It gave us a couple nice things before getting boring, but at the end of the day, fuck it for convincing entire generations that 10 minute hammond organ & moog solos are a bad thing.

I enjoyed the previous more, but this is still and essential prog gem. Highly reccomended.

3.5 greatNightmareCinema16 | November 12th 12

It's mostly pretentious mockery mixed with talent, flamboyance, and such. What more could there possibly be?

3.5 greatTheNotrap | June 28th 12

The opening title track still remains one of the finest pieces of progressive music ever released, but unfortunately the other songs downgrade the overall quality of the album.
