That?, I reply, as any self respecting music lover should know, is an album entitled "Brain Salad Surgery"

I'm with your wife on that one. Wink

 

But that's what's great about music. There's no right or wrong, it's just whatever stirs the individuals soul and we all have different tastes.

beauty, eh

 

I guess ELP is not for everyone!! - How about a bit of "Francis Goya in Moscow"??

That's sounds really nice actually, bet it makes good background music. I'll give it a proper listen sometime.

 

It reminds me a bit of a chilled out version of 'Rodrigo y Gabriela'.

Clicky (skip forward to 6.22 for the best bit)
