Esbjörn Svensson TrioListen - Leucocyte 2008
9.5
Experimental Jazz
This is close to a "swan song", only in an unconventional way. This new album by E.S.T. was finised in May 2008, one month after Esbjörn tragically died (14 June). It's unlike anything you've heard before by E.S.T., though the trio's original sound persists. Dark, in many places experimental, conceptual and compositional, it completely stirs me up. Maybe not the best and most usual E.S.T. of the whole wonderful catalogue, but, right now, I'm so amazed by it, I can't pin it elsewhere but in the masterpieces bulk.

Brian Eno - Spinner (with Jah Wobble) 1995
7.1
Minimalistic Non-Prog Electronic
It should be interesting that this album is one of the toughest analyzed ambient albums Brian Eno made, at least in the peak of the 90s, yet it is an album without an expressed personality, being more difficult to remember, under the pale and purely creative meadows of ambient music - and abstract various notes.

Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Love Beach 1978
5.5
The story is pretty much known, the regard is pretty much fit into the context. The "legendary" example of horrid acomplishement from otherwise adored, even adulated, artists. Part within the humour, part within the disappointement, part within the deception. Love Beach comes at the end of a honour gone below expectations. The road towards a burn out started even at the Works level, but, indeed, nothing seems to be worser within these supposed Golden Years than this album.

The recommendation goes strictly towards those who take music up as a joke.

Emerson, Lake & Palmer - Welcome Back, My Friends, To the Show That Never ... 1974, Live
8.7
Symphonic Rock
The (relatively expanded view) live performance crowning the
best activity ever of Emerson, Lake & Palmer. In the end,
so many live albums, giving the glimpse of the classic will
come and so many times will the pieces of gold be performaned.
Nonetheless I advise this as the prime reference and, perhaps
even, the keenest move to adhere to.
