Originally released in 1973, Brain Salad Surgery was the fourth studio album by the Progressive Rock trio, and the first under their Manticore Records imprint. Sanctuary.
There's a feeling almost like sloppiness to this new edition of one of ELP's Classic albums. While some elements are ok, others not so and it's the new inclusions that feel like they've been added at the last minute. The packaging is let down by not reproducing the original diecut sleeve for the album and the 2014 remixes are a farce (especially the new 5.1 ). Thankfully I did not buy this set solely for the new mixes, if I had I would be very disappointed. All this money for a vinyl copy of the album and two previously unreleased tracks has left my bank balance lower with not much to show for it. Even some of the pack-ins feel like they've been added to this edition at the last minute, especially the documentary DVD which doesn't even form part of the main set, it's in a separate card sleeve floating around inside with the record. Don't waste your money on this overpriced so called super deluxe set. Buy the 2008 SACD edition " Brain Salad Surgery ", if you can find it for a reasonable price. The original album is a five star tour de force, this 2014 repackage is embarrassing and pointless.
