Your daily movement #5

From the bowels of the Prog Rock vault comes your (last) movement of the day... and it's a whopping 7 movements! From the geek minds of Emerson Lake & Palmer:

Tarkus
I Eruption
II Stones Of Years
III Iconoclast
IV Mass
V Manticore
VI Battlefield
VII Aquatarkus



From the ELP overblown prog classic, Tarkus. A true exhibition in excess - nearly 21 minutes of Keith Emerson solo doodling. There's nothing like the tale of a mettalic armadillo going to battle. Many battlefields were fought in prog-rock songs, and by the end of this one I'd like to ride that armadillo tank right over all the masturbatory hammond solos... right into the water, I guess - as apparently this tank is amphibous (Aquatarkus!)

ENOUGH! Bring on Mars Volta's Frances the Mute, already!

Playlist featuring all the daily movements and a few more...
Mars Volta and your daily movement #1: Rush
Your daily movement #2: Genesis
Your daily movement #3: Yes
Your daily movement #3: Sonic Youth
