* BrokenBase: There's two extremes when it comes to this band, either you see them as everything wrong with both progressive '''AND''' classic rock in the 70's, or they're one of the most remarkable bands on the progressive-era with their first four studio albums being prog classics.

* SeasonalRot / CreatorKiller: ''Works'' started their decline, but ''Love Beach'' was the final nail in their coffin. [[JustifiedTrope To be fair]], they only made the latter album because they owed their label another album and were already planning on disbanding anyway.

* FriendlyFandoms: There's a good deal of overlap these days between ELP fans and Music/Yes fans; both bands were progressive rock icons, and the creators themselves were quite friendly over the years.

** Specific example with ''Love Beach.'' Based on its reputation, one would think it's one of the worst albums of all time. The truth is that it's closer to ''average'' than ''bad''.

:: Overall, the metaphors arguably make sense in the context of the song's depiction of the human race's decadence, but they're still pretty confusing.

* EvenBetterSequel: While their first album is considered strong, their second, ''Tarkus,'' is considered one of the best progressive rock albums ever made, and emblematic of the genre.

** There's also some overlap between fans of ELP and fans of Music/KingCrimson, especially the latter's earlier stuff; Greg Lake's involvement with both likely has something to do with that.



** Hell, some even want to hug Greg Lake given both his harsh treatment at the hands of the press and his quiet, but apparently fierce struggle at the end of his life, which he kept to himself. This approaches StoicWoobie territory, however.

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: Several of Lake's ballads. "From the Beginning" and "Watching Over You" are the quickest that jump to mind.
** Emerson and Lake had occasionally turbulent periods in their partnership, dating back as early as ''Tarkus'' according to some sources. How, though, did they finish out their last concert? By embracing one another onstage.

** Excerpts from "First Impression, Part 2" have even been used for the theme song and incidental music of [[Creator/TheBBC BBC]] Television's prime-time show "The Generation Game" -- though not the bit about "seven virgins and a mule", obviously.
