:: 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.



* 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.
** 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.

* NeverLiveItDown: Greg Lake performed standing on an expensive Persian Carpet, which was used to cover up a rubber mat which in itself protected him from electrical shocks after he was electrocuted once onstage. Many, ''many'' interviewers brought up how expensive the carpet ended up being, sometimes clearly to his annoyance.

* EpilepticTrees: Given the bizarre nature of Sinfield's lyrics most of the songs he wrote for them could fall into this. The most notable example is "Still... You Turn Me On" which is often theorized to be a love song aimed at a dead person.


Added DiffLines:

* TrueArtIsIncomprehensible: Pete Sinfield of ''Music/KingCrimson'' fame contributed lyrics to some of their songs. Much like that band any song he wrote for the trio mostly fell into this trope.

** A large portion of the fandom also wants to hug Carl Palmer in the wake of both his bandmates' deaths within a ten-month period. The passing of Music/Asia bandmate John Wetton has not helped matters.

The passing of Music/Asia Music/{{Asia}} bandmate John Wetton in early 2017 (interestingly, he also had Lake's role in Music/KingCrimson during the mid-'70s) has not helped matters.

** An interview from 1970 includes Greg Lake commenting he'd rather commit suicide than do anything other than music. While it wasn't him but his bandmate who would do that nearly fifty years later, it's still wince-inducing.
