Don't be fooled by the Bee Gees-esque cover photo, LOVE BEACH is not really ELP-gone-pop. True, many of the songs are more concise and accessible than those on previous albums, and there are a couple of Greg Lake-dominated "romantic" tunes, but those had always been part of the deal. They're still at their classical-rockin' best on "Canario," and half the album is dominated by the 20-minute epic "Memoirs of an Officer & a Gentleman," which stands up well alongside such long-form ELP classics as "Trilogy."
