I've still got a couple of gatefold sleeves with the lyric inserts. Close to the Edge (beautiful art and gold font), Topographical somethings and another one. Just as a test, I've downloaded the mp3 of Close to the Edge and will see if it still moves me.
That refrain, I get up, I get down is so memorable.
At least their music, unlike that of, say, Emerson, Lake and Palmer or the Mars Volta, was never pretentious. Bombastic, sure, but never pretentious. Bombast is okay; bombast is rock 'n' roll. Pretentious never is, or was.
