I despise Tarkus, and consider ELP almost the forerunners to Dream Theater. Overly pretentious, preachy in a musical sense and just totally dead boring. IMO of course.
I'm surprised you don't like Images and Words
, two DT albums I would've said would be right up your street.
AS I said, I never ever liked ELP but I do appreciate their discography and it is one of the essential prog bands to listen to.
