Earth, Wind & Fire.
Love Provides the Key submitted by Meginator on August 31, 2019, 9:11pm Earth, Wind & Fire will always have a place in my heart, as I performed their music in my high school marching band. Still, I think I’d like them regardless of the personal connection, and this album is a great introduction to their style (though “In the Stone” is a glaring omission). The predominant genre influences are R&B, funk, and pop, but no matter what the group does on a particular track they perform with a signature sound that is all their own. The music is a mix of styles and moods, and the group has a penchant for irresistible hooks; even the ballads are liable to get stuck in your head. For all of Earth, Wind & Fire’s experimentation and flirtation with various genres, though, they always come back to a consistent balance in the instrumentation, making their tracks unmistakably theirs. The album might be hit-or-miss depending on your taste for this type of music, but if you’re into it you could hardly ask for a better exemplar of the form.
