2 stars Earth Moving is probably Mike's least progressive album. Not bad for pop, but it didn't really succeed commercially, my copy is a cutout. I'm pretty sure this one started to be cutout fairly soon after it's release. For me it's mostly notable for having Adrian Belew doing only lead vocals for the first track, Holy. I have to think, what a squandered opportunity. The Maggie Reilly track is kind of nice, but wait, no credit for the drum machine in the booklet? Drum machines just get no respect. Most of what you'll hear here is stereotypical '80s music. If I had to get rid of some of my collection, this will be one of the first to go. I don't think I could find it a good home, unfortunately. Fortunately, Mike veered back into prog with his next release Amarok.
