4 stars The last of Rick Wakeman's decent albums. After this the slide began to show. Maybe it had something to do with mass production and releasing of records, not sure really what happened. No Earthly Connection is an excellent album though and whilst being pretentious at times it has a great concept feel to it. Pointedly stating that music is more spiritual than we really think and of course having the cosmic reference of being a universal language. He transfers those ideas into this album very well.The whole album is continuous but Side 2 commencing with ' the Realisation' really gets the album moving.It has moments of lucid stillness and is very spatial which is unlike any of Wakeman's previous works. Give it a listen.
