2 stars 2.5 really

By this time Earth & Fire goes almost disco in places with pop elements and with less then before prog arrangements. This is their sixth album from 1979 named Reality fills fantasy. Almost on same level with the predecesor, this band almost lost all the prog ingredients of Atlantis and psychedelic moments of first album. The album is not really bad, the opening track, almost 12 min People come , peoples go, goes from pop to a more symphonic arrangements, always good, but not fantastic, the overall atmosphere is kinda icey but manage to keep my intrest for all 12 min, the best track from here together with the instrumental Answer me, kinda spacey filled with good keys and guitars, the rest is more on pop side , even in parts close to ABBA fashion , just listen to Weekend but more complicated in arrangements. So, 2.5 is the fair rate, not bad really, less convinceing then before but not bad album. Anyway I prefere this one over Gates to infinity.
