5 stars "Earth" is one of the early albums that sound different than his latter works. It sounds more ethno rock than electronica. This was also one of the most early and original examples of world music genre but at that time it was more progressive than today's comercial works. Something similar was also done by other prog artists e.g. EMBRYO, POPOL VUH, BRIAN ENO ("My Life in the Bush of Ghotsts) etc.

A lot of various ethnic instruments and percussion are heard besides the usual bas, drums, guitars and keyboards. Vocals are very pleasant. Sometimes they're sung in English other times in world ethno vocalization. The first track "Come on" is the the only straighter rock track. It sounds out of place and it would be better left out. Other tracks are really something special and magical. Sometimes this sounds similar to APHRODITE'S CHILD - "666" but better.

Listening to this music is like a adventurous journey to the exotic worlds. Not an introductory album for a prog rock fan but if you like ethno than just grab it! This is a truly unique masterpiece of progressive world music!
