Review by Mellotron Storm
PROG REVIEWER
4 stars EARTHRISE from New Jersey formed in 1975 and released this one album back in 1977. The sound quality could certainly be better but the music here is excellent. A trio of drums, bass and keyboards these guys do really bring ELP's debut to mind. Two of the guys also play guitar so we do get some of that as well. The drum work and keyboard play are really at a high level and the bass is prominant.

"Eden's Child" opens with laid back vocals and floating organ then drums come in as it gets a lot fuller. The synths are prominant when the vocals stop. Vocals are back. A great sounding instrumental section 3 1/2 minutes. Love the piano as the synths also join in. Organ 5 minutes in then the vocals return as it settles back. "Arcturus" opens with keyboards and atmosphere then it picks up a minute in with a beat. It kicks in after 1 1/2 minutes before settling into a good groove with prominant bass. Vocals join in as well. The organ rips it up after 3 1/2 minutes when the vocals stop. Vocals are back 7 1/2 minutes in.

"Earthrise" is an excellent instrumental and I really like the sound before 4 1/2 minutes. "New Clear Dawn" opens with keyboards and drums. It settles as the organ joins in and synths follow. Check out the drum solo after 4 minutes until 7 1/2 minutes in when the organ kicks in with bass. I like the synths after 8 minutes too. An explosion late as the song disappears.

A big thankyou to Todd for allowing me to hear something so rare. I debated with my rating because the sound quality could be a lot better but man this is just too good to not give it a low 4 star rating.

4 stars There is life in the farthest corners of the empire. It truly is. And what's more, there is brilliance and vision too. I am constantly amazed by the number of bands that through the decades struggled and struggles to get their Music out. Back in the 70's, from where Earthrise originated, the only way to get Music out was by way of record companies or by self funding. Earthrise did the latter. As a consequense, apart from being slightly out of touch in 1977, they lost the opportunity of the major companies pushing for them through ads and what not. I am speculating but I think that may have been the case.

The visual side of the album is stunning. It baffles, intrigues and fascinates me. The pyramids turning up in the skies, perhaps going in for landing. It is brilliant. Then there's the music. There are only four tracks but four great ones.

"Eden's Child" opens up the record. At first I thought it to be too much in the pop tradition, heading for the charts and imitating later Chicago, or something in that vein. The first inclination soon wears off though, when keyboards of the finest degree kicks in. Spacey Moog and tasteful organ. This is one hell of a song. Superb!

"Arcturus" starts ever so gently but holds a great beat and rhythm. Great latter part of instrumentation and the organ is wonderful. The title track is a beautiful, spacey instrumental working really well. The ending "New clear dawn" is more up-tempo and holds a great drum solo. I am usually no fan of drum solos but this one is really good.

It's really sad that this much talent went unnoticed back in the day. There is so much promise here and I wonder what they might have come up with if they had had the opportunity to record further. The resemblence to ELP is alright but Earthrise is really an entity of their own. There is a lot of spacey sounds that differ from ELP. It is a very competent and fine blend of symphonic textures but also a slice of pop (in the first track especially). The vocals are great, the instrumentation superb. This is one ot the finest discoveries I've made in 2015. If you can get a hold of this album, buy it. I would.

3 stars A very obscure release from an American trio in the late 1970's. Along with bands like Arabesque, Earthrise formed a very small minority of American prog bands during that era and, like Arabesque, this stands out as one of the better obscure albums lost in music history.

There is no guitar on this album so the keyboard stands prominently in the arrangements, though the drum and bass players are represented too. The production is quite weak and muddy, but is still enjoyable if played on good speakers. The music is very much in the symphonic prog style of the day, taking quite a bit of inspiration from bands like ELP and Triumvirat, with a similar sound at times to some of the neo-prog acts to come, like IQ or Pallas, but not quite as well orchestrated. Because the 70's were so saturated with symphonic prog around the world, many of the melodies and solos sound very familiar but the album still conveys a surprisingly high degree of originality.

The album is primarily instrumental; though there are some vocals now and again, most of the music is in the same vein as the title track "Earthrise" (disclaimer: this is not a Camel cover), vehicles for extended keyboard soloing. In terms of composition, the album is a bit shaky; there are some strong arrangements at times but it is often just solos bridged to other solos.

Much of the album's appeal comes from the mystique and obscurity shrouding it. The surreal cover is also a plus; it's enchanting and is an accurate representation of the album's content. Overall, this is an album that, should you come across it, you should probably pick it up to put it on every now and then, letting the novelty of its obscurity work its magic. If you're tired of listening to the same old stuff you've been listening to for years and want to go on a journey somewhere you've never been before, this is probably a good path for you to take.

4 stars There are few prog bands that I know that are as obscure as this New Jersey trio Earthrise. Maybe Burning Candle from Germany and Albatross from Rockford, Illinois. I first heard of Earthrise in 1996 through a prog rock mail order catalog that described them as "Amazing band that plays four long c ... (read more)
