SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Honorary Collaborator
2 stars In one of the Earth and Fire CDs that I have, there is a clear statement at the CD sleeve that "Earth and Fire is Holand's answer to Genesis". Is this statement right? It depends. If you wanna look at the angle of symphonic approach to music, the statement seems to be right. But if you look at the angle of "similarity" in style with Genesis, well .. it's really far from this, in my opinion. For sure this band is legendary due to the fact that it was born during the glory days of rock and prog music. I love their song titled as "Fanfare" but I could not really enjoy all albums of the band. The main characteristic of the band is a touch of symphonic music with classical influence and female vocal. Don't expect that the music is similar with Renaissance who also featured female vocal (Ani Haslam). These two bands are not alike, musically.

This album is quite weak in composition even though there are some songs which are quite OK. For sure, the title track is quite okay to my ears. Well, at least the guitar solo is quite enjoyable. The inclusion of percussion work in "I Don't Know Why" is quite enjoyable for me personally. I feel like listening to a bit of Santana music. The rest, there is nothing that truly peculiar about this album. The reason I have this album is for the sake of completing my collection, that's it. I do not recommend you to purchase this album for other reason. Keep on proggin' ..!

Peace on earth and mercy mild - GW

2 stars Thereīs not much to say about Earth And Fireīs last album. Of the original members, only singer Jerney Kaagman and guitarrist Gerard Koerts remained (his brother Chris had quit after the previous one, Andormeda Girl). This time the band (or duo) seemed to be a little more in tune with the times, releasing a pop rock album full of 80īs synth sounds. However, the record was not a great success and they broke up soon after this CD was released. This comes as no surprise: they had disappointed their original audience far too many times and failed to find a new one. And their insistence in doing disco tracks at this period of time (disco was long passé in 1982) is remarable: just listen to Hide Away.

As usual, the album is not totally crappy, they always manage to write a few good melodies and produce at least one tune that could have been a big hit at the time: I Donīt Know Why has all the right elements to do so, withg a great chorus and strong rhythm. However, for the prog listener, only the instrumental title track may be of interest. And still, itīs not one of their best. Itīs just over the 3 minute mark and itīs more jazz/rock than prog really. The rest of the CD is just forgetable stuff. Small wonder they call it quits after this one...

In A State Of Flux is for collectors and hardcore fans, only.

Rating 2 stars, barely.

2 stars By the time the 80ies had rolled around and 'prog' had become a naughty word,bands were scrambling for directions or simply packing up their gear and calling it a day. Earth and Fire chose to carry on and play a cross between Euro pop and disco light. On this album Chris Koerts one of the foundi ... (read more)

2 stars Slightly better than either "Reality Fills Fantasy" or "Andromeda Girl", "In A State Of Flux" is a fairly competent pop/rock album. That said, this is a progressive rock website and there is nothing progressive about this record. Moreover, there are thousands of pop/rock albums out there that ar ... (read more)

3 stars This album is a little quirky and you might have to play it quite a few times to appreciate it and indeed you may play it one day and like certain tracks and another day think differently. 'In A State Of Flux' being the title track is a little unusual, as it is an instrumental. 'Twenty-Four H ... (read more)
