3 stars This was EARTH AND FIRE's follow-up to their classic "Song Of The Marching Children". It's similar in style to that one but in my opinion not nearly as good. The highlights for me are the mellotron and female vocals but neither are enough to save this one from being simply average.

"Atlantis" is the side long opener that features strummed guitar and vocals a minute in. It's fuller with mellotron before 2 minutes. Guitar is back after 3 minutes. Vocals are back 4 1/2 minutes in as it picks up. A calm before 7 minutes with flute. It kicks back in at 8 minutes. Guitar before 10 minutes. Vocals 11 minutes in as it settles. Guitar 13 minutes. Vocals are back. It settles 16 minutes to the end.

"Maybe Tomorrow, Maybe Tonight" opens with heavy drums and organ. Vocals follow. Guitar solo after 1 1/2 minutes. "Interlude" is dreamy early with mellotron. "Fanfare" is dominated by drums and vocals. Drums, guitar and mellotron standout on the instrumental "Theme From Atlantis". "Love, Please Close The Door" opens with acoustic guitar as reserved vocals join in. Lots of mellotron 2 1/2 minutes in.

Barely 3 stars as far as i'm concerned.
