4 stars Excellent value: the two most important (and certainly most prog) albums of this leading Dutch group on one CD. Two suites of 16-18 minutes (the title songs of the two albums) and a number of interesting shorter songs. All in all, the first album is more impressive, especially in songs such as Ebbtide and Storm and thunder, and the instrumental In the mountain. The highlight of the second album is the hit single Maybe tomorrow maybe tonight, which shows off the vocal strengths of lead singer Jerney Kaagman. A bargain CD.

5 stars Appallingly packaged it may be, but this two-on-one CD combines Earth & Fire's two symphonic progressive masterpieces, each with a stunning side-long (on the original vinyl) title track and some equally impressive shorter pieces (most notably the eerie and gothic "Storm And Thunder" and "Fanfare"). The opening "Carnival Of The Animals" is the only weak link, but it's still a solid five star set (even though they could have tacked on a couple of contemporary singles to flesh out the running time).
