Love, Please Close The Door - Earth And Fire - Maybe Tomorrow, Maybe Tonight (Vinyl, LP, Album) download full album zip cd mp3 vinyl flac
What a great surprise, the sound was simply delightful from start to end, the delicate fusion between Psychedelia and Classic Symphonic caught me from the start. Of course the organ sections by Gerard Koerts impressed me, but the highlight of the album lies in the composition and the delicate voice of Jerney Kaagman.
The whole album is impressive, but if I have to select my favorites, will start with the magnificent Carnival of the Animalsa song that represents perfectly the essence of the band, being that the music is oriented towards Symphonic while Gerard Koerts with his Hammond and Kaagman take us back to with such delicacy that I couldn't find any collision of genres.
Also have to mention Love and that haunting Hammond intro that reminds the listener of Bach. But about the mark ofKaagman takes the lead and transports us again to the 60's in Carnaby Street? Baroque and Psyche perfectly blended. Of course, no review of this album would be complete without mentioning the minutes Song for the Marching Childrena brilliant suite that has everything a Prog listener wants to listen, but also the moment in which Jerney Kaagman discovers she's not only a Psych singer with hints of Grace Slick and Mama Cass, but also a fantastic Symphonic vocalist with one Maybe Tonight (Vinyl the most solid voices I ever heard.
The rating is easy, 5 solid stars for an almost perfect album. Review by Warthur Prog Reviewer. Lovely Jerney sounds so confident and varied on this! But although certainly ambitious, the piece sounds like a bunch of fragments joined together with no real cohesion or purpose.
All those fragments individually sound fine, but it's more like an unsuccessful attempt to recreate what they did so well on the long title track from the previous album. It also has a total dud ending, with no big work up to a suitably powerful climax that the piece really needed. Not my favourite of their poppier pieces, and I usually really dig those. Truly wonderful! Slow and heavy commanding guitar riffs punch through the dreamy and sinister Mellotron fuelled atmosphere.
The Koerts brothers provide us with another terrific but far too short! It kind of awkwardly hangs together, but the placid classical acoustic guitar and affectionate vocal from Jerney disguise what is a rather messy and strung-together piece. The fact that this version is named after the catchy single from the album suggests the record company was really pushing the album based on the hopeful success of that piece!
I wonder if it worked? By all means add this one to your collection after those other three, and you'll still have a good quality work that Love them well, even if it lacks a little of the true Earth and Fire magic.
Three stars nonetheless! Copyright Prog Archives, All rights reserved. Please consider supporting us by disabling your ad blocker. Earth And Fire biography Founded in The Hague, Netherlands in - Hiatus between - Disbanded in This top notch had their pinnacle during the early Seventies when they delivered some outstanding 24 carat symphonic rock albums. Unfortunately Lisette had to give up singing because of a serious eye-disease and Kees Kalis left.
Gradually their sound turned into more poppy, culminating into the success of the very commercial song Weekend, reaching 1 and remaining 13 weeks in the charts! Also the following albums "Gate to Infinity" '77Reality Fills Fantasy" '79, reaching 2"Andromeda Please Close The Door - Earth And Fire - Maybe Tomorrow '81, reaching 12 and "In a State of Flux" "82 lost most of the symhonic ingredients.
The albums "Song of the Marching Children" and "Atlantis" belong to the best of the Dutch progrock history. The epic title tracks from both albums between 16 and 19 minutes are recommended: the sound is very warm and melodic with lots of changing atmospheres, accelerations and surprising breaks. The one moment you hear a mellow organ, twanging acoustic guitars and a fairy-like voice from Jerney, the other moment there are bombastic eruptions with majestic Mellotron, heavy floods of organ and some fiery electric guitar work, topped by the powerful voice of Jerney.
