The vocals, drumming, and production of Maurice White. The soaring falsetto of Philip Bailey. The fat, thumping basslines of Verdine White. That fantastic, piercing brass. All these ingredients combine to make Earth, Wind & Fire one of the premier R&B/jazz/funk bands of the 20th century and beyond.

"Got to Get You Into My Life" is a jazzy, soulfully swingin' take on the Lennon/McCartney composition. "Fantasy," perhaps the band's finest moment, combines stylistic percussion with inspiring harmonies. "Can't Hide Love" is finely crafted R&B sharpened to a glistening point by a tight horn section. "Love Music" is an uplifting groove that sounds brand new decades later. "Reasons" is a perfect R&B ballad, and Philip Bailey explains in the liner notes that though it's become a wedding song, it's really about a one-night stand. The explosive, funky "Shining Star" exudes spirituality.
