Review of No Earthly Connection submitted on 4th October 2003

(Japan LP sleeve) At last! Having waited nearly 30 years for another release of NEC, I'm delighted that time has not wearied this classic innovative RW album one whit. The compositions are tight and integrate earthy funk and ethereal, poignant melodies. Horns, choir and keyboards all blend together beautifully - nobody gets in the way of anybody else and it all comes together in a very listenable and musically satisfying collection. Rick has written and arranged the songs with great sensitivity and style. Brilliant.
