Earth, Wind & Fire: Spirit EW&F are the real black MOR, equivalent in their catchy way to the oh-so-expert Carpenters, though of course they're much better because they're black-that is, because the post-Sly and harmony-group usages they've had to master are so rich and resilient. Most of these songs are fun to listen to. But they're still MOR-the only risk they take is running headlong into somebody coming down the middle of the road in the opposite direction.

And the soul powerhouse didn't let anyone down (either commercially or creatively) on the outstanding Spirit, which boasted hits ranging from the optimistic "On Your Face" and the passionate funk classic "Getaway" to the poetic ballad "Imagination. Philip Bailey is as charismatic as ever on "Imagination" and the gorgeous title song.
