I Am (1979)

There’s a song on Earth, Wind and Fire’s I Am album called ‘Let Your Feelings Show’ but the album is more forced than resonant. I couldn’t ‘feel’ it, so my feeling showed all right, but in a thud. Some will say I’m reliving the past with my reviews of old music, but let’s face it, the older music was better, except not always here. After the Love has Gone, Boogie Wonderland and Star lift the album slightly. The album doesn’t make for a cohesive whole either, there does not seem to be a unifying thematic force, and it is mostly limp and one note musically.  So much for an album titled ‘I Am’.

2 1/2 out of 5 stars
