Released in 1976, just as prog rock's hold in the popular imagine was starting to slip, No Earthly Connection is, comparatively, a streamlined album by Rick Wakeman. Wakeman shows some slight hints of funk infatuation here -- "The Warning" works out its clavinet songs, with its second part buttressed by brass -- and the entirety of the "Music Reincarnate" side is a bit more forceful than expected in both its rhythms and attack. The other two songs have an element of breathing room -- even "The Lost Cycle," which begins with farting analog synths that never quite disappear over the course of the track -- but they're more distinguished by the flourishes Wakeman lays over the basic track, indications of how the keyboardist is so taken with his technique he thinks of it as nothing special, just something that deserves to be on ample display." - AMG
