Album Review

The Toronto quintet I Mother Earth was the subject of a bidding war as a result of their riveting live performances, which blended their melodic heavy rock with poetry readings and other performance art leanings. Led by brothers Christian Tanna on drums and Jagori Tanna on guitar, the band signed with Capitol and released their Mike Clink-produced debut Dig in 1993.

Dig yielded three moderate radio hits in the driving "Levitate," the incendiary "Rain Will Fall," and the kinetic "Not Quite Sonic." Frontman Edwin was a powerful vocalist who easily cut through the band's music, which combined traditional hard rock with percussive elements to create a unique style. Other standout tracks included the spacey, Doors-like "So Gently We Go," and "No One," which highlighted the Santana-influenced guitar work of Jagori. A heavyweight debut by a dynamic band that showed great instrumental prowess combined with a strong sense of melody.

Customer Reviews

An often missed pure gem….

Shocked there is not one review. IME was in one of the biggest bidding wars in record history after just a handful of shows. This album was released at the beginning of the seattle sound that was emerging. A Canadian act with an absolute gem of a guitarist. Although not a huge seller, this album is a work of art, tons of money in production, and one that many players have in their collection. If you have to pick a rock album from 1993, there are few that can even match this gem… what a cover….just buy it.

One f&*^kin review?!?!?

Come on people…IME blends top notch musicianship, songwriting, and atmosphere. They blend hard rock, Santana-esque, pop riffs in a way that keeps you coming back. This is steady rotation material, and so is there follow up album “Scenery and the Fish.”

great debut..great band still!!!

really strong effort by these guys...good songs,good vocals,EXCELLENT musicianship, its got it would be nice if iTunes could complete their catalogue by adding "Quicksilver Meat Dream", "Blue Green Orange" and my personal fave of theirs, "Scenery and Fish"

Years Active: '90s

Talk of Canadian rock bands may conjure up images of the Guess Who or Bachman-Turner Overdrive, but Toronto quartet I Mother Earth is a modern update combining a wide range of influences, including jazz fusion, funk, and progressive rock. Add a pinch of Canadian counterparts Rush and dashes of artists as disparate as Santana and King Crimson, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Primus, and Jane's Addiction and Smashing Pumpkins, and you're bordering on I Mother Earth's expansive collage of styles. The group...
