EDITORS’ NOTES

The main indication that Earth, Wind & Fire’s gorgeously triumphant Now, Then, and Forever was recorded in 2013 and not in the band's ‘70s heyday is the copyright date. EWF's first album after the retirement of mastermind Maurice White is as effortlessly soulful and finely crafted as ever. Unlike 2005's cameo-filled Illumination, Philip Bailey, Verdine White, and Ralph Johnson keep things in the family here, with minimal guest appearances. The rollicking, horn-driven groove of the single "My Promise" is a particular delight.

Night of My Life - BEST SONG!!!

How in the world is "Night of My Life" the least popular song on this album??? It is THE BEST song - hands down!!! EWF is showing all the crappy "musicians" out there today how it's REALLY done :) And even though Maurice isn't on this album, the whole album is still amazing! The album's promoting single, "My Promise" was good, but for me, "Night of My Life" steals the show!

I Can’t Let Go!! by Swtreet !!!*_*!!! May 24, 2014

Such a Righteous, Soul-Stirring, Rock-Me-Till-I-Grunt creation!! Thought I had ALL of my EWF Faves on 3 cd’s, BUT, here goes # 4!! Pure Genius & Spirit in their sounds. I saw them around 1988 in Mountain View, CA. It’s been too long, will mos’ def be on the front line dancing when they come this way to Sacto or Bay Area. God Bless You All!! I Love You!!
