40 Year Itch: Ya Faith Is You

On March 22, 1974, Earth Wind and Fire released Open Our Eyes, a future R and B chart topping album so good rock critic dean Robert Christgau called it a "fucking tour de force" . Whatever elements you love in your favorite Earth Wind and Fire album ( mine is All 'N'All) can be traced back to this, their fifth studio album. You'll find funky horn charts, thumb popping bass licks, soothing ballads,uplifting lyrics, Latin rhythms and Maurice White twiddling his funky thumbs on a kalimba.
