    Now, Then & Forever is a more than worthy addition to the Earth Wind & Fire catalogue.

    It sounds like a lost album that should have come out after 1979’s I Am: a very shrewd approximation of the EWF we know and love, it’s crammed with sophisticated R&B, gossamer-light jazz and powerful, soulful vocals with a positive message.

    Earth, Wind & Fire get to enjoy a rare privilege: their past sound has come back into favor, so without much struggle, they create songs that fit perfectly in the present.

    Now, Then & Forever demonstrates the lasting value of the band's classic sound.
