If Open Our Eyes cover artwork didn't clue you in that these guys are hippies, then listen to Maurice White espousing a post-Coltrane African-centered Christian theology, from "Devotion" (a showcase ballad for Philip Bailey's lush falsetto voice) to the stomping funk of "Mighty, Mighty" (E.W.F.'s first Top 40 single). This may be their first album to fully explore the group's trademark symbols, including positing the kalimba as a link between Africa and America on "Kalimba Story." Brilliant producer Charles Stepney worked with Joe Wissert to create a soaring, airy tone for White's increasingly confident mix of '70s rock motifs.
