Earth, Wind & Fire: Powerlight (CBS)

Barney Hoskyns, New Musical Express, 12 February 1983

I SAY, let's not groove tonight. Sometimes Earth, Wind & Fire get down on a groove and flashily mess it around. Sometimes they just lie down and snooze in it. After the immense range and soaring heights of Raise! - tracks like 'Lady Sun', 'Evolution Orange' - Maureeece and the smooth ones have put their feet up. Powerlight coasts on auto-pilot.
