Rick Wakeman - No Earthly Connection (1976)

Try to tell me that Unwound didn't rip off the way this album starts for the opening of Leaves Turn Inside You. Nope, you're wrong, it's exactly the same.

Beyond that, No Earthly Connection takes Wakeman's love for synth-y, symphonic prog into swampier, sometimes funkier territory, and while it doesn't quite attain the highs of his first three solo LPs, it's still totally weird and great.

Track listing:
1. Music Reincarnate
2. The Prisoner
3. The Lost Cycle

Show me the way to the little man
