My second favorite Earth Band album

"1973's Solar Fire being my very favorite. Anyway, Glorified Magnified was the second Earth Band album, released later in 1972, same year as their debut. I think Glorified is quite an improvement over the debut. For one thing, the music is heavier, and there's no songs like "Part Time Man" or "I'm Up and I'm Leaving" which is a plus in my book. I am rather surprised how much of this album bears an unstriking resemblance to Solar Fire, two albums later. Particularly "Meat" (which sounds like a precursor to "Earth, the Circle", particularly the drumming), "Look Around", "I'm Gonna Have You All" and "Our Friend George". So if you like Solar Fire, you're bound to enjoy those songs. "One Way Glass" is actually a remake of a song that appeared on Manfred Mann's Chapter III debut album from 1969, only of course, done in Earth Band style (guitars and synthesizers, rather than horns). "Down Home" is a more straighforward piece, and has, well, a down-home flavor to it. Plus there's a remake of a Dylan song, in this case, "It's All Over Now Baby Blue". The last cut is the title track, it's an instrumental cut, showing off Mann's talents on Moog and organ, and is not unlike "Waiter, There's A Yawn in my Ear" off The Roaring Silence. Great album, and the only reason why I give it a four star, was I feel Solar Fire is the best Earth Band album, which you should start there."
