The 1975 album "That's The Way Of the World" was also the soundtrack for a 1975
motion picture of the same name which featured some of the band members of
Earth, Wind, & Fire in cameo roles. The album includes the ballad "Reasons"
alongside the #1 US pop and R&B hit single "Shining Star" as well as the title
track which reached #12 on the pop chart.
"Before he got into African thumb pianos and otherworldly philosophizing, EWF
founder Maurice White was a session drummer at Chess Studios. EWF's sixth album
is make-out music of the gods." - rollingstone.com
"Earth, Wind & Fire has delivered more than its share of excellent albums,
but if a person could own only one EWF release, the logical choice would be
That's the Way of the World, which was the band's best album as well as its
best-selling. Open Our Eyes had been a major hit and sold over half a million
units, but it was World that established EWF as major-league, multi-platinum
superstars. Fueled by gems ranging from the sweaty funk of "Shining Star" and "Yearnin'
Learnin'" to the gorgeous ballad "Reasons" and the unforgettable title song,
EWF's sixth album sold at least five million units. And some of the tracks that
weren't major hits, such as the exuberant "Happy Feelin'" and the
gospel-influenced "See the Light," are equally powerful. There are no dull
moments on World, one of the strongest albums of the 1970s and EWF's crowning
achievement." - allmusic.com
