    Covering three discs and including all the hits, as well as a healthy selection of rarities, The Eternal Dance is not designed for the casual listener; only hardcore fans will remain enthralled through the numerous rarities. Most listeners will be content with the two greatest-hits collections, but this comprehensive box set remains essential for hardcore Earth, Wind & Fire fans. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

  • Critic Reviews
    Entertainment Weekly (12/11/92, p.67) - " this box proves, EWF was more than just a hit factory...often revelatory..." - Rating: B
    Q (4/93, p.96) - 3 Stars - Good - "...possibly the most influential black American group of the '70s, as they touched pop, jazz, R&B, funk and even primitive techno and upped the ante in each area....these 55 tracks tell the tale well..."
    Musician (1/93, p.94) - " awesome box...THE ETERNAL DANCE collects some of the most fluent, centered and elastic pop music ever recorded. Its influence is everywhere..."
