Cat Stevens - Back To Earth mp3 album

Back to Earth is the eleventh studio album released by the British singer/songwriter Cat Stevens. It was also the last album of contemporary western music that he recorded until An Other Cup, nearly 30 years later.

Cat Stevens was one of several post-folk-pop innocents who came along in the early Seventies and were immensely comforting at the time. Carole King and James Taylor were two more singer/songwriter siblings of this sort, with Joni Mitchell the Mater Dolorosa. Stevens’ charmingly simple tunes had an especially consoling, childlike quality, but while the other artists grew up, he didn’t. Insofar as he’s forsaken Cloud-Kiddieland, Cat Stevens has, on his new album, come Back to Earth. For one thing, the sound and arrangements are attractively muscular, and nowhere more so than in Bad Brakes, an exciting if uncharacteristic exercise in power-chord rock. Elsewhere, Stevens’ trademark, guitar-led syncopation and unpredictable melody making are gratifyingly in evidence. But taken individually, most of the songs are too weak to deserve their excellent arrangements or to keep the singer interested.

Back to Earth is a 1978 album released by the British singer/songwriter Cat Stevens, it was the only album he recorded using the name Cat Stevens after his conversion to Islam in December 1977. On 3 December 1978, the album "Back to Earth" was released. The same day the album was released, Yusuf's father Stavros Georgiou died. Yusuf had no more use for Cat Stevens, having found something that satisfied him a great deal more. As he was unwilling to promote the album "Back to Earth" with a tour, it peaked at only on the Billboard charts, and its singles "Bad, and "Last Love Song"/"Randy" made a poor showing in the charts.

Back to Earth is the eleventh studio album released by the British singer/songwriter Cat Stevens. His final original album under the name Cat Stevens was Back to Earth, released in late 1978, which was also the first album produced by Samwell-Smith since his peak in single album sales in the early 1970s. It would be the first album with his former name (Cat Stevens) included on an album since his Back to Earth album, released in 1978.
