Earth and Fire albums were a rare find in the 70's. Few were imported and for lovers of King Crimson, Genesis, Pink Floyd, Renaissance, Focus, Greenslade, Van der Graaf, Caravan, Santana and all those great bands, these albums are a must. In my opinion "Atlantis" was their finest album. Its predecessor, "Song of the Marching Children" was mind blowing in places with loads of mellotron. "To the world of the future" was a little more commercial here and there before they moved into pop music as opposed to prog/contemporary. There are awesome keyboard and guitar breaks on this album with experiments into jazz funk and elements of Euro Pop. It is a great album and worth having for the three great tracks that stand out on it. As for "Atlantis"... well no prog rock collection is complete without it!
