Raise! wasn't quite the disaster it was made out to be at the time, but it was their least distinguished overall album since the early days on Warner Bros. with the exception of their participation in the awful Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band film soundtrack in 1978. Let's Groove" was just a recycled mid-tempo tune from the mid-'70s, and everything else sounded desultory and uninspired.

Earth, Wind & Fire had persevered through several stages of R&B evolution: from jazz to sweet soul, from sweet soul to funk, from funk to disco. And with 1981’s Raise! they once again made an effortless adaption from disco to the snappy boogie of modern R&B. It’s amazing that after 15 years EW&F could still compete with up-and-coming innovators like Rick James and Prince, but songs like Let’s Groove and Lady Sun don’t just hold their own, they excel.
