Can they still sing and jam? That's probably the one thing that any former fan wants to know about the Earth, Wind & Fire lineup.
Luckily, the answer is yes. They seem more talented than ever, and in their first studio album of new material in eight years, we're taken back to their true form with some smooth and silky hits.
'My Promise' will have you grooving along to stunning, effortless vocals and impressive instrumental arrangements, whilst 'Guiding Lights' is a slow-paced, sultry tune that's bliss for the ears and the perfect 'bedroom track'.
Eager fans will want to indulge in the deluxe version of the compilation, which includes the timeless disco and soul anthem classics 'Boogie Wonderland', 'Let's Groove', 'September', 'After The Love Has Gone', 'Fantasy' and 'Shining Star'.
'Now, Then & Forever' is a true gem. With just a couple of tracks that seem out of place and the odd 'Belo Horizonte' placing, there's not much to complain about.
'Now, Then & Forever' is released Monday October 21.
