Album Review

Andrew Hamilton [allmusic.com]

Two strong tracks propelled Ecology up the pop charts: the swaggering, bravado-laden ''Born to Wander,'' written by Tom Baird, and a hard-hitting, rocking rendition of the Temptations' ''I Know I'm Losing You,'' written by Cornelius Grant, Eddie Holland, and Norman Whitfield; the epic remake of the latter is almost eleven minutes of pure funk-rock. Lead singer Pete Riviera had a powerful voice, similar to Dennis Edwards, that could sell a song; the percussion and echo vocals accentuate the classic. The guys do a nice job on John Lennon and Paul McCartney's ''Eleanor Rigby,'' and bass player John Persh's ''Nice Place to Visit'' adds a different twist to Rare Earth's legacy.
