According to Steel Pulse front man David Hinds, Elektra Records informed the band - just prior to the 1984 recording of Earth Crisis - that they wanted the band to sound like then-popular, commercially oriented reggae artist Eddy Grant. Elektra's bid for a mainstream reggae cash-in helps explain the slick, highly polished sound of Earth Crisis. The breezy "Steepin' Out" and the bouncing, poppy "Tightrope" (both of which became permanent additions to the band's live repertoire) kick off the set, buttressed by bright synth lines and lush, layered vocal harmonies.
