Down To Earth was the follow-up release to Nektar's most successful and popular previous album Remember The Future. Earth was a bit of a 360 degree turn for the band. The album is a loose concept album based around a circus, complete with banter from a German accented ringmaster in between some of the tracks (provided by Hawkwind's Robert Calvert). The songs are mostly short in nature (the longest clocking in at just over 6 minutes) and overall it is more commercial sounding. Down to Earth" and "Remember the Future" are very much in the same vein, and quite different from the rest of the Nektar catalog. The keyboards are downplayed, and they even have a horn section on a couple of tunes, something rarely heard on prog rock albums.
