Performer Notes
  • Midnight Oil: Peter Garrett (vocals, harmonica), Jim Moginie (guitar, keyboards, background vocals), Martin Rotsey (guitar), Bones Hillman (bass, background vocals), Rob Hirst (drums, background vocals).
  • All songs written by members of Midnight Oil.
  • If Earth and Sun and Moon isn't Midnight Oil's best effort, it's certainly close. The band still sticks to themes that are close to its heart -- the environment, native peoples, and other social causes -- but rarely has it managed to fashion an album full of songs that are as musically intoxicating as on this 1993 release. "My Country" is full of jangling guitars and keyboards; the punchy title track has an infectious singalong harmony; and "Bushfire" adds some mean wah-wah guitar. The Oils managed to score some radio play on AOR and modern rock stations with the bracing "Truganini," the dramatic, piano-tinged rocker "Drums of Heaven," and the grinding shuffle of "Outbreak of Love." A satisfying release for longtime fans and new converts alike. ~ Tom Demalon
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (12/23/93, p.152) - "...Eco-warriors, class strugglers and top-flight musicians, Australia's Midnight Oil have fused politics and song with more unflagging fervor than anyone since the Clash. EARTH AND SUN AND MOON resumes the good fight..."

Spin (6/93, p.80) - Highly Recommended - "...[Midnight Oil] combine intelligent, purposeful social commentary with impeccably structured modern rock arrangements...as usual, the band's utopian passion is eloquently and compellingly expressed. And on some songs, you can even dance to it."

Q (6/93, p.104) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...Aussie rent-a-cause rockers Midnight Oil continue to mine a rich seam of intelligent hard rock with unusual guile and attention to detail....Ultimately it's the Oils' winning way with a chorus which prevails..."

Musician (6/93, p.88) - "...the band shows no signs of going soft after nearly 20 years together...Midnight Oil have always had a way of combining hook-laden choruses with vital rock...an especially potent mixture of guitars, acoustic and electric, over brooding organ and pumping rhythm tracks...."
