Flashback Friday Album Review: “In Another Land”

Today we take a gander at another Larry Norman release. Although the follow up to "Planet" (So Long Ago the Garden) has its moments, the follow up to that one, "In another land" (#3 in the trilogy) feels more so like the "Only Visiting This Planet" sequel, and is a standout as one of Norman's …
