Earth Omen is the third album by American rock band Frijid Pink, released in 1972.[1]

The band, recently abandoned by their original singer and guitarist, shed their blues-based rock sound and picked up a more progressive rock sound (reminiscent of Uriah Heep), with added psychedelia. This was largely thanks to the addition of singer Jon Wearing, guitarist Craig Webb, and keyboardist Larry Zelanka (Zelanka was only considered a guest on the previous two albums).[3]

The German CD release (Repertoire Records) features two bonus tracks.
