"Humans Only" is the fourth full-length album by the American electronic band Earthstar. It was their third and final release for Hamburg, Germany based Sky Records.

"Humans Only" was result of a partnership between Earthstar founder Craig Wuest and Utica, New York-based guitarist and songwriter Dan Hapanowicz, who replaced longtime guitarist Dennis Rea on this album. "Humans Only" presented a far more conventional, softer, more guitar oriented sound than previous releases. It is also the last album on which the Birotron, the rarest of tape loop keyboard instruments, was played by Wuest. The two tracks with "funk" in the title aren't really funk at all but they do reveal a more playful side to Earthstar's mainly electronic music.

The track "Indian Dances" was originally recorded in 1980 as part of the "Sleeper, the Nightlifer" sessions. That album was never released and a shorter, somewhat pared down version was recorded for "Humans Only".
