5 stars Miracles out of Kansas

While the first three Kansas albums showed great promise and contained a lot of fantastic songs, these albums also included a few weaker moments. This is particularly true of the previous album, the uneven Masque. On that album, the band seemed not entirely sure yet of the direction they wanted to go in. On Leftoverture, by contrast, all of the pieces of the Kansas puzzle fell into place and they created with this album their first masterpiece.

Carry On Wayward Son and The Wall are two of the most well-known Kansas songs and they are standards of the band's live repertoire and have featured on multiple compilations. Miracles Out Of Nowhere and Cheyenne Anthem are likewise true Kansas classics. The entirety of the album is simply superb!

The next album, Point Of Know Return, is my personal Kansas favourite, but Leftoverture is an essential progressive Rock record. A must have!
