5 stars While my personal Kansas favourite is Point Of Know Return I cannot give this album anything less than five stars. Every song is excellent, both lyrically and musically. Kerry Livgren is one of the greatest song writers of all time. The band are on fire and play their instruments with great skill and enthusiasm. Steve Walsh and Robbie Steinhart share the vocals, which is a Kansas trademark, and they do it so extraordinary well. Especially on Cheyenne Anthem, possibly my all time favourite Kansas tune. The album is also very varied with different moods and tempos being explored throughout.

The album is also a sonic masterpiece; perfectly produced and recorded and a wonderful cover art and clever title it has too. This album should be in the top 10, or at least the top 15, Prog albums of all time. Simply flawless!
