Prog Reviewer
4 stars One of the things that I like from Kansas is the mixture they did of Progressive Rock with Heavy Metal guitars. In one song one could hear "delicate classical" keyboards and violin followed by heavy metal distorted lead guitars.The lyrics of some of the songs are very good, like "The Wall" and "Miracles out of nowhere". In this album, Kerry Livgren was the main composer. The best songs in this album are "Carry on wayward son", "The Wall", "Miracles out of nowhere" (very influenced by classical music) and the "weird song" called "Magnum opus". I prefer the live versions of these songs from the "Two for the show" and "Live at the Whisky" albums, as they are played with more energy and feeling. But this "Leftoverture" album is very good too.
