4 stars This is the perfect Kansas live album to own. Coming after the last of their five great albums, and just before the decline in the quality of their output this album contains a multitude of great songs. And Dust In The Wind. I am ashamed to say that I only have the original single CD version of this album (I didn't even know about the two disk version until I look at the page for this album here), so that is all I can comment on.

The songs are all energetically played, many at blinding speed. While playing at that sped is great, it sometimes makes for sloppy performances. But that's okay, it also makes for a fun album.

The best song here, is the band's magnum opus, Magnum Opus. It begins with a collage of spacy noises, progressing into the glorious opening, propelling into the wild midsection, and marching into the grandiose ending.

I can only hope I will be just as thrilled when I get the 2 CD version.
