4 stars This time, Kansas surprised with not one, but two (more) Rock (than Prog) songs instead of one as was usual on previous and later album. Then one little epic instead of longer one (Song for America, The Wall), but this is compensated in form of All the World. But as usual, there are two epics on this album. Album is not worse, but more like more difficult to get into (still comparing to "Song for America" and "Leftoverture"). Still symphonic, melodic, pleasant and thrilling, that's what Kansas is, at least in their golden era (not sure about later works).

4(+), good as usual, but I don't like much first two songs (even they still aren't burden on this album that I would rate with 1 star, no no. More like 3 stars. But they're taking "Masque" from masterpiece rating for me).

Oh, I lost my few hundred words long review, so because I wanted to sum as much of my thoughts as possible, I have to post it as it is. Who survived this loss (once or more times) knows what I'm talking about, how I feel and that I cannot wait for better day.

Whew, at least it's not first review.
