2 stars Kansas: Monolith

This album represents the down fall of Kansas. The band seems to have lost its creative spark. Though it may still be progressive it is a boring uninspired attempt. It starts out well with the song "On The Other Side" which probably my favorite song on here, it is a well written, classic Kansas sounding ballad. A reasonably good song is followed up by a terrible song called "People Of The South Wind." "Angels Have Fallen" Is a decent song worth a listening to. it starts out a little quite with the acoustics but a distorted guitar comes in and the song picks up some pace and the song turns out enjoyable. " A Glimpse Of Home" is the last song worth any ones attention off of this album. It sounds as if it would have been a good fit for any of Kansas's previous albums. The rest of the songs are pretty lame. "How My Soul Cries Out For You" is a hard rock song with below average lyrics. "Stay Out Of Trouble" fits the same description as "how my soul cries out for you.". "Reason to Be" is a quiet acoustic ballad that is quite forgettable just like the majority of this album. 2 Stars.
