4 stars Talking about the connection of Kansas with their first date in Italy ever (28th june 2005), supporting Styx in a short but amazing performance live at such "Alcatraz Club" in Milan, I like to remind you of this box set and its importance , running a good part of their long music career from the early days (listen to "Journey from Mariabronn") untill the period regarding their "AOR" music genre of our times, enriched with a few "hard" passages ...well They could have provided for more and more recent songs to be included into this box-set ,unfortunately lacking of the period from their last reunion in the studio in the beginning of 21st century. In fact the album "Somewhere to Elswhere"- except on "Icarus II" - is not represented enough here, but also They might remind us of their technical skill if They had decided to remaster some other immortal progressive jewels such as "Magnus Opus" or the magnificent ballad "The wall" for example, to be perfectly coupled with "Song for America" and "Cheyenne Antheme" , in the place of the other usual rock hits like "Carry On My Wayward Song" and "Miracles out of nowhere" ( always played during their gigs nowadays).Well I hope they think of their most forgotten songs concerning the early period (do you remember "Apercu" for instance?) ,in order to complete their true very best collection among all the most progressive efforts: so that could represent for me the whole opera by Kansas, witnessing their definitive music heritage...long live Kansas!!
