1967/ 1976
2 stars I think that Kansas in 70's was the mega response to UK and European Prog. But in 1984? In 1984 Kansas was only a good AOR band. With this spirit "The Best Of Kansas" was compiled with Proto AOR and AOR songs (plus "Perfect Lover", a good new AOR song). Only "Song For America" and "The Wall" are Prog songs, for me. Other songs are for Progsters but sure this is not a good situation for a Prog fan. Sure "The Best Of Kansas" was the spirit of Kansas in 1984. But in my opinion, I'm sincere, I think that this compilation is too for generalsts. Better Chicago in AOR field (sure "17" by Chicago is similar to this compilation but sound better).
