2 stars Power continues the radio friendly rock sound that Kansas had developed since Point of Know Return. There is a big noticeable difference though, which is that the guitar riffs sound very sharp and powerful throughout. There is a simple reason for that: Steve Morse is the new lead guitarist! I'm not sure how the guitarist from Dixie Dregs became to be a member of Kansas, but it certainly doesn't add anything that anyone would hope for. With Morse on the axe, it seems to be expected that the music would be more technical and progressive, but this is not so. The only real sound difference is that Kansas now sounds like the Scorpions with a stronger southern rock feel. Granted, the guitar solos are better, but that was never an issue.

Honestly, I'd only recommend this for collectors of either Kansas or Steve Morse music.
