Prog Reviewer
3 stars Somewhere To Elsewhere is a return to form for Kansas, after a long period of decent radio rock material. The songs here show a return of the progressive songwriting that initially made Kansas a stand out progressive rock act. One thing that is immediately noticeable on this album is Steve Walsh's vocals seem to have aged a little rough. The vocals just don't soar and aren't as powerful as they once were, but it is totally forgivable given how long this band has been around and touring. I will admit that the music does sound a tad dry at times, but still more progressive than recent releases. The country rock element is still strong, and the opening track "Icarus" has a strong patriotic feel and also gets quite heavy. This album is definitely recommended for any fans of Kansas' earlier and more progressive material, but don't expect to be blown away by anything new.
