4 stars A return to form? Almost. When I first heard this I was really surprised to hear how much this sounded like the CLASSIC Kansas of bygone days. After years of poor and mediocre pop/rock albums like POWER, and the awful DRASTIC MEASURES, this is a breath of fresh air. Too bad it is 11 years since this without new music. "Icarus II", "When the World Was Young", "The Coming Dawn", "Myriad", "llok at the TIme", and "Byzantium" are solid, fine tracks worthy of most classic comparisons. It is obvious that Kansas is a different band with and without the songwriting abilities of Kerry Livgren. The weaker tracks here do, however, bring the album down. I rate this a 4. Somewhere between MONOLITH and MASQUE.
