Symphonic Prog

From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

2 stars Steve Walsh, Phil Ehert, and Rich Williams are here, but not much else. "Livgren, where art thou?" A lot of commericalized AOR radio-freindly rock appears here with few redeeming good songs. Only "one Big Sky", "The Preacher", "Rainmaker" and "The Bells of Saint James", keep this from being a disaster. Overall, this is a standard Kansas 80's album ala' FREAKS OF NATURE that missed the contributions of Kerry Livgren. Going through the motions? While it is not as bad as POWER or anything without Steve Walsh, it is not an exciting album. Not bad, not good, just kinda there. Little to no prog at all. 2 stars. If it was judged only on it's rock value, maybe 3.
