4 stars A very overlooked and underrated Kansas release from 1975. Only "It Takes a Woman's Love to Make a Man" and "It's You" fall short of being wonderful. They are more pop-single oriented tracks. Everything else here is pure American Prog/Rock from the masters. "Icarus", "Mysteries and Mayhem", "The Pinnacle", "All the World" are great tracks, and are worthy of praise. I think this was the third Kansas album I bought back in the day, after POINT OF KNOW RETURN and LEFTOVERTURE. I remember thinking it was rougher than the other 2 albums, but enjoyable all the same. It is not a masterpiece, but it is excellent nonetheless. 4 solid stars.
