4 stars this is a really preat album from th egreat KANSAS. true, not all the songs are superb or proggy but still its an outstanding achievement. a lot of people criticise kansas' tendency for pop but i think that their goal was to reach a mass audience and get them to know what prog is through the more rock/pop oriented song and thats just fine by me as long as the goal is achieved and it certainally does in this case. the opening track is excellent with a medieval touch and great violin and vocals. certainally a prog song. after that you get a mixture of different styles but the highlight of the album (besides dust in the wind which everybody know and love) is the shortest track - the spider. only 2:08 minutes but what a pleasure!!! an amazing keyboards/violin instrumental track that lead the song (reminds ELP a little). very fast and breath takink and the rythm section is also doing a great work. im sure anyone who wasnt really into prog that time and bought the album because of dust was simply blown away by this piece of work and was suddenly awaken to something he never heard before. and he loved it. a really good album and a must have for any kansas fan. their creative peak alongside LEFTOVERTURE.
