Review by Evolver
SPECIAL COLLABORATOR Crossover & JR/F/Canterbury Teams
5 stars After reintroducing themselves with an impressive comeback album, "The Prelude Implicit", in 2016, Kansas of course had to tour and give us a live album.

The chose to give us a complete performance of "Leftoverture", along with a big helping of classic Kansas tracks, and three from their latest album.

Astonishingly, this may be the best Kansas live album in their catalog.

Focusing on the seventies track, they ignore completely the albums "Monolith" through "Always Never The Same", and it appears to have been a smart decision. This group seems to flourish in the most difficult passages of Kerry Livgren's epic compositions.

"Icarus II" and "Icarus" (yes, they are played out of order here) are both breathtaking, as are most of the set.

The performance of "Leftoverture", from start to finish, is breathtaking.

Even the tracks from "The Prelude Implicit" come off well, the live setting adding energy to the performance.

If you were wondering if these new Kansas album were worth checking out, absolutely they are!!!
