4 stars This is one of the best compilation ever released in prog world, because captures all the magic moments this band has in the '70's, here we find all the best pieces, even the longer ones, not only the less longer of Kansas. This is a double album compilation and some of the pieces are more than 10 or even 15 minutes longer, so not a a compilation just for money, is for fans and also for those who didn't know the band very well, and for the begginers aswell. All the essential Kansas tracks are here from the first album from 1974 - selftitled 'till the first one from the '80's Audio - vision from 1980. The listner can easely find some realy great and unforgetable Kansas tunes like:Song for America, Pinnacle and Magnum opus, the rest are also very ok. Some of the pieces from this compilation are live , so another side of Kansas that needs attention for sure, and aswell a new piece Wheels end this second CD. So this is not another worthless best of, is one of the most intristing compilations in symphonic prog world and for sure needs a high rate from me - 4 stars for sure because is well done, capture the most prolific moments of the band and has everything a usual listner or a new one must have in the collection.
