3 stars Kansas are back in full form and in original line up after 20 years, a great comback for the fans and in prog world in general. After another gap of 5 years after previous one Freaks of nature, Kansas released in 2000 Somewhere to elsewhere, agood album where the old sound of the band is present more then ever before. Some pieces has that special atmosphere of the golden era like on Masque, Leftoverture or Point of know return, tracks like Icarus II, has a majestic intro and developed further on in a spectacular arrangements, recaptuering the essence of the classic Kansas sound, even the voice of Walsh in places is little more edged and harsh then before he hasn't lost any of his fire and emotion through the album. Another worthy piece from the album and my fav from here is Myriad a truly great progressive rock tune where all musicians shine, a great come back to form of the veterans. here the pieces are long enought to show us that they are still in bussines and pretty good I must tell, overall a good album but I can't give more then a 3 stars , maybe 3.5. While is pleasent and fairly enjoyble , I think some moments are uninspired like on Look at the time. Anyway Kansas remain on of the most well known band in history with great contribution to progressive rock, we all hope, or at least I hope for another studio album in the future.
