2 stars Hmmm...Iīm kinda confused here. This actually sounds like Kansas again, with David Ragsdaleīs violin sounding really good. This album is listenable and even has som interessting parts that can be concidered prog. Just listen to the middle part of I can Fly.

The album has a pretty raw sound that suits it well. It leaves the impression that Kansas actually care again. The violin is very omnipresent which is really great. The trees donīt grown into the sky though, as this is basically a hard rock/Pop album and not much more. There is still no resemblance to the seventies genialities, but at least this is bearable.

I have to note though that Steve Walsh doesnīt sound well on the album. Where has his voice gone ? Too much booze maybe ?

If you are a fanatic fan this is much better than anything Kansas made in the eighties and in that respect I recommend Freaks of Nature over their eighties stuff.

UMUR | 2/5 |
