2 stars This is just awful. Monolith was an ok album allthough not impressive, but this is just too eighties Hard rock edged. Monolith was the start of the end but with Audio-Visions there is no way back. I think the fans at this time realised that the dream was over and the nightmare was about to begin.

Relentless starts the album and itīs a very mediocre hard rock track with an awful chorus which is very eighties like. This keeps up on tracks like Loner and Got to Rock On. Most of the other songs are really boring mid tempo rockers with too nice choruses. There is absolutely no bite on this album. The most interessting songs for prog heads would probably be: Curtain of Iron, Donīt Open Your Eyes and No One Together. On these songs you can still hear that Kansas was once a great band ( itīs only been two years since Two for the Show).

Thankfully there is nothing here that is downright disgusting as there would be on later albums, but that doesnīt make this one much better. Only for the hardcore fans.

UMUR | 2/5 |
