5 stars Leftoverture is a masterpiece in my ears as it is nearly perfect, only What´s on My Mind is weak. Besides this one song every song on this fantastic album is a classic.

The album starts with the hit Carry on wayward son ( for some reason songs like these could be hits in the seventies. It would never have happened today) that has all a Kansas song needs. Great vocal harmonies, a good hard rock riff and beautiful keyboards ( organ). Next song The Wall is a beautiful song with one of the most memorable vocal melodies ever in a Kansas song. The album ends with Magnum Opus which is just a beautiful epic song. Everything just makes sense on this album. Steve Walsh has never sung more beautiful than he does on Leftoverture and everybody just seems like they´re having a good time and it shows.

If you´re new to Kansas or prog rock start here. This is a true masterpiece.

UMUR | 5/5 |
