2 stars Kansas meets Toto

After Steve Walsh departure from the band and produceing some respectable albums in his solo career, Kansas try to survive without him, and were replaced by John Elefante. So the music, like anybody observe is easy to listen, tipical AOR sound for early '80's, something a la Survivor, Toto and other bands in top back then. It' s quite long that Kansas stop offering some true progressive pieces like in the '70's, concentrating more on FM sound. Some good pieces are to me :Fair exchange and the last one and the longest Crossfire, the rest are mediocre and without any prog elements that difine Kansas name, for example Play on, sound like any piece from Fallen angel album of Uriah Heep - same boogie with AOR sound, total desaster. So that 2 pieces that i mention to be the best doesn't save the album to be a mediocre one in every way, the shining and stunning progressive moments of the Song for america or Leftoverture are gone. 2.5 stars
