2 stars Drastic measures indeed

Quite better than the predecesor, at least for me, this album was the first Kansas album that don't recive gold or platinum status like the previouses albums. And much important Drastic measures devoid completly from progressive elements that offers early recordings. This is a AOR with some hard rock elements, tipical for that period, more in vein of Toto, Survivor and other bands from early '80's. Steve Walsh was two years gone by the time this album released, and Robbie Steinhardt had left the year before, so for the first time the band was not only a quintet, but also lacked two of their three most distinctive features - Walsh's voice and Steinhardt's violin. With all that the album is not really bad but woth lack of imagination, good ideas, lack of everything. Some good pieces are:Going through the motions, the best from here and Mainstream, the rest are good to listen in your car. So 2 satrs for Drastic measures
