Point Of Know Return is my favourite Kansas album and one of my favourite records of all time. The previous Leftoverture album was already a masterpiece, but with Point Of Know Return the band reached perfection. I just love everything about this album!

Kerry Livgren is such an incredible songwriter and some of his very best songs are on this album. The songs are full of urgency and emotion and there is a great flow from one song to another, listen for example to how the busy The Spider continues seamlessly into Portrait (He Knew). The variation is another aspect of this album that I really like. The whole creative range of the band is wonderfully represented here. This is well exemplified by how the reflective Dust In The Wind sits perfectly between the albums two most hard edged songs Lightning's Hand and Sparks Of The Tempest.

Kansas best and an absolute masterpiece of progressive Rock
