The AMG Review Is An Insult...

This is not an adolescent effort at all. Mark Allender's review is an adolescent effort. This is excellent 1970's AMERICAN Prog-Rock!

Getting the "Song For America" single edit is enlightening. It reveals how an excellent song can be truncated and still carry itself well despite the butchering of 10 minutes down to a 3 minute single.

American Prog's Finest Moments

Kansas is undoubtedly the most creative and talented of all American prog groups, and this is the proof. "Down the Road," like "Bringing it Back" from their first album, combines British-esque prog with a country rock sound. The ten-minute title track, "Song for America," is ten minutes of the best progressive music ever to emerge from the studio. The haunting "Lamplight Symphony" lives up to its name, being one of the more classical pieces on the album. "Lonely Street" has some killer guitars, but also grim, real-world lyrics, typical of most Steve Walsh composions. "The Devil Game" rocks, simply put, and the album-closing epic "Incomudro" is downright incredible and possibly the most powerful listening experience you will ever have.
