Symphonic versions of already bombastic/orchestral material is a lesson in redundancy. This release had me convinced that Kansas had lost it. The sensational 'Somewhere to Elsewhere' (2000, Magna Carta) proved me VERY wrong.

koogles my old mate forgive my brutal honesty but you're wrong on this one Symphonic versions of already bombastic/orchestral material are a lesson in ESSENTIAL! I love this album and no other band could pull a project like this off as well as Kansas. A definite star in the twinkling galaxy of my collection.

Although I must ask what the heck is 'Eleanor Rigby' doing here? Huh? HUH? What is this? Beansas? Kantles? Bah.

I really enjoy "Eleanor Rigby" played by Kansas. I like this Beatles song and find Kansas have made a great version.

From: justjay Date: December 1, 2004 at 21:58
This album is a masterpiece. I agree with illimey, nobody else could pull something like this off!!! I don't even have words to describe how great it feels just to listen to it.

Es un hecho que en un momento específico del tiempo muchas bandas decidieron lanzar versiones sinfónicas de sus grandes éxitos, en lo personal no son de mi agrado en general, alguna que otra canción puede elevar su sonido y ser memorable, pero si hay algún grupo que puede y merece lanzar un disco así, es KANSAS!!, sus arreglos y su estilo musical se prestan a la perfección para lograr fundirse mejor que nadie, cada uno de los pasajes están muy bien logrados, si hay algo que reprochar es que no haya sido un disco doble dado que dejaron fuera muchas canciones importantes de cada época, es cierto que el Cover de los Beatles pudiera sorprender en lugar de algún tema original, por otra parte es bienvenido que las bandas rindan tributo a su héroes que los inspiraron para llegar a ser lo que hoy en día representan, Leyendas de la música americana!
