A good start for a great band. No hits on this one, of course but it is Kansas we're talking about here, so there is no shortage of good songs. This one doesn't get much recognition and honestly, I don't play it a lot either but let's see: "Death Of Mother Nature Suite" is a pretty heavy song for 1974, "Journey From Mariabronn" and "Belexes" are good early Kansas prog rockers, and there's a cool cover of J.J.Cale's "Bringing It Back".

Couldn't get into this the way I got into their other albums. The songs meander a bit too much for my taste. That said however, "Death of Mother Nature Suite" is a stunner. Their most underrated song for sure.

All in all, this album is an outstanding debut, a brilliant display of song writing and musicianship, and a great statement of Kansasís musical ethos. This is a must have for any collector of seventies symphonic rock, or American rock music in general.

From: Remastered Reason Date: January 20, 2006 at 23:36
A rather disjointed & complex start. Overall, there are plenty of ideas swirling around on this album. However, the sum of their parts was yet to be discovered. Still, a fun listen of a legendary band in their infant stage.

Expanded edition include: 9. Bringing It Back (Live) Recorded live at the Agora Ballroom, Cleveland Ohio, 1975
