Cool record! There's a great lick in the first song.

From: Rob Date: October 10, 2001 at 11:04
Carry On Wayward Son - one of the best songs ever written!

From: Thanos Agg Date: November 7, 2001 at 19:05
One of the best albums!!! Just incredible!!!! ANYONE MUST HAVE IT!!!!

From: koogles Date: June 30, 2002 at 18:02
"Carry On Wayward Son" was one of those songs that proved that a band didn't need to leave their progressive rock chops at the door in order to achieve a hit single. Beyond the saleable complexity of that absolute classic, there are plenty more moments of brillance on this album. "Miracles out of Nowhere", "The Wall", "What's on My Mind" and "Cheyenne Anthem" all qualify. And just when you thought they couldn't top themselves... "Point of Know Return"!! WHAT A BAND!!

From: Rockforever Date: August 2, 2002 at 6:17
The superlative Carry On Our Wayward Son will forever be a rock classic, but there's more to that on this record. The last track, with it's multiple sections, is perhaps the biggest embodiment of Kansas' progressive tendencies. Great musicianship and complex yet accessibly melodic songwriting combine to make a classic album, where Kansas ably fuse prog rock with heartland rock. Many say Point of Know Return was better, but I think this has the edge.

From: Zenari Date: May 29, 2003 at 1:16
Just perfect! A neat prog rock, really can't belive it was recorded in 76. "What's on my mind" and "Carry on wayward son" are great!

From: swed Date: December 16, 2003 at 23:46
Never heard the album but "Carry on my wayward son" is probebly one of the best songs ever recorded . As I am a Rush fan I think that it is the best Rush song that Rush never did !!! He he

First off, this is one of the coolest album covers of all time. I've felt like that poor guy before, haven't you? Obviously, a rock classic and not just because of "Carry On". "What's On My Mind" and "Opus Insert" are overlooked classics, and "The Wall" is a masterpiece of emotion. There's good reason why this one sold like it did.

From: illimey Date: February 25, 2004 at 23:37
If ever there was a classic rock album that everyone should own - this is it. It is not the Kansas album I play the most, but that is because it is basically too good to simply 'play'. It needs dedicated listening time, and life is too busy for that luxury. It is intricate, intelligent, supremely melodic and overflowing with talent. And yes - the cover is indeed remarkably cool! The Point of Know Return cover is also cool... cool enough to make me buy the album on sight! I returned for more.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 27, 2004 at 0:23
What a great album opener "Carry On My Wayward Son" is. Too bad that this was as good as it got here. "Dust In The Wind" is one of the most annoying classic rock tracks, and the prog songs are boring. 5/10

From: Propane Date: December 1, 2004 at 14:00
'Prog rock'?!? Whatever. This album was making the crtics question the members as to how to categorize the ingenuity back then, as it is obviuosly doing now. How about hard rock? That's what it is. Nice innovative tunes on this one.

From: Remastered Reason Date: January 21, 2006 at 0:28
There is so much more to like here than the obvious. Kansas had sifted their abundant coffers vigorously to omit even the slightest filler from their repertoire. What was left was just a single gem of an album. A Classic. Essential listening.

From: markosherrera Date: October 1, 2006 at 20:10
THIS IS PROG SYMPHONIC ROCK IN AMERICAN STYLE WITH INFLUENCE OF GROUP UK BUT WITH BETTER VOCALIST CARRY ON WAYWARD SON IS THE BEST TRACK. THE PRODUCTION IS EXCELLENT AND THE MUSICIANS ARE IN THEIR BEST MOMENT.THE VOICE IS GREAT AND THE VIOLIN TOO,ITS IN MY LIST OF 100 BEST PROG ALBUMS.

From: rocket Date: December 19, 2006 at 8:54
A work of pure genius

From: darobinson Date: April 6, 2008 at 12:25
Simply put, this is a classic!!!
