"All I Wanted" is a wonderful music! Top 10 hit!!

From: Kim Date: June 30, 2002 at 9:52
This is a great release. Morse rules. If anyone could please make some reviews on some of the other Kansas releases.????

From: koogles Date: June 30, 2002 at 17:08
Agreed with Kim and Billy Boy. Albums like this come along once in a career. Kansas finally perfected the AOR formula with this one. "All I Wanted" was my favourite song of 1986. If you love this as much as I do, check out Seventh Key- s/t (2001, Frontiers).

From: peter Date: April 6, 2003 at 22:23
"can't cry anymore", top ten of all time

From: ALEJANDRO Date: June 23, 2003 at 7:04
AOR en estado puro.Desde ese himno de los 80 que es ALL I WANTED, KANSAS varìa en parte de estilo en un disco màs que interesante. Steve Morse se luce en SILHOUETTES.,MUSICATTO tiene rezabios del viejo Kansas,y Walsh deslumbra en CAN`T CRY ANYMORE.Muy bien producido,POWER no deja de ser un paso adelante en la carrera de la banda.Con la excepcion de los flojos SECRET..y WE`RE NOT..la placa destila buen gusto y no desentona,pero lejos de la calidad de antaño. 7/10 carro_martin2000@yahoo.com.ar

Along with Audio Visions, probably my fave Kansas album. Very modern sounding, with some great rockers, "Silhouettes In Disguise", "We're Not Alone Anymore", "Tomb 19", and let's not forget "All I Wanted", pretty much the epitome of the AOR ballad. Steve Walsh is such a great and unique vocalist, it kills me that he doesn't get more accolades from other singers.

From: TIM (2) Date: June 9, 2004 at 4:12
I must admit I've never thought Walsh was one of the worlds greatest vocalists, but I loved the band. Great album, with the pop-sounding "Tomb 19" being my fave.

From: bernardito Date: June 19, 2004 at 20:40
ALGUN DIA QUISIERA SABER LA OPINION DE 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 , SE QUE SABE BASTANTE DE AOR !!!, YO POR MI PARTE LE PONGO 85/100 DE RATING!, FOR THE ANGLO PARLANTS: THIS IS A MASTERPIECE AOR ALBUM, SURE, FOR THE PASSIONATE BALLADS, THAT I FOUND HERE, A MUST HAVE, CHEAP ALBUM RATING 85-90/100, CHEERS FROM MEXICO!!! AOR RULES!!!

From: Big Papa K Date: June 27, 2004 at 0:27
Agree fully with Koogles here, Kansas finally perfected their aor formula and come up with their best album. The first three tracks are the best and among the bands best songs of their career. 8/10

From: BWH"Indonesia" Date: September 4, 2004 at 2:23
Released in the golden year of AOR, this albums, along with many other 1986 keyboard-driven releases, is one of my best favourites. Track 2,3,8,9 and 10 really fitted the scene. The songs are not only sweet and radio friendly, but the chords are excellent. Track 1 maybe their heaviest tune so far. Steve Morse is also amazing.

From: Lovedrive Date: June 25, 2005 at 9:14
Lo he escuchado x encima y tiene muy buena pinta. Steve Walsh, otro grandísmo cantante.

From: Lovedrive Date: August 1, 2005 at 13:32
GRANDIOSO. Cuanto mas lo escucho, mas lo disfruto. Vaya pedazo de cantante este Steve Walsh.. me encanta.

From: rene Date: December 13, 2005 at 17:28
TOMB 19 is just a great track of pure HARD AOR like SURVIVOR did in those times too. I agree that the singer STEVE WALSH is great on this album.

Buen AOR comercial con sus toques clásicos de prog. Steve Walsh no es de mis cantantes preferidos por cierto. Las 3 primeras y las 3 que culminan el disco son las mejores. "All I Wanted" es la mejor del disco sin duda alguna. No un clásico en mi opinión pero Vale la pena tenerlo. 8/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: May 18, 2007 at 22:47
Un disco que significa ese "crossover" de Kansas entre lo aor y lo prog."All I Wanted"(fabulosa semi-balada y la mejor del disco,sin duda alguna!)y "Tomb 19" son las mas relevantes a mi opinion personal(aunque la cancion que le da el titulo al disco "Power" tambien tiene lo suyo).En general,si te gusta ese Kansas dulzon pero con clase entonces hazte de este disco.7/10

From: Figge Date: July 27, 2007 at 21:28
Somewhat of a hit and miss affair, if you ask me. Some fantastic AOR/Melodic Rock pieces but also some songs I can't seem to warm to(Taking In The View, Secret Service and the instrumental Musicatto). Overall a great band and Steve Walsh sounds great!

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 7, 2015 at 13:02
Listening again to this pleasant release..."All I Wanted" is by far the best cut and one of the most sensitive songs of the band...some other fine moments(that basically is the entire album) are tracks 1(good rocking one),2,4,8,9 & 10(nice)...87/100 (my new rate)
