Album Review

Mark Allender [allmusic.com]

Probably the most prog of Kansas' albums, this one spotlights long, orchestrated songs and unusual time signatures. There is an extended nine/eight instrumental break in the middle of the title track. ''Lamplight Symphony'' offers long, orchestrated passages. When the energy is there, it is intense energy, such as ''Down the Road'' and ''The Devil Game.'' The longer songs unfortunately can lose a passive listener. But all in all, this is a good (if not adolescent) recording for a group of this genre.
