Nothing I want to hear more than Kansas jamming. Maybe punk rock was right...

Journey just might fight its way back to a tie with Styx. Don't stop believing.

Easy to say in hindsight though.

I can appreciate all of the bands listed and respect their musicianship. At one point I owned albums by all of them. People are lying to themselves if they can't appreciate the ability and songwriting craft all of these bands possess.

You're a closet AOR fan and just don't realise it. I know enough about your music tastes to know that about 50% of all your non-extreme metal
likes are often AOR inspired metal tracks that come under the guise of hair metal, power metal or just straight up trad metal. Get over it and fly the AOR flag proudly.

I have nearly all their discographies and think they sound just as good today as when I first got them bit by bit in the 1980s and 1990s.

Well 1975 to 1977 was when Kansas were at their peak as a studio band, so I imagine at that time they probably put out their best shows.

I saw all of those tours, they definitely got "bigger" but I think they were hungrier before the Leftoverture tour.

BTW, they opened the show with "Carry On Wayward Son", a whole bunch of them were bellyaching that they'd blown off their big guns to open the show. I thought it was great. I still likes the Masque tour best.

Well Masque is my favourite Kansas album anyway, but after that album their record label was on the verge of dropping them as it was a poor seller. The following album though Leftoverture saved them and made them a household name in the USA, largely thanks to "Carry On Wayward Son" which if memory serves me right was only included on the album because Kerry Livgren's wife said it should be, so without that decision that may have just ended up as a forgotten relic by the mid 1970s.

Masque is my fave too although I always skip the first two songs which suck compared to the rest of the album.

Masque is another one of those albums I bought in the 70s based on the album cover alone. Didn't have a clue who Kansas were at the time.
