One of my first albums that I ever got into my collection was Kansas "Leftoverture". I think my folks got it for when I was 11 or 12 years old. Yeah, back in the day. Ever since I first heard this record, I fell in love with it. Today, it still remains one of my favorites.
This breakthrough album, released in 1976, displays an impressive set of progressive rock with catchy hooks. Fueled by a multiple amounts of instrumental passages, this album won't let you down. The lyrics are uplifting and spiritual, leaving me with a smile on face.
The album starts off with the ever popular "Carry On Wayward Son" That tune I always find myself singing along to. The next song, "The Wall", is a personal favorite of mine. A song that is extremely close to my heart. "What's On my Mind" is a rocker! "Miracles Out of Nowhere" is a killer multi-tempo progressive piece. Questions of my Childhood is an excellent bouncy and rollicking piece. Cheyenne Anthem is a beautiful song about the Native Americans. You'll get carried away by instrumentation on the epic Magmun Opus.
Other words this whole album is good, worthy of any album collection.
