by C.W. Ross
This sophomore release from the band is the follow up to their 2004 CD, "Before Became After."
The band's members are:
Kerry Livgren- Guitar, Songwriter, Producer
John Bolton- Saxophone
Brad Schultz- Drums
Craig Kew- Bass
Dan Wright- Keyboards
The band describes their music as, 'Jammy, Progressive Rock' with a Broadway cinematic feel.
"The music is progressive but progressive I think in a new way. There are elements of R&B, which is going back to our very early roots before we were called Kansas and this is melded into a progressive thing and I can't think of anyone doing that." explains Kerry Livgren.
The CD starts off with the 9+minutes long rich sounding song entitled, "Never More."
From there the CD fuses a musical brew of guitars,drums, saxophone and keyboards into a full and wonderful sound.
Whether you're a fan of Kerry from his early Kansas days or new to this new progressive rock with a twist sound either way you'll be
delighted with the music found on this CD.
