Well my fellow Wheatheads, the first new album in 15 years has been released. I hope you all have been able to but it or check it out by now. If not, it's on Spotify. What are your thoughts on it?

"With This Heart" is an amazing piece. Kansas is my go-to band whenever I am feeling down or scared, and this song has already helped me a lot through some recent ordeals. "Visibility Zero" is also extremely timely. Ronnie's vocals really soar in this one. I just wish the radio stations had the guts to play it. "The Voyage of Eight Eighteen" is old school Kansas, like something off of their first album or Song for America. And I love the sound of "Crowded Isolation." The bonus tracks are a cool surprise too, I never thought a rock rendition of "Home on the Range" could sound so good. Ronnie's voice is a smile in audible form.

What tracks stand out to you?

Hey, I'm really flattered you want to include my piece Icarusbut it wasn't inspired by Kansas' song it was inspired by Bastille's so I would feel pretty bad if you included it :P But thank you for liking my work :)

Thank you soo much "Wheat-heads" for inviting and having my Logo featured :bow:.
I have also submitted Logo "II".
HUGE Kansas fan of every era and I hope one day the band could use one of the Logos, if we are ever graced with 1 more studio album.

Anyone know what is going on with Kerry Livgren's "Lazarus" concept album?

Thanks again! :wave:

Welcome aboard! I hadn't heard anything about a new project from Kerry... what do you know about it so far?

There used to be a "Clip" of the piece on YOUtube, I guess the person took it down, a piece called "Cantata" (A musical composition, often using a sacred text, comprising recitatives, arias, and choruses).
You can look here at all the news, it seems like its a labor of love:

3/25/06: "We get many inquiries about Kerry's Cantata. Kerry Livgren essentially finished composing his Cantata in 2001, an effort spanning over twenty years. (The word "finished" is carefully chosen, knowing the composer's penchant for re-working compositions) Unfortunately it keeps getting put on the "back burner" as other album projects materialize.

The Cantata is quite unlike anything he has composed before, yet has musical characteristics that will be recognizable as his work. "The closest thing I can compare it to, if I must make a comparison, is a modern musical production like "Les Miserables".

The Cantata's full title is "Cantata: The Resurrection of Lazarus", and is based on the Biblical account in the Gospel of John. The production work continues - the orchestration, casting, recording, etc., with , as Kerry says, "a cast of thousands". We're not yet ready to announce a date... "
