Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bret Adams
After a three-year hiatus, Kansas re-formed in 1986, signed with MCA, and released Power. The album bears virtually no resemblance to the old Kansas style; in fact, it's more hard rock and pop than prog rock, and the tough-yet-sleek opener, "Silhouettes in Disguise," immediately announces the change to listeners.

The album bears virtually no resemblance to the old Kansas style; in fact, it's more hard rock and pop than prog rock, and the tough-yet-sleek opener, "Silhouettes in Disguise," immediately announces the change to listeners.

The instrumental "Musicatto" is the album's primary link to Kansas' prog rock past. "Taking in the View" is a gentle song featuring sweet acoustic guitar and a children's chorus. "Three Pretenders" and "Tomb 19" both rely on strong rock & roll hooks and soaring choruses. "Can't Cry Anymore" is an orchestra-based ballad. Power probably surprised longtime Kansas fans with its musical shift, but the addition of Steve Morse gave the band an interesting -- if ultimately short-lived -- new direction.
