5.0 out of 5 stars An Incredible & Flawless Performance! October 18, 2009
Format:DVD
One word - EPIC. This DVD is amazing. Kansas is amazing. Ehart, Williams, Walsh, Greer and Ragsdale joined forces with a 50-piece symphony for an unforgettable performance. Let's get down to business! Steve Walsh has shocked me and delivered an absolutely knock-out performance. He hits every single note and his voice sounds fresh and vibrant. This was the best I've heard him since 1990. He especially shines on "Ghosts, "Nobody's Home," "The Other Side," and "Dust..". Ehart's drumming is so powerful and it's such a pleasure to watch his technique. Greer was fantastic on bass and even more so on the backing vocals. When he harmonizes with Walsh a great blend is created. Rich Williams was really on his game, especially on "The Wall" and "Carry On". But the guy who was the most impressive and fun to watch was Ragsdale. This guy has such flair and showmanship. As good as Robby Steinhardt was, Ragsdale is a flashier and more exciting player. If this wasn't enough we get guest appearances from Kerry Livgren and Steve Morse. The latter plays such a fiery lead on "Musicatto" it's hard to believe he's human. Livgren was exceptional as well and it was cool to see him playing a pipe organ during "The Wall". Of course there are 50 other stars of the show - the symphony. Their performance added such beauty to all the epic songs and meshed so well with the band. It was truly a match made in heaven. "Nobody's Home" was especially moving. The conductor was fun to watch too. Quite simply, this DVD captures Kansas on one of their very best nights. It should also be noted that the camera work and lighting are spectacular. Without question this DVD not only blows Live At The Whiskey and Device-Voice-Drum away, it obliterates them. The setlist is comprised from 10 different albums, so there's something here for Kansas fans of any era. No fan should be without this gem. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kansas makes a Statement October 18, 2009
Format:DVD
Wow, what a DVD. I really didn't expect this. A long time coming and never too late. I witnessed a well made and produced show. I also witnessed a band that should still be taken very seriously. First, I'm a hugh Kansas fan along with other Prog Groups like Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, Spock's Beard, Neal Morse and others. I've collected all Kansas recordings, DVD's, along with these other groups. Device Voice Drum is a fantastic quality DVD in both picture and sound and wondered how they could outperform that and compete with live DVD shows from these other groups. They did, flat out. The lighting, picture quality, sound, camera angles, orchestra, guest players (Kerry Livgren, Steve Morse), song selection and group positioning, all make this a superior quality show for any Rock or Progressive Rock Fan. The Dream Theater Score DVD is exceptional, bigger than life,powerful,all encompasing and very emotional. This Kansas DVD in some ways matches this and in someways outperforms it. The show almost has a Trans-Siberian Show quality feel to it. If you've been to one of their shows you'll now what I mean. It's a production! With David Ragsdale as the front man the band has this youthful, high energy feel to it. In comes the legendary and visionary Kerry Livgren and what more could you ask for. Well you get one more thing, Steve Morse. Look and Listen to the Chemistry with Steve and David with the rest of the band. They absolutely look great together on stage. Talking about power,youthfulness and energy to go head to head with these other bands is envisioned. The original lineup could be fathers to players of some of these other groups but with David and Steve Morse up Front you have the link to really compete and raise the bar again with Prog Rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars A "Home" Run! October 20, 2009
Format:DVD
Having been a Kansas fan for 35 years, this is a true "treasure". Considering the budget involved, the audio and video quality is quite good. The band is spot on on all songs. Steve Walsh sounds the best he has in years. Billy Greer is also a very good vocalist and compliments Walsh extemely well. David Ragsdale is amazing on violin. Rich Williams provides a "thick" guitar rhythm section. Steve Morse is incredible on the few songs he plays on. Then there is Kerry Livgren. The MAIN writer of Kansas's greatest works. He is only on (3) songs. For reason's unknown to me-he DOES NOT play on "Icarus :Borne On Wings Of Steel". His piercing leads are clearly missing on this one. That being aside, it is a great complilation of a tremendous band's body of work over the past 35 years. I would highly recommend this to all Kansas fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal music and the return of "The Voice"! November 5, 2009
Format:DVD
Words cannot possibly do justice to the absolute joy I felt when first watching this DVD! As a RABID Kansas fanatic, I have everything from the band available and, while I was looking forward to this DVD already, like alot of people, I was somewhat "worried" how the voice of the great Steve Walsh would hold up after all these years (I would assess his voice at about 20% of its potential on "Live At the Whisky", about 20-40% on both "Freaks Of Nature" & "Always Never The Same", about 60% on "Somewhere to Elsewhere", and at around 60-80% on their last major DVD "Device Voice Drum" [although the strain and effort was still noticeable throughout all releases, even if is less noticeable on most of the new songs which one doesn't have the obvious option of comparing prior versions. Funny enough, Walsh sounds 100% live in concert, but I digress]). Well, I have to tell you, he sounds fantastic: 100% or darn close to it and, when one considers his age and the fact this is a LIVE document, not to mention his prior uneven recorded output as of late, I am even MORE impressed (so, yes: we can all get over our "vocal" obsessions with "Two For The Show" LOL)! As for the music and other musicians: outstanding, as always (and nice to see "Ghosts", "Rainmaker", and "Musicatto" in the set!). In fact, without the intentionally grainy film look of "Device Voice Drum" to 'hamper' things, I believe strongly that this is their greatest live document to date (honorable mention: the fantastic and out of print VHS only release "The Best of Kansas" from 1983 [Omaha, July 1982, John Elefante; A+ show]). And, with the guest appearances of the great Kerry Livgren and Steve Morse, what more could a fan ask for? Ok, it would have been nice to see John Elefante step out of the wings and perform "Play the Game Tonight" (and even have ole Robby come back for a song or two), but you can't have it all. Bottom line: get this asap!!!!
