1.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new July 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Save your money.

The DVD contains 3 songs from the Whiskey concert, and 3 from the Device Voice Drum concert. The DVD also contains remastered Dust in the Wind on and Hold on (audio only).

The CD also has Dust inthe Wind and Hold on, as if we need to hear them twice in one purchase.

If the band can't, or won't, write new material I wish they'd stop greatest hitting their fans to death.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not that bad December 11, 2006
A Kid's Review
Format:Audio CD
Forget what other compilations you have, if so you dont need this anyway. But if you dont have The Ultimate Kansas, The Best Of Kansas, Sail On, etc. I myself am a Kansas freak so I have bought every CD they have just to have it! Although this may not be the best, judging it purely on what it is it's a decent CD with a lot of good tracks. Compared to some of the BAD newer Kansas CDs over the past decade or so, this compilation is much better then some of those. For those fans who keep wishing for new material, sometimes for an older classic band, that doesnt always produce a satisfying result either. And apparantly these reissues make money for bands, because so many of them are guilty of it putting them out. So 3 1/2 stars for this issue, I just rounded it off and gave it 4.

5.0 out of 5 stars An actual review from purchasing the CD/DVD set July 28, 2006
By Joboo
Format:Audio CD
First of all, Kansas was contractually required by Interscope to release a compilation album of the three releases Kansas had with them (Whiskey, Freaks & Always). So all you Kerry-ites get off your high moral horse pointing an ignorant finger at the band for not releasing new material. If you bothered to keep up with Kansas you would know that Phil Ehart personally oversaw which songs were selected and their order. Since they contractually had to do this, atleast Phil cared enough to make sure the best songs were picked from the three Interscope releases and they flowed together. I personally feel he accomplished both with the CD.

The CD is a great representation of the best songs from the 3 Interscope CD's. To date, I think Freaks of Nature is Kansas' most overlooked and underappreciated album. In my opinion, it is their best album since Audio Confessions, the last time the original group was together and others beside Kerry wrote songs. "Peaceful & Warm" still stands out as one of the best Kansas songs ever. Blasphamy to the Kerry worshipers, but oh well. "I Can Fly", hands down, one of the best rocking songs Kansas has ever done (can't reach "Carry On" levels, but still, of their songs released after the hey days of the 70's, one of the best).

As for the DVD, the three songs from the Whiskey concert are gems. Not many fans have the VHS of the concert, so to at least have three of the songs, with extended Ragsdale solo during Mysteries to Mayhem previously only available on the VHS, is worth a look & listen (solo is included on the CD as well). Note to Phil; get the entire concert out on DVD. As the three songs selected for the DVD show, this was Kansas at a professional peak as far as musicianship.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy all the albums December 20, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I don't personally own this album, but I do have all the Kansas albums except Vinyl Confessions and Drastic Measures. I also have Steve Walsh Glossolalia as well as the two recent Proto-kaw discs.

The long and short of it is NEVER BUY BEST OF ALBUMS. In my opinion they always dissapoint, the reason for this being that you don't get to hear the band in a specific mood, but rather a jumble of ideas and songs that just don't gel. Albums are meant to reflect a certain sound of the band at that time.

I also agree with some of the reviewers, please Kerry worshipers, get over him leaving the band after Audio Visions, I am also a Kerry fan but I really like the albums Power, In The Spirit of Things and Freaks Of Nature.

If you want to purchase the best of Kansas, start with the debut, and buy all of them until Somewhere to Elsewhere, because according to me all their stuff is great, Livgren or not.

Where's the "Monolith" remaster? I'd much rather have that.

Again ? you have got to be joking
I whole-heartedly agree! The official Kansas web site in early 2006 suggested that their Live album "Two for the Show" was going to be released this year in a remastered format. Now, those plans have been put on hold (indefinately?) and I see they are now offering this Works in... Read More

Fresh is something Kansas needs but sadly doesn't have. I can't stand the comp's. I've heard all and seen all. # times live and they keep re-hashing the same over and over. Even DVD was the same. Perhaps if they knew what their fans wanted they would care too.

I like what you have to say Chuck...but there is a little old band from Canada that I would put in your conversation.Of course,I'm lucky to get a chance to see Rush once every 5 years at a large arena,whereas Kansas has made themselves much more accessible and I have been able to see them up... Read More
