Kansas - In The Studio "Point Of Know Return" mp3 album
Point of Know Return is the fifth studio album by American rock band Kansas, released in 1977. The album was reissued in remastered format on CD in 2002. Singer/songwriter Steve Walsh left the group briefly during the recording of the album. In an interview on the weekly In the Studio with Redbeard radio show, he would admit that, at this point, he had been something of a prima donna and was attracted by the chance of a solo career.
The following year, their fifth album Point of Know Return was issued and certified four-times platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America; it spawned the Top 10 single "Dust in the Wind". After the release of a live album, the group sixth studio release Monolith was issued in 1979, which spawned two singles. Audio-Visions was released in 1980 and certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America
Point Of Know Return is a music studio album recording by KANSAS (Symphonic Prog/Progressive Rock) released in 1977 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. Even after listening the previous and more progressive Kansas albums, I believe Point of Know Return is one of their peaks, people say Dust in the Wind is a poppy ballad which is partially truth (the lyrics are too obscure and pesimist to be considered commercial), but not many bands were able to create such a beautiful melody which only started.
Point of Know Return would be Kansas' highest charting album in the US, peaking at in January 1978, and would sell four million copies in the US and be certified Quadruple Platinum by the RIAA.

Younger listeners will find it to be interesting at times but ultimately mediocre. Kansas had already gained popularity with their breakthrough album Leftoverture, paving the way for Point of Know Return, which produced such singles as Portrait (He Knew), Point of Know Return and the immortal Dust in the Wind. Kansas earned a place in classic rock history with this their 5th studio album, and created an decent prog/arena rock album. Kansas makes use of the keyboard to build an album full oscillating synth, giving their music a very turbulent feeling.
