Kansas  - The Prelude Implicit mp3 album

Kansas - the prelude implicit - new CD album. Not simply some bunch of & all men', Kansas successfully achieve here with & Prelude Implicit' what many oldies prog acts fail to do - release all-original new material that doesn't fall short of the quality and energy of their defining works and offer an album that can stand proudly on its own strong and modern merits. Devoted Kansas fans will likely be very happy with what they find here (as well as very surprised!), and hopefully this begins a whole new phase of inspiration for this rejuvenated version of the group.

Kansas is a band who are releasing their first studio album in 16 years, following the exit of an original member/lead singer/primary songwriter and the addition of three new members in the last two years. So let’s get right to the bottom line, because sure, on paper those doesn’t sound like the best circumstances to precede a new album, and many of us have had our disappointments with ‘tribute band’ versions of legendary artists. The Prelude Implicit is the work of a band fully in their stride, a band who are comfortable and confident in their musical arrangements and performances. Newcomers Ronnie Platt (lead vocals/keys), David Manion (keys), and Zak Rizvi (guitars) sound fully integrated, and their contributions allow Kansas to pull off arrangements that just haven’t been possible (or desired?) since Kerry Livgren and Steve Walsh were in their prime.

The Prelude Implicit is the fifteenth studio album by American progressive rock band Kansas, released in September 2016. It is their third studio album without founding member, lead vocalist and keyboardist Steve Walsh, who retired from the band in 2014; the other two being 1982's Vinyl Confessions and 1983's Drastic Measures.

Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). A very solid entry in the Kansas oeuvre. The pre-release singles set the stage nicely for a pretty coherently plotted album that is greater than the sum of its parts. Musically, the songwriting aspires to be Kansas-esque with soaring harmonies, crunchy guitars and Dave Ragsdale's violin.

Kansas is offering fans an early taste of their upcoming album, The Prelude Implicit, in a teaser video containing samples from the track listing. The video, which you can watch above, opens with the band members sitting around a conference table as they get ready for a listening session, then cuts away to snippets of the new songs. As previously reported, The Prelude Implicit marks the first full-length studio effort from Kansas since 2000's Somewhere to Elsewhere - and their first since the departure of singer Steve Walsh, who announced his exit in 2014.
