    I've heard the whole album on YT. I'd say I liked about half the album. It's very Kansasy and proggy.

    I hope this isnít something Robbie abandoned and never wanted released because he didnít care for the project. And now somebody decided to release it for financial reasons only. I loved Robbies contribution to Kansas and his voice was much underrated. RIP Robbie.

    I'm sorry, but why are we assuming the worst possible scenario? is there something causing you to think in this manner?

    Check out the article link I shared in comment # 17 of this post. Really nice article that details how this album came to be.

    I listened on You Tube, wanted to like it but didn't that much I'm afraid. More plays required I expect bit it didn't encourage me to do so.

    I doubt I'll listen to it again but there are a couple of proggy sections that were very good. Covering Dust..... was pointless. Overall it's OK.

    I wasnít assuming the worst scenario I was just hoping that this wasnít some way of profiting off of Robbie after heís past. Iím very interested in this and Iím hoping for something worthwhile of Robbies legacy.

    I hope you don't think I was criticizing you.
    I just wondered why you were worried about Robby's release.
    I guess there have been enough folks over the years who have been less than stellar when releasing musician's unreleased material after they've passed on, but I personally haven't had any issues.

    Yep, this sounds like a good one!
    btw, maybe Dan remembers, but I thought I read when this info first came out, that Robby's wife was involved or at least signed off on it.
    And I hope his family does profit off of it, and I'm going to make my contribution by picking it up.

    From everything I have read, I really don't think this is the case. When Robbie died it was reported that the album had already been completed and was right on the cusp of being released. He was also in the process of planning a tour which appeared to be already in the works.

    This would be a great album except for that "Dust In The Wind" remake. Unnecessary and ruins all the momentum that had been building in the album's first act.

    That said, I truly enjoy this album. And those last fleeting moments of Robby's violin as the record comes to a close: eye watering stuff.

    What's up with the distribution on this album? Never saw it at the usual prog dealers and Amazon says it's unavailable.

    ^^ There may be unresolved legal ambiguities involved with distributing the album posthumously.

    I can’t answer the Amazon part, but it was not made available to ‘the usual Prog dealers’, as apparently the plan was to have all retail sales/as many as possible retail sales via Robby’s direct mail site
