Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 11% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a Bayesian average rating of 75.5/100, a mean average of 75.0/100, and a trimmed mean (excluding outliers) of 75.7/100. The standard deviation for this album is 15.8.

I rate Kansas above the "usual suspects" of a top 10 prog. bands list i.e British bands like Floyd, Genesis, Jethro, Yes...I prefer their first album to most of the others, but this one would be in my second place alongside some of their other '70s albums. So most of this album is composed by Kerry Livgren, I have to admit that overall I like his songs better than Steve Walsh's, though Steve wrote and contributed to some great ones too. I think the songs on Leftoverture range from good to great. Besides being prog. rock, it's also part heavy metal and even a little bit synth-pop("Questions of My Childhood"). My favourite is "Miracles Out of Nowhere", great synthesizer opening and heavy metal outro.

This classic album brought Kansas’ music to the masses. While not my personal favorite of their works, it is nonetheless sublime. Add on top of the music, the album artwork is fantastic. Kansas’ music, like most prof, is complicated and difficult to “find a beat” with changing time
signatures, but between Steve Walsh’s amazing lead vocals supported by Robbie Steinhart’s harmonies (and sometime leads as well as of course his violin), and Kerry Livgren’s amazing song writing (READ the lyrics), you just cant beat this band.

My #1 Album of 1976. Epic songs, outstanding musicianship, excellent variety--it has just about everything going for it. Not a weak song in the bunch--no need ever to skip a single track.

Kansas' best album. Carry On is great, though I got burnt on it after hearing it a million times. The best song is What's on my Mind. This album really put them on the map, even if Point of Know Return was more successful.

Kansas’s fourth album is one of the best and most accessible prog rock albums of all time. My favorites are “Cheyenne Anthem” and “Magnum Opus,” but this is a record that can be listened to straight through, with very few weak moments.
