~  KANSAS  ~ 


U S A  -  rock progressif  -  **** 


 Un méga groupe de heavy progressif US, dont la particularité réside
dans le contraste entre les riffs de guitare électrique, tendance hard rock
et les passages très doux au violon et à la guitare sèche.
Le mélange des styles "boogie-rock" et des arrangements complexes
rapproche donc  
Kansas  du courant du rock progressif.
Une référence !!!
