Freaks of Nature

Genre: Rock; Producer (group): Intersound; Status: In Season

Nothing lazy about Kansas’ comeback album Freaks of Nature. The techno synths and hoedown fiddles of ”Need” and the AOR schmaltz and African drums on ”I Can Fly” are fairly innovative syntheses. But the hard-to-follow tempo changes drown beneath the bloat. These guys still don’t realize how silly they can seem: ”Under the Knife” is actually an opera about being operated on. B-
