Track by Track Review
OK, so this is a band theme, and it's pretty jammy, but it's also vintage Kansas surf-n-roll. It has an intro, and a pure surf pattern to drive the track. Riffs from "James Bond Theme" and others run between band member introductions. The surf 'n' psych groove is very cool! Boy is this period!
Boy oh boy, "Djengis Khan" is cool! Fuzz guitar, ringing chords, superb drums, and thumping bass. Great energy, an almost biker edge, and a catchy melody line. It has an Asian inspired intro and bridge. Wonderful!
