YMMV / Kansas

  • Acclaimed Flop: 1988's In The Spirit of Things was the follow up to their 1986 "comeback" album Power, but it was met with poor commercial reception.note  This is mainly due to the fact that their record label at the time (MCA Records) dropped support for many of the classic rock acts on the label for the latest pop stars at the time like Tiffany. However, many fans and the band themselves consider it to be one of their strongest post-70's work.
  • Epic Riff: Spanning several different instruments. For starters: "Dust in the Wind" for acoustic guitar, "Carry On Wayward Son" for electric guitar (plus the epic Lyrical Cold Open as a bonus), "Point of Know Return" for violin, "Miracles out of Nowhere" for keyboards, and "Lonely Street" for bass guitar.
  • Signature Song: Initially "Dust in the Wind," but it's since been displaced by "Carry On Wayward Son".
  • Song Association: As stated on the main page, "Carry On Wayward Son" is commonly associated with Supernatural.
