Music On Vinyl has been slowly reissuing the Kansas 70''s material for the better part of the past 5 years. While the reissues have not been in chronological order, Masque represents the 5th album from this iconic band to receive the vinyl remaster treatment. Once again, the quality is fantastic. The single LP jacket is true to the original LP presentation, but the red vinyl and added weight keeps this release in the collectible/audiophile category. Those who have enjoyed this reissue series should find no problem with this version as well - once again fantastic sound with minimal surface noise. I have not A/B compared this to the Friday Music version (with the double gatefold).

Kansas moved in a slightly more commercial direction with Masque, but they did so without sacrificing everything they had built up to this point in time. The epic prog passages were still present but the emphasis on melody was ever more apparent and the riffs were more widely appealing, falling a bit more in line with mainstream rock at this time. Still, this album contains some of the band’s most beloved tracks, like “Icarus,” the popular “Child of Innocence” and the two part epic “Mysteries and Mayhem/The Pinnacle,” which was perhaps Kerry’s greatest accomplishment musically up to this point in time. “All the World” may not have been one of the band’s greatest hits, but it was and remains a beautiful song with a very powerful message. Steve Walsh clearly showed his different writing style on this album with the more commercial “It’s You” and “It Takes a Woman’s Love." For those that felt Kansas was too intense, too progressive with Song for America, this album was the proof that these guys were going to be huge and that they could transcend both genre and generation.

It is true that this album has some not so great filler tunes, mostly the ones written by Steve Walsh. Really they were just attempting to be somewhat commercial, due to record company pressure. The rest of the tunes are epic pieces of prog rock that can rival Yes and King Crimson. "Icarus", "Mysteries and Mayhem", "Child of Innocence" and "The Pinnacle" are among the best Kansas tunes ever written. "All the World" also is a good song, some people might find it sappy, but listen to the words, this is what the world really needs right now.

The first four Kansas albums are the best in my opinion. After "Leftoverture" I kind of lost interest in the band, but I still listen to "Song for America" and "Masque". Kansas was in a league of their own, probably the best American prog rock band ever.

This transitional 1975 album was released virtually on the heels of their prog rock opus Song for America (also 1975). In contrast with Song for America, Masque featured a greater proportion of shorter pieces, and at least a few tracks that were apparently targeted towards a less prog-oriented audience - the "boogie" and hard rock influences are still present on this album. On the flip side of the coin however, is the brilliant Kerry Livgren penned prog rock track The Pinnacle; a masterwork that I would place alongside Apercu (Kansas, 1974); Song for America, Lamplight Symphony, and Incomudro-Hymn to the Atman (all from Song for America, 1975). Overall, Masque is a transitional work that finds the band sandwiched between the earlier prog epics and the mature sound they presented on Leftoverture (1976).

The lineup on this album included multi-instrumentalist Kerry Livgren (lead and rhythm electric guitar; acoustic guitar; piano; clavinet; mini-moog synthesizer and ARP synthesizers); Phil Ehart (drums; "moog" drum; and percussion); Robby Steinhardt (violin and vocals); Steve Walsh (Hammond organ; clavinet; mini moog synthesizer; congas; and vocals); Rich Williams (lead and rhythm electric guitar) and Dave Hope (electric bass). These guys are all fantastic musicians and the ensemble work is of a very high quality. My understanding is that Phil Ehart was very much influenced by English progressive rock (along with Kerry) and really wanted to be part of that scene. I guess it is no surprise then that he turned up on former Genesis guitarist Steve Hackett''s solo album Please Don''t Touch (1978).

The eight tunes on this album range in length from 3''09" to 9''34" and consist of a mixture of rock/boogie pieces with tiny bits of prog (It''s You; Child of Innocence; It takes a Woman''s Love; and Two Cents Worth) and several tracks that would be of great interest to most prog fans (Icarus; Mysteries and Mayhem>The Pinnacle). All the World is one track that is right in the middle and is somewhat indicative of future trends. This is a seven minute piece that nicely blends the hard rock/pop and the proggier tendencies of the band - of course, the most seamless blending of rock/boogie and prog would be brought to perfection on Leftoverture (1976). As a hardcore prog fan, my favorite tracks include Icarus; All the World; and the Mysteries and Mayhem>The Pinnacle suite, which is simply a fantastic composition and my favorite track on Masque. All of the hallmarks of progressive rock are (especially) in place on The Pinnacle: dense ensemble work; fantastic melodies; sophisticated counterpoint etc. This is another one of my favorite Kerry Livgren/Kansas compositions.

This remastered album by Epic/Legacy is very, very good and features excellent sound quality, loads of liner notes and pictures of the band. The bonus tracks are just OK and simply consist of demos and rehearsal recordings.

All in all, this album is highly recommended to those folks that are interested in the heavier side of 1970''s progressive rock. Although I might be a little biased, I feel that Kansas was one of the more significant and original American groups that ventured into progressive rock. While Masque might not be the best Kansas album to start with, it is recommended along with the eponymous debut - Kansas (1974); Song for America, Leftoverture; and Point of Know Return (1977). Of these albums, Song for America is very proggy and a personal favorite. Other American bands that practiced interesting strains of prog include Happy the Man - their Crafty Hands album is pretty good.

KANSAS - Masque (1975) (****½) 10 tracks - (48:34)

Kansas''s third album, hot on the heels of Song For America, also released in 1975, was almost a "make it or brake it" album. The band''s music had sold reasonably well, but KANSAS had failed to produce a hit single. Don Kirshner was definitely putting some pressure on the band. That''s the reason this album opens up with two very "pop" oriented short singles, It Takes A Woman''s Love (to make a man) and Two Cent''s Worth. The first one is sprinkled with pop lyrics, catchy harmonies, even some 70''s era saxophone playing! Lucky for us, the short sighted plan didn''t result in a hit single, and KANSAS was able to keep moving straight ahead with what it did best, creating and playing some of the most "progressive" American rock music ever. Don Kirshner would just have to keep waiting for KANSAS''s big success, which was just on the horizon. If Kirshner''s attempt to make "hit makers" out of KANSAS had been successful, I''m afraid the band would not have survived, as we know them today.

OK, back to the album...where was I? Oh yeah, then we jump right into classic KANSAS with Icarus (born on wings of steel) a perennial fan favorite based on the adventures of a World War II Bomber squadron. All The World is a typical classically arranged song with many mood and time changes, while Child Of Innocence is a much more straight-ahead hard rock song, one of my favorites. It becomes obvious very quickly that Steve Walsh''s contributions to this album lean much more to the lighter side of things while Kerry Livgren''s tend (again) to the more epic-length, classical works. Such as The Pinnacle, the album''s 9 minute 34 second stunning opus.

This 2001 EPIC/Legacy remaster contains two bonus tracks, a rehearsal recording of Child Of Innocence and the original Demo of It''s You (previously unreleased). These two bonus tracks contribute nothing to the over-all package. As other reviewers have noted, the rehearsal recording of Child Of Innocence sounds like it was secretly recorded by a fan with a hand-held cassette recorder inside their pocket! It''s so bad I''m astonished it was even included. As far as the Demo version of It''s You compared to the original, the two are so similar; it''s hard to tell them apart. The good part is you get a 10-page booklet with expanded liner notes and all song lyrics.

Best Track: The Pinnacle

I''ve heard some people say this is one of Kansas''s weaker albums but I think this is one of their best, honestly. The remastering job is really good, actually. As I mentioned in my review of Kansas (self-titled), I was suspicious of buying these remasters because of the horrible remastering job done on Leftoverture, but this album, like Kansas, has been well remastered, keeping very close to the original mix and sound while adding a lot of clarity without compressing the heck out of the CD to make it "seem" louder (see: loudness war).

This album does have some weak tracks, like "It Takes A Woman''s Love", "Two Cents Worth", "All The World", and "It''s You", but the rest are typically Kansas...well constructed and with an absolutely stunning finale, "The Pinnacle". I highly recommend this CD to anyone who enjoyed Kansas or Song for America and wants more.

I remember hearing songs from Kansas; "Masque" on the radio, K-SHE 95 in St. Louis. I liked a lot of them, but only got them on the live album, "Two for the Show" when it was released (my first Kansas album).

I decided the other day that I would complete my Kansas collection (I just lacked the first 3), and purchased all of them at once. Masque blew me away...I couldn''t believe I had missed it the first time. So much good music on one CD. As one of the other reviewers mentioned, the ''bonus material'' wasn''t much of a bonus, but if you want to get some of the best Kansas music that was ever released, this is one of them.

For those of you who are a bit wary and don''t know older Kansas material, this is a good CD, and certainly part of the reason that Kansas became so popular. It''s a real shame that so many of the so-called ''classic rock'' stations have completely ignored or forgot some of the best selections that made classic rock what it is.

I have a ton of vinyl from my young adult life and when re-buying every thing on CD this one slipped through the cracks. I do not know why i skipped this one. It''s almost like rediscovering it with fresh ears. This is such a GREAT recording. "The Pinnacle" is my fav song from this. All of the songs are fantastic. You can really hear the beginnings of the style that defined them for the years to come. Leftoverture is also a great recording and most folks consider it the best of the best of Kansas. If you liked Leftoverture you will love Masque. My only criticism is in the recording quality. It seems a bit flat. My vinyl sounds better than the CD. Anyone else notice this?

At this time they were still working with the original crew and it shows. I remember seeing them for the first time and it was during the time when they were promoting the album that came after this "SONG FOR AMERICA" I was amazed at the guitar and violin playing and how they reminded me of another band of a slightly earlier time called "THE FLOCK".
