Styx - Greatest Hits

1 rating: 4.0
Classic Rock and Rock album by Styx

If it's your belief that one of the reasons today's rock is so bereft of personality is that all sense of show business has been drained from the music, then a look back at the career of Styx offers proof positive that it wasn't always thus.Greatest … see full wiki

Lovetoplayalotto, Mr. Roboto

You can laugh all you want at Styx, I don't care. Styx pushed the envelope when it came to experimenting with their sound and I commend them for that. They may sound silly or dated to others, but they'll be remembered for many things(and not just "Mr. Roboto"). This particular album is a good introduction to fans who might not know who they are. It's also good for the older crowd who remember these guys in their prime. I'm tucked firmly in the middle. I remember "Show Me The Way" more than any of the other songs on this album. It isn't my favorite, however. My favorite is "Blue Collar Man." More good songs on this disc include "Lorelei," "Too Much Time on My Hands," "Come Sail Away," and "Renegade."

Everything on this album is good. For you youngsters out there, give this album a little time to grow on you. It's arena rock with a theatrical turn, and it sounds great. I wasn't sure of these folks when I first heard this album, but it has slowly become one of my favorite albums. Seeing them perform live didn't hurt either. I saw them with REO Speedwagon and Survivor. I wish they would have closed the show instead of REO, because they took total control of the audience and played their best songs. They are ten times louder and heavier live. I highly suggest you see them perform if you get the chance.

In closing, buy this album to see what a band daring enough to put itself on the line sounds like. Styx has a rather unique sound that is appealing to both hard and melodic rockers.
