October 24, 2020: ONE WEEK REMAINING in the Annual Heavy Harmonies Donation Drive!

Donations stand at covering 63% of the site's annual expenses... so close and yet so far. The annual donation drive is what keeps the site free for everyone so that I'm only pestering you once a year rather than running ads year round.

If you are not in a position to contribute (which I fully understand), please disable your ad-blocker on heavyharmonies.com. When you click through any of the eBay links, if you buy something on eBay, Heavy Harmonies will get a tiny commission.

Donation buttons are shown below. There is a thread on the HH forum that explains the perks for donating at the $20 and $50 levels.

Thank you for supporting the Heavy Harmonies community!

-Dan

Total let-down. Styx blew it with this one. The songs don't cut it and fall well below the high standard that was established 20 years ago. Avoid.

From: Edwin Date: April 16, 2002 at 20:07
Although unable to capture the spirit of the classic STYX records, I consider this a great CD. Some crap songs, but it's made up for with great moments such as the titletrack and some more. Give it a try before you decide. The ballads are brilliant as always! Don't be so hard on them Koogles!

From: JAVIER Date: October 25, 2002 at 14:42
Una autentica mierda de disco.Me recuerda al disco "seven" de night ranger o sea mas rock alternativo y modernillo.Un cero rotundo.

From: Randy Date: February 23, 2003 at 3:13
Yeah, Whatever Javier said.

From: Rycheage Date: June 11, 2003 at 2:22
If you like music, especially music with substance (and there's a lot of that here) then I can easily recommend Brave New World to you. If you are at cynical about the human species and the peculiar way we conduct ourselves, then I can recommend this to you. If you looking for an album that will change your world, that will change what you know about music, that will challenge you...then you'll have to look elsewhere.

From: Chris Date: June 22, 2003 at 12:26
It's a comfortable fit, the playing here is great, the production is great and there are some beautiful melodies. There are some rockers here, too - "Everything Is Cool," "Heavy Water," and "Number One," but for the most part this is a mature Styx, aiming for an equally aged audience...the baby-boomers really (say 35-45).

From: vandervelde Date: September 26, 2003 at 18:35
It's really nice album.....lack of outstanding tunes(maybe except While There's Still Time )but if you like DeYoung and Shaw vocals you will like this....be open and give it a try...

From: illimey Date: May 3, 2004 at 23:50
Ooops. Please ignore my previous post. I actually have this album and have had so for quite a long time. It's obviously so good I forgot all about it! Hmmmm... I think it half sucks quite badly and half rocks quite nicely if memory serves me right. Kinda a suckit'nsee album. Definitely not the Styx I've just discovered via that Extended Versions live set!

From: Nick C Date: December 8, 2004 at 7:59
Lame songs, awful sleeve...check out the back...could've been done on Bryce in less than a minute! The title track is good but that is about it. So disappointing after previous class releases!

From: Axe-Machine Date: September 8, 2005 at 9:56
If you listen to this with an open mind, you will probably like a few of the tracks...if your name's AOR Freaky, you probably wont. haha, sorry Freddy! I Will Be Your Witness, While There's Still Time and What Have They Done To You are great tracks and its a shame they got stuck on this record with some of the second rate tunes that surround it. Fortunately, Styx corrected these problems for Cyclorama. Not essential, but a good listen for the aforementioned tracks.

From: JF Date: March 20, 2006 at 20:15
Gracias a este grupo fue que comenze a interesarme a comprar discos, tendria 9 o 10 aņos. Dennis de Young es uno de mis cantantes favoritos y por supuesto el grupo. Cuando me entere que volvian con un disco completo nuevo senti una gran emocion. Pero lamentablemente excepto por algunas canciones me dejo un poco decepcionado. Pero lo que me llama mas la atencion es la calidad de las canciones de DDY, hay canciones que practicamente se alejan de un sonido rockero.

From: JF Date: March 20, 2006 at 20:23
Parece que sus trabajos en obras teatrales le a quitado el gusto por hacer canciones como antaņo, sigue teniendo esa gran voz pero no estoy tan seguro si se hubiera quedado (se que choco con muchos)seria mejor para STYX, quisiera que eso fuera cierto. CYCLORAMA es superior a este disco de lejos.Tengo el ultimo trabajo de el como solista, tiene 3 canciones nuevas pero tienen un estilo que se aleja del sonido clAsico de Styx, no son malas pero ME deja pensando sobre este punto que les comento.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 24, 2011 at 16:04
Not too consistent...some good tracks but plain and simple...kind of strange because in here you can find the great Dennis DeYoung accompanied by the very talented Tommy Shaw ...my favourite is "Brave New World"...other goodies could be the nice ones "I Will Be Your Witness" & "Goodbye Roseland" plus "Fallen Angel","Everything Is Cool" & "Heavy Water"...an ok album...that's all...85/100
