Gowan's not with Styx anymore? When did that happen?

My most played disc this year (after Urban Tale). A huge improvement on 'Brave New World' and definately their best releases since the mighty 'Paradise Theater'. End of Story. Buy Buy Buy

What a disappointment this is. You all know that besides Legs Diamond, Styx is my all time fave band !!!!! God, they gave us such brilliant music. But this ? Gone is the classic pomp sound, no great keyboards etc. etc. it's clear : Dennis De Young was Styx !!! He is sadly missed ! This is very average stuff, not more than a 6 on a scale of 10. Sad but true. Am I honest or not ? It hurts me to say that Styx has released such an average record !

Have to totally disagree with you Freddy, live with the cd a little longer and tracks like the brilliant 'These Are The Days' 'Kiss Your Ass Goodbye' and 'Captain America' will grow on you i promise. As you well know, The pomp sound of Styx was gone a long time ago, so what were you expecting??? their past releases are still there for us all to enjoy. bands move on ,this is the 21st century after all. This is a quality melodic rock release for this century not the last.

From: Mave Date: May 13, 2003 at 9:09
yep, absolutely the best buy I´ve made in the last months! And it keeps getting better every time! It´s a "must have"!

From: freddy de keyze Date: May 28, 2003 at 18:47
Sorry, Jez and Mave. I still find this very average. O.K., we live in 2003, does this mean that a band has to change their style totally ? I have respect for bands that keep their own, unique style. Styx was such a brilliant, unique band with a typical sound. Now they're one of the many melodic acts. Nothing special anymore. That hurts me. I listen once again to 'Equinox', 'The Grand Illusion' and 'Pieces Of Eight' ! That was Styx, this is only surrogate ! A pity !

From: ace Date: June 3, 2003 at 1:58
in my opinion this is simply styx minus dennis deyoung, and that's the proper way to view this effort. to me this is a great return to 70's style styx, mixed with a bit of today's sound. all in all a excelant cd. BY THE WAY WHERE IS IRON MAIDEN.

From: Rycheage Date: July 28, 2003 at 19:57
This is a different band than they once were. Since the early 90's, the line up has changed for each record. This line up really works and together the band have recorded a stellar album that for me is easily the best since the band's heyday. It's certainly better than "Brave New World" and even "Edge Of The Century". If you can ignore the controversy over the line-up debate you will find that this is simply a great classic-rock record with all the pomp and ceremony a Styx album should have.

From: Phil Date: October 6, 2003 at 22:59
Styx just had another casualty -- Glenn Burtnik. Obviously, it's hard for the rest of the band to get along with a self-medicated egomaniac like Tommy Shaw. He learned a little too much from Ted Nugent (in his Damn Yankee days) about how to be a first class jerk.

From: Ghostrider Date: November 2, 2003 at 0:44
Despite the fact they keep releasing live albums year after year that are not needed whatsoever these guys also released aanother best of collection recently and cut all the Deyoung tracks that were rockers of the cd like erasing him from their past yeah right but this cd is Shaw/Young wanting to be a pop-punk band and this isnt melodic though they needed to take some new chances but this is just shit they have to give it up

From: Date: January 16, 2004 at 23:57
Have not heared all songs on this but I have discovered a new favorite : Lawrence Gowan ! And " Killing the Thing that you love " is SUPER BRILLIANT ORE IN SWEDISH Helt suverän ! Were Can you buy his CD:s if you are from sweden ( He is defenetly not known here ) .

From: TIM (2) Date: May 28, 2004 at 9:35
This is really good. Only picked it up recently but is much better than I expected. Sounds awfully dated, and there are some filler tracks, but "Together" is excellent, and "Killing the Thing that you Love" is not much different to their older stuff. I can't believe how different each album sounds to the previous one...

From: Tony Date: February 12, 2005 at 13:50
I picked up this cd recently and I'm glad I did. Luckily I wasn't a HUGE Styx fan in their heyday so I listened to this with open ears. "Waiting..." and "Together" are just brilliant AOR songs that you don't really hear anymore. Didn't take this out of my car cd player for a week and it's nice to hear a band that can still write great melodic rock tunes like this. Glen Burtnik has a amazing voice and all the songs are solid, glad I checked it out.

From: swriter Date: August 27, 2005 at 15:48
This is really a strong disk, the strongest to me since Paradise, great songs on here, Do Things, Waiting, These, Tohether, Captain, Killing and One are all great tunes, very strong, wished they would of done a new material album instead of the new covers album.

From: Axe-Machine Date: September 8, 2005 at 9:51
A little old mixed with a little new...and personally i think that it's a good disc, which I agree wasnt my initial reaction, but having listened properly now I have changed my view. One With Everything is a true Styx classic track. Keep doin things your way Tommy! I like it!

From: Remastered Reason Date: March 19, 2006 at 23:30
This is Styx? Dennis DeYoung...please return to Styx. Your fans beg & the band is surely in need of your abilities.

From: strangeways1 Date: May 26, 2006 at 16:56
This is not AOR. Very disappointing. 4/10

From: underworld king Date: September 2, 2014 at 9:10
This cd isn't that bad. Some great tracks here if you give it a proper listen. This cd will always be special for me as the songs resonate strongly with me based on where I was and what I was doing back in 03.

From: underworld king Date: September 2, 2014 at 9:12
Especially "These Are The Times".
