|This is one of the best records by one of the best bands in the world. If you don't like this you don't like music.

|7/7/77 I was 15. Not yet into Styx but I remember that on that date I was near the edge of the local woods when I "met" a magpie.It was so tame it sat on my hand,head and shoulder. After about 20 mins of this I had to go home, some kids ended up playing with it.The next night I went back with the hope of seeing it again. I met the same kids who told me that the bird had flown into the road and been splatted. Sure enough the remains were on the road! Great album though!Just the release date..sob!

|La primera vez que tuve este disco fue gracias a mi primo. Lo estaba buscando con mucha ansiedad y cuando fui de visita a su casa (no era muy seguido), lo vi y se lo pedi prestado pero al final me lo regalo. Un clasico sin lugar a dudas. Que tal sentimiento en come sail away (todo un himno). Es un grupo que nadie podra negar que a dejado un gran legado y a influenciado a muchos grupos de aor.

|Castle Walls is so epic! Love the middle instrumental part of the song. Clearly their best work, the songs are outstanding! The apex of Styx!!
