16 Songs, 1 Hour 15 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

At their best, Styx combined a sweeping sense of melodrama with a grasp of meat-and-potatoes Midwestern rock. “Lady,” “Come Sail Away,” “Lorelei,” and the chart-topping “Babe” are lofty expressions of love built upon glimmering towers of sound. Augmented by Tommy Shaw’s bracing lead guitar, DeYoung brought an operatic urgency to showpieces like “Mr. Roboto” and “Renegade.”

Styx Greatest Hits

For anyone who grew up in the midwest (and especially a North Chicago suburb) in the 70s and 80s - or for anyone who wants to try to understand us - this album is a must have. Before the changes that broke up the original members, Styx music defined life as we knew it. Everything that happened in our lives had a Styx song associated with it. 'Our memories of yesterday will last a lifetime...' thanks for so many awesome memories. Even now I still get chills. Now my 16 year old daughter is hooked.

Wow

There's no doubt that this is the best group of Styx songs ever. From their more undiscovered classics like "Crystal Ball" and "Suite Madame Blue" to the ever popular "Mr. Roboto" or "The Grand Illusion" this album has got it all. Quality of sound is excellent and overall, I could listen to this album non stop...What a great buy

Me =) ,

Great album!

This is a really good album - probably the best Styx compilation that I know of. If you don't want the whole album, for whatever reason, my top recommendations are "Lorelei," "Too Much Time On My Hands," "Renegade," "Come Sail Away," "Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)," and "Miss America." But remember that just about all the songs on here are very good and you will not regret purchasing them.

As for Mr. Roboto, if you like it, buy it, and if you don't like it, don't buy it. It's not that difficult.

In conclusion, this is an excellent compilation of Styx's hits that is essential to any classic rock library. Just click the "Buy Album" button - you know you want to.

Happy listening =)
