Album Review

Like 2004's less than stellar Cyclorama, those looking for this to be the big Styx record that will catapult them back into the mainstream will be sorely disappointed in the contents of this record. It's not a CD of new material, rather, it's a 14-song collection of covers from some of the band's influences and all-time rock favorites. Starting with a live recording of the Beatles' "I Am the Walrus," the band works its way through the great rock & roll songbook with safe, relative ease. Also included are the Who's "I Can See for Miles," the Lovin' Spoonful's "Summer in the City," Blind Faith's "Can't Find My Way Home," Jimi Hendrix's "Manic Depression," Jethro Tull's "Locomotive Breath," and Free's "Wishing Well." All fine choices, and in combination with Styx's usual clean production and relaxed atmosphere around the usually serious album format makes Big Bang Theory a record that die-hard fans will enjoy and casual fans might regard as a passing novelty stopgap in between records.

the Guts and theGlory

I saw them last Saturday at a casin"A"in Jersey and I expected a bunch of old rockers you'd want them to hang up their shtick. But God*#nm them boys rocked the hell outa the place! They did I am the Walrus and yeah any decent lounge band could drege up old memories with such a tune. But when they did One Way Out, you heard the crowd join in as if it was actually their own song. I must admit I Don't Need No Doctor blew my fuse. these guys being sort of Icons by the nature and current age of their own hits picked songs that they love. They didn't care if you wanted to revisit them, they only wanted to treat your ears to them in a live performance and if you didn't get to hear them originaly live then you were lucky to experience them live in 2005 thank to Styx!

No Styx Fan Should Own This Album

This album, like Cyclorama, was a disaster! Styx can not do anything good without Dennis DeYoung. Anyone who owns this album should be ashamed of themselves. Maybe Gowan can play "Fooling Yourself" backwards on the keyboards but can he play the rockin' keyboard solo that Dennis played on the Edge of the Century track "Homewrecker?" I don't think so! The Beatles version of "I Am The Walrus was better than the Styx version and Blue Collar Man (Pieces of Eight Version) was way better than Blue Collar Man @ 2120. Tommy and J.Y., get Dennis back into the group!

Shouldn't have done it

Tonight I heard a couple of tracks played on the local radio station and came here to find out who did them. The singer did not have the voice for these songs and now I find out it is Styx. The voice of this band, whoever it is, is not the proper voice for these songs. These classic songs were done an injustice to be recorded and sold by this band. Someone has to pull the plug on this embarassing recording. Shame on the local station for playing them on the airwaves.


Formed: 1970 in Chicago, IL

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Although they began as an artsy prog rock band, Styx would eventually transform into the virtual arena rock prototype by the late '70s and early '80s, due to a fondness for bombastic rockers and soaring power ballads. The seeds for the band were planted in another Chicago band during the late '60s, the Tradewinds, which featured brothers Chuck and John Panozzo (who played bass and drums, respectively), as well as acquaintance Dennis DeYoung (vocals, keyboards). By the dawn of the '70s, the group...
