Customer Reviews

Great album from the 80's

The anonymous reviewer must be unclear on when this album was originally released - 1987. Could be why is sounds like 80's music, eh? I still have this on vinyl and am glad to see it here on iTunes! If you like great 80's power ballads, listen to "Every Since The World Began". This song was written by the Survivor guys (you remember Survivor - "Eye of the Tiger", etc.), and is a great ballad with great lyrics.


I am glad to finally see this on iTunes. I've been trying to buy this long out of print cd for ages. It always seems to go for at least $30 on ebay. I just couldn't bring myself to pay that much so I've been making due with my old cassette. This is some of Tommy Shaw's best work....much better that What If and Girls With Guns. This shows that he can put out stuff that is awesome without having to sound anything like Styx. Tommy Shaw has one of the best voices in rock and this CD definitely shows why. Clean lyrics???? I don't ever recall an explicit version. Oh,well.


The 80's were so awesome.The songwriting was great,the lead solos incredible,and the vocalist actually could sing not scream.

Although he wasn't an original member, guitarist Tommy Shaw not only penned some of Styx's best-known songs but served as a musical foil for Dennis DeYoung during the band's heyday. Born on September 11, 1953, in Montgomery, Alabama, Shaw's interest in music began at a young age and he spent years playing in local bands. He was still living in Montgomery when he was offered an audition to replace departed guitarist John Curulewski for the group's tour to support 1975's Equinox. By the time Styx released...
