3 stars Ok, this wasn't Styx's finest record, "Kilroy was here" was a far cry besides "Crystal Ball" and "Equinox", but REMEMBER the music had changed by 1983, a hard time for prog music, just as much as 1992 when heavy metal was wiped away by the so-called alternative rock, so don't pretend to have another "Grand Illusion" or something...

We have some good moments here: Heavy Metal Poisoning (a great song), Cold War, Just get through this Night and Double Life are songs that stand out among most of the band's 80s and 90s output. IMHO it is a stronger record than "Paradise Theater" and "Cornerstone" (those albums have surprisingly HIGHER ratings than this one). So you guys who slam at this album so badly (specially because of the song Mr. Roboto) should pay more attention to the remaining eight tracks of this record.

Prosciutto | 3/5 |
