3 stars This is a transition album by the american band Styx, which in the 70's sailed between Rock and Prog. They began as a pure Rock band with little prog airs, and this is perhaps the last good Rock album they released. The Chicago sound was being abandoned and the band was about to become unrooted, maybe a necessary step to embrace Prog in the ensuing years in which they would release a few glorious Prog-Rock albums beginning with EQUINOX in 1975. Here you'll find a few nice rockers, As Bad As This, Jonas Psalter, and the title track. Great musicianship, good guitar riffs and splendid hammonds. To end with a curious version of Haendel's Hallelujah.
