4 stars Back in the day I had an automatic reaction when asked: "I'm not really into Styx". What a difference two generations make! This stuff is good, REALLY GOOD. After hearing users on Progarchives go back and forth...Styx is it's not...but wait, what about Dennis deYoung's new album? This is a band that I never used to think of as prog, but The Mission IS prog! It's is also a concept album, about MARS. As for songs, where should I start...Locomotive, Radio Silence, The Greater Good, Red Storm, The Outpost...heck it's all pretty good. If you look on Amazon, some folks think it's on a par with Close to the Edge, or a Pink Floyd album, or even one of the old Kansas albums (gotta mention Kansas when the subject is American bands from the 1970s). Those are five star albums and this is a solid four-star album.
