3 stars Styx is one of those bands that I've always listen with pleasure, no matter what others said I realy like this band aand what they release over the years.Ok is not one of my fav bands but from time to time is a good listen , specialy their '70 stuff. I've already review two albums in the past Equinox (who I founded to be their best so far) and Paradise theatre, so I said is time for more Styx reviews . This time i'm on Man of miracles from 1974, the first album where Styx begun to move to a bigger fan base and they will be more and more wide known by larger public. This album sounds to me almost like an etirely har rock album with some heavy prog elements, specialy the last tracks are the most progressive without doubt. The music is not realy bad, some good moments on Man Of Miracles, sounds towards Uriah heep same time, with blstering keybords over some solid guitar section. The rest of the album is ok, nothing groundbreaking and very progressive but ok in places. The covert art is excellent. So a pleasent album but far from what will be after this one, musicaly speaking is weaker in any way then next releases, still a 3 star album to me.
