2 stars STYNX... A band I heard a little as a teen (Kilroy Was Here) and one of many to see connected to prog/ art rock, more or less to my surprise. And since the song 'Crystal Ball' evokes memories of my first love - featured in a cassette made by her - I gave Styx another chance with 2 euros (the first being even more awful Paradise Theater). I would have been pleased enough if the whole album had been hard rock ballads in the style of the title track, but rockers like 'Put Me On' are not my cup of tea. 'This Old Man' and 'Ballerina' with its Debussy intro are okay, but three mediocre songs is not enough. I hope there are better reasons (albums) for Styx to be here in the first place.
