3 stars Aahh, what a paradox that is Styx. So much classic stuff from different minds and different moods. But in the progressive land, Styx has probably the highest rate on the 'shame-o-meter'. I for instance, would be shy to put my 'rock on' attitude on a cd by Styx. The thin border between Joe Dirt and Barry Manilow amazes me.

Joe Dirt style: stuff like Blue Collar Man, Suite Madame Blue, Miss America really, really rocks old school. Tommy Shaw et James Young had obviously the knack to make your feet tap with rythm.

Barry Manilow stuff: a very sappy (and so ever in love) Dennis deYoung with Babe, Lady and Show Me the Way builded a somewhat sissy reputation for Styx.

Once again, even if he's a total sell-out now, with DVD profanating his own stuff and trying to look as 50 as he can, Dennis deYoung is THE main provider of killer songs for Styx. This compilation has a decent sound and should satisfy the hunger for old american classics, without buying the whole shebang.

A good one to own if you're looking for a quick fix.
