4 stars This is Styx debut album. It is much less 'arena-rock' oriented and more 'roots-rock' oriented, soguht of closer to Lynyrd Skynyrd say, than Van Halen. It is a highly enjoyable set, with the Hippy anthem 'Children of the land' kicking things off in fine fashion. The mezmerizing 'Mother natures Matinee' shows off their prog talents, featuring some amazingly vivid textures. My favourite track, however, has to be the country-rocker 'Right Away', it's so catchy! Most of the songs that follow are quite catchy and the album is quite diverse. It's this diversity that keeps it interesting. I also like the fusion of various styles into certain songs.
