4 stars This is the only album from Styx I've ever had until the next 10 years when I bought their "best of" after knowing that they are actually a 'progressive' band. Well, I didn't knot it. I only new this album, and always thought that Styx was a pop/rock band. For someone who is fans of Genesis (in all line up), I have to say that I like this album very much, though. It's catchy, but it has a real quality, as every mature progressive band always has. I think that how a progressive band should move forward their music to, to an optimum combination of great skill and still great and wonderful songs which not so hard for any person to listen to. I think that what make the difference between mature progressive band, and the immature one. The immature one tend to make the music so complicated, so long, that they even forget that the song should be easy to listen, too.

And Styx with The Edge of the Century definitely come to that level where they can still put their idealism, their skill, and produce songs that even a 5 year old kid will shake their head., or move their feet.

Still I won't call it a progressive album. But it is a very high quality rock album - and what a progressive album if it's not about quality and rock, anyway?. I don't see any reason to anyone who loves rock and good music not to like, buy, and collect this album.
