Review by Muzikman
PROG REVIEWER
5 stars Do you wonder what the cover is all about on this Styx CD? I do. It may refer to the proverbial dangling carrot, who knows. In the booklet with the CD, there are references to carrots throughout; it is a mystery to me. There is one thing I am certain of though, this band still kicks ass going into their fourth decade of recording. Those of you still whining about Dennis De Young not being with the band, get over it, he is gone. They are unaffected by his absence, and seem to be doing just fine. They have a new fresh lineup that sounds fantastic; in fact, if they did not have that shakeup they probably would not have survived as a band and you would be reading solo album reviews of JY and Tommy Shaw material on a more regular basis than a Styx review.

Everyone gets equal time in this band with each member contributing songs and vocals. A real nice mix gives them a range that they did not have in the classic rock '70s lineup. Those were great times with many memorable albums recorded. In 2003, you can chalk up another one for them in the classic albums category. At one time, they were a leading progressive rock band; now they are a great rock 'n' roll band, plain and simple. That works just fine and dandy for me thank you very much.

There are so many great tunes on this album. The lead off track "Do Things My Way" has hit single written all over it. Loaded with smart hooks while rocking along hard to maintain their familiar sound, this song will not get out of your head any time soon. The thing I really appreciate about these guys is that you can always understand what they are singing. A lot of the time, I base my reviews on music alone because I cannot understand a blasted word. I guarantee by the time you listen to this album the second time you will be singing right along. They have a good sense of humor and use their lyrics to point at the truths of the heart and the irony that life can bring. "Bourgeois Pig" and "Kiss Your Ass Goodbye" are prime examples of that attitude and approach to their presentation. I thought the time machine effect of using a song from Grand Illusion was cool in "Fooling Yourself (Palm Of Your Hands)," which runs only 39 seconds, then launches into a rockin' track called "Captain America." "Waiting For Our Time" is another killer track and one that will become a favorite at concerts I am sure. All of their music comes complete with soaring vocals and harmonies bolstered by lively guitars, the trademark of this band. JY and Tommy play and sing as if their lives depended on it. I think that it keeps them young and hungry. They are more than the core element of this band, they push the other group members to levels that they have never been before. There is some electric chemistry going on here, which is a rare thing in any group that has been around as long as they have.

Okay youngsters, you think this is an old group that Mom and Dad used to listen to, well, that may be true but they still can rock your soul today just as they did when they started back in the day. Very few bands can do that in this day age and you can read me my last rights if it is not true.

2 stars Kiss your originality goodbye

Released in 2003, "Cyclorama" was Styz first album without key founding member Dennis DeYoung. The album however finds Styx treading the water of unchallenging melodic pop rock. The album consists entirely of the band's well worn diet of upbeat anthems designed to please the crowds at live gigs, plus "Babe" clone ballads.

"Do things my way" opens the album in Bon Jovi like fashion, with some designer guitar fuelled stadium rock. "Kiss your ass goodbye" has almost rap like verses and a light punk pop feel to the choruses. The melody of the choruses is very similar to "Where you going now" by Damn Yankees but played a little faster. "Fooling yourself" has rougher vocals, giving a Grand Funk Railroad flavour.

Of the softer tracks, "Yes I can" is for me the best track on the album, being a harmonic acoustic number, along the lines of Extreme's surprise hit single "More than words". "These are the times" is slightly more structured, but still ventures little from being pop rock.

The closing track "Genki Desu Ka" has a chanted repeating theme, a bit like a cross between the Doobie Brothers and some of King Crimson's 80's work. Although shown as being a 6 minute piece, the track includes a hidden element which contains a phased reprise of "Kiss your ass goodbye" and a harmonised message to close.

Styx have never been truly progressive band, and have always sat on the edge of this site in terms of their musical style. With "Cyclorama", they played it disappointingly safe by churning out a collection of songs which could have been recorded at pretty much any time in their career. Tracks such as "More love for the money" and "Killing the thing that you love" start out deceptively by hinting that they may be in some way different but all to soon the standard Styx chorus comes in, and reminds us that this is a band who appear to have foregone all ambition and adopted the sole objective of resting on their laurels.

4 stars CYCLORAMA is in many ways a return to form, even without founder Dennis DeYoung. My favorite track here, for several reasons, is the beautifully dark "These Are The Times." Finally we have something that harkens back to the days of their moodier writing, something that made me appreciate Styx ... (read more)

1 stars Oh this just sucks. Dennis is missed. Brave new world was OK, but this one doesn't work. I think the band could continue without Tommy Shaw, and they did for a while-- but they can't go on without Dennis.

2 stars Well, I like the cameo from Billy Bob Thorton. Not being a big SHAW fan, this probably wasn't going to be one I'd like a lot. There's a few OK songs on it, and if you love TOMMY then it's probably a must have. I like what DeYOUNG brought to STYX and for me, was most of the magic of STYX. 'Kiss ... (read more)

4 stars To paraphrase a famous commentator, rumors of Styx' demise are complete crap.

5 stars After 20 years of waiting, Styx finally returns with an album worthy of their name.
