They're probably not considered prog, but hell ill do it anyway. This is Styx, an American rock band from Chicago and decided to do something like this on my spare time. So, what do u think?? Oh and also, the first four albums with the slash in the middle represent the 2 titles used for the same album

Can't beat "The Grand Illusion". The whole first side is the happiest music I know. All great songs. "Paradise Theater" and "Pieces of Eight" are also really strong though.

Well...the only good thing about Styx is their name.
I voted Grand Illusion..at least there are a couple of decent tracks on that one.

I think this is a case where the commercial breakthrough reflected the peak of creativity, that is The Grand Illusion. They had done some fine recordings before, notably Equinox and Styx II, and the only thing comparable afterwards was the follow-up Pieces of Eight.

This poll should be moved to the "Prog-related" forum.
