4 stars "Pieces of Eight" along with "Equinox", "The Grand Illusion", "Cristal Ball" and "Paradise Theather", certainly is one of the best albuns from STYX ... and are fairly superior to their next album "Cornerstone". Bring in his set list some classic tunes from the band, as for instance: "The Great White Hope", "Lords of the Ring", "Renegade" and the great radio hit "Blue Collar Man" ( probably the most famous track from STYX after "Babe" from "Cornerstone" but totaly different (Babe is a very beautiful ballad and "Blue Collar Man" is a realy hard-prog).. However, the album reserves another great instrumental moments like in track 2 "I'm OK" with Tommy Shaw's great guitar solo (very expressive and full of feeling) , on the track 3 "Sing for the Day" where keyboards stand out and the midlle section in "Piieces of Eight" (starting at 2:31 until 3:05 min) before the first guitar solo. My rate is 4 stars !!! :
