4 stars The debut album that Styx recorded for A&M records is notable for many reasons. First, it's the album where they started to define a sound that would later help them reach great heights. Secondly, it marks the final appearance of John Curulewski as a member of the band, and while most folks will rally behind his replacement, Tommy Shaw, there is something to be said for the style that Curulewski helped bring the band in the early years...with song styles that would never be attempted again ("Mother Dear," for example). The CD is chock-full of great tracks, including the radio friendly "Lorelei" and "Suite Madame Blue." Other tracks of note include DeYoung's romping "Born for Adventure," James Young's fun "Midnight Ride" and album opening "Light Up."
