4 stars While none of the many Styx efforts would get a 5 star review by me, this one comes the closest. (Grand Illusion is next). There are some amazing rock tracks on here: "Lorelei", "Light Up", "Born for Adventure" being my favorites. As usual, JY contributes a harder rock anthem, "Midnight Ride", and , also as usual, it leaves me cold. I have never been a big fan of James Young's contributions to Styx albums. However, that song is the only really weak point I can find on this release. This albums is kind of the beginning point of the "new" Styx and the ending of the "old" Styx. While I can appreciate the effort that went into their earlier albums, I never thought that Styx were meant to be a full-blown Prog group. This album, and the ones following it, show the "real" Styx in all their arena rock glory. Bombastic, yet oh so cool! 4 stars.
