4 stars This album was one of rock heroes in the seventies altogether with Deep Purple "Come Taste The Band", Led Zeppelin "Physical Graffiti", Gary Wright "Dream Weaver", Traffic "John Barleycorn Must Die", as well as Kayak "2nd". Yes, they are all different in their characters but they shared similar style and nuance: hard rock music. My best favorite track since that time until now is "Birn for Adventure" - what a rocking track! I was amazed with the energy, passion as well as powerfull bass guitar work combined with unique voice quality of Dennis De Young. WOW! This track is really suitable for you to play when you drive in relatively high speed at the highway and turn the music reaally LOUD! Yeah, you will get all details of the music. What a wonderful experience!

The other legendary track is of course the one which has melodic acoustic guitar at the opening ("Prelude 12"): "Suite Madame Blue". Time after time .. oh what a great entrance! I do enjoy this track as it combines nice n sweet music with hard rock with high driving rhythm and heavy riffs. This IS STYX, my friend. It rocks the world! The other interesting track is "Lorelei", "Light Up".

It's an excellent classic rock album. Keep on rockin' ..!
