3 stars Okay, first let me get it out there that I enjoy the classic albums of Styx. You know, Equinox, Grand Illusion, ...etc...but I consider the Wooden Nickel years to be pre-classic. I did have these as albums many years ago but failed to like them much. Rough, bluesy, rocky, unfufilled ideas, murky sound, and even really embarassing at times. So, looking at this I see a combo of their first four albums on 2 discs with pretty nice packaging. And for way less money than for the seperate discs. A decent value and fine for checking out the genesis of Styx. 3 stars for being useful even though the music contained herein deserves only 2 stars.
