Product Description

Styx are one of the most successful AOR bands of all time with worldwide album sales in the millions. On May 25, 2006 they took the stage in Cleveland for a new venture accompanied by the 115 piece Contemporary Youth Orchestra and a 60 member chorus. With a set list that combined Styx classics, new songs and cover versions this was a truly unique event.

TRACKLISTING 1. Blue Collar Man 2. Lorelei 3. One With Everything 4. It Don't Make Sense (You Can't Make Peace) 5. Can't Find My Way Home 6. I Am The Walrus 7. Just Be 8. Everything All the Time 9. Crystal Ball 10. Miss America 11. Criminal Mind 12. Too Much Time On My Hands 13. Boat on the River 14. I Don't Need No Doctor 15. Medley: Put Me On / Mademoiselle / Heavy Metal Poisoning / Midnight Ride / Sing for the Day / Shooz / Queen of Spades / Great White Hope / Half Penny Two Penny / Borrowed Time / Rockin' the Paradise / Lights / Man in the Wilderness 16.

BONUS FEATURES * Two new Styx Christmas songs filmed at the same concert: 1. All I Want 2. Ring The Bells * Interview. * Photo gallery.

For Styx fans, the opportunity to see the band perform with a symphony orchestra is da bomb; for others, it may simply be da bombast. Either way, One With Everything is a spectacle. Of course, the Styx who ruled the AOR airwaves in their '70s-'80s heyday, followed by their ascension to Classic Rock status, has been through some changes in the last several years. In the absence of Dennis DeYoung (which means we are mercifully spared DeYoung-penned hits like "Come Sail Away" and the cloying "Babe"), singer-guitarists Tommy Shaw and James Young have moved up front. Yet the more things change, the more they stay the same, and Styx remains what it always was: a facile, journeyman band, capable of writing some good rock songs ("Blue Collar Man," "Too Much Time on My Hands," "Fooling Yourself"), with a sound that's distinctive but, in the long run, not especially interesting. Still, there's no denying the sheer joy and energy that permeates this May, 2006 concert, both onstage and in the audience. Much of that is due to the presence of the Contemporary Youth Orchestra of Cleveland, an enormous ensemble (115 players and 56 singers) comprised entirely of teenagers. Under the direction of Liza Grossman, these kids are having a blast, and their enthusiasm is infectious, as Shaw, Young, and the other Styx-ters (original bassist Chuck Panozzo sits in on a few tunes) are clearly giving it their all. In fact, it's almost too much; there's a certain shrillness to the group's screeching lead vocals and super-high harmonies that ends up being both exhausting and slightly discomfiting. Not that this will matter to the band's adherents, who should be delighted by a show that's well over two hours long and includes covers of Willie Dixon's "It Don't Make Sense (You Can't Make Peace)," the Beatles "I Am The Walrus," and Ashford and Simpson's "I Don't Need No Doctor" in addition to Styx's own material. Bonus features include a couple of new Christmas songs, interviews, and more. --Sam Graham

STYX' previous concert DVD's CAUGHT IN THE ACT and RETURN TO PARADISE have had their positive attributes and some less than positive attributes. While both are nice releases, they simply do not compare with the ONE WITH EVERYTHING concert dvd release.

On this night Tommy, JY, and Lawrence are in exceptional form in their vocal effort as they give everything they have to not only hit the high notes but sustain them with power and vibrato. The instrumentation is gorgeous from all of the boys. The set list for this show is "awesome" with many new songs included (particularly the medley.) While some favorites are absent, they are well represented in the previous releases.

The filming is outstanding with every member given lots of premium camera time (which could not always be said in the previous dvd releases.) The sound quality of the disc is exceptional.

The bonus features alone make this release worthy... as the two Christmas songs are very nice (Gowan's RING THE BELLS being truly exceptional.)

The coup de grace of this release is the long awaited "drum solo" from Mr. Todd Sucherman. While not truly a drum solo (though he does bang em when being introduced TWICE by Tommy ("is that enough drumming for y'all?") Shaw... this drum solo is the Quake Cam bonus video of Todd and ONLY Todd (with the other band members sound mixed out) beating the heck out of his drum kit during the shows STYX medley.

Lastly, the exuberance of the teenagers of the orchestra and chorus really bring out the best from the 'old guys' with whom they share the stage.

Most concert dvd's I watch 2, 3 or 4 times and then put them away forever. This one I can't stop watching!! From beginning to end, it is just a MAGNIFICENT release.

First thing i need to get off my chest: will you people get over the fact that Dennis DeYoung isn't in the band anymore? It's been played to death, and he's not coming back. I compare it to Steve Perry and Journey and Peter Gabriel and Genesis. Yes, they all made some amazing music together. And no, they're not getting back together again. It's as simple as that. The nice part about gabriel leaving genesis is that we got more music out of the whole deal...from him, from them, and from Phil Collins. Dennis DeYoung has some great solo work, and Steve Perry, if he'd go back into the studio and record something new after all this time, is an equally great talent.

Now...having said that, I myself was cynical about Styx without dennis at first...then something told me to give the new lineup a chance. Let me tell you, I'm really glad I went. The band is getting along, they're enjoying doing what they do, and it shows onstage. Lawrence Gowan is every bit the dynamic keyboardist-vocalist he's always been on his dozen or so Canadian albums prior to joining Styx. Todd Sucherman is an amazing drummer, who by the way, was a Styx fan at age 11 when he was first learning to drum, Tommy & JY are as comfortable onstage together as they've always been, and Ricky Phillips is is a master on the bass. The vocal harmonies are right there like always, they put on a fan-friendly show, and to see them up there onstage together, it's blatantly obvious that this is what they love to do.

You want to hear Dennis DeYoung? Go see one of his shows. Very entertaining, he's done at least a couple tours with a full symphony orchestra thwat rival the Moody Blues for pure enjoyment...he's still got one hell of a great voice and can he play that keyboard? Definitely.

I saw this concert aired on HD Net a few days ago, and since I was not at MY house when I saw it, I decided to see if it is available on DVD...and to my delight it IS!!!! This was a fantabulous show! The band has not lost even the slightest bit of their performing edge...if anything they've become better with age. But one of the more astounding aspects of this show is how fantastic those young people in the Cleveland Youth Orchestra were in every sense of the word. They played very well, and they appeared to be having the time of their lives sharing the stage with some of Rock Music's finer icons! I know I would have been if I were in their shoes. I don't wish to go into anymore detail about this so as not to spoil it somehow for those who may not have seen it yet. But I will say this DVD is certainly worth getting because this performance is PRICELESS!

If you miss the quintet of Dennis, John, Chuck, Jy and Tommy, then this dvd won't quite make it. But, on the other hand, if you are a Styx fan, then you are going to enjoy the show. I recommend this to all, young and ten year old loved it!

Hats off to the Contemporary Youth Orchestra, besides being a group of young talented individuals, they look like they are having the time of their lives. The band members also look like they are having lots of fun and that makes all the difference. This show is not a "staged performance" for the camera as I've watched Styx live several times and they always sound great and look like they are having a great time.

The song selection is good, but I miss not watching Dennis sing the songs that helped make Styx a great band. Enjoy!
