Like other reviewers, I have been a long time STYX fan (since 1977), and I am also looking forward to fresh material. The live recordings are becoming less satisfying because of the number of songs already recorded live over the last 6 years. However, this CD includes new live recordings of "Love is the Ritual," "Half-penny Two-penny," and "Sing for the Day." With the addition of Gowan's "Criminal Mind" and the short clips of "High Enough" and "Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough," almost 1/2 of the CD is new live material. None of these songs were played in concert last year when I saw STYX perform with Foreigner, so they are a welcome recording.
I disagree with those who say that this group is no longer STYX because of the loss of Dennis DeYoung. Many groups have undergone notable line-up changes without changing the name of the group. The sound on STYXWORLD is definitely STYX, with the same energy the group had in the late 70's. I am still a big Dennis DeYoung fan, but his absence from STYX doesn't take anything away from the group, but it has caused the group to evolve. Burtnik's replacement of Shaw in 1991 didn't take away from the group, but added a new dimension instead. Burtnik is now playing together with Shaw, and Gowan is an entertaining addition in place of DeYoung. He will never be like DeYoung, nor should he try to be. STYX has been evolving since Tommy Shaw replaced Jon C. for the Equinox tour.
I am hoping that the group will be able record a complete CD in the near future of all new material, with the current line-up, even if they are legally required to change their name (which I don't think they should have to do). It will be greatly anticipated by many true STYX fans. In the mean time, enjoy this 1/2 new recording and 1/2 re-recording! It is an energetic, enjoyable listen.

This release is drawn from four shows: February 10-11, 2000 Kosei Nenken Hall, Tokyo, Japan / October 27, 2000 Stadthalle, Offenbach, Germany and February 11, 2001 Shaw Center, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. One of the things that I like best about this disc is that over half of the songs featured are unique to this cd at the time of it's release. Granted, both High Enough and Sometimes Love Just Ain't Enough aren't full length versions but I prefer the acoustic versions to the original electric ones anyway. Yeah, Dennis isn't here and his songs due suffer a bit for it but Lawrence is a good keyboardist/vocalist and his A Criminal Mind is a good song. I like the fact that they don't particularly overdo the Dennis songs here. There are only three songs that Dennis used to sing used here and two of those were co written with other members. We get live versions of songs like Sing For The Day, Love Is The Ritual and Half-Penny, Two-Penny which are all good versions.

Let me start with the positive aspects of this album, which are minimal. It is interesting to hear J.Y. on "Lorelei"; "Love Is The Ritual" rocks, and "Sing For The Day" doesn't sound bad, even if the last verse is missing! "Crystal Ball" sounds better than before, but it is the third time around.. Now for the downside, here we go, the fourth live Styx album, and the third to feature "Come Sail Away", "Crystal Ball", "Snowblind", "Rockin' The Paradise", and "Miss America"(which I can't believe made the album with those laughable vocals). With that in mind, one might ponder the point of this collection, did we really need to hear those songs again?? There are only four songs here that have never appeared on a live Styx album before, "Sing For The Day", "Half Penny, Two Penny", "Love Is The Ritual", and Lawrence's "A Criminal Mind", oh, unless you count the two minute versions of "High Enough", and "Sometimes Love Aint Enough", something I didn't realize til after I bought the cd, sure, the times are listed on the back, but it didn't dawn on me that Styx would pull something that low, considering those songs are even mentioned on the promotional sticker, what a joke. What's disappointing here is this really could have been a good album, even if it was live. They should have only done songs that have never before been released live, and then added at least three new tracks to hold people over til their next studio album.Read more ›

This and all "Styx" releases should be titled "The Grand Illusion" numbers 1, 2, 3, etc.--since the current line-up seems to think the long-time Styx fan wants to hear impersonations of the obviously missing member. I am no great fan of Dennis DeYoung specifically, but what made Styx great was the creative combination of DeYoung, Shaw, and JY. They keep rehashing the same old songs--when in fact they had a golden opportunity to actually bring fans of almost 30 years new fresh material when they started the non-promoted, seemingly forgotten Brave New World album, which was clearly not a group effort, but which does have some good new material. Two songs from the album were performed in the 'new Styx' show I saw in summer 2000. You can't have the Rolling Stones without Mick Jagger, you can't have the Beatles without John Lennon--I can go to any number of area ice houses and find some good Styx 'cover band.' This Styx has found moderate success only by packaging itself with other classic bands--it could not have stood alone on its own, and this album gives us just more of its rehashed material when we could instead be enjoying fresh, new, great songs if these three core Styx members could recognize why they were great, put aside their ego battles, and gives fans that made them rich a few more albums of new songs, without the 'DeYoung fill-in.'
