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.

The songs written originally by the members still in the band. "High Enough" is really good from Tommy Shaw's Damn Yanees collaberation with Ted Nugent and Jack Blades. Read morePublished on September 26, 2006 by DANtheSTYXfan
This is bad. It starts of with the terrible Rockin' The Paradise. It is a great rocker, but Lawrence Gowan sings horrible on this song. Read morePublished on January 15, 2006 by Talking Nigro

It's nice, but in my opinion are 'at rivers edge', and 'Return to paradise' much better. I also think that 'Caught in the act'
is much better. Read more
I've seen Styx a couple times, recently. I am supremely confident that this is the best STYX lineup, ever. Dennis DeYoung is not needed anymore. Read morePublished on July 23, 2004 by Mirage
All in all, a great album. It starts off kicking the listener in the pants with "Rockin the Paradise." The new lead vocals blow Dennis DeYoung's version out of the water. Read morePublished on August 17, 2003 by Ryan Cupp
