Incredibly strong, massive sound.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Styx: Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
Styx had an incredibly distinctive sound now some twenty years ago. This album, was aptly titled and has all their hits. Included is "Lady" (more on that though, in a moment), "Too Much Time", "Babe" and my two favorites, their two signature songs (to me, that is) being "Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man)" and "Come Sail Away" . They are all well reproduced, and inside a set of headphones will fill up your head with great music.
My only complaint? Their first hit "Lady" is included as not as the original, but as a re-recorded version. The differences are subtle, but throw it off for me just a tad. That is not enough of a reason to dog this album out, though. Ought to be an Amazon Essential!

"Lady" was originally recorded with John Curulewski on Wooden Nickle Records, so A&M decided to re-record the song with the band's classic line-up. This is what prompted JY to call Tommy Shaw in 1995 for the first time in years, and led to the reunion of the band and the successful Return to Paradise Theatre Tour in '96. The rest is history...
