From 1975 to 1979 they released 5 really good albums. The rest of their stuff has been pretty inconsistent. The Grand Illusion is their best and most cohesive album. Other than that they seem to be more of a greatest hits band.

Styx represents how music became bloated in the late 70s... Yes, they can play like nobody's business. But their sound is so awkward and grandiose, and their lyrics silly. This style of music combined with disco led to the punk rebellion.

Styx are a fun band. They're kind of in that "pseudo-prog category"; sometimes they sound proggy, sometimes they sound like a straight-ahead rock band. Anything before Mr. Roboto is fine by me.

A days of yore favourite. Styx were once considered to be among the Top acts around. Then they went Domo Arigato on us and so many good bands came giving us reasons to more or less forget them. To me the music of Styx is like a dear old friend that deserved to be "put back in its place" ... but not so harshly. They did produce great songs and quite good albums (Particularly the run going from Equinox to Paradise). They have their place in my heart, I am not one to forget my early loves but no, I don't listen to them much anymore.

STYX has made a lot of great music. I grew up listening to them. Equinox is very good album that is not on any charts. Saw them live in Milwaukee Wi. One of the best concerts I've ever seen.
