4.0 out of 5 stars Still A Great Band. 30 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Yes i know there has been a lot of Styx compilations over the years,The main difference with this one is the tracks seem to have been remastered,The only reason i have not given a 5 star rating is the omission of "Don't Let It End" This track has always been a favourite of mine and i think that it should have been included,Still i suppose it's just a matter of opinion.I also wonder was it not possible to add on a couple of tracks off the 2 recent Styx cds"Cyclorama" & "Brave New World" I fully understand that those 2 cds were released on a different label to this compilation,But surely there was a way round it.All things considered though an excellent compilation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very nice, especially for the price 30 Sep 2010
By J. HARMON - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This double disc compillation is not a must have for any and all STYX fans... but is a very nice overview of the classic A&M years for novice fans who are interested only in the hit songs from the halcyon days of the band, with the original version of LADY added on.

Not as encompassing as the two disc COME SAIL AWAY: THE STYX ANTHOLOGY (which is now sold as STYX GOLD), but more of a value ladened set than buying the 1995 and 1996 STYX Greatest Hits and Greatest Hits Part 2.

As mentioned the original WOODEN NICKLE version of LADY is here as well as the full length version of MAN IN THE WILDERNESS, which was first released on the ANTHOLOGY in 2003.

The sound quality of these two discs is excellent, with vibrant sound but never harsh. Very clear sounding but never attempting to mask over the flaws of the original recording technology - removing too much hiss can have a negative effect on vocals and certain instrumentation.

The liner notes include only authorship of songs. There is not any comments, commentary, factoids of other... just the required information for copyrighted material.

This is a great set for those who wish to play the hit songs in the car stereo system or for taking to parties, etc... without risking the loss or damage of an expensive release that would cause distress to the wallet or the psyche.

It is a shame that LOVE IS THE RITUAL is included (along with SHOW ME THE WAY) instead of ALL IN A DAY'S WORK or some of the best songs recorded after 1996. I, for one, beleive that the LADY '95 version is superior to the original... but I am biased.

Overall, a very good buy if you are in need of a greatest hits set from STYX... not necessary for die hard fans who already own everything in other releases.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Solid, if Unnecessary, Release 20 July 2011
By Tim Brough - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As far as Band for the Buck is concerned, this 2 CD set of Styx songs from the A&M years is worth its price. It loads you up with 24 songs and gives it to you at a superb, budget price. It even brings back the original, top ten version of "Lady" from 1974, replacing the Tommy Shaw "Lady 95" from the greatest hits collection. It covers mainly the superstar years from "Equinox" to the Dennis DeYoung centric "End of The Century," with nothing after that album.

However, the packaging is minimal. The sole photo of the band is the back cover, from what looks like an alternate shot from "The Grand Illusion." The inner-sleeve is a listing of the songs and writing credits, production credits, but with no listing of dates or albums. I must add the the remastering sounds terrific and makes me wish for some deluxe versions of the original albums! If you don't already have "Styx: Gold" (2 discs and 35 songs) or the 1995 single disc Greatest Hits, this will suit you well. But this is likely best for the casual Styx fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another exemplary reissue! 21 Sep 2010
By Donald Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Mike Jones has done it again, with this quality digitally assembled Styx reissue. The breadth and depth of equalization is without a doubt the best of any Styx reissue to date. Listen to the "bell" coming from the left channel on "Lady" and you will agree. And at a budget price to boot! ddj

1.0 out of 5 stars Same old songs 23 Feb 2011
By Mike S - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Here we go again. More re-hash from Shaw Young. Because they're incapable of writing a decent song or producing a decent album without Dennis Deyoung (the leader of the band that they forced out). Since then, countless live albums, repackages, cover songs, even re-recordings of the same old songs. You know the line-up- Blue collar man, Renegade, Come Sail away, yada yada yada. I'll admit, it's a good collection, but so was Greatest Hits, Greatest Hits 2, Classics, The Best of Times, the Singles Collection, Gold, 20th Century Masters, etc. Not including the disgusting Yesterday & Today and Rockers. Including Live albums, songs like Come Sail Away and Renegade must be on at least a dozen different Styx albums by now. Get the picture? In the 14 (!) years since they booted Dennis they have released ONE album of orginal new songs (that stynx by the way).

Sadly, this is all they're capable of producing these days, but I already have these songs several times over.
