Arguably the peak of AOR/Pomp rockers Styx,a stunning loosely based conceptual disc surrounding the old Paradise Theatre.I originally bought this the day it came out on pristine laser etched disc- aah the 80'S and their gimmicks.

A perfect album from Styx straddled the rock and pop sides to the band,on the one hand rockers like the superb 'Rockin The Paradise','Snowblind' & 'Half Penny...' all highlighted how heavy they could be and the guitar work of Shaw & Young simply stunning.The pop/aor side was beautifully covered with the likes of 'Too Much Time....' and the fabulous'Nothing Ever Goes...',how true,hit single Best of Times' easily rivals anything Journey/Foriegner produced,a fantastic album from a sadly overlooked band,one of the best albums from 1980.

I just love this album. I have it on LP but fancied it for my i-pod. This is classic Styx and the sound is still mesmorising. Punchy balanced with good ballads and proper hard rock. Must be one of the all time classics. Sit back and enjoy!

The last good album from Styx; Dennis DeYoung's domination is starting to show with too many wimpy songs. Styx rocked its hardest on Pieces Of Eight and reaped the rewards of hit singles on Cornerstone and this. Paradise Theater lacks rocking highlights like Queen Of Spades or Renegade (both on Pieces Of Eight) but manages still to be a consistent album without filler tracks.

this is another purchase fuelled by nostalgia and yes I am glad I bought this cd again as it is their best by a country mile . I can sing along with this album ,quietly of course as I am flat and out of tune but I can dream just like the air guitaristes

What a fantastic album, I have owned it since 1981 and saw them perform it live which was equally brilliant. My old copy was just worn out so it's great to have a new one now. It's been on permanently for a few weeks.

Still have the laser etched vinyl version but wanted something more portable. I can now carry around classics like the title track, Snowblind, Half Penny Two Penny, which demonstrate how much the band could rock out, while balancing that with tracks like Lonely People and the Best of Times. Tommy Shaw and James Young's talents as lead guitarists are often overlooked but this album provides ample evidence of their abilities. I agree with those reviewers who regard this as the band's best album although Cornerstone and Pieces of Eight run it a close second/third.

Good simple efficient transaction. Thanks. I had this as a record many years ago, and remembered it when discussing Styx with younger work colleagues. I still think this was their best album

Really happy to find this CD. When I was growing up I had it on tape and was so glad to find it at such a reasonable price

Bought this when I was 18, nearly 30 yrs ago. Wanted to listen to snow-blind again
Just quality, tho the vocal is a bitmore camp than I remember....
