under-rated live album,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Return to Paradise (Audio CD)
Hard to believe this came out in '98 and disappeared almost immediately,going for silly money,I've waited a while but managed to get it for a decent price.
2 cd's of prime Styx,live in concert celebrating the 'Paradise Theatre' album with 4 tracks,those being, 'Best of Times/Rockin' The Paradise,the superb 'Too Much Time...,and a heavy 'Snowblind'.All the other greats are here including 'Come Sail Away/Babe/Grand Illusion/Reneagade/Crystal Ball etc
Strangely the album is topped and tailed with new (at the time) studio cuts:'On My Way','Paradise' and 'Dear John',they all show the AOR side of the band and are excellent.
Sound quality is very good,performance excellent,Vocals superb,although some people may find Denis De Youngs schmalz between songs overbearing,it doesnt bother me,rather adds to the charm.
