Preordered and should have it on Friday.  Very stoked for this one!

Me too but I ordered from Styxworld and have not received any notification that it has shipped yet. Maybe today or tomorrow! I preordered on the site because that was the only place to get the autographed clear vinyl, Amazon only had black vinyl. If there is too much of a delay I will just download the tracks, so far I have downloaded the first three.

Wow, this is some GOOD stuff. Here are a few:





The album is best listened to as a whole. It all blends together much like a Pink Floyd album. I like it a lot so far but can't decide where it falls. It isn't like Grand Illusion or PO8. Kind of stands on its own but it definitely sounds like Styx. Actually, some it reminds me more of the Wooden Nickel stuff than the A&M stuff. The most Styx sounding is the short opener, "Overture". I was waiting for the "Midnight Ride" or "Renegade" moment but it isn't here. Thats not a bad thing, just different. I think old Styx fans will be pleased.

i picked up this album myself. i have not really kept up with 'em that much but Pieces of Eight and The Grand Illusion were played quite a bit. same with even Kilroy Was Here during my childhood days.

but i picked up this album with a open mind and was very pleasantly surprised. "Gone Gone Gone" is my favorite track though. but the album is not really meant as a song based album. it's pretty much in itself one big ass long song that is scattered with impressive moments.

solid album that very much dials back to their 70's period.

I got my copy the day it came out. To me it has kind of a Yes meets Spocks Beard feel to it. I like the return to their vintage sound on this record, but as a lifelong fan of those band The Mission is not my goto Styx record

My "goto" Styx record is Equinox. It would probably be Grand Illusion had album radio not played it to death back in the day.

If I had to choose a goto record by Styx it would be a 3 way tie between Grand Illusion, PO8, and Paradise Theatre. Equinox would also rank pretty close along with Styx I I

I like Po8 a lot too. In fact to this day I maintain that the quartet of Equinox, Crystal Ball, Grand Illusion and Pieces Of 8 is one of the best consecutive quartets of albums any band has released. I love all 4 of those...

I have all the Styx on vinyl and this new release is fantastic in top 10 of the year.
