Styx Paradise Theatre

 

Styx
Paradise Theatre
A&M Records
1981

 

I was never the biggest Styx fan, but as a kid, I loved this album. It had some screaming guitars by James Young (“Snowblind” and “Half-Penny”), new-wave-ish pop by Tommy Shaw (“Too Much Time”) and some funky theatrical jazz by Dennis DeYoung (“Nothing Ever Goes As Planned”).

The packaging was cool. The LPs had laser etching and the cover and back paintings were fantastic – truly a lost art!
