    I was 12 when this album came out and Styx (along with Cheap Trick) was my favorite band. I actually bought this album in the supermarket (yes, you read that correctly!) with a small loan from my dad and promise to do an extra chore to pay him back. Although it is not the best release, I love it for the feelings I get from the music to this day. It brings me back to a time in my life when I was on a journey of exploration and discovery of music, girls and life.

    I bought this album the day in came out, while a freshman in college. The excitement about the album has wained through the years. In other words, its not classic, good Styx. SY’s songs are by far the best…the remainder, are nearly unlistenable.

    My brother, Chris Hopkins did the front and back artwork on this album as well as the design for the etching on the vinyl. I have the artists proof hanging in my office.

      That’s really cool. He did a bang up job for sure, so much that I attempted to, as an 12 year old could, paint the front and back covers in watercolor. A lot of imperfections for sure (I call it character). I stared at the art (the better art your brother did) for hours and would get lost in it, no drugs needed. I noticed that the actual Paradise Theater building looked very different than the one on the cover, did he use a different theater as a reference? It resembles the Granada Theater that was in Rogers Park.
