Title - 'One With Everything' (UMe)
Artist - Styx w/ Contemporary Youth Orchestra
You can laugh all you want at Styx, I don't care. Styx pushed the envelope when it came to experimenting with their sound and I commend them for that. They may sound silly or dated to others, but they'll be remembered for many things(and not just "Mr. Roboto"). That said, never have I heard STYX sound so amazing than on this new album of theirs ... and I have been a fan forever! The blend of generations, the shared energy among these amazing musicians of STYX and the Contemporary Youth Orchestra and Chorus will blow your mind. The song selection is good because it is diverse. I really like the two new songs included here too. The energy level on this CD is through the roof and the arrangements are perfect for the occasion. I highly recommend this CD to anyone who has ever liked STYX. It's hard to pick a best song because they are all good but the songs 'One With Everything' and 'A Criminal Mind' are two of the CD's highlights; to my mind, at least! Try it ... you'll like it!!! I can not wait for the DVD so I can watch the magic!!
