    Well that's different, huh! I listened to some of the sound samples at Amazon and it doesn't really sound that bad.

    What surprised the shit out of me is that it was actually available for purchase at our local K-Mart!

    Sold out all 10 copies in 2 days ($11.99)...I picked up a copy out of curiosity.

    Nothing earth shattering, yet not bad as a novelty.

    Never cared for Styx myself.

    Cover songs are for a live show, not a studio album. Good for them though.

    Honestly Junior, as I'm not fucking with you: This is the first Styx record that I've purchased since "Grand Illusion" first hit the stores.

    Yes, I'm that old, and yes...I really still dislike them.

    Hey Chef - you ain't that old!!!

    And same here with the Styx, bring on the Styx (in moderation). Was never really into them either. My mom thinks they're cool.

    Couldn't find much on Styx in a search, so I guess I'll put this here...Mods, move as you see fit.

    Styx visits White House

    http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com...s-white-house/

    WHITE HOUSE (CNN) — It's a smaller stage than they're use to standing on but the band Styx stopped by the White House briefing room Monday and posed for pictures behind the podium as well as with reporters who are fans of the group.

    A small crowd of journo-groupies trailed the group as they had a look at the briefing room and other press work spaces while meeting with reporters, producers, and photojournalists.

    The band, with hits including Mr. Roboto and Come Sail Away, is in town for a show in the DC area but stopped by the White House Monday to get a quick tour.

    There seems to be at least 3 Styx threads going, as I found another one besides this one and the one you posted. Seems I missed the one you posted by not using an exclamation point in the search.

    I can't for the life of me imagine why we need any Styx threads.
    The Edge... there is no honest way to explain it because the only people who really know where it is are the ones who have gone over.

    This next part could really confuse things. Let's stay focused. #asis
