Styx: Styx II

Album Notes

Styx's second album marked the first recorded appearance of their signature song "Lady." The song was the original power ballad, the tune that would break the group through to a national audience. It didn't happen right away, though, as STYX II was something of a sleeper.

While Styx waited for stardom, they kept purveying their blend of pop, prog, and heavy rock. In fact, the album contains a couple of the group's most prog-oriented pieces, including Dennis DeYoung's adaptation of Bach's "Fugue in G," and original guitarist John Curulewski's fanciful "A Day," which moves from Yes-like vocal harmonies to a chops-filled instrumental section over a daunting time signature. Elsewhere, riff-heavy hard rock ("I'm Gonna Make You Feel It") rubs shoulders with wistful, epic balladry ("Father O.S.A., The Earl of Roseland)."
