Soonafter, the group opted to change their name once more, this time to Styx, named after a river from Greek mythology that ran through the 'land of the dead' in the underworld.

The idea of a Styx box set has been kicking around and rumored (3 to 4 discs of stuff) for at least five years now, if not longer.
Fast forward over four years later to 2004, where all lawsuits are settled and both sides have made proverbial peace (as much as you can when the split was as, shall we say not friendly, as this one was).
In the meantime, Styx fans of all types (casual, die-hard, and anything inbetween) should really go grab this one when it is released on May 4th.

 Styx
But the big advantage is that Styx II is among this band's least pretentious pieces of music - and mind you, I'm speaking of a band that runs a no-concurrents race for the title of "America's Most Bloated Rock Outfit".
Nevertheless, despite all odds and despite the poor reputation of Styx's early period (which Styx have a serious hand in themselves, pretty much disavowing everything written before 1974), Styx II still remains a pinnacle of sorts for the band and an interesting document of progressive rock's transmutations in the States.
The guy who reviewed Styx on the Prindle page said that all of their early albums sucked and all of the albums from the mid-Seventies period are great.

Sometimes, Styx slips into hard rock phrasings (as did Kansas), but in doing so they helped forge a new style of prog that would be adopted by bands like Boston and proved more palatable to American ears.
I’d recommend this album even if it didn’t harbor a certain “Lady,” and suspect that Styx II is the one to own among the band’s early elpees.
