We gave it a C

Seven years after breaking up, Styx — at best, an overblown bar band with clumsy English art-rock pretensions — is back in business, testing the commercial climate for richly sung schlock. Although Midwestern sincerity and solid creative effort prevent this derivative album, Edge of the Century, from sounding entirely crass, the gaping lack of originality (these guys have obviously been listening to a lot of rock radio) guarantees its mediocrity.
