The Grand Illusion



        Oh the Grand Illusion, you prove everything that is wrong about Styx. There are only two good songs on this album, and I'm pretty sure I only bought this because of that episode of South Park where Cartman declared he can't not sing Come Sail Away if someone starts singing the song.

       That said, the Tommy Shaw penned Fooling Yourself (Angry Young Man) and James Young offering, Miss America are the only decent songs. Come Sail Away was the big hit, but is just so over played, and much better in a live setting with five extra minutes of "come sail away, come sail away, come sail away with me, lad." Ha, I kid, it's not even good then.
