The first album, `In The Court of The Crimson King' is, IMo, one of the best and all-important albums around. It helped to kickstart a genre. When Pete Townsend first reviewed the albm, he called it an `uncanny masterpiece. This music is intensity,not rock.' I agree. Very few albums or bands have be...

Styx never did it for me as a band. They were nothing more than a sludgy, smudged up copy of the Britsh prog bands For me, it`s the difference between a Stroh`s light and a Guiness.
