Assembled with the cooperation of the band, Styx's entry in Universal's 20th Century Masters -- The Millennium Collection series of discount-priced best-of's, surveys the group's tenure at A&M Records, where they scored most of their popular success. Of course, the early hit "Lady," recorded for RCA-distributed Wooden Nickel Records and thus in the vaults of rival major label BMG, is not included. Neither are the Top Ten hit "Don't Let It End," or the Top 20 hit "Renegade" mistakenly called a Top Ten hit in the liner notes. But the rest of Styx's big A&M hits -- "Too Much Time on My Hands," "Come Sail Away," "Mr. Roboto," "The Best of Times," "Babe," "Show Me ...

Now, fans reluctant to put out the money for Styx's two volumes of Greatest Hits can have the bulk of their radio hits on one inexpensive album.

    Not reccomended for Styx fans.

    This collection of hits from Styx is a mere 11 song collection. Although some of their big hits are on here, not all of the big ones are. The most unneccessary song is obviously "Mademoiselle". Why that's on here instead of "Crystal Ball", I don't know. Other missing hits include "The Grand Illusion", "Renegade" and "Miss America". Now that I think of it, I probably would not reccomend this collection to anyone, being that there are plenty of other better Styx compilations out there.
