All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
Like 2004's less than stellar Cyclorama, those looking for this to be the big Styx record that will catapult them back into the mainstream will be sorely disappointed in the contents of this record. It's not a CD of new material, rather, it's a 14-song collection of covers from some of the band's influences and all-time rock favorites.

Also included are the Who's "I Can See for Miles," the Lovin' Spoonful's "Summer in the City," Blind Faith's "Can't Find My Way Home," Jimi Hendrix's "Manic Depression," Jethro Tull's ...

All fine choices, and in combination with Styx's usual clean production and relaxed atmosphere around the usually serious album format makes Big Bang Theory a record that die-hard fans will enjoy and casual fans might regard as a passing novelty stopgap in between records.

    Another Styx Winner

    This may not be songs wtitten by Styx but it is still a major hit. I bought the first day of release and have listened to it many times. Being a big time styx fan I don't think think they could possible put out a bad album. Try it . It is really diferant

    Big Bang Theory

    Though not usually a fan of cover albums, I was quite impressed with "Big Bang." Styx did a fine job of selecting and performing each song on the album and it makes for a rather enjoyable listening experience. If you are a fan of classic rock, this is definitely a must have.

    Big Bang Theory

    This album is fantastic. I have only had it for a day but have listened already countless times. Its a really cool concept: covering songs and artists that inspired you. Styx didnt take it lightly either, each song is incredibly well done. You will definitely enjoy this one, trust me.

    Big Bang Theory

    This album is great from start to finish. Styx do fine covers of some classic songs, giving them their own flavor without ruining the essence of the original. "Summer in the city" and "I am the walrus" are two of my personal favorites. I definitely reccomend this one without any reservations.
