I suggested that once and some people thought it was blasphemous.

Me, too. But not so much for better production but because those songs have evolved so much since they were originally recorded.  War Begun and Picture of You in particular are about half complete in the TF album.

This is a great album though, especially for a debut.  It's difficult to say which album is the best, so I won't.

TTF is by far the least best album by MMJ.  

i can't understand why so many people like it.  i don't mind simple, poor, sloppy production, but the production on this album bothers me.

I can see putting TTF number one sometimes, although At Dawn remains at one far more frequently in my heart. Some say they can't see how TTF is high, I can't see how people place Z as number one. I know it all falls into personal opinion, and putting Z up against most other band's records is a no brainer for me, but when I am only in the mood for some Jacket-- I typically only play "Lay Low," 'Anytime," "Dondate," and 'off the record" from Z. But I can play TTF all the way through every time I put it on.

No freakin' way...The Grand Illusion is the only essential Styx album.  If you don't play "Come Sail Away", it's their most complete record, IMHO.

I just wanted to see how many quote windows I could get on one post.  It's like an Atari space warp or something.
I'm digging, digging deep in myself, but who needs a shovel when you have a little boy like mine.

Come Sail Away still sucks.  Like most Dennis DeYoung written songs.

Mr. Roboto, though...that's a horse of a different color.  ;)

I've been thinking about it and I believe that ' Crystal Ball ' is their most definitve work.

I just moved my styx albums from the record crate in the living area into a box hidden away in a closet.

I had not thought about Styx at all for like, forever...but "Suite Madame Blue" from Equinox is one kick ass fuckin' song.  I'm gonna have some weird ass acid flashback dreams tonight... ;)
