The Best of Styx is a bit of a misleading title, since this eleven-track collection misses many of their big '70s hits, including "Come Sail Away," "Fooling Yourself (The Angry Young Man)" and "Blue Collar Man (Long Nights)." "Lady, " "You Need Love, " "Best Thing" and "Winner Takes All" are here, along with some album tracks that help make the collection interesting, but the fact of the matter is, The Best of Styx is missing too many essential items to be considered definitive. Nevertheless, it is enjoyable and it's not a bad choice for casual fans on a tight budget.
