AllMusic Review by

Universal's 2012 box rounds up four of Styx's most popular albums -- The Grand Illusion, Pieces of Eight, Paradise Theater, and the conceptual album Kilroy Was Here -- and then adds 20th Century Masters - The Millennium Collection for good measure. The presence of the compilation is a little baffling, as there is a lot of overlap between this disc and the other four albums ("Babe" is the one big hit here not on the other albums). Also puzzling is that these are straight-up reissues, not remasters, so there is nothing to entice hardcore Styx fans, but anybody looking to get these four big Styx albums plus a bunch of hits once again should be pleased with this.
