Styx’s feisty, straightforward brand of album rock is represented best by “Blue Collar Man” from 1978’s Pieces of Eight, an invigorating keyboard and guitar rush — hard and heavy, yet curved by Tommy Shaw’s emphasized vocals. Reaching number 21, with the frolicking romp of “Renegade” edging in at number 16 only six months later, Pieces of Eight maintained their strength as a front-running FM radio group.Read More

There’s something about career milestones that make many artists look fondly to the past, and Yusuf — the artist who rose to international fame in the ’70s as Cat Stevens — is no different than anyone else in this respect. 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of his first success on the U.K. charts with the single “I Love My Dog,” and on his album The Laughing Apple — the first for his own Cat-O-Log label — he explicitly looks back to his early days, albeit filtered through the eyes of experience.Read More

Recorded prior to his November 2016 death, On a Distant Shore isn’t a strict return to the chintzy, homemade digital productions Leon Russell specialized in prior to his 2010 Elton John-assisted comeback The Union, but it’s a far cry from the warmth of the 2014 solo affair Life Journey. With producer Mark Lambert, Russell favors a clean, crisp sound for On a Distant Shore, one that is in the same ballpark as the endless albums he released in the 2000s.Read More
