Early on their music brought to mind the likes of prog rockers, The Moody Blues, Emerson and Lake & Palmer. Which was very much the sound of the 1970's. And their live performances developed and progressed they began touring with the mighty Def Leppard, Foreigner, Journey, Boston, REO Speedwagon, and Bad Company to name a few. This life-changing experience carried them further towards the classic rock era of the 80's and gave birth to their concept album – 1981's Paradise Theater.
Paradise Theater became Styx's best selling record, gaining over three million copies in just three years. This amazing achievement earnt them the title of the U.S. top rock act! And they were soon beginning to smash the charts with singles as "Too Much Time on My Hands." The album also marked a very special change in music history as the first ever band to release four consecutive triple-platinum albums!
