Styx is a progressive rock band from Chicago that was most popular during the late 1970’s and early 1980’s.  Their sound crossed boundaries from hard rock to soft rock, with a blend of acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards, and even a bit of international music.  Here is the Styx album discography.
