Pieces of Eight album for sale by Styx was released Oct 25, 1990 on the A&M (USA) label. This album basically picks up where its predecessor, the breakthrough GRAND ILLUSION left off, and is equally effective.

If you like Grand Illusion, you'll also like Pieces of Eight. It's great music from beginning to end. I highly recommend it!

||May be Their Best Album With Tommy Shaw|
Arguable Yes! I Agree! BUT, Styx built a stong loyal, local fan fan base with five albums before Tommy Shaw ever showed up. To those of us that have been around from the beginning, Styx has always beem known for the magical, mystical genious of Dennis Deyoung's songwriting ability.
By a reviewer (New Port Richey FL USA)
This album was a combination of everything that made Styx great. It is the best example of their combination of progressive and pop. Queen Of Spades is the greatest Dennis DeYoung penned tune of all time.
By Rich (Appleton, WI, USA)
Incredible to think that the song Pieces of Eight could be the best Stix song ever, epic, the crescendos, and the lirics deep and profound, Sing for the day, Tommy Shaw at his best.

||My ears hurt|
Other than the hits, this is one of their worst CDs. Specifically, "Lords of the Rings" is one of the worst songs I have ever heard, and I have heard some real stinkers.
