This is a classic rock/prog album of the 70's. With some great tunes, magnificent guitars and all the rest which belongs to this period of time. Probably more rock than prog, with the song "Miss America" as a good eample of rock tune. Although Styx were never considered to be a prog band, surely there are some moments on this album which sound very prog. Some say this is an art-rock.

The Grand Illusion is the seventh studio album by Styx, it was released on July 7, 1977. It launched the band to stardom, spawned the hit singles "Come Sail Away" and "Fooling Yourself", and sold over three million copies in the US (Triple Platinum). Along with Pieces of Eight, it is their best-selling album to date. The album was recorded at Paragon Recording Studios in Chicago.

The Grand Illusion & Other than being their first platinum-selling album, The Grand Illusion led Styx steadfastly into the domain of AOR rock. Built on the strengths of "Come Sail Away"'s ballad-to-rock metamorphosis, which gained them their second Top Ten hit, and on the high harmonies of newcomer Tommy Shaw throughout "Fooling Yourself," The Grand Illusion introduced Styx to the gates of commercial stardom. Fittingly, the title track "Man of Miracles" bears a resemblance to the grandiose and somewhat over-the-top delivery that informed incipient Styx sides such as the "Movement for the Common Ma. Increased national attention resulted in the combo simply outgrowing the admittedly limited distribution and promotion that Wooden Nickel could offer. They were more than ready to take their music to the next level and a potentially larger audience.
