Album Review

Styx was only a year in the grave before lead singer Dennis DeYoung ventured out on his own with his solo debut, Desert Moon. The solo record does not represent a significant stylistic departure from Styx's brand of pop/rock, although the emphasis is heavier on the pop and not as heavy on the rock. DeYoung continues his gut-busting vocal strategy, belting out his notes. The singer also supplies the keyboards, of which there are plenty -- this is a mid-'80s record, after all. Tom Dziallo handles the wailing electric guitars and arranged the cover of Jimi Hendrix's "Fire." The album yielded a Top Ten hit in "Desert Moon."
