Pieces of Eight was a concept I had after we finally made it we were so successful in a 12-month period financially that it was about what happens with your friends, and what is this thing about money, what is this pursuit of money DeYoung recalled in an episode of In the Studio. Pieces of Eight was a hit, reaching No. 6 on the Billboard album chart. For the first time, Shaw had all of the hit singles from the album Blue Collar Man reached No. 21, and Renegade went all the way to No. Both songs would go on to be staples of Styx's live set for the rest of their career. Predictably, critics were less enthusiastic. Pieces of Eight. Released September 1, 1978. Pieces of Eight Tracklist. Great White Hope 's feisty, straightforward brand of album rock is represented best by Blue Collar Man from 1978's Pieces of Eight, an invigorating keyboard and guitar rush - hard and heavy, yet curved by Tommy Shaw's emphasized vocals. Reaching number 21, with the frolicking romp of Renegade edging in at number 16 only six months later, Pieces of Eight maintained their strength as a front-running FM radio group. Even though these two tracks were both mainstream singles, the rest of the album includes tracks that rekindle some of Styx's early progressive rock so.

Il faut dire que Styx a eu un démarrage difficile, une croissance contrariée qui ne s'est solutionnée qu'à l'arrivée du remplaçant du guitaristeco-lead vocaliste John Curulewski, Tommy Shaw. Avec cette nouvelle recrue et un sixième album sous la ceinture, Crystal Ball 1976, la formation était fin prête à conquérir les masses. Et donc, deux ans et deux albums plus tard sort Pieces of Eight qui, en substance, continue de creuser la formule établie depuis deux albums et surtout le triomphal The Grand Illusion 1977, une bonne idée.
