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). Some estimates have the album at over 5 million copies sold. The album was recorded at Paragon Recording Studios in Chicago. The album cover art, created by Alton Kelley and Stanley Mouse, is an homage to a painting by René Magritte entitled "Le Blanc-Seing".

Welcome to the grand illusion Come on in and see what's happening Pay the price, get your tickets for the show The stage is set, the band starts playing Suddenly your heart is pounding Wishing secretly you were a star. But don't be fooled by the radio The tv or the. magazines They show you photographs of how your life should be But they're just someone else's fantasy So if you think your life is complete confusion Because you never win the game Just remember that it's a grand illusion And deep inside we're all the same. Наверное, известнейший представитель pomp art rock'а, альбом The Grand Illusion группы Styx. Альбом, который нравится от самого начала до самого конца. Впервые я узнал об этой группе, услышав их песню Come Sail Away, которая надолго засела в голове и заставила меня познакомится с творчеством американцев поближе.

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.
