In July 1977, Styx went from being a successful, prog-rock act to becoming one of the biggest rock bands in America with the release of their seventh studio album, The Grand Illusion.

Armed with epic power ballads and their signature prog-rock flourishes, the LP would eventually go triple platinum – becoming the first of four consecutive triple platinum efforts, thanks in part to the explosive success of all-time classic single, "Come Sail Away." As a prog-rock outfit, they were no strangers to concept albums, but The Grand Illusion traded in fantastical settings for a more existential theme, dealing with finding meaning within a dominant consumerist society. Their musical critique also took aim at pageant culture on, "Miss America," to feelings of alienation from their growing fame on, "Man In The Wilderness." The Grand Illusion captured the band at both their creative and commercial peak.
