I agree with you except I don't believe the current members of Styx are having problems writing songs. I mean look at that arsenal of writers! Gowen writes decent songs, Tommy Shaw is a master songwriter, Burtnik is an extrememly talented writer! And James Young.....well..uh..uh..I think he wrote his name once. No wait a minute, I do seem to recall he wrote the same song twice, "Miss America" and "Half Penny, Two Penny". They have the exact same guitar riff! I will never understand how such a mediocre talent gets to be in the same band with such megatalents as Shaw and Burtnik. Dennis should have gotten rid of him back in the early 80's when he had complete control of the band.

Anyway, with such great songwriters in the band, they cannot even collectively make up for Dennis' songs not being on the next Styx album. I am not saying they won't write good songs, because I am sure they probably will, I am just saying no matter how good it is, it will not be a true Styx record without Dennis' ballads and Dennis' voice and Dennis's production skills. It can only be just a shell of what once was.
