CD Reviews

Probably the best CD of the late 90's...
Maria J. Cullins | New Gloucester, ME United States | 01/06/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"For the life of me I can't imagine why this CD went unnoticed when it was released. Probably because today's hit music has no substance, and that is not the case with this CD. Shaw is best known as guitarist and vocalist for Styx and Damn Yankees. While his other solo projects have left a lot to be desired, this is a great reflection of his true talent. His songs are uplifting, but never trite. He enlisted the help of Ted Nugent, Jack Blades, (Night Ranger) and Allison Krauss, and the result is an attention-getting, complex album that ranges from sounds reminiscent of Sgt. Pepper's to down-home American rock 'n' roll. Give this more than one listen before deciding. It grows on you quickly. This has become a mainstay of my CD collection, and is frequently played. In my opinion, this was easily worthy of at least a Grammy nomination, but everyone was too busy drooling over the new wave of flimsily-talented (and flimsily clad) teen aged, adolescently-minded performers. It's too bad that gems like this album were drowned out by such garbage."
My favorite CD!

"I just happened upon this little review section, although I have owned this CD since it came out.
OK, I am a diehard Tommy/Styx fan, but this CD is definately an underrated jewel! To this day I still play it on repeat. As a matter of fact, I am listening to it now.
I'll sum it up: If I were stranded on a desert island, and could only have 1 CD, this would be it!
As Tommy says, headphones are definately reccomended. This is some incredible music!"
Wow ! I will wear this cd out !

"This cd is awesome. I'm a Styx fan from way back. Unfortunatley when the band disbursed I moved on to whatever else I could find. (Nothing compares). When the "Brave New World" tour came thru Dallas I was the first one in line for tickets. Well needless to say I am once again completely hooked. The music is unsurpassed. Now on to TS. My hats off to Tommy for going the route he did on 7DZ. Why do people expect the music from a solo artist to be the same as the music from the group they also belong to. I LOVE 7DZ. The music is different from track to track and the lyrics are profound and meaningful. And it rocks ! :) TOMMY, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK !"
