Grand Illusion Album Art Design
Black Styx Shirt
With Grand Illusion, their seventh studio album, Styx found breakthrough commercial success on the back of the hit singles“Come Sail Away” and“Fooling Yourself(The Angry Young Man).” The Chicago band had spent the decade up to that point cementing itself in the prog-rock scene, harmonically balancing commercial hard rock with synthesizers and experimental instrumentation.
Grand Illusion’s album artwork was painted by the psychedelic artists Alton Kelley and Stanley Mouse, who had also worked with the Grateful Dead and Journey. The painting was inspired by a René Magritte piece called“Le Blanc-Seing,” and matches the band’s own fantastical lyric flourishes as well as its title.
