I am a Styx fan before I am a Dennis DeYoung fan, but I to this day love Dennis' voice. I especially enjoy this first solo album of his as a fantastic slice of pop/rock. After having it on cassette for years, I was very pleased to see it finally available on CD.
Now obviously, I love the top 10 hit title track. For sure, that beautiful song showcases Dennis' emotional, melodic, soulful vocals at their best. However, I also love the catchy opener "Don't Wait For Heros", one of only a handful of rocking DDY solo songs. "Fire" is a bluesy delight, while "Gravity" is a mystical slice of pop. Even the ridiculously goofy "Boys Will Be Boys", which is kind of a rocker of sorts, is a lot of fun to listen to. The closing track "Dear Darling" is a very sweet ballad to close the album.
Don't expect a hard rock album with this effort, because it's not that at all. What you have here is a melodic pop/rock delight that is already well outside of the Styx realm. While later DDY solo efforts probably mellow out too much overall, this one still has some kick in places. Call my overall grade 4 1/2 stars, as it falls a bit short of most of the best Styx efforts. Still well worth a listen for fans of that golden voice.

This is, as stated by the title somewhat, a great album. I am a HUGE Styx fan (by one of Dennis's Styx songs, Come Sail Away), and in trying to expand my horizons a bit and getting the various members solo stuff, got this (actually on LP, need to get it on CD). I already knew Don't Wait For Heroes and Desert Moon, and just loved those songs, Desert Moon is very pretty and Don't Wait For Heroes is inspirational. Fire is an interesting redition of Jimi Hendrix's Fire; not bad, but definately different. Please reminds me of something out of Grease or something like that, but it's cool, features Dennis in a duet with Dawn Marie Fuesi(sp). Suspecious is kind of dark, not really, interesting content and pretty well stated. And I have recently discovered Gravity, which is a very awesome song, probably my third favorite on there. It has an appropiate, light music. Dear Darling is basically a typical Dennis song (not a bad thing, mind), very nice ballad. I definately recommend this.

The voice, keyboardist, arranger, producer and heart and soul of Styx has produced an outstanding solo effort with Desert Moon. The title track is an almost perfect song. Beautiful, haunting and sung to perfection. "Gravity" is a lively, funny, inspired ode to inaction. He is in fine voice throughout and his keyboard work is, as always, masterful. If you liked the work Dennis DeYoung did with Styx, then this CD is a MUST purchase.

I was a huge Styx fan, and when they went their separate ways in 1984, I snapped up this album figuring it would just be a quick fix to tide me over until the boys worked out their differences.
I couldn't have been more wrong. This is a fantastic album on its own, showing off Dennis DeYoung's extraordinary musical range. Dennis DeYoung's rich vocals and keyboards were often the best things about some of Styx's songs, and this album takes the best of those and puts them on display. There's not a bad track on the disk, and my only complaint is that there are too few of them! "Desert Moon" is a beautiful and moody song that invokes great visuals through its lyrics ("The waiter poured our memories into tiny cups..."); "Don't Wait For Heroes" is inspirational and fun; "Fire" is a bluesy remake of the Jimi Hendrix original (and yes, it does indeed hold its own); "Dear Darling (I'll Be There)" closes the album with a typical (and typically brilliant) DeYoung rich ballad.
If you liked Styx and this album isn't yet part of your collection, what are you waiting for? Get it now!

Dennis DeYoung, co-founder of the immensely popular group Styx, produced this excellent CD after the band broke up in 1984. Each song on this disc is classic Dennis DeYoung. From such ballads as "Dear Darling" and the hugely popular title track to the more up-tempo "Please" and "Boys Will Be Boys", Dennis left his trademark keyboards and multi-octave voice as a signature for the listener. The back-up band is very good as well. I wish there would have been more songs on the CD, but all of them are very good. Styx fans as well as Dennis DeYoung fans will surely enjoy his first solo effort. It is worth playing many times over.
