Più di ogni altra cosa, Tia sogna di diventare una cantante, una la cui voce sia capace di cambiare il mondo. Il che non è affatto semplice, visto che è povera, con una mamma che si spacca la schiena lavorando in un supermercato e un papà in galera. Però la sua voce è davvero pazzesca e Tia già canta con un coro gospel in cui è una delle poche ragazze bianche. Un giorno, a pochi metri da dove il coro sta provando, viene ucciso un bambino e la verità riguardo al motivo per cui suo padre è in carcere esplode, facendo crollare il muro di silenzio che la mamma e i suoi amici hanno costruito attorno a lei. È una verità talmente scioccante che Tia non riesce più a cantare. Anche il suo sogno è morto per sempre?

A factory manager in rural Czechoslovakia bargains with the army to send men to the area, to boost the morale of his young female workers, deprived of male company since the local boys have been conscripted. The army sends reservists, mostly married middle-aged men - and the local beauty Andula, spurns those bold enough to try to win her, for the jazz pianist, newly come from Prague to perform. He seduces her and impresses her, telling her "most women are round, like guitars but you are a guitar by Picasso". Staying the night with him causes a lecture on a young woman's honour at her hostel so she throws over her other suitors and makes her way to Prague to find the young man. His protective Mamma and weary Pappa are not pleased when she arrives on the doorstep with her suitcase.

Styx's feisty, straightforward brand of album rock is represented best by "Blue Collar Man" from 1978's Pieces of Eight, an invigorating keyboard and guitar rush – hard and heavy, yet curved by Tommy Shaw's emphasized vocals. Reaching number 21, with the frolicking romp of "Renegade" edging in at number 16 only six months later, Pieces of Eight maintained their strength as a front-running FM radio group…
