Great Dirty World by Gowan

Great Dirty World is the third studio album by Canadian musician Gowan, who is the current keyboardist and vocalist for the band Styx, originally released in 1987 on Columbia Records and reissued on May 22, 2012, on the Linus Entertainment Records label.  This album spawned three singles, Moonlight Desires (which features the background vocals of Yes former vocalist Jon Anderson), Awake the Giant, and Living in the Golden Age.  Other notable tracks are Human Drama, 60 Second Nightmare and much more.  I was quite impressed with his vocal style, his great songwriting, and performance as well as the recording of this album.  This is the first time I have heard this artist and am looking forward to hearing more from him.  This great album is available from Amazon, Discogs, and many other outlets as well as his official website where you can learn more about the artist and his music.
