My updated Styx mp3 CD for the car (which gets up to 700 MB) has all of the new album except for Trouble at the Big Show.

I have everything from Cornerstone except for Eddie and First Time.  It's not a great album, but it's solid.  Boat on a River and Love in the Midnight are great songs.
I really like Cornerstone.  It sort of stands alone as a styx album, but for me, in a good way.

Yea it stands alone in a corner, shunned by Grand Illusion and Equinox. :laughing yellow guy:

A few months on, and 100+ new releases bought and listened to, The Mission is still my favourite release of the year, alongside the GORGEOUS Adios Senor Pussycat by Michael Head & The Red Elastic Band.

Equinox to Pieces of Eight is my fav run of Styx records.

That was when i feel Styx found their footing.  Add Shaw on Crystal Ball and they couldn't loose.

Yea Crystal Ball - the album not the song - was kind of weak. But yea, that run is my favorite as well.

I agree. Curulewski was decent, but he didn't give them that extra dimension they needed. Equinox was a strong statement from them pre-Shaw, but after he came in things just took off.

Also have to admit to being a little bit of a Shaw fanboi, as he hails from my general neck of the woods. Had the good fortune of seeing Styx a few years ago in Montgomery AL, Tommy's old backyard.

Crystal Ball is arguably my favorite Styx album. Replace Shooz with something a little less hokey and it would be inarguably my favorite.
