Hello Susumu!

Just one Styx album? That's a tough one.

There are a few "close seconds", but for my money the best album, period, is Cornerstone. There are many reasons why two of the songs on Cornerstone are Styx's most commercially successful songs (Babe, in the US, Boat on the River, in Europe).

Cornerstone, in my humble opinion, has no weak tracks. It showcases Styx as a versatile band at one time leaning toward electronica ands at other times going accoustical (imagine the autoharp alongside the accordion!)

Then add layered harmonies, thoughtful lyrics, and tight production. Cornerstone is Styx at its best. No doubt.

Thanks for asking,


Stan

(that was fun)
