Presenting radio with one of the best rock ballads ever, Cornerstone gave Chicago's Styx their big break with the number one single Babe, which held that spot for two weeks in October of 1979. While this single helped the album climb all the way to the number two spot on the charts, the rest of the tracks from Cornerstone weren't nearly half as strong. On Oct. 19, 1979, Styx laid down the Cornerstone for what they hoped would be a brand new phase in a career that had already been underway for nearly a decade. In doing so, they took the calculated risk of simplifying their oft-times highbrow material with pop-rock ingredients. This caused consternation among some die-hard fans, but it also led to the embrace of countless new ones. Cornerstone wouldnt solve that pesky little conundrum, but it would allow Styxs stalwart cadre of songwriter-vocalists - Dennis DeYoung , Tommy Shaw and James JY Young - an opportunity to stretch their songwriting talents and test the possibilities of mainstream radio.
