About Crystal Ball album. Album Crystal Ball (1976). Label A&M Records. Bob Jastrzembski, John Schaeffer.

Crystal Ball is the sixth album by Styx, released in 1976. 1976 studio album by Styx.

Crystal Ball was the first album with Tommy Shaw in the band and he contributes the very good title track. The title track is among the best songs and it is a nice semi-ballad with softer acoustic verses and a harder rocking chorus. This song also remind me slightly of Rainbow, but this time it is more in line with the good era of that band (. the Ronnie James Dio-era). Album number six, which was issued in '76 during the sixth year of Styx's professional career, 'Crystal Ball' continues the upward curve witnessed on the previous years 'Equinox', though quite what the number six has to do with this American prog-rock outfit is anybody's guess.
