Edge of the Century is the twelfth studio album by Styx, released in 1990. It was the first Styx album featuring A&M solo artist Glen Burtnik, the only album to feature the Dennis DeYoung/James Young/Glen Burtnik/Chuck Panozzo/John Panozzo lineup, and the last album to feature John Panozzo on drums (he would die six years later of gastrointestinal hemorrhaging)…

2nd LP by French instrumental progressive folk outfit, blending Celtic: Bréton, Irish and other cultures. Originally untitled, it is also known as "Joe Cant's Reel" or wrongly in some catalogues as "Joe Can't Reel". This 1975 recording combines traditional Irish tunes like "Galway Bay" and "Galway Hills" with progressive folk originals by Gwendal. Fiddles, whistle, mandolin, and acoustic guitar are the main instruments, but that doesn't necessarily translate to folk or traditional playing. Gwendal exhibits a real desire to play jazz and swing on this album and frequently sets aside the conventional way of performing folk music in favor of the esoteric. "Galway Bay" might be the first bagpipe (cornemuse) tune put to a funk arrangement, and "Douze Degrees" boasts some wailing free jazz saxophone by Youenn Leberre.

Esoteric have produced a remarkable transfer that preserves beautifully the hall sound, spatial information and detail. The brass and mass strings have excellent detail, revealing a lot of subtle harmonies and variation – a boon for anything Wagner. This contributes to an overall impression of sophistication and restraint and goes perfectly with Karajan's Wagner.
