''Edge of the Century'' is an album by Styx, released in 1990 (see 1990 in music). It was the first Styx album featuring A&M solo artist Glen Burtnik on guitar, and the only album to feature the Dennis DeYoung/James Young/Glen Burtnik/Chuck Panozzo/John Panozzo lineup.

It spawned three singles. "Show Me the Way" was written by DeYoung and peaked at #3, due to the Gulf War Troops adopting the song as an anthem. Some radio stations played an edited version with the children of troops singing. "Love Is the Ritual", written by Burtnik and Plinky, and "Love at First Sight", written by Burtnik, DeYoung, and Young, were also released as singles, but neither garnered the same amount of success as "Show Me the Way."

The album was a certified GOLD record by the RIAA. - Wikipedia
