Mobile Fidelity version is quite good. I think the only problem I had was probably a studio set up thing. The Drums didn't quite have the impact I was hoping for but shouldn't stop you from checking this out everything else is very good. Quiet vinyl and warm full sound.

I had the album and heard some of his music and wanted it on CD format. I knew that I would love it.

Cant go wrong with this SACD version of one of Billys best(The Stranger,Nylon Curtain,Glass Houses as well.) Nothing compares to a well done SACD in multichannel.And this one is up there with Floyds Dark Side and Joels own again The Stranger.Both of which sound magnificent and almost like hearing them for the 1st time in this SACD form.Cant rave enough about the sound out of these things.Instruments divided amongst the channels perfectly,and Billy singing right in the centre speaker like he was standing in front of you! Those responsible for remixing the SACDs coming out lately should be congratulated!Got to have the right system etc. before buying this gem though.As it will only play on an SACD player or something that can play an SACD(some DVD players) and is not a Hybrid SACD.You must have the right system to recieve the correct sound, via right hook up thru Reciever multi-in. Great 5.1 sound.Cant beat it.Cheers.

I was given '52nd Street' for my 15th birthday along with Breakfast in America by Supertramp (1979). It was many years before I discovered "The Stranger". I just read the main review here and found that my two favorite tracks are the same songs that Mr. Blackstock has trashed in his 'critical review'. Hogwash!
If you liked the power and frustration of "Captain Jack", then you'll most likely enjoy the harder-edged tracks on this album like "Stiletto", "Zanzibar" (my two faves), and "Big Shot". Joel is as much a macho guy from the City as he is a romantic songwriter. "Honesty" and "Rosalinda's Eyes" are fine examples of his tender side.

Not a bad SACD by any means, and definitely superior to the CD version, "52nd Street" on SACD still isn't as good as its predecessor. It's still easy to use and fun to play with though. As for the music itself...
After the mega-hit "The Stranger", which spawned hit after hit, Billy Joel released "52nd Street". It's a solid album, and essential for fans of the Piano Man, even if it's not quite up to the standards he raised for himself with "The Stranger".
The album opens with it's top three songs, "Big Shot", "Honesty", which is easily one of his most meaningful songs, and "My Life". Other standout songs include "Stiletto", "Rosalinda's Eyes", and the title track, but to be entirely honest (no pun intended) the album tends to taper off a bit after an incredible start. (hence 4 stars and not 5)
Still, a B+ album from Billy Joel is still going to contain some great music, and "52nd Street" is no exception. There's more here than music for die hard fans, and the Piano Man continues to please.

Just like the man himself, "52nd Street" is obnoxious and overambitious but thoroughly lovable. After "The Stranger" found Billy flirting with the dark side of AM radio, he went after a streetwise blues & jazz sound with "52nd Street." He found it, sometimes.
But even when he missed and overshot, he created some great, lasting music. "Stiletto" has an irresistible groove and some impressive hellcat piano work, while "Rosalinda's Eyes" and "Half a Mile Away" find him approaching a maturity that carries his angry-young-man themes into a realistic setting. The set's centerpiece, the would-be epic "Zanzibar," is notable for its attempt to shoehorn streetwise romantic cliches into an insanely ambitious arrangement. Featuring trumpet solos by Freddie Hubbard and shifting movements, "Zanzibar" is one of the most entertaining and interesting failures you'll ever want to hear. Which means it isn't a failure at all, but a joyously ridiculous piece of music.
The album's standout, however, is the gorgeously layered "Until the Night." Billy's not the most lovey-dovey fellow, but "Until the Night" is one of the great love songs in history, a tough, unsentimental track that acknowledges how crucial it is to share love when times get difficult. The song aims high and scores even higher - it's a truly transcendent piece of work.
Hey, I'm a Billy Joel fan, so I'm gonna love most of what he does. "52nd Street" might be my favorite album of his. I'm aware that it's not perfect - but heck, who wants to hear a perfect album anyway? For all his forced tough-guy stances, for all his "I'm a white boy singing funky blues" pretense, he hit enough homers with this album to make anyone a true Billy believer.
Oh, and when I was a kid, I assumed verse two of "Zanzibar" really was about baseball.
