it might sound out of context, but, Billy has always been a devoted beatle fan, and during the recording of this album, you can clearly see their inspiration....the melodies, the sounds, it just reminds youy the beatles. No wonder why people think this is one (if not) his best album, not only because it has the beatle sound, Billy has his merits, certainly, he added his genius, which combined with the before mentioned inspiration, gave us the best Billy Joel music. I will let somebody else to write about the music........

Supposedly this album was made while Joel was doing alot of cocaine. I guess this shows on some of the music and lyrics. Obviously there is a heavy Lennon influence on alot of songs. Laura is a total Lennon song with the Plastic Ono Band drum beat and John sounding vocal. Scandinavian Skies has the string section right off a Beatles song and that vocal sounds exactly like Lennons on Good Moring Good Morning. Even after Innocent Man came out Joel said this was still his favorite album. Other great tracks are Surprises, Alllentown,Goodnight saigon, and shes right on time. This album really was the pinnacle of growth for Billy Joel and he never topped it.

After listening to this album for a while, I have to say my favourite three tracks are
1. She's right on time - Just wonderful, sounds like a Fortunes song fromt he 60's btu rocks
2. A room of our own - Rocks, it reminds me of "She's a woman" by the Beatles
3. Surprises - I find it fun to listen to.
I'm actually no fan of the Beatles, though I like their early works [63-64]. But I also like Scandanavian skies. Actually, there's a line in it "The tour of Germany was bleeding into our eyes" and I cringe when I hear it, I find it unpleasant but aside from that the song is so weird and out there that it really works. Where's the orchestra is a pretty little ballad that I quite like. The first four tracks I didn't find to be that much fun, but "Goodnight Saigon" is a beautiful anthem, and Allentown is good enough to be great.

Back during the fall of 1982, I fell ill for several months and had to miss a lot of school. A lot of time was spent in front of the t.v. watching music videos on MTV - during its heyday of the early 1980s. Among the videos that were the most compelling at the time was the "Pressure" video...the video itself was really good, but the song was even better. The same went for "Allentown" whose video was in heavy rotation on MTV during those days. It should come as no surprise that as soon as I was better, I went out and purchased this album...I'm not sure, but this may have been the first album I ever bought that wasn't either The Beatles or Simon & Garfunkel.
The thing that I like most about this album, is its Beatlesque sound (on a lot of the songs at least). Songs that sound heavily influenced by the Fab Four are "Laura" (Beatlesque harmonies), "Surprises", and "Scandinavian Skies" - both sound like they could have been written and sung by John Lennon - the second of these two reminds this listener of "I Am The Walrus" with its instrumentation which leans heavily on the cello. These are all excellent songs.
Other favorites (and not necessarily Beatlesque in nature) are "Allentown" which is extremely catchy and puts into song the plight of rust-belt workers. "Pressure", which was the other big hit from this album conveys a frenzied urgency extremely well - as one would expect from the song title. "She's Just In Time" is a really nice upbeat song and "A Room Of Our Own" catchily exclaims the need for some separation in a relationship...this song has a great groove to it and, to put the icing on the cake, has an awesome electric piano solo...
