I put this album in the dust for a while... I regret doing that, I just didn't relieze how brillant this album was till just two weeks ago. This album can be compared to his previous works easily, 52 street and The Stranger, but I'm not going to say whick is better. Billy Joel's album is a great work of music, I would like to call this a classic, it's a forget classic. It's just like his early works, it's underrate and should have received more light and less of the darkness.
The album's "Where is the Orchestria" is what got me to indulged into this album more. The others such as "Pressure" and "Allentown" are great works as well. I sympathize with "Allentown" because I don't like change myself. I never did, and probably never will. I dislike the change in popularity of music, now a days, you click a mouse to get the music you want. Music shouldn't be treated that why. Some people hate change, and "Allentown" demonstrates the very well.
To recap, what I said, this is a masterpiece.
