Perfect from start to finish - it has some of the best classic billy joel songs like The Stranger, Just The Way You Are, Scenes From An Italian Restaurant, Movin' Out, She's Always A Woman and Only The Good Die Young
I Never get tired of listening to it all the way through all day long. Like Billy Joel's Own Version Of Abbey Road. - Beatlesboy9

The Stranger is best, but I should get this Billy's 2nd best album higher! - Raccoon97
Great jazz album. My favorite songs are Rosalinda's Eyes, Zanzibar, Stiletto and Honesty...
Second only to The Stranger and Glass Houses comes third.
Rosalinda's Eyes. Such a good song and a great album. - LizardKing99V 1 Comment
I think of this as Billy Joel's Revolver or Hunky Dory--somewhat overshadowed by the classic it preceded, but every bit as good. - PetSounds
Miami 2017 (Seen the Lights Go Out On Broadway) on the album is one of the most underappreciated songs of all time!V 1 Comment
An amazing album, and definitely his best album. Billy joel literally became famous with this album. From up-beat songs like "Worst comes to worst", and "Ain't no crime", to Billy Joel classics like "The Ballad Of Billy The Kid", "Captain Jack", and of course, his greatest song of all time, "Piano Man". Billy Joel wrote this album when he was down on his luck, and working at a piano bar. He changed his career with this album. Deserves #1 spot for sure! A top three: Piano man, The Stranger, and 52nd Street. - The_Acid_Queen
If you only had one album on a desert island - this is it!
Such as such apeear's. Therefore, such is such.
Goodnight Saigon. Laura. Need I say anymore?
Think this album is the best?
You may be right
Although most people say The Stranger is their favourite, this one was actually his highest ranked back when it originally came out.
I think this album gets way too much hate than it deserves, even by Billy Joel himself. Yes, it sounds a bit odd, but this album includes classics and fan favourites like "She's Got A Way" or "Everybody Loves You Now". Some other great songs are "You Can Make Me Free", "Why Judy Why", "You Look So Good To Me" or "Tomorrow Is Today", which he wrote off his own suicide note. The only mediocre song on this album is "Turn Around", but if you consider that "The Stranger"�'s last two songs are pretty forgettable as well, this should be up there with "The Stranger" and "52nd Street". An almost perfect little album, that ought to not be overshadowed by "Piano Man", which is actually not as good in my opinion.
