Just how persuasive had Billy Joel’s songs become by the late ’70s? The infallible vocal melody on the keyboard-driven “My Life” and the barbed narrative on guitar-rocker “Big Shot” practically define American culture at the time. Tunes like “Zanzibar” and “Stiletto” skillfully blend elements of Broadway, jazz-rock, and nightclub jive, and there’s epic bittersweetness in “Rosalinda’s Eyes.” The soaring balladry of “Until the Night” would do The Righteous Brothers proud, but it’s the title-song finale that brings this Phil Ramone-produced beauty full circle.

52nd Street

This is my all time favorite! When this came out in Oct of 1978 I was a High School senior on Long Island NY. We would drive around listening to this over and over again. Whenever I hear songs from this albumn it takes me back to a great time in my life.

One of those no-filler albums

I'm not a huge Billy Joel fan, but this album is excellent. Not one bad song in the bunch - it's rare (at least for me) to find an album that you can listen from start to finish. People will recognize the song My Life from the TV show Busom Buddies. Other stand outs are Big Shot, Rosalinda's Eyes and my personal favorite, Stiletto (which has been sampled in a few hip hop tunes)
