REVIEWS

******
ganz starkes Joel-Album
******
...super...
****
Guter Durchschnitt.
*****
Da bin ich dazwischen. Ärgerte mich damals, dass das zwar in Deutschland in den Top 10 war (wenn ich nicht irre), aber bei uns nur eine Woche auf Platz 30. Massiv unterplatziert sozusagen. Besonders "And so it goes", "Leningrad" und "We didn't start the fire" finde ich sehr gut.
******

****
Bis auf das überragende "Leningrad" beinhaltet sein 11. Studioalbum nur wenige Glanzpunkte (And so it goes wäre auch eines).
Textlich aber („I Go to Extremes", "We didn't start the fire") hatte er wieder starke Leistung vollbracht.
US #1

Liegt so zwischen 4* und 5*
Da ich bei den Songs meist abgerundet habe, runde ich hier auf. ;-)

Higlights: We didn't start the fire / Leningrad
*****
solides Rock/Pop-Album
****
Die Schweizer hattens erkannt und sich nicht von den beiden starken Singles blenden lassen, denn das Album beinhaltet einiges an nervigem Gedudel (That's Not Her Style, Storm Front). Eine solide 4 reicht völlig aus.
*****
Sehr gut!
****
Leider ist dieses Album für Billy Joel nur Durchschnitt. Das danach noch folgende letzte Studioalbum 'River Of Dreams'-Album setzte den Trend nach unten fort. Neben tollen Liedern wie die Balladen 'Leningrad' und 'The Downeaster Alexa' und sehr gute Uptempo-Nummern wie 'I Go To Extremes', gibt es auch leider Füllmaterial (When In Rome, Storm Front). An Alben wie 'The Stranger' oder '52nd Street' kann sich diese Scheibe nicht messen.
*****
Kolossales Joel-Album (5+), geprägt vom Wandel in Osteuropa. Nur ein paar marginale Schwächen verhindern ganz knapp die Höchstnote.
******
Das beste Album des "Piano Man", die Songs "We Didn't Start The Fire" und "Leningrad" sind noch heute Hits.
******
Das 1.Album, das nicht von Phil Ramone produziert war, sondern vom Foreigner-Mastermind Mick Jones.
Sein größter kommerzieller Erfolg in Deutschland.
.. für mich gibt's keine Ausfälle.
Mit Leningrad und We didn't start the fire sind noch 2 Hammersongs drauf.
****
This album is great and full of memorable songs. 5th UK top ten album. 25 weeks in the UK top 100. UK#5. 300,000 copies sold in the UK.

Gutes Album (4,10)

Das Album offenbart kaum Schwächen, das Meiste klingt ganz gefällig. Allerdings finde ich auch nur 2 Songs überragend und zwar "I go to extremes" und "Leningrad". Hingegen nervt mich "We didn't start the fire" mittlerweile doch etwas. Starke, wenn auch teils etwas pathetische Lyrics bei den meisten Songs.

Album-Bilanz: 3 starke, 6 durchschnittliche Songs und lediglich 1 schwächerer Track.

*****
Da hat Billy Joel kurz vor Toresschluss noch seinen wohlverdienten Platz in der Liste "Wichtige Alben der 1980er Jahre" gesichert. Stark und ohne Ausfälle!
*****
Ein tolles Album.
*****
Eines der wichtigsten Alben jener Dekade (1989 ediert). Hat einige Hits, die auf jeden Fall wichtige Fußnoten seiner bemerkenswerten Karriere sind, zu bieten. Daher runde ich doch mal auf.
