******
ganz toll
******
einer seiner besten
******
billy at his best
****
Weniger überzeugend.
******
The entertainer...das ist er wirklich, gefällt mir ausgezeichnet

guter Song
****
Der Song hat was nervöses an sich. Der einlullend-träumerische Charakter, welcher seine übrigen Frühwerke prägt, dringt hier nicht durch.
***
Durchschnitlicher song..... am ende nervt er schon.... knapp kein 4 !..... und wer es noch nicht gewüsst hat am ende.... "I'm The Entertainer" !
**
schlecht, er hat wesentlich Besseres
****
er ist ein entertainer...Us #34 - genug dafür!
****
He had some more entertaining songs, aber alles in allem ne solide 4.
*****
Da wächst Billy Joel förmlich über sich hinaus. Starkes Frühwerk mit hübschen Synthi-Spielereien.
****
da weiss ich jetzt wirklich nicht was ich davon halten soll...ein bunter strauss verschiedenster stile...ich meine sogar ein banjo herauszuhören...
******
Ende 1974 sein dritter, wenn auch bescheidener Hit in der amerikanischen Hitparade. "The Entertainer" gefällt mir um einiges besser als viele seiner ganz großen Hits.
******
Auch mir gefallen die von Lark ins Spiel gebrachten Synthiespielereien hier besonders gut. Ganz grundsätzlich ist das meines Erachtens eines der geilsten Arrangements in der schmucken Discographie Billy Joels. Die eingängige Melodie, die Durchgang für Durchgang noch ein Spürchen bombastischer instrumentiert zur Präsentation gelangt, ist das Herzstück eines Easy-Listening-Krachers, den ich zu Billy Joels besten Songs zähle. Meine Höchstwertung könnte nicht klarer sein. Ich schätze "entertainers, that come to do their shows".
****
schoene Nummer.
******
grandios
****
... gut ...
*****
Muy buena.
***
Peaked at #89 in Australia, 1976.
*****
Textlich eine zynische, wohl teilweise autobiografische Abrechnung mit dem ganzen Musikbusiness, musikalisch sehr gut umgesetzt.
****
this is pretty catchy! i like it!
****
spezielles Stück aus 1974: zum einen moderne Synthi-Spielereien, zum anderen traditionelle Countryrock-Elemente – gut – 4+…
*****
...exakt, das bist du und dazu noch ein guter...
****
... knapp noch gut ...
****
Toll produziert, die Melodie ist aber nur knapp gut. 4-
****
4* sind noch drin
*****
5 Sterne kann ich gutmachen.

...starke fünf für den grossen Entertainer...
*****
sehr gut

CDN: #30, 1974
USA: #34, 1974
****
Trägt fast schon leicht autobiographische Züge....

4 +
****
Fängt stark an, aber irgendwie wiederholt sich die Melodie immer und es fehlt ein richtiges Highlight! Trotzdem "entertaint" die Nummer ganz ordentlich, knapp keine 5 für mich!
****

Diese Single ist im Mittelfeld von den Billy Songs anzutreffen.
