Sehr Gutes Album, Billy Joel for Present ;-)

Tracklist:

1. Allentown
2. Laura
3. Pressure
4. Goodnight Saigon
5. She's Right On Time
6. A Room Of Our Own
7. Surprises
8. Skandinavian Skies

****
sehr DS für Joel, mit tiefpunkten seiner karriere wie Allentown oder Surprises - einziges meisterwerk dabei Goodnight Saigon, dafür noch die knappe 4*
****
Ambivalentes Gefühl:
Top-Songs wie Allentown, Pressure und Goodnight Saigon wechseln mit Okay-Titeln wie Laura, A room of our own ...

Die top-titel/Singles sind auch auf Greatest hits I + II zu haben.
****
Good album with some great tracks. 8 weeks in the UK top 100. UK#27. 17,700 copies sold in the UK.

*****
Das achte Studioalbum von Billy Joel erschien im Herbst 1982. Nachdem das Vorgängeralbum 'Glass Houses' dem 'Rock'n'Roll' Tribut zollte, war dieses Werk doch sehr beeinflusst von der Musik der Beatles, insbesondere von John Lennon. Dies zeigt sich am deutlichsten in den Songs 'Laura' und 'Surprises'. Aber auch 'Scandinavian Skies' mit 'I Am The Walrus'-Reminiszenz und das bedächtigte 'Where's The Orchestra' erinnern an die Flowerpower-Psychedelic-Phase der Fab Four. Der beste Song ist jedoch für mich der zynische ergreifende Anti-Vietnamkriegs-Song 'Goodnight Saigon'. Auch sehr gut die erste Single 'Pressure' mit fast wütendem Gesang und von New Wave geprägtem Keyboardsspiel, sowie das melodiös-pop-ige 'She's Right On Time'. Dagegen fallen die restlichen Songs wie die doch etwas belanglose zweite Single 'Allentown' oder das rockigere 'A Room Of Our Own' etwas ab.
Das Album erreichte #27 in UK, #7 in USA und #34 in D. Als Singles wurden ausgekoppelt 'Pressure' #20, 'Allentown' #17 und 'Goodnight Saigon' #56 in USA.
Fazit: ein gutes, interessantes Billy Joel-Album. In meiner persönlichen Rangfolge seiner bisher erschienen 12 Studio-Pop-Alben belegt es einen Platz im guten Mittelfeld.
