Billy Joel's fifth album, and quite possibly his most popular and best selling, featuring "Just The Way You Are", "Scenes From An Italian Restaurant" and "She's Always A Woman" - there is a "hidden" track at the end of Side 2 which is basically a whistled reprise of "The Stranger." The recording level is a bit low the amp needs to be turned up a notch.

Don't get fooled with the "mastersound" crap of this pressing, the whole album is on the border of an ugly distortion so buy another pressing instead.

Excellent re-issue. As usual, MOV nailed it. Sounds great. Dead quiet vinyl.

Picked up my copy for $3 at a record show. Sonically, it's one of the highest quality records I have now. Top notch mastering, great pressing. Great to listen to on vinyl. Would've loved to have been in the studio. Can't believe what the engineers and musicians were able to pull off with analog gear back then.

This is one of the best albums of that era. Billy Joel captures "real life" in this record at a time when a lot of music was very superficial. Just a great all-aroud listen to lyrically and arrangement of music.

Just bought a copy at FYE. I looked at this one before I bought it and saw Ray Janos worked on it, so it was an instant buy. I've had decent luck with picture discs lately. Havent played it yet. I will post a follow up.

Excellent mastering. 45 rpm is the only way to go. Sadly, Side 3 on my copy is pressed off-center.
