New wave rock was sweeping the country. Joel dipped his feet in the new wave pool on this album. Well...maybe just a toe. The song "Sometimes a Fantasy" surely has a new wave feel. Even his big hit from the album " Still Rock and Roll to me" has a new wave feel. I agree with Joel though. After all of these years it still just sounds like Rock and Roll.
I dare you to listen to this album, and not have one of these songs stuck in your head all day. Very catchy songs.
I love a few of the songs. Like a few, and only really dislike one song. The French song isn't flying with me.
I give this album 3.5 stars out of 5
