    Favorite Billy Joel Album

    What's everyone's favorite album by Billy Joel?
    If I had to pick I would say 52nd Street is my favorite.

    Hm...I'd say The Stranger is my favorite Billy Joel album.

    nahhhh... turnstiles. I'm a good New Yorker. :)

    though 52nd street would have to come second. then nylon curtain.

    there's something incredibly pleasant about cold spring harbor, but... I know it's like candy. sweet, no substance. but fun.

  • I'm a fan of the Millenium Concert album only because there are some interesting things thrown into the mix (IE Honky Tonk Woman cover and Night of a Thousand Dances in the middle of River of Dreams). But album wise my favorite two are: Songs in the Attic and River of Dreams.

    river of dreams? oh, man... why did you choose it? I always felt like it was a lot of canned post-80's un-billy formula pop. He's at his best when he's doing his jazz-rock fusion thang...

    I like River of Dreams, though. Yeah, I don't think it was among his best ever or anything either, but it still has some songs I love (e.g. "All About Soul," "River of Dreams," "Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel)"). Plus, it has the sentimental value of being his last studio album before he turned to classical composing. And for me it has the extra sentimental value of being the first Billy Joel album I ever bought.

    Three songs: Blonde Over Blue, Two Thousand Years, and Lullabye

    Here's the thing about all about soul: it sounds good, I just wish the lyrics were better. 'as hard as the rock in that old rock and roll' is just so... cheezy.

    I'll concede that 2000 years and Last Words are really good songs. They're just not as original as his earlier work. But I guess that's true about almost every artist.

  • Billy's Best

    The best album?

    Glass Houses-Have loved it since it was released
    52nd Street-Have loved it since it was released
    The Stranger-Have loved it since it was released
    Storm Front-Like it
    The Bridge-Just recently discovered, love it
    Piano Man-Have loved it since 1976. Special to me because I was 9 years old when I bought it. It was my first single-artist album.
    I just can't do it-pick a favorite. Each album is so different, and each has it's GREAT tracks.

    Okay, I think I'll go with 52nd Street.

    River of Dreams. All About Soul, Two Thousand Years, Famous Last Words... basically every song on that album is great.

  • Cold Spring Harbor & Piano Man

    The Stranger, but I also like An Innocent Man very much. Other favourites would be Storm Front (yes, indeed!), The Nylon Curtain and River of Dreams.

    Eek.

    Well, my first thought was "Easy, Glass Houses. Of course."

    But thinking about it, I also adore An Innocent Man...

    Turnstiles

  • Thats a hard question!

    I would have to say his most brilliant album was The Stranger. But my favorite album is Songs In The Attic & The Nylon Curton. Then Storm Front! I guess i cant pick one.

  • I've always loved Billy Joel, but I only had The Complete Hits Collection 1973-1997 Limited Edition. Just recently I've been starting to get his studio and live albums. In the last week I've bought:

    Glass Houses
    12 Gardens Live
    Songs in the Attic
    Piano Man
    52nd Street
    KOHUEPT

    Payday is on Thursday, so that means more Billy and Elton discs. It's too hard to pick a favorite right now, but I guess I'll go with...Glass Houses.

    Turnstiles for sure. Though 52nd Street is a close 2nd.
