da schliess ich mich dir an, auch wenn ich "Storm front" noch besser find
*****
starkes Album. Knapp an der 6 vorbei
*****
Super Album von Billy Joel! 6 Single-Auskopplungen bringt selten wer zustande, vom Anfang bis Ende gute Stimmung. Anscheinend war er hier auf dem 50/60er Jahre Trip, denn nahezu jeder Song erinnert daran..however, ein must have für eine gute Plattensammlung, zumindest wer Anspruch auf qualitativ hochwertiges legt..

Alles bereits gesagt, wahrlich ein starkes Album des Meisters. Neben "52nd Street", "Glass Houses" und "Storm Front" eines seiner besten Werke.
****
hatte ich mal...gefiel mir ganz gut...erinnerungsbonus
******
Billy Joel ist in meinen Augen ein Musik-Gott und diese geile Platte ist eindeutig sein Meisterwerk. Das Retro-Feeling zieht sich wie ein roter Faden durch die Songs und sorgt für einige nostalgisch-magische Momente. Neben der Single "Tell Her About It", hat es mir vorallem der wunderschöne Titeltrack angetan. Klare 6!
*****
Auch ich bin ein BJ-Jünger und mag genau dieses Retro-Feeling dieses Albums nicht.
Aber mit "Innocent man" ist mein Lieblingssong von ihm drauf.
*****
One of Billy's best albums.
Peaking at #3 in Australia, 1983.
*****
"Uptown Girl" mag ich nicht, fast alles andere umso mehr.
*****
Zwei beschwingte Hits (Uptown Girl, Tell Her About It), einer seiner allerbesten Songs (Christie Lee) und viel an der Nerv-Kitsch-Grenze balancierendes Material. Da das meiste davon aber die Balance noch knapp halten kann, gibts knappe 5* für dieses Album - im BJ-Mittelfeld.
****
This is one of his best and this or Storm Front is my favourite album by him. The album produced one UK#1 single. 3rd UK top ten album. 97 weeks in the UK top 100. UK#2. 1.1 million copies sold in the UK.

Während sich Billy Joel auf dem Vorgänger-Album 'The Nylon Curtain' u.a. an der Musik der späteren Beatles orientierte, katapultierte er sich bei 'An Innocent Man' noch weiter 'back in time' in die End 50er- / Anfang 60er Jahre. Das Spektrum der Songs reicht vom Rock'n'Roll ('Christie Lee') über Doo Wop ('The Longest Time') und einer Four Seasons-Remiszenz ('Uptown Girl').bis zum legendären Motown-Soul ('Tell Her About It'). Meine Lieblingssongs auf dem Album sind aber zwei eher ruhigere Stücke, nämlich das besinnliche 'This Night', das im Refrain Beethoven's Klaviersonate Nr. 8 zitiert, sowie der hübsche Titelsong. Zu erwähnen ist auch das groovige, nicht nur wegen der Mundharmonika an Stevie Wonder erinnernde, 'Leave A Tender Moment Alone'.
Muss gestehen, dass ich das Album einfach jahrelang unterschätzt hatte. Auch wenn es von so brillianten LPs wie 'The Stranger' oder '52nd Street' ein wenig entfernt ist, so habe ich es die letzten Jahre doch so richtig lieb gewonnen.
Bewertung: glatte 5*.
Höchstplatzierung in Album-Charts: UK #2, USA #4, D #36.
*****
Heel sterk album van Billy Joel, uitgebracht in het jaar 1983. Bekendste nummer is misschien wel zijn "Uptown Girl", maar het album bevat nog tal van muzikale hoogstandjes.

1. Easy Money: 4
2. An Innocent Man: 4+
3. The Longest Time: 4+
4. This Night: 5
5. Tell Her About It: 5
6. Uptown Girl: 5
7. Careless Talk: 4
8. Christie Lee: 4+
9. Leave A Tender Moment Alone: 5
10. Keeping The Faith: 4+
