Sehr gutes Album, tolle Singlehits im Jahr 1980.
Die Hit-Singles sind allesamt klasse! Besonders die UK-Only-Single "All For Leyna". Guter Mix aus Pop, leichtem Rock und New Wave. Und dazu ein großartiges Cover!
cooles cover, gute songs - er bot trotzdem besseres an..
die letzten 4 Songs hinken hinterher
Good album full of great tracks. 2nd UK top ten album. 24 weeks in the UK top 100. UK#9. 100,000 copies sold in the UK.

Mit seinem siebten Album wollte Billy Joel wohl beweisen, dass er durchaus auch als Rock'n'Roller eine gute Figur abgibt.
Schon die ersten beiden Songs 'You May Be Right' (#7 USA) und 'Sometimes A Fantasy' (#36 USA) haben mächtig viel Dampf und Power. Mit der gefühlvollen hübschen Ballade 'Don't Ask Me Why' (#19 USA) wird eine Verschnaufpause eingelegt, bevor mit dem größen Hit des Albums 'It's Still Rock And Roll To Me' (#14 UK, #1 USA) und dem unwiderstehlichen 'All For Leyna' (#40 UK) wieder die Post abgeht. Mit 'I Don't Want To Be Alone' und 'Sleeping With The Television On' folgen dann zwei Songs, die beide ok sind, aber nicht besonders auffallen, Die darauf folgende, teilweise in französisch gesungene, Ballade C'Était Toi (You Were the One) ist dann wieder Balsam für die Seele, bevor mit dem durchschnittlichen 'Close To The Borderline' der Schwachpunkt des Albums folgt. Im wundervollen Albumabschluß 'Through The Long Night' dominieren dann wieder sanftere Klänge, begleitet von einer wundervollen Melodie.
Das Album belegte 1980 #9 in UK, #1 in USA und #24 in D. Beste Songs für mich 'All For Leyna' und 'Through The Long Night'.
