"Don't ask me why is my favourite track, but hey they could ALL be my favourite track!! there are only 10 tracks on this fine CD from this 1980 Album. Billy Joel is a fine Singer Songwriter and is a fine writer of songs that tell stories ( a bit like Harry Chapin in the 70's) and they are worth listening to for the words not just great catch tunes. This Album is good when you are on long car journey as it is a Album worth listening to ALL the way through at the same time as a continuous story.
The Title " Glass Houses" just means "People who live in Glass Houses should not throw stones. THAT is what the theme is here if you listen to the lyrics.he only had ONE British no 1 in 83 but should have had more.
The biggest hit from this is " Its still rock and roll to me" you will love this Album...Trust me........I would give it 10 Stars IF I could have! he's just been given a prestige award....and well deserved too.
What has slightly irritated me, and hence only 4 stars, is that although you can purchase, and download this album in MP3 format from Amazon, Autorip was not available on this purchase. It is available on a version of this album that must be an import as it is priced at £23. Bizzare or what.
Apart from that little niggling gripe, if you like Billy Joel's musical style, I do not think you would be disappointed with thsi album. If I was pushed however An Innocent man was slightly better. But that is just my personal view. Enjoy !!!
It's a little less piano orientated than some of his other albums and quite rocky in parts (again not to be confused with the '50s rock 'n' roll of An Innocent Man) but also has slightly softer songs like C'Était toi.
As often early on in his career when he was a little less of navel gazer there are smattering of good lyrics, the sentiments of being utterly obsessed with an ex in All for Leyna will be familiar to many - but for me, the most memorable moment of the album is the bit most people will know where Richie Connata breaks into the sax solo in It's Still Rock and Roll to me and Joel shouts "All right Rico..." Great stuff. Fun music, superb songs that still sound great. Makes you long for new talent this good.
Opening with the smash hit You May Be Right , and continuing with such great songs as the funky Sometimes A Fantasy , the upbeat It's Still Rock And Roll To Me , All For Leyna , the laidback Sleeping With The Television On and the melodic C'etait Toi (You Were The One) and Through The Long Night.
This album combines glam rock with with Joel's flowing melody.
A definite initiation of Billy Joel's 80's music.
