Album · 1978 · 9 Songs. Just how persuasive had Billy Joel’s songs become by the late ’70s? The infallible vocal melody on the keyboard-driven My Life and the barbed narrative on guitar-rocker Big Shot practically define American culture at the time. Tunes like Zanzibar and Stiletto skillfully blend elements of Broadway, jazz-rock and nightclub jive, and there’s epic bittersweetness in Rosalinda’s Eyes. The soaring balladry of Until the Night would do The Righteous Brothers proud, but it’s the title-song finale that brings this Phil Ramone-produced beauty full circle. 52nd Street Billy Joel.
