5.0 classicXenorazr CONTRIBUTOR | August 3rd 10

By utilizing various moods, feelings and emotions with much passion, Billy Joel paves way to a pinnacle in quality music. Without going overboard, The Stranger retains control while surging with power, regardless of how upbeat, serious or calm it becomes.

4.5 superblz41 | March 7th 17

A cool, smart rock 'n roll album that knows when to knuckle down and when to throw out the flash and theatrics. Joel discusses the temporary nature of modern life from work to ambition to identity.

4.5 superbmkamrass | December 4th 14

A man who writes amazing lyrics and has an attractive voice equals a superb album.
