++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Two decades after this record was released, it is time to revisit it. This album was famous for the single “We Didn’t Start The Fire.”  The single is considered as a summary of modern history’s important events.  It was so good that even schools at that time used this song to raise awareness about the different personalities who had helped shaped history.

Another important song in this record was “I Go To Extreme.”  This was the song that proved once and for all that Billy Joel has still got it when it comes to creating pop and radio friendly songs. The single became one of his top 10 Billboard hits.  While the rest of tracks in this album escaped attention from among the listeners it does not mean that those were not good.  This album was both a treat for loyal fans and avid music listeners.

Two decades after, some songs may sound not right considering the EDM factor in most tracks produced today, still you have an album where current artist can study and enlightened themselves on how to produce very satisfactory album if not a classic one.  Yes, this record deserves to be in your collection and reviewers must raised their ratings also befitting of what the album has achieved over the years.

I stay this record deserved a 4.5 stars rating.

Ratings Description:

1 star = Ignore it

2 stars= risk it

4 stars = buy it and keep it

5 = buy, keep, and treasure it
