Stranger songs Product Information
Stranger album for sale by Billy Joel was released Oct 20, 1998 on the Columbia label. He's known to many as an inoffensive pop balladeer, but at the arguable peak of his career in the late '70s, Billy Joel released his darkest, most emotionally charged album. THE STRANGER abandons the grandstanding and broad melodic sweep of Joel's earlier records for a more intimate, introspective sound, effectively communicating Joel's ruminations on the perils of life and love. Stranger CD music contains a single disc with 9 songs. ...See Full Description

||A must for ALL Joel fans!|
I bought this album back in the late 70's on vinyl and recently purchased the CD. This is one of my all time favorite albums. The clarity of the prose, the beauty in the composition, Joel is a gifted songwriter/composer and if you were never a fan before you will be after listening to this one. Even though recorded in the 70's the music still sounds as fresh today as it did then. A classic!

Billy Joel Is A Great singer I Love His Best Work.

Absolutely essential music! Beautiful lyrics recorded supurbly. Dim the lights, pure a glass of wine, put on the disc, and sit back in your love seat with your wife!

||Billy Joel Doing What He Does Best!|
Stranger CD music This was an excellent album from Billy Joel, at least on an artistic front. However, production values are lacking, and even when I owned the half-speed master (audiophile record, for those who don't know), I played it the one time and I returned it, as I was that dissatisfied with the sound quality. The CD isn't much better either-you can repackage it all you want, but if the original master sounds like junk, there is nothing that you can do about it. If you aren't into the high fidelity scene like I am, then this is an excellent place to start your Billy Joel collection.... however, if you are a hi-fi nut, I would start with an album like 52nd Street, or Glass Houses, and then work up the stomach to listen to The Stranger, but in all fairness, Billy Joel's outstanding songwriting quality is completely there, and so are the musical arrangements that he is known for!
By J.R. (Minnesota, USA)
A very well-rounded album, with a rich ensemble that never overdoes it, though I think that "Only the Good Die Young" belongs on "An Innocent Man"
