iTunes Review

Billy Joel "retired" from pop music with 1993's River of Dreams, but he continues to perform live when the circumstances are right. Here, he's in a festive/cranky mood for a New Year's Eve celebration at Madison Square Garden in New York City to ring in the year 2000. While the event has clearly lost its momentum years out, this set serves as a souvenir and decent summary of his career for fans who already have the hits and would like to hear them breathe in new ways. Joel is enough of an entertainer to make the experience an engaging one, and among his memorable onstage chatter he acknowledges the bravery it took to attend a high-profile event in NYC despite that year's New Year's Eve terrorism fears. The inclusion of tunes like "Summer Highland Falls," "The Ballad of Billy the Kid," and "Big Man on Mulberry Street" show off Joel's catalog. Once he's past "Auld Lang Syne," he kicks it up a notch with Sly Stone's "Dance to the Music," The Rolling Stones' "Honky Tonk Women," and his own rockers from Glass Houses

What the heck!

Why does iTunes dog on all of bill joel's records?... he's awesome.... no matter what song he sings... this is the 3rd review I read and they're all negative... !!!

Still Amazing Even at 51

WOW!! Billy Joel may be getting along in age, but his performance and sound is still unparalleled. I am greatly impressed by this live album. Yes, most times he does a little ad lib. on songs, but that is easily surpassable. He still has a lot of enthusiasm, which makes it all the more worthwhile to buy this album. You will not be sorry you bought this!

Great CD for people who enjoy REAL music.

I agree, iTunes is really sticking it to one of the greatest pop artists of all time. Of course 30 years after his debut his voice might "stretch mighty thin," i doubt any artist can go that long and still be able to perform perfectly. The bottom line is this, dont listen to the idiots who wrote the iTunes review, this is a great CD of some of his most popular and most beautiful songs. Its a great addition to any collection. Dont waste your time on current CDs with "artists" such as Lil Wayne or AKON. Instead, enjoy this blast from the past CD that will offer what todays artists cant, real music.

Although Billy Joel never was a critic's favorite, the pianist emerged as one of the most popular singer/songwriters of the latter half of the '70s. Joel's music consistently demonstrates an affection for Beatlesque hooks and a flair for Tin Pan Alley and Broadway melodies. His fusion of two distinct eras made him a superstar in the late '70s and '80s, as he racked an impressive string of multi-platinum albums and hit singles. Born in the Bronx, Joel was raised in the Long Island suburb of Hicksville,...
