Album Review

The first Night and Day album by Joe Jackson is an absolute pop music masterpiece. The "sequel," appropriately entitled Night and Day II, like the first, is an homage to New York City. The sequel musically quotes the lilting keyboard lines from Jackson's biggest hit, "Steppin' Out," several times, making one long to hear the original on Night and Day. Highlights included "Glamour and Pain" and "Happyland." Marianne Faithfull makes an interesting guest vocal appearance on "Love Got Lost." Jackson is still angry, but he's no longer a young man and as always his anger is tempered by a wry sense of humor. The songs on Night and Day II are not as easily accessible or memorable as the original, but this is still a great album and Joe Jackson is still the man.

Customer Reviews

A Nice and Interesting Work

This is an album with interesting songs such as "Stranger Than You", "Glamour and Pain", and "Love Got Lost", and "Happy Land". Most especially interesting is "Glamour and Pain" where Joe Jackson sings in a falsetto voice which is kind of weird. Overall, the album is entertaining and interesting. I listen to it often.

The word "chameleon" often crops up in descriptions of him, but Jackson prefers to be thought of as "eclectic." Is he the Joe...
