Nice Do-Wop Tones But Not Quite Prime Time

This Billy Joel CD certainly has its good moments. Surprisingly I tend to prefer the less commercial tunes such as This Time, Easy Money, and Christy Lee. Uptown Girl is my fave among the singles. Love the steady drumming and of course the strong vocals.

The other singles have a steady pattern which is OK now and than but a little repetitive on a regular basis. The title track is a bit too drawn out with a relatively weak hook around the I Am An Innocent Man part. Keepin' The Faith also lacks staying power. A more ellaborate bridge would have been helpful.

Maybe its just me, I but lean to Billy Joel's less overplayed recordings such as Turnstiles, Streetlight Serenader, Cold Spring Harbor, and The Bridge. I also like the more ellaborate, The Stranger and the new wave oriented Glass Houses. This one rates somewhere in the middle of the road.
