"1980 Grammy Awards Winner - Best Male Rock Vocal Performance"

The 1980 album begins with the sound of glass shattering - Billy Joel decided
to change musical gears for his seventh album and with producer Phil Ramone,
Glass Houses delivered a mix of hard rock, soft rock, pop, and new wave. New
sounds are present on this record, and Billy's acoustic piano gives way to heavier
keyboards, meaty guitar riffs and more prominent drums.

Glass Houses still displays the hallmarks of Billy Joel the pop craftsman and features
his first #1 single, "It's Still Rock and Roll to Me," as well as the hits, "Sometimes a
Fantasy
" and "Don't Ask Me Why."  The album was #1 for six weeks and ranked # 4
on Billboard's year-end album chart.

Joel remains one of the greatest hitmakers of our time and this album gives us a
look at a younger artist and what is regarded as his first pure rock album.

 

"...Glass Houses connects immediately with a string of hits never surpassed...as powerful and succinct as Joel gets."
