An amazing album, and definitely his best album. Billy joel literally became famous with this album. From up-beat songs like "Worst comes to worst", and "Ain't no crime", to Billy Joel classics like "The Ballad Of Billy The Kid", "Captain Jack", and of course, his greatest song of all time, "Piano Man". Billy Joel wrote this album when he was down on his luck, and working at a piano bar. He changed his career with this album. Deserves spot for sure! A top three: Piano man, The Stranger, and 52nd Street.
