Glass Houses

If, like me, you're conflicted over reconciling the good times in the early '80s associated with Billy Joel's music with how trite "Piano Man" sounds from adulthood, and how "Scenes From An Italian Restaurant" has gone from accepting that we can't go back to our teens from our twenties to being a ballad of proto NJ Guidos, then you might enjoy the description that goes along with Hussalonia's cover of the entire Glass Houses album.

And the music might help you rock out to the nostalgia without feeling terminally uncool, where even though I'd enjoy the flashback I just could not possibly go see the Movin' Out Broadway Show.

My fond memories of Billy Joel are from the mid 70s. Captain Jack was a song that inspired me to move out of my parents house before I turned 20.

Since I believe Glass Houses is Joel's one truly outstanding album with almost no bum tracks, I don't think I'll go listen to covers of it even if they're bizarre.

Actually, they're quite good. I fondly remember listening to the original, and I think Hussalonia's version of You May Be Right is better.
