"The Impex 180-gram remastering by Kevin Gray is superb. It replaces the spongy timing and dull top of the original Columbia LP with expansive space and sharp details. Its vivid and brightened treble is welcome compared to the warm but smothered original. Listen for Joel's doubled harmonies, the pennywhistle in "Rosalinda's Eyes," and the burning horn section in "Half a Mile Away," and you'll hear what a difference a great remastering makes." - Neil Gader, The Absolute Sound, October 2011, Issue 216, Pg. 129
"The intensive road-work dictated by the success of The Stranger produced a leaner, rock-oriented follow-up, typified by "Big Shot." Like an American Elton John, Joel assimilated whatever styles (jazz, Latin rhythms) suited his purpose. "I don't want to limit my diet," he said, "sampling only one vegetable in the garden." - www.rollingstone.com
