Dernier album studio en date de Billy Joel, cet album est sorti fin 1993 avec en single le magnifique RIVER OF DREAMS.
Il n'y a que dix titres mais la plupart sont superbes.BLONDE OVER BLUE ou encore GREAT WALL OF CHINA (face B du single) nous montre un Billy Joel qui n'a rien perdu de sa forme. Même si il n'égale pas (et n'égalera surement plus) ses compositions des années 70, ces chansons nous montre un Billy Joel toujours aussi doué pour la mélodie.
Entouré à sa demande d'un nouveau producteur (pour renouveler son son, et son public), Billy réalise un album cohérent sur la longueur qui lui fera atteindre, une nouvelle fois, la première place du Top Albums américain.
Préférant surement partir sur un succès, Billy Joel annoncera alors qu'il prend sa retraite du monde de la pop music (à 44 ans) pour se consacrer à la musique classique. Après un CD de musique classique paru en 1997, Billy n'est ré-apparu dans les charts qu'avec une compilation et un double-album live.
Billy, reviendras-tu un jour?

On a souvent dit de Billy Joel qu'il était en quelque sorte le petit frère spirituel d'un certain et si célèbre Elton John. Le style de la musique est effectivement scotché à l'identique. C'est de la pop Anglaise... et de la pop enrichissante en l'occurence. En effet, elle ne s'encombre pas de fioritures encombrantes. Des orchestrations mesurées, entre guitares, basses, percussions, à l'occasion des trompettes et saxophones, sans oublier le piano et l'orgue de Billy. Des mélodies inspirées. Des synthés dispatchés. Beaucoup de balancements orchestralement cadencés, comme en atteste le titre d'ouverture ("No man's land"), sur la recherche dévouée de la sérénité. Mais aussi, la chanson titre qui nous guide le bleu de l'idéal, inaccompli en solitaire, puis finalement parachevé en humanité vers l'éternel recommencement ("Dans le milieu de la nuit, je vais me promener dans mon sommeil, de "la montagne de la foi" à la rivière si profonde. je dois être attiré par quelque chose. Quelque chose de sacré que j'ai perdu. Mais la rivière est large et il est trop dur de traverser... Dans le milieu de la nuit, je vais me promener dans mon sommeil, abreuver le désert de vérité. A la rivière si profonde, nous finirons tous dans l'océan. Nous commencerons tous dans les ruisseaux.Lire la suite ›

HASH(0x94cc71ec) étoiles sur 5 Carried Along Indeed 18 février 2003
Par Marty McCarthy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This album is not perfect. It is especially not perfect when its individual parts are scrutinized.
However, this may be a case where the whole of the album is greater than the sum of its parts.
In many ways, the album is best understood as not having 10 tracks but rather two movements and each movemt has its own discrete meaning.
Tracks 1-5 are in the first movement. Thus movement has Billy Joel tapping into matters such as:
1) Suburban bitterness in "No Man's Land," ("I see these children with their boredom and their vacant stares/ God help us all if we're to blame for their unanswered prayers)
2) His business manager's theft of Joel's money in "Great Wall of China," ("You take a piece of whatever you touch/Too many pieces mean you're touching too much.")
3) The distance and unattainability of his estranged "blond" wife, Christie Brinkley in "Blond Over Blue" ("But in the darkness, I see her light turned on.")
4) Billy Joel's own mental state in "A Minor Variation," ("Some days I have to give right into the blues...You think I'm crazy/It's such a sad composition/But can you blame me/For what's causing my bad disposition?)
5) His loss of faith at midlife in the world in "Shades of Grey" (These days it's harder to say I know what'I'm fighting for/My faith is falling away/I'm not that sure anymore")
The songs in this "first movement" discuss and explore negative emotions and utilize dissonant sounds to protray a man who has become truly lost in the world. The "cause of his bad disposition" is fully explored here in the first movement and it threatens to consume him.
Then the Second movement begins:
6) In "All About Soul," the listener is presented with something not previously heard on the record - the prominent use of Piano. During the songs of the "first movement" piano was used only once, in "Great Wall of China" but it was not a prominent part of the song here. If the "first movement" could be fairly categorized as the gathering storm, then "All About Soul" represents Billy Joel tying himself to the mast during the worst part of the storm. Though Joel is plagued by the "people who have lost every trace of/human kindness" and that "This life isn't fair" and that "getting tough is not enough," he does learn the answer to what plagues him, Soul. Now, "it's all about soul/It's all about faith and a deeper devotion."
7) "Lullabye" represents the calm after the storm. It represents Billy Joel taking inventory of what remains in his life that is good. And what he finds is his young daughter. And so, he sings her a song and in so doing, sings a song to himself. He answers himself in "No Man's Land" vowing not to be the blame for his own daughter's unanswered prayers, "I promised I would never leave you/ And you should Always Know/ Wherever you may go/No matter where you are/I will never be far away.
8) In learning that it was "All ABout Soul," the listener is then treated to some nice soul quennching gospel music. If in Lullabye we learned that one thing that remained in Joel's life that was good was his daughter, the other thing we learn is that the other thing that remains is his piano. "And I've been searching for something/Taken out of my soul/Something I would never lose/Something somebody stole." "River of Dreams" is a funky soul revival piano-laced fun time. It is the full-fledged return of the "Piano Man" and stands in sharp contrast to the songs in the first movement.
9) In "Two Thousand Years," Billy Joel has reached his new world. Now he must question the direction his life will take. "This is our moment/Here at the crossroads of time/We hope our children carry our dreams down the line/They are the vintage/What kind of life will they live?/Is this a curse or a blessing that we give?"
10) Though it may had been arguable then that Joel was correct in "A Minor Variation" in saying that he had "No way to win when you've already been forgotten," he does not sound bitter in "Famous Last Words" when he says that there's "Nothing left for a dreamer now, only one final serenade."
The "second movement" features piano prominently on every song which stands in sharp contrast to the first movement. The hope of the second movement is juxtaposed by the despair of the first.
Taken individually, there are some songs that are standouts and others that are not. Taken as a whole, all of the songs flow together into one larger song with one larger meaning. Taken together, all the pieces fit and it is this big piece that Billy Joel (who had aspirations to be a history teacher, among other things) puts forth as the lesson of the history of his life. He interprets his legacy. And, most importantly, Joel hopes that the listener has learned something in singing "Ain't that the story of my life."
"Ain't" that indeed.

HASH(0x94cc71f8) étoiles sur 5 Joel's Most Reflective, Mature Album 31 août 2003
Par Alex Diaz-Granados - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
River of Dreams, Billy Joel's last pop rock album, is 10 years old this year. It seemingly closed one chapter of Joel's creative career and opened another as he turned his attention to other musical genres. And even though listeners may have thought that River of Dreams was his farewell to pop, he has never ruled out future offerings, After all. Joel still tours and his record label still sells copies of his classic albums, compilations and Greatest Hits sets, and recently Movin' Out, a Broadway show written around some of his classics ("Good Night, Saigon," "Movin' Out [Anthony's Song])" has been acclaimed by audiences and critics alike.
Even if these are Joel's "Famous Last Words" (that being the title of the last track) in the pop arena, River of Dreams is an eclectic mix of styles and themes. The 10 songs reflect a blend of anger at urban blight ("No Man's Land"), the nature of true love ("All About Soul"), parental love ("Lullabye [Goodnight, My Angel]"), and serious explorations of a spiritual nature ("River of Dreams," "Two Thousand Years").
Although the other songs on this album are also good ones ("Blonde Over Blue," "Shades of Grey," and "The Great Wall of China"), I tend to give more play time to the more sentimental compositions. Of these, my favorite is the titular "River of Dreams," with its catchy hooks and Gospel influences. It's reminiscent of the start of his friend Elton John's "Circle of Life," and its Gospel-choir background vocals and almost Biblical turns of phrase ("I was searching for something/something so undefined/that it can only be seen/by the eyes of the blind/in the middle of the night") make this song memorable and thought provoking.
"Lullabye" actually started out as a Grieg-inspired piece for solo piano but morphed into a lovely song for his daughter Alexa Ray. Its lyrics hint at the turmoil in Joel's personal life at the time (he and Christie Brinkley would be divorced within a year of the album's release) and his devotion to his daughter ("I promised I would never leave you/and you should always know/Wherever you may go/no matter where you are/I never will be far away").
"Two Thousand Years" caught my attention for various reasons. I like the interplay between Joel's keyboards (piano and organ) and drummer Steve Jordan. I love the melody (very reflective music tends to grab me) and the lyrics ("Time is relentless/only true love perseveres"). Very few songs in pop can make me sit up and listen attentively, and "Two Thousand Years" is one of these.

HASH(0x94b93588) étoiles sur 5 How is it possible to dislike this album? 13 février 2006
Par Lynn Kerry - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Alright. If I tell anyone here I'm 14, they'll probably throw their head back and laugh. That's nice. Go ahead and do that. OKAY. Now that everyone knows I am of youthful spirit, I'm going to continue this review. Mainly I'm here to defend the song Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel). About two years ago, my grandmother died, and my dad was assigned the part of making a CD with songs for her funeral. My dad hadn't heard this song in a while, and he was considering it for the CD. He said, Jess come here I've just got to play you this. When I first heard it, I thought it was beautiful. If definetly defined my grandmothers usual spirit as a loving, caring mother (even though Joel sang it from the perspective of a father.) I knew that when everyone heard it, they'd think of my grandma. Ever since her funeral, the song has had a very special place in my heart. One of my friends did a solo ballet dance to it and everyone almost cried. I play piano, so my family and my piano teacher searched wide for the music. I ended up playing it for my recital, and inspired a parent to learn it on guitar. All in all, what I'm trying to say is this song is very influential, and speaks to people in many different ways. It reflects on Joel's career in a very positive way. And even if this CD wasn't the fruit of his career, I'd buy it just to have Lullabye. And BTW- I also like some of Billy Joel's songs that fit into other categories, such as We didn't Start the Fire. If I got that wrong, sorry. Anyway, that's all I've got to say. Thanks for reading :)

HASH(0x94b93900) étoiles sur 5 Has Strength in Places 16 décembre 2004
Par Lonnie E. Holder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Early in his career Billy Joel established himself as an extraordinary blues singer with the incredible album "The Stranger." As his music evolved and he moved ever more toward middle-of-the-road rock, he left behind the intense, emotional songs that exemplified his style. 1993's "River of Dreams" attempts to get back to that earlier style, with mixed results.

The CD begins with "No Man's Land," a song about the ills of not only modern America, but the world. The fast-paced song has a catchy beat and is well performed. However, the lyrics are full of catch phrases about big business, industrialization and turning ourselves into mindless TV zombies. The problem with the lyrics is that Billy Joel has lived a luxurious life and has benefited from all the ills he sings about. Had someone like Dylan or Frank Zappa sang this song it would have been believable. Coming out of Billy Joel's mouth it just seems hypocritical, regardless of how sincere he tries to be.

The next track, "The Great Wall of China," is a blues-flavored rock song about a breakup of friendships. The lyrics are interestingly ambiguous regarding whether the friendship is between friends or a love interest, but there are hints that the song is more about a breakup with a love interest. Billy Joel puts his heart into this song, and given his track record with women, he has experienced the pain.

"Blonde Over Blue" had the potential to be a great song, but falls just short of the mark. Joel's vocal performance is excellent. The lyrics are excellent and emotional. However, the pace of the song is wrong for the lyrics. Sometimes it seems that Joel should linger over certain portions of the lyrics longer than he does, but the music forces him to move on. The song remains quite good, but it could have been incredible.

"A Minor Variation" is a wonderful blues song where the elements all come together. This song represents Billy Joel at his best, very reminiscent of his earliest albums. The singing is sincere and powerful. The pacing of the song and the instruments all work together. This song is one of the strongest on this CD. Yet another song that taps into Billy Joel's heart is "All about Soul." Joel is best when he sings about subjects he has strong feelings about, and he has deep feelings about faith, love and devotion, and this blues ballad is very clear in letting you know that. This song is the longest on this CD, clocking in at a nearly epic six minutes.

Every artist seems to have a song that contrasts their current opinions with those they held when they were younger, and realize they have changed. "Shades of Grey" is yet another entry in this category. The lyrics are sufficiently straight forward; the music is somewhat 60s retro. I would rate the song as good, about average for this CD.

Another emotionally raw song is "Lullabye (Goodnight, My Angel)." The music is simple; generally a piano carries most of the song, with an occasional orchestral seasoning. You can hear Billy Joel singing this song to his little girl, or you to yours. The quiet simplicity of the words, the heartfelt words, all make this song a standout Billy Joel song deserved of being on a "best of" compilation. Think of Billy Joel the way he sang in his early years. I am unable to describe how powerful this simple song is.

I have always considered "The River of Dreams" to be one of Billy Joel's most unique and excellent songs. It did take a little while to grow on me because the combination of soul, spiritual and rock was something to which I am unaccustomed. However, like several other songs on this CD, this track comes across as sincere and filled with emotion. The song describes a person who perhaps has had minimal faith seeking a truth, seeking faith. The lyrics are filled with religious allusions. While the topic of the song is serious, and Joel sings sincerely, there is a certain enthusiasm that pervades the singing, as should be with any song about Christianity.

The topic of the previous song was faith and seeking; "Two Thousand Years" is a much more serious and introspective song. The song looks back over the last two thousand years, and points out that we have made it this far because of our faith, will, love and the gifts of God. The song then focuses on the present and the future. Though the tone starts very somber, the vocals soar and the lyrics hope that all the progress we have made will work hand-in-hand with our faith to make an incredible future. Perhaps the song is slightly cautionary in reminding us that we are little without our faith, and faith is just as important as technology.

The last song is a true last song. A number of artists have closed out their albums with a wrap up song that indicated that the album was over. However, "Famous Last Words" seems more than that. I have read that Billy Joel intended to make this CD his last pop/rock album. Also, Billy Joel was going through personal tribulations during this time. The song thus seems to be closing chapters on his professional and personal life, in addition to being the end of the album. This song is yet another of the very good songs on this CD.

It is fitting that Billy Joel went back to his roots for much of this CD. The emotion and power of "The Stranger" is in many of these songs, making this CD a must-have for Billy Joel fans. Reading between the lines of his personal and professional life, many of the lyrics seem to have double meanings. Just short of being a great album, it is very good and will find a place in your Billy Joel collection.

HASH(0x94b93ae0) étoiles sur 5 Underrated 7 février 2006
Par Johngy's Beat - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
As a fan of Billy Joel, I immediately expect to like his work. When 'River of Dreams' was released, I was a bit apprehensive due to the bad reviews. I listened to it once, then again and again, absolutely loving it.

The first song, 'No Man's Land', is an edgy number which starts the CD in high gear. The next 3 songs aren't great, but they have their moments. Each contains shades of vintage Billy Joel.

The rest of the CD is where the praise is deserved. 'Shades of Grey' is a reflective piece showing Billy's growth. 'All About Soul' continues this theme. 'Lullabye' is a beautiful song written for his daughter. It is soulful, thoughtful and moving.

The title track is a bouncy, fun song, but introspective in its' own right. I rank it as one of Billy's all-time best. The last 2 songs are just typical Billy. They seem like your average Billy song, which means they are excellent.

The CD seems very connected, almost like a theme album. These may not be classic rock songs, but they are enjoyable and meaningful. This CD never seems to get the respect it deserves, but neither does Billy.
