The Nylon Curtain is the eighth studio album by American singer-songwriter Billy Joel, released on June 28, 1982 and produced by Phil Ramone. The Nylon Curtain peaked at No. 7 on the Billboard albums chart, with two million sales in the . It was one of the first albums to be digitally recorded, mixed, and mastered.

My thoughts on what I think is Billy Joel's masterpiece.

Special thanks to Gus Skinnas of SONY Digital Audio, Fred Layne of Studer, Revox, America and Alan Silverman.

Billy Joel - Allentown. Album: The Nylon Curtain (1982). billy joel allentown the nylon curtain classic rock pop rock soft rock while i admit i don't listen to billy joel much he's still pretty great. The whole tune is so intricately crafted from the simple piano part, to the ello lines, all the way down to that moment at the end when the clarinet and accordion quote Allentown which instantly brings the album full circle, masterfully unifying it. The song modulates several times, as many Joel tunes do.

With this powerful song cycle, Billy Joel turned his attention to what was happening with baby boomers and their world in the ’80s. On Allentown, he addressed the death of manufacturing and its effect on the working class, using the sounds of factory machinery as a rhythm to push his stomping piano and anthemic melody. The songwriting and production are ambitious throughout, especially on Goodnight Saigon, a dramatic seven-minute tour de force about Vietnam vets, bookended by the sound of helicopters. The Nylon Curtain Billy Joel.

Exclusively for Prime members. We can hear the past, present and future of Billy Joel on this album and we can hear the strong influence of his rock idols, including 'The Beatles'. 7 people found this helpful.
