Leningrad is one of the best songs ever.
nix
They are not bad songs at all, just seem a little too much like filler to an otherwise fine album.
Barry
The backup vocals and the drums enhance "When In Rome" very well.

In March of 1990, when I was 27, my long time friend Betsy Matteis told me she had several tickets to Billy Joel's then-current Storm Front concert tour. She had watched (with some bemusement, I think) me become a Joel fan over the years, and three months before she had stood in line at a local Ticketmaster outlet for hours so we could go see the Piano Man perform live at the Miami Arena. At the last minute she could not go, but she arranged it so that two friends of hers would accompany me to Overtown and attend the concert.
Of course, Billy's live performances were never really replicated in the albums they promoted. Rather, they tended to be a mix of the new material being presented and a selection of older songs that audiences can sing along to. (The Billy Joel: Live from Yankee Stadium DVD is very close to the content of the Miami shows, down to the sing-along of "Piano Man.")
Storm Front was one of Joel's last pop music albums -- his last offering of original songs, River of Dreams, would come out in 1993 -- and it is one of his best. Six of the 10 songs in Storm Front were included in his Greatest Hits Volume III album, including "Shameless," "And So It Goes," "Leningrad," "The Downeaster Alexa," and "We Didn't Start The Fire."
"We Didn't Start The Fire" is a guitar based song (a rare such one for keyboardist/pianist Joel) that sums up major events in Billy's first 40 years. It's pretty catchy (but difficult to sing along to without the booklet of lyrics) and has had the unexpected but welcome effect of getting kids to remember historical events. Joel, in the DVD of Greatest Hits III, says that teachers would say to their students to listen to "We Didn't Start The Fire" and write the words down.

From the beginning to the end, each song plays with your soul, bringing it from the verge of tears to the threshold of sheer joy. The somber tones in "Downeaster Alexa" and the spunky beat in "Extremes" are welcome contrasts in this album. By far the best piece, "And So It Goes" probes into the far reaches of the heart, to the places seldom discussed and less frequently revealed. This song of complete submission to true love brings tears to the eyes of anyone who knows what love is. Billy Joel's soft, light tone relates to all of us who have completely submitted to sincere love, and those of us who have "felt the thorns" know why our "eyes are closed." But without a doubt time goes on, and so it goes, and so it goes. This is only one example of emotions stirred by the music and words of "Stormfront."

As Billy Joel's career entered the mid 1980s, much of the momentum he had built in the late 1970s had slowed down. In the late 1970s and 1980s, one could almost count on the release of a Billy Joel album every 12 to 24 months. As Billy began to settle down in his family life with Christie Brinkley, things began to slow down - this was evident after 1983's "An Innocent Man" as Billy would now go on what seemed to be a 36 month cycle for releasing albums. With the slowdown in momentum, many people began to wonder if Billy's best days were behind him. However with the release of his 12th album, "Storm Front" - Billy would prove them wrong. Not only did this album contain some new songs that would join Billy's long list of hits, but it would also produce some more hidden gems.

I look at Billy Joel's career as having three phases. The first phase is what I call "Old Billy Joel". This basically includes all of his material from "Cold Spring Harbor" through "Turnstiles". These are perhaps the strongest days as the piano sound, but they also contain most of Joel's least heard material. The next phase is what I call "Middle Billy Joel". This was his most successful period and covers from "The Stranger" to "Billy Joel Greatest Hits Volume 1 and 2". Joel would go through a transition during this phase - expanding his musical horizons and exploring different avenues. The final phase is the "Later Billy Joel" phase - this covers "The Bridge" to "River of Dreams". In this phase, Billy would start to incorporate some of his older styles of music while not abandoning his desire to continue to explore new avenues. For the most part, on "Storm Front" Billy continues to move forward exploring new avenues - with just touches of reaching back to the past.

If I could,I would actually give this album 3 1/2 stars. Four is too many, and three is too few. I call it a guilty pleasure because it is an extremely commercial record, intended to produce a handful of hit singles. But at the same time Storm Front is not entirely unpleasant to listen to.
It opens with two solid rockers; The bombastic "That's Not Her Style" and the quick-paced "We Didn't Start The Fire". The latter of the two became a number one hit with it's incessant hook and rapid-fire lyrics. Listing prominent dates, names and events of Billy Joel's lifetime, the words form a Cold War timeline with a heavy rock beat.
Then comes one of the albums two best songs, "The Downeaster 'Alexa'". On this track Billy sings passionately about the struggles of Long Island's commercial fishermen. The incorporation of violin, accordian and a rowing-like beat gives the song its high seas aura.
The next song is "I Go To Extremes", an up-tempo, hook-driven number that is good fun to listen to.
The ballad "Shameless", which was eventually made into a number one Country hit by Garth Brooks, is one of Billy's most sensual songs. He sings the song like a man truly in love.
"Shameless" is followed by "Storm Front", the albums title track. The song's heavy beat and horn accompaniment give it an almost bluesy feel.
The tone of the album once again becomes quasi-political with "Leningrad". Though slightly schmaltzy, this is a nice song with a good message. It tells the true story of a Russian circus clown Billy befriended during his tour of the Soviet Union, and how that friendship changed Billy's perception of the Cold War.
