CONCEPT IN RELATION TO THE VIEWER: MTV Music Videos at the height of the genre.  

PROS AND CONS:  This is a disc best suited for just listening.  The visuals are good and entertaining to watch.  However, Joel’s songs stand on their own and paint a much richer picture in our minds than the image in front of our eyes.

The live footage at the end of the disk is a bit preachy at the beginning.  When a celebrity gives you a little lecture before he plays his hit song.

This film was viewed while exercising on my recumbent cycle.  A summary of my time spent working out on my journey through movie-land can be found on Strava.com.
