Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 5/11/00, p.132
3 stars out of 5 - "...A lively reminder of Joel's massively crowd-pleasing way with an arena....the set list is surprisingly imaginative....proving that Billy and the band know how to kick out the party-rock jams..."
Q - 7/00, p.118
3 stars out of 5 - "...Joel is a considerable craftsman who understands his constituency....[here] he's right on the money, delivering the hits...and better album tracks..."

Billy Joel recorded this live set at New York's Madison Square Garden, in front of 20,000 of his closest personal friends, on December 31, 1999. The recording has an obvious party atmosphere, but it differs from earlier Joel live efforts in that, apparently stung by criticism that he had at last become the MOR balladeer his detractors had claimed he'd always been anyway, he puts the guitars into overdrive. Even ballads like "New York State of Mind" get what is essentially a garage band treatment. As if to prove the point further, Joel also includes surprisingly idiomatic covers of the Rolling Stones' "Honky Tonk Women" and Sly Stone's "Dance to the Music," both of which hark back to the music he was making in Long Island bars in the late '60s with his first band the Hassles.
