It was pretty clear that Billy Joel had run out of steam by 1993's River of Dreams. He had shown signs of wearing on its predecessor, Storm Front, but his trademark melodic gift disappeared on River of Dreams and his words, even performances, were bone-tired - he even called the last song "The Last Song (No More Words). Joel succeeds because he kept his ambitions reasonable and was smart about presentation. He didn't compose symphonies, he wrote piano pieces and passed them off to somebody who could play them dexterously in the way they were meant to be played.

Truth be told, it's not half bad. Granted, a key reason behind this is because Joel and performer Richard Joo are clearly paying homage and tribute to influences from music's classical days. The melodies and piano-playing we're given are nicely handled, lending a rather good level of progression for just one instrument. Some might compare it to elevator music, or think of it as little more than what an instructor would use for training piano students
