In this new interview video about The Complete Albums Collection, Billy Joel talks about creating his Fantasies & Delusions album. He notes, I write all the time. People may not know it because I don’t record it, but I’m just writing thematic music, and that’s where my interest is now.

2006 Отправился в мировое турне в поддержку бокс-сета My Lives.

2007 Был выпущен юбилейный бокс-сет, посвящённый 30-летию выпуска альбома Stranger.

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). What is a surprise is that the resulting project, Fantasies & Delusions, is pretty successful - it's a nice collection of pleasingly modest, melodic solo piano pieces, mainly sonatas, written by Joel and performed by Richard Joo. Joel succeeds because he kept his ambitions reasonable and was smart about presentation.

The reason Fantasies & Delusions is one that even Joel's most faithful followers aren't advised to hear isn't because the music is bad. Rather, it's due to the sharp divergence from everything that he's done. As the album's subtitle alludes, the only instrument present is the piano. No vocals, no drums, no guitar; just the piano. One should also bear in-mind that this isn't a short trip. Fantasies & Delusions has no problem taking time, clocking in past the 75-minute mark.

Band Name Billy Joel. Album Name Opus 1-10: Fantasies & Delusions : Music for Solo Piano. Дата релиза 02 Октябрь 2001. Лейблы Columbia Records.

The album, titled Fantasies & Delusions, was released on Sept. 27, 2001, featuring Joel’s compositions and Joo’s musicianship. The album’s cover design was an homage to the Schirmer classical sheet music from which Joel had played as a kid. Joel’s fan base pushed a classical recording to No. 83 on the Billboard album chart and kept it at No. 1 on the classical chart for 18 weeks.
