My thoughts on what I think is Billy Joel's masterpiece.
In short, The Nylon Curtain is where Billy Joel went serious, consciously crafting a song cycle about Baby Boomers in the Reagan era. Since this was an album about Baby Boomers, he chose to base his music almost entirely on the Beatles, the pivotal rock band for his generation.

While Billy Joel has long admitted to idolizing Paul McCartney. And Where’s the Orchestra? - a wistful McCartney-esque curtain closer-also keeps to a vaudevillian spirit. But it’s offset by the expansive love song, She’s Right on Time. Coming after the frolicsome but forgettable Glass Houses, The Nylon Curtain finds Billy Joel on higher artistic ground than ever before.

With this powerful song cycle, Billy Joel turned his attention to what was happening with baby boomers and their world in the ’80s. On Allentown, he addressed the death of manufacturing and its effect on the working class, using the sounds of factory machinery as a rhythm to push his stomping piano and anthemic melody. The songwriting and production are ambitious throughout, especially on Goodnight Saigon, a dramatic seven-minute tour de force about Vietnam vets, bookended by the sound of helicopters.
