Blondie: Parallel Lines

"Parallel Lines is the third studio album by American new wave band Blondie, released in September 1978 by Chrysalis Records. Selling over 20 million copies worldwide, the album proved to be the band's commercial breakthrough in the United States. Parallel Lines was also the first Blondie album to be produced by Mike Chapman. The album reached number one in the United Kingdom in February 1979 and number six in the United States in April 1979. ... According to Allmusic's William Ruhlmann, the album's 'state-of-the-art pop/rock circa 1978' showed Blondie deviating from new wave and emerging as 'a pure pop band.' Music journalist Ken Tucker said that they eschewed the 'brooding artiness' of their previous albums for more hooks and pop-oriented songs. ... Parallel Lines contains several of Blondie's best-known hits, including 'Heart of Glass', 'Hanging on the Telephone', 'Sunday Girl' and 'One Way or Another'" (Wikipedia).
