Description: Until 1978, Blondie was perceived mostly as a '60s-referencing, British-Invasion-meets-girl-groups band. With veteran producer Mike Chapman at the helm for their third album, though, everything changed for this group bred from the New York punk scene. Honing in on Blondie's strongest points--Deborah Harry's come-hither vocals and Clem Burke's powerhouse drumming--Chapman helped recast the band to the power pop side of new wave, and with impressive results. Driven by the punk-meets-disco chart-topping hit, "Heart of Glass," and the herky-jerky "One Way or Another," as well as a muscular cover of the Nerves' &q ... (more)

"Deborah Harry and her crew might have started out as CBGB punks, but her voice was clearly always meant for the big time. She poses and preens, with a heart of glass and a heart of stone. Essential moment: "Hanging On The Telephone," when she growls, "I can’t control myself.""

"Downtown art-punk goes pop Blondie were too smart and sexy to be genuine punks, and their third album proved it. With pop chops, disco grooves and enough cooing harmonies to pass for low-rent Ronettes, the million-selling Parallel Lines transcended new wave, winning over Middle America. Standout tracks: “Hanging on the Telephone,” “Heart of Glass”"

At first it was met with skepticism by the band's label, as it contained some songs that were only half-finished upon entering the studio. Nonetheless, it went on to sell more than 20 million copies worldwide and catapulted the band into international superstardom. Parallel Lines saw Blondie pull from its varied influences, although the album as a whole w"
