Blondie's songs and sultry swagger hit the tipping point in '78 and they leapt from hip new-wave band to full-fledged pop stars. Along with their all-time classics Heart of Glass and One Way or Another.

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' "Hanging on the Telephone," Parallel Lines established Blondie as major stars.

The third Blondie album, and the first to have real hits (everyone knows at least four songs off this record). It's a great album and it put this band on the map. There was even "controversy" in their scene over the song "Heart Of Glass"...
