Parallel Lines is the third studio album by American rock band Blondie. It was released on September 23, 1978, by Chrysalis Records to international commercial success. The album reached No. 1 in the United Kingdom in February 1979 and proved to be the band's commercial breakthrough in the United States, where it reached No. 6 in April 1979. In Billboard magazine, Parallel Lines was listed at No. 9 in the top pop albums year-end chart of 1979.

I don't consider "Parallel Lines" to be Blondie's best album, (that honor goes to the sophisticated, "Autoamerican") but I do think it was their most accomplished. 8 people found this helpful.
