iTunes Review

Singer/songwriters Elton John and Leon Russell had a lot of history together in their early days, so it’s no surprise that, 40 years later, they sound as if they'd been playing together the whole time. “If It Wasn’t for Bad” is solid, no-nonsense road music, and the piano-driven “Eight Hundred Dollar Shoes” plays with their legacy as it looks at their past success in all its faded glory. There’s a whole lot of beauty throughout this record, but its gem just might be “When Love Is Dying,” which throws the two singers into sweet relief over Brian Wilson’s heavenly choral arrangement.

Customer Reviews

He's Back!

I was a long time fan of Leon Russell and so enjoyed listening to EJ talk about Leon being his idol on Elvis Costello's show "Spectacle." This is a really nice collaboration. The more I listen to it, the more I like it. They're good together!

Real, Beautiful Music

EJ has said he's done with pop music, and I can't blame him. Though I love pop music, and will continue to (and miss EJ also in the 'pop scene'), he's right about so many acts nowadays being the same dull sound. With The Union, Elton is giving a huge thanks to one of his major early influences, Leon Russell, an amazing rock legend who has been all but forgotten...until now. What we have here is an amazing collaborative album, with actual MUSIC that is really a breath of fresh air. EJ says he only wants to make music like this for the rest of his life...well, I'll miss your pop Elton, but believe me, this is more than satisfactory.


This is not a pop album you will not hear a power pop tune like rocket man but you will hear a man who make music that he want to make and this album is really good!!!!

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Elton John was the biggest pop star of the '70s, grabbing headlines and generating hits throughout the world. As it turned out, this was merely the first act in a remarkable career that kept him at the top of the charts for over 25 years. He charted a Top 40 hit single every year between 1970 and 1996, a sign that he knew how to both change with the times and mold the times to fit him. Initially marketed as a singer/songwriter, John soon revealed he could craft Beatlesque pop and pound out rockers...
