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!!!!
