Album Review

The past Elton John has in mind is the era of soul music of the mid-'60s to the mid-'70s, and although all the songs are new, he re-creates the period well here. The album's most notable selection is the ballad "Sacrifice," which, amazingly, became his first-ever number-one hit in the U.K. [The Polygram International edition features two bonus tracks, "Dancing in the End Zone" and "Love is a Cannibal."]

Customer Reviews

An under-appreciated album

Those who say that Elton John hasn't had any good albums since the 70's ought to have a listen to this album, his last of the 80's, and very possibly his finest in that period (though Too Low For Zero is also excellent). From the opening reggae-pop beat of Durban Deep to the final haunting Blue Avenue, this album has no real weak spots and successfully recreates the soul music of years gone by, and yet at the same updating it nicely. Sacrifice is the obvious hit here, a UK number one of course, but it is the rocking soul song Healing Hands that is the stand out track. In my opinion, this is Elton's finest forgotten track. Club at the End of the Street is also very good, very Drifters-esque. The only really forgettable track is I Never Knew Her Name, which is just a standad Elton-by-numbers tune, but I suppose it's quite catchy. Check this album out if you think Elton hasn't had any good albums since the 70s, you may be very surprised.

not to be missed

Bought this album in the 80 s and having been a fan of Sir Elton for a lifetime, this is without doubt one of the very best albums in his repertoire. Gutsy music, includes excellent balance of rock and ballads, and of course, nothing can beat the underplayed Healing Hands, fantastic.BUY IT You wont be disappointed

In terms of sales and lasting popularity, Elton John was the biggest pop superstar of the early '70s. Initially marketed as a singer/songwriter, John soon revealed he could craft Beatlesque pop and pound out rockers with equal aplomb. He could dip into soul, disco, and country, as well as classic pop balladry and even progressive rock. His versatility, combined with his effortless melodic skills, dynamic charisma, and flamboyant stage shows, made him the most popular recording artist of the '70s....
