    yawn. C'mon Elton. A collection of forgettable tunes that is at least good for falling asleep. I expect classics from this dude not this drivel.

  1. Thanks to organic, piano-driven production, stellar storytelling and Sir's rededication to his vocal craft, this is a triumph.
  2. This really does pick up where John and lyricist Bernie Taupin left off.

    John's nimble piano work and supple singing dominate pretty-to-rollicking numbers that flow as effortlessly as the duo's musical/lyrical give-and-take. Yet the basic, smooth pop feels too genteel, with flashes of country, roadhouse rock and funk only hinting at John's legendary versatility. [18 Sep 2006]
