Performance:   Sonics:
A new album of ballads from Elton John? This is too good to be true. This new album from Elton John is a continuation of the great songwriting from his previous album "Songs from the West Coast". The lyrics are very reflective and mature and his singing is very emotional and heartfelt. Not every song on this album feels like a classic to me yet, but perhaps with more listenings, it will get better. For now, there are 5 standout songs that are "single" quality, although the rest are still better than, say, EJ's mid-80's output.

The sound is very similar to the SACDs of his older albums, which I've started to review. The sound is a little richer, as you would expect, but a little more diffused. I think the older albums had a more distinct tone for each instrument whereas on this album there's more of a blend.

I am thrilled that this was a day and date new release on SACD, and someone in the Elton John camp is clearly a fan of SACD, and that's great for us! (I'll fill this review out a little later.)

Performance:   Sonics:  
This hybrid disc sounds wonderful: warm, rich, dynamic, balanced—just very well done overall. Though some hate them, I really like the SACDs of EJ’s early catalog, with the exception of “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” which sounds gritty and compressed (I just ordered the Japanese SHM-SACD version, which I understand is much better.) But “Peachtree Road” is well executed. Someone in the studio was obviously paying attention.

And the music? Well, in my opinion it’s one of the best albums Elton has done in the last 25 years. His voice sounds warm and rich, and the melodies are his most indelible in a long time. I listen to this album a lot, and there’s a very good reason for it: it’s a modern-day EJ classic.

Performance:   Sonics:    
Elton John being one of my wife's favorite artists I too was introduced to this verstaile performer. This record is a must for any SACD owner. Sonics, songs and performance are all top notch and easily accessible even to the non-fans.
SACD really brings out the best this record has to offer, be it stereo or multi-channel. Another must-have disc.
