It was viewed by Rolling Stone writer Jon Landau as the best track on the album: "As long as Elton John can bring forth one performance per album on the order of 'Someone Saved My Life Tonight', the chance remains that he will become something more than the great entertainer he already is and go on to make a lasting contribution to rock.

In a interview with Cameron Crowe , John said, "I've always thought that Captain Fantastic was probably my finest album because it wasn't commercial in any way. We did have songs such as 'Someone Saved My Life Tonight,' which is one of the best songs that Bernie and I have ever written together, but whether a song like that could be a single these days, since it's [more than] six minutes long, is questionable.

Captain Fantastic was written from start to finish in running order, as a kind of story about coming to terms with failure—or trying desperately not to be one. We lived that story. John, Taupin and the band laboured harder and longer on the album than perhaps any previous record they'd ever done to that point. As opposed to the rather quick, almost factory-like process of writing and recording an album in a matter of a few days or at most a couple of weeks as with Goodbye Yellow Brick Road , the team spent the better part of a month off the road at Caribou Ranch Studios working on the recordings.

Producer Gus Dudgeon was apparently also very satisfied with the results. The album's producer was quoted in Elizabeth Rosenthal's His Song , an exhaustive detailed accounting of nearly all John's recorded work, as saying he thought Captain Fantastic was the best the band and Elton had ever played, lauded their vocal work, and soundly praised Elton and Bernie's songwriting.

The album sold poorly. The intricate cover art was designed by pop artist Alan Aldridge , drawing fantastic imagery from the Renaissance painting The Garden of Earthly Delights by Hieronymus Bosch.

The original LP also contained a poster of the album's cover. In , Bally released a Capt. Fantastic pinball machine with artwork by Dave Christensen of Elton John in his "pinball wizard" character from the movie Tommy. In , Bally released a "home model" version with artwork by Alan Aldridge. In , the album was ranked on Rolling Stone magazine's list of The Greatest Albums of All Time , maintaining the rating in a revised list.

A deluxe 30th anniversary edition CD was released September , containing the complete album and adding "House of Cards", the original B-side to the 7" single of " Someone Saved My Life Tonight ", which had previously only appeared on CD on the Rare Masters collection.

Also included is a second disc containing the complete album performed live at Wembley Stadium on 21 June In September , Elton John and his band again performed the entire album minus "Tower of Babel" and "Writing" in a series of sold-out concerts in Boston , New York City and the tour's final stop, Atlanta , in October.

These "Captain Fantastic Concerts" were a part of the Peachtree Road Tour and were the longest concerts in Elton's career, many lasting at least three and a half hours.
