In my opinion that was the last truly great album Elton John ever produced.
From to he almost did no wrong. Can't wait to hear the album echo in our home this afternoon. Thanks Bruce. Captian Fantastic and Bosch the little birdmen created by both Bosch little Birdman carring what looks like a a spear or pike and marching along of the treemans hat. Thanks for that. I believe the same artist designed the White Album cover. Talk about range. I agree it was the last classic Elton album.
My favorite being Tumbleweed connection. The first side of Madman was their finest hour. Reg's elton's music arrangement and playing is one thing, but how can somebody actually pen 'where were all you shoulder's when we cried', 'sat on the roof and kicked off some moss'. I mean, this guy is incredible.
Sitting atop the charts in , Elton John and Bernie Taupin recalled their rise to power in Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy , their first explicitly conceptual effort since Tumbleweed Connection. It's no coincidence that it's their best album since then, showcasing each at the peak of his power, as John crafts supple, elastic, versatile pop and Taupin 's inscrutable wordplay is evocative, even moving.
What's best about the record is that it works best of a piece -- although it entered the charts at number one, this only had one huge hit in "Someone Saved My Life Tonight," which sounds even better here, since it tidily fits into the musical and lyrical themes. And although the musical skill on display here is dazzling, as it bounces between country and hard rock within the same song, this is certainly a grower.
The album needs time to reveal its treasures, but once it does, it rivals Tumbleweed in terms of sheer consistency and eclipses it in scope, capturing John and Taupin at a pinnacle.
