4.0 out of 5 stars The soul of Elton 2 April 2007
By S J Buck TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This late 1989 album from Elton John marked the start of his rejuvenation after years of drugs and alcohol problems. Inside the sleeve notes you will find the following quote:

"These songs were inspired by the Soul pioneers of the Sixties and Seventies, whose music meant so much to us"

That pretty much sums up what this album is about and in some instances the influences are quite clear. For example "I never knew her name" is clearly inspired by Aretha Franklin, and is one of my favourite tracks on the album. Another favourite track of mine is "Club at the end of the street". This is a really catchy track, with some great backing vocal arrangements and a fabulous Sax solo. The track that seems to most represent a normal Elton John track is the last - "Blue Avenue" which is a great way to finish the album.

The album isn't perfect though. Overall the quality of the songs on this is as good as anything he produced in the 80's with the exception of "Too Low For Zero". However it is over-produced (as were nearly all records in the 80's). Still this was the start of Elton rebuilding his career and its a good album, that ultimately has lead back to "Songs from the West Coast" and "The Captain and the Kid"

5.0 out of 5 stars Elton at his best! 15 Sep 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album marked somewhat of a comeback for Elton John and although it is a late 1980s affair, harking back to sounds of the 60s, it still sounds fresh and exciting now in the 21st century.

The most recognisible track is of course the gentle "Sacrifice," but it's not all soothing balladry - Elton moves seamlessly into upbeat rock with the likes of "Healing Hands" and "The Club at the End of the Street." All in all a musical treat that is still as relevant as ever more than 20 years after it's first release.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely music 17 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had this CD when it first came out and played it for years and years. Then it disappeared and I was devastated! I was so pleased to be able to replace it as it brings back so many memories. One of Elton John's best albums without a doubt!

WOW! With a good ballad like SACRIFICE in it, you wouldn't expect rock-alls like HEALING HANDS or DANCING IN THE END ZONE(Cheers to that amazing drum roll at the beggining of END ZONE), with EJ's first solo no. 1, SACRIFICE is not the only highlight of the album, CLUB AT THE END OF THE STREET and HEALING HANDS are not to be missed either!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sleeping With the Past Review 9 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
Not one of Eltons greatest albums though it does contain his first British solo no.1 song Sacrifice. Being an Elton fan though, I have to say there are certainly great songs on here. Whispers is a mellow sound that you can relax too. Amazes Me is another good sounding song well worth listening to.
It also has Club at the End of the Street which Elton played at the Madison Square Consort back in October 2000. A nice fun tune.
Overall, worth adding to the collection but many would proceed it for quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Album great but second hand item 13 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This I thought was supposed to be a new CD but on playing the album it got stuck on track 3, on removal from my player and inspecting the CD found that it was scratch and had finger prints all over it.
The album was received wrapped as if it was brand new and can't remember it being sold as second hand.
