5.0 out of 5 stars 40th Anniversary Edition 25 Mar 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Unquestionably a five star album, we should all know by now just how good it is. Obviously some of Elton's finest work on the labum, Funeral For A Friend/Love Lies Bleeding is an epic song worthy of inclusion on any classic rock list and this lengthy double album just rolls out great song after great song. Some people claim some tracks on this album are just 'fillers' which is complete nonsense. The album flows beautifully and a particular favourite moment comes when Your Sistser Can't Twist blasts straight into Saturday Night's Alright. Just brilliant.

Anyway, this 40th Anniversary edition has been nicely remastered (and while not in this package the new vinyls also sound fab) and comes beeutifully presented in a VHS kinda sized box, with a glorious hardback book. The CDs and DVD are all in slim card sleeves with nice artwork for each. Great to have the 70s docu on DVD and the Live discs are fantastic. The only downside to the bonus content is the revisited section, most of the covers are distinctively average at best with only John Grant, Imelda May and the Zac Brown Band standing out, struggled to listen to the rest. However the other bonus material on this disc is great concluding with Elton's brilliant version of The Who's Pinball Wizard. All in all a fantastic package commemoration 40 years of a true classic album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Elton's Versitility Shines 13 April 2007
By Jervis VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
While it is possible to argue that there are perhaps a couple of Elton John albums which may rival (or even better) 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' in terms of song quality, there aren't any that have managed to match it in stylistic range. In other words 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' successfully manages to encompass every facet of Elton's musical styles in a double album package that is sharp and bright in tone with enough variety to never seem boring. It also makes a strong case against those who feel Elton's forte is in being a bland balladeer.
Rock 'n' roll - ' Your Sister Can't Twist ..', 'Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting', reggae - 'Jamaica Jerk Off', and soul - 'Bennie And The Jets', sits perfectly alongside Elton's more traditional ballads such as the well known 'Candle In The Wind' and 'Harmony' in an album that works on every level.
Bernie Taupin's lyrics are also varied in terms of theme ranging from his tribute to Marilyn Monroe - 'Candle In The Wind', prostitution - 'Sweet Painted Lady', cowboys - 'Roy Rogers', the film 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' and the unusual, futuristic 'Bennie And The Jets'.
Not every song is prime Elton though - 'Social Disease' and 'All The Girls Love Alice' aren't particularly striking but to be fair they're not exactly bad either.
Versitility is the key to the greatness of 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road', whether musically, lyrically and also in Elton's vocal performance. In fact it's refreshing to hear what a really fine and versitile voice Elton had in his youth and it's an album like this that blows away any hint of the personality driven Elton in more recent years who's forte when he does record tends to be more often than not, boring and overblown ballads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant absolutely brilliant 27 Mar 2014
Format:Blu-ray Audio|Verified Purchase
Just got this at 14 ish as I ordered it early. Its in 5.1 and the sound is amazing. I have loved this album since my brother used to play it on cassette on his mono cassette player under his pillow till we fell asleep, he also played it on his record player.
I bought it on all formats when I left home and now on bluray audio format which if you have 5.1 you will hear things you have never heard before. A must to get. You will not be dissapointed at all.
Tried to let people know what it sounds like, not great like this but it is a great sound when your in the room.

5.0 out of 5 stars An instant classic, no style left unturned! 18 Jan 2002
Format:Audio CD
It's rare to find an album, let alone a double album, where one cannot find a bad track but Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is that album. From the sweeping and atmospheric 'Funeral for a Friend' to the heartbreaking 'Harmony' (it was special to me way back in the 70's!) via 'Roy Rogers' cod country (check out Eltons twang!)and the rocky little 'Your Sister can't twist' and 'Dirty Little Girl' all the bases are covered, no style left unturned. Even if I wasn't such a fan (and I own EJ albums that only his mum bought!)this one would be in my collection. It should be in yours.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Timeless Classic ! 21 Sep 2006
Format:Audio CD
One of the very first albums I ever purchased, when still a young whippersnapper ! And still a regular on my playlist.Elton really rocked back then, his voice could comfortably hit those high notes that are so familiar to him.The singer/songwriter partnership with Bernie Taupin is one of the all time great combos in my opinion.Elton seems to be able to go from pulsey rock to slow, melodic tunes with ease. This album has them all, from the outstanding "Funeral for a friend/Love lies bleeding that kicks the album off to beautiful slowies such as "Candle in the wind " and "I've seen that movie too".If you've never heard this album (which I doubt !),then do yourself a favour and go buy it !

5.0 out of 5 stars The best one! 27 May 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Other reviewers select Bennie and Candle, but this starts so well with Funeral for a friend that all the songs seem brilliant. Grey Seal, a redo from earlier times is excellent as is Dirty little girl. Of course this is the album that gave us Saturday Night's Alright for fighting, so why wait for any more recommendation! The CD doesn't feel like the original double album. If you can then find one and buy it just for the pictures, but buy the CD for the sound quality. I'v'e been listening to this album since it came out and it often surprises me with new detail.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still great but stick to Stereo versions.
I purchased this for the Bluray sound option. To be honest 5.1 confuses the sound and I think this is best heard in Stereo. Read more
