'Songs From The West Coast' displays a significant transition from Elton's last successful album 'The Big Picture'. He has returned, as we have heard, to his 'roots', which has produced an album of twelve magnificent tracks. Elton sings each with an intense passion, it is evident that much meaning is imbedded in the lyrics, produced by the magnificent 'Elton and Taupin' team. This working talent is exhibited particularly in the song 'Original Sin' which is one of my favourite tracks. The melody is simply beautiful, it is a song which can be listened to repeatedly without becoming tireless. This is echoed in 'Ballad of The Boy in The Red Shoes', a harmonious song which is simply striking, sung in its lamenting tone and uncomplicated sounds. It is fabulous.
Then who could forget this year's (in my opinion) unsurpassed chart success despite not entering at number one, 'I Want Love', a stunning love song coupled with a great video starring Robert Downy Jr ?
This album offers a range of sounds which display Elton's voice and piano skills at their best. Listening to the album in its entirety will provide you with an immense satisfaction, it is well worth the purchase and a 'must' for any person's CD collection, whether young or old. It is true, 'This Train Don't Stop Here Anymore'...

This Limited Edition -Songs from the West Coast with Bonus CD, is definately one for the Elton John collector.
Songs from the West Coast is the excellent album released earlier this year containing many now familiar tracks, including the three singlesreleased over the last few months.
The Bonus CD is an outstanding addition to this album.
Track One is the Sport Relief version of "Your Song" with Alessandro Safina, this is the wonderful classic song with powerful vocals by the singers.
Track Two "Teardrops" sung with Lulu is an outstanding track, and one which, for me makes this Bonus CD a "must have".
Track Three "The North Star" perfomed by Elton, was the second track on one of the "I Want Love" single CDs and it is such a good track I wonder why it was not included on the album.
Track Four is "Original Sin" Juniors Earth Mix,(one of the best tracks on "Songs from the West Coast") with vocals by Elton but a new upbeat mix on the backing. Another outstanding track.
Track Five is "Your Song" Almighty Mix based on the Sport Relief version, this more modern upbeat mix sound is at least as good as the actual Sport Relief one.
The CD then contains the three most recent of Elton's videos "I Want Love", "This Train don't Stop Anymore" and "Your Song". The videos have been shown on TV many times, and are quite familiar, however to have them altogether on one CD is exciting.
Overall this is an excellent package and well worth buying.

In the Seventies Elton John ruled the air waves and charts all across the globe. He was the most successful artist of the decade breaking record after record, had seven consecutive no.1 US albums (including the first ever LP to go straight in at no.1), and even overtook the achievements stacked up by the Beatles. Since then, EJ has had a top 40 hit in both the UK and US for 30yrs on the trot whilst amassing loads of awards. HOWEVER, during the Eighties and Ninties his music has been lazy - there were defiantely big successes, but also big failures. Over the past two decades, Elton's fame and misfortune has over-shadowed his Seventies supremecy that formed him into a music legend. But now, Elton has woken up. Elton has got serious again, is making serious music and craves the recognition he deserves. In his own words, he has "drawn a line in the sand" - his new album, and all material to follow will have 100% effort. Hence, "Songs From The West Coast", his brilliant new album.
Overall, the album has an organic raw feel - driven by piano, guitar and drums - no synthesisers. Although Elton can't sing as well as his earlier years, this is unquestionably his best vocal performance on a studio album for a decade. His voice easily swirls warmly through touching melodies, belts out the rocky blues and breathes emotion into Taupins passionate lyrics. Every song has a memorable, strong melody that effortlessly matches some of Taupins best lyrics ever (timeless storytelling, heartfelt love songs . . .)
Make no mistake, this is NOT a ballad album. A variety of styles from blues to country are spread across this classic rock album which together flow beautifully.

It's been a long time in waiting but Elton and Bernie has come up with an entire masterpiece of an album..
I have been a fan of Elton John ever since the days of Reg Dwight when he played with Long John Baldry back in the sixties.
"Songs from the west coast" is a throwback from the triumphant days of the 70's, in particular the "Tumbleweed Connection, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and my personal favourite from that era Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy"..
Elton went through a very rough patch during the 80's and 90's, he brought some decent material out but nothing could match what has come out from this album, the words, the harmonies, and most of all Elton's mature and warmth is all there to be heard, the tracks that stand out especially for me are as follows:
THE EMPERORS NEW CLOTHES.
This sets the standard and while Elton cannot seem to hit the high notes as he did in the past, he has aquired a new blend of deepness in his golden tonsils.
ORIGINAL SIN
This is an absolute classic in the making, it took a few listens before I got into it but now each time I hear it you listen to Bernies wonderful lyrics and Eltons feelings coming out and you just nod your head in admiration of singer and composer in perfect harmony..
THE BALLAD OF THE BOY IN THE RED SHOES
When you take into account the controversial subject what Elton is singing about in this song, this could well be the next single off the album but is very much more likely to do better in the US rather than the UK.
Once again this could well turn out to be a classic in years to come, the lyrics and infectious chorus makes this track stand out for me..
