Cari', Cariboooou, Cari', Cariboooou

Yet another gem from the man himself: Elton John. Caribou was the first album to be recorded in Caribou Ranch, Colorado hence the title. The albums only hit and very fitting opening number, 'The Bitch is Back' is one of Eltons greatest hits. The sublime 'Pinky' is a song of true emotion as is 'I have seen the saucers' a delightful and intelligently written mid-tempo ballad with unusual sounds used to create t a sense of another world. The rest of the tracks on this album are notable in their right but by far the albums best track is the curious 'Solar Prestige a Gammon' a song which i have on constant loop. The nonsense lyrics give a depth of feeling beyond that which can be expressed in words and the humourous tale of the birth of the song, as told in the album sleeve, makes you love this song even more.
