5.0 out of 5 stars Number One on both sides of the atlantic - not for nothing!, 20 Jun 2004
This review is from: Caribou (Audio CD)
From what seemed to have made 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' Elton's Best album to date, 'Caribou' Certainly had what it takes, the album, when released in 1974, was a absolute Monster, selling over one million copies in the UK alone. The tracks are as follows:
The Bitch Is Back - A classic Rocker that could have been by the rolling stones, with a catchy chorus
Track two is called 'Pinky'. A beautiful love track with a clarinet in the background, the song is a winner, but is not very famous.
The follow up is 'Grimsby', an out-of-the-blue rock track about the town in the north of England, with recognisable backing vocals
'Dixie Lily' is a country/rock style track with a banjo played by the legendary Davey Johnstone.
'Solar Prestige A Gammon' is a somewhat Latin-influenced track with lyrics that make absolutely no sense atall, and cannot be translated into proper english
Youre So Static reminds me of 'Midnight Creeper' from the 'Don't Shoot Me' album, it is a track about New York City
I've Seen The Saucers is self explanitory, really.
Stinker is Elton at his Rock 'n' Roll Best, with good guitar riffs and a brass section
The standout track is 'Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me'. Not my favourite of his songs, but everyone else likes it. Again, it has a brass section.
The Finale of thee original album is an underestimated track tat tells a story. 'Ticking' is the only solo track on the album, and is a seven minute plus track.
The Who's 'Pinball Wizard' is the first of the bonus tracks, which has had bits added on, but is better than the original, any Who fans out there.
Sick City, is a rocker (if somewhat dirty, in my opinion), which was the b side to 'Don't Let The Sun...'.
'Cold Highway' is another rocker, which whas probably so to match the style of it's A side: 'The Bitch Is Back'
Thi closing track is the ever popular 'Step Into Christmas', the rocky phil-spectorish track which makes you feel the snow falling, but you've all probably heard it
