4.0 out of 5 stars Good album, average presentation, 25 Nov. 2004
This review is from: Peachtree Road (Audio CD)
Some things in your life never go away, the seasons, the weather and the ever present pop genius Elton John. You can paint your life around his magnificent melodies from the timeless 'Your Song', the grandeur of 'Funeral for a friend / love lies bleeding', 'Sacrifice'and even the little known 'I can't get over getting over losing you' and now his latest offering packed full of goodies....
Peachtree Road really picks up where the previous classic 'Songs from the West Coast' album left off and Reg quickly slips into style with the opener 'Weight of the world'. The following two tracks continue the high standard and similar tempo; 'Porch Siwing in Tupelo' and the next single (maybe) 'Answer in the Sky'. My favourite track follows 'Turn the lights out when you leave'. More melody and lyric wizardry from Bernie Taupin - superb. Other tracks follow similar patterns and tempos with the exception of the pacy 'They call her the cat' featuring the brass section from the American band Chicago. The first single 'All that I'm allowed' is one of those timeless Elton tracks; sheer brilliance and one of surely many future offerings that will ensure any Elton 'best of' is only really 'best of so far...'.
One must mention the reason for my not awarding five stars; it's really down to the packaging; some random photos (no picture of Elton even), no lyrics and a plain pink back sleeve and inner below where the disc houses are disappointing. Also, the lack of songs; Elton tucks away geat songs on his single releases these days (check out 'The North Star' from the 'Songs from...' sessions) and I would rather these were included here instead of a couple of videos in enhanced-CD format which misleadingly imply a track listing of fourteen.
Elton himself produced this album but it's the touching dedication to the late, great Gus Dudgeon and his wife Sheila, tragically killed a couple of years ago in a car accident that caught my eye.
