Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (MP3 Download)
Having purchased this album for nostalgic reasons (big favourite of an early love), I confess I was disappointed.

GYBR hasn't worn well, save for the few landmark tracks such as Candle and Saturday's All Right, maybe Grey Seal. Most of the rest now sound indulgent, over-produced, and under-written. A real falling back from Tumbleweed and Honky. I guess the temptation to produce a double album at this high point of his early career was too great for EJ to resist, but in truth there is barely enough worthwhile material for a single album.

One thing as not changed though - I loathed the cover design then, and I loathe it now. Ah well. Never go back.

You buy an album because of the love SOMEONE ELSE had for it? This says that you never really liked it anyway, you plod!!

BBC on line, 24 March 2014 -

"Over a two-week recording binge, it grew from a single to a double album..."

I always suspected as much, and now rest my case.
