Elton & Bernie....Back on Track...,
This review is from: Peachtree Road (Audio CD)
I wasn't sure how to approach this album. After the pleasant surprise of "Songs from the West Coast" how would Elton follow it? Would quality control be very much on board or would it be time to "get me leather jacket?!" I'm pleased to say that Elton has built on the successful formula used on .."West Coast.." "Peachtree Road" finds Elton in mellow mood and almost back where he began. This time though, a lot of ground has been covered. Some of the songs here remind me of the "Friends" soundtrack, and the marvellous work that immediately followed. This is the one he should have made a long time ago before tantrums and whatever got in the way. "Peachtree Road" redresses the balance back to Elton John..musician rather than celeb. Well done!!
