... Samantha days but I think this album is the worst one that he has written
on 4 September 2016
I have been an Elton John fan since his Lady Samantha days but I think this album is the worst one that he has written. The songs sound so much like many other songs on his recent releases. There are only a couple of half decent tracks. I think he needs to spend more time writing the melody than just jamming something out in the studio.
Elton has written some tremendous songs in the past & I have seen him many times on toor but he needs to get back to his Too Low For Zero type songs...Sorry Elton.
The new album, Wonderful Crazy Night is a bit better but I think that is because he is with his band.
