Customer Review

on 11 September 2005
I own a lot of Elton's albums and this one is clearly the best one he released in the 1980's. The vitriolic review by mrmrtaylor is completely unjustified - the only weak track here, IMHO, is "Princess" - a sugary dull ballad that does make you squirm a bit to say the least! A shame that one track prevents me from giving the album top marks, because this album has been generally been criminally ignored by too many people out there. Considering the early-to-mid 80's were Elton's "low point", it's surprising to see a quality album like this turn up in the midst of his supposed creative trough.
What's disappointing is that some great numbers like "Empty garden (hey hey Johnny)" (a fantastic mournful ballad - think "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road") and the catchy "Where Have All The Good Times Gone" never feature in any Elton John compilations - instead we get dross like "Passengers" and, yes, the terminally dull "Sacrifice" instead.
Ignore what the naysayers are spouting - this album is definitely one worth buying.
