Format: Audio CD
Some famous people write autobiographies, while some put their life stories into music and lyrics. Subscribing to the latter mind-set, Elton John and Bernie Taupin come together with a follow up to "Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy" (1975), showcasing their nearly forty years together as songwriters.

Seeing the time that has elapsed since then, it seems that we're not getting the whole story, as this album only has ten tracks, but the music is classic Sir Elton, and that's good enough for me.

Tracks to look for are the time capsule-like "Postcards from Richard Nixon"; the honky-tonk "Just Like Noah's Ark"; "Wouldn't Have You Any Other Way (NYC)" (with its "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road/Goodbye Norma Jean" style intro); the poignant "Blues Never Fade Away" and "The Bridge", reportedly and deservedly the first single from the album. For a little cowboy twang, you can try "I Must Have Lost it on the Wind" (I like this one) and the big light pop finale "The Captain and the Kid".

A must-buy for any Elton John fan on your list, and a collector's item, as you've never before seen Bernie Taupin with Elton John on an album cover.

When you buy an Elton John album, you usually have a pretty good idea of what you're going to get : vintage singer-songwriter, piano-based, melodic pop-rock, flawlessly produced and performed, delivered with a voice that has lost none of its emotional power in spite of the passage of time. You know that there will be a couple of radio-friendly tunes, one or two big ballads, and that the rest will be pleasant filler - nothing to go crazy about, but nothing to keep you from buying his next album either.

Maybe this is why Elton's new album, "The Captain and the Kid", is such a wonderful surprise : it really is good from top to bottom, with no filler or second-rate material. The album, meant as a sequel to his classic "Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy", is an introspective and often biting comment on the road followed by Elton John and longtime writing partner Bernie Taupin. The songs also sport some of Elton's strongest melodies in years; from the catchy opener "Postcards from Richard Nixon" (featuring a killer piano intro) to the gently swinging title track that closes the album, each tune has a distinct identity and something to say. There are many highlights on the album; the debut single "The bridge", is especially moving and one of Elton's best ballads in ages. Elsewhere, songs like "I must have lost it on the wind", "Wouldn't have you any other way", the title track, "Postcards from Richard Nixon", "Old 67" and "Blues are never gone" are equally fantastic. He even throws in a couple of convincing rockers with "And the house fell down" and "Just like Noah's ark", both of which will certainly sound great on his upcoming world tour.

So Elton John hasn't reinvented himself or the face of contemporary pop music.

Elton John's The Captain and the Kid is one of the best albums from Elton John. The first single, the Bridge is a beautifully crafted ballad. 5. And The House Fell Down, Blues Never Fade Away, I Must Have Lost It On The Wind are three of the best songs on the album.

Another classic album from a legendary singer!!

I just saw Elton John on Jay Leno and he sang "Blues Never Fade Away". It sounded great! It was soulful. The boys in the band including Nigel and Davey, didn't have much to sing, just accompanying "OOOh's" but it was still great. I have 98% of Elton's albums & CD's, and will certainly get this CD, too. The first album I ever got of Elton was "Don't Shoot Me..." when it first came out and I have loved him ever since. Elton and Bernie are a perfect song writing duo, if not better than Lennon/McCartney. I rate this album a 5 even after only hearing one song.

If you loved Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, you'll love this one too! What a brilliant idea to add another album as the "Part Two" version of the first album in history to appear at number 1 as soon as it was released. Since 1967 we have seen Elton "Hercules" John blossom into a superstar. Hit after hit after hit. The first time I saw him in concert was in 1982. I wondered how he was going to fit all his hits in 2+ hours. He didn't disappoint me: he not only sang his greatest tunes but he also included hits by other artists. Now here we are 26 years later and he's still churnin' them out -- one hit after the other. At that time I was amazed at the audience demographics: from children on their father's shoulders to 30, 40 and 50 year-olds. Yes, he's a genius. Just think, he wanted to be an accountant (His real name: Reginald Dwight C.A.). Now he's really record keeping. I had the pleasure of meeting him in 1976 in downtown Toronto when he was recording the album, "Blue Moves" (with "Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word", "Don't Go Breaking my Heart, "Tonight" and more). I gave up Rock and Roll in 1986, but I never gave up on him. I'm always looking forward to the next album - all I can say is "Get it now". Listen to the genius who put Bernie Taupin's lyrics/poems to music. "Island Girl" (7 weeks at number 1) took him only 20 minutes to compose. He could turn your Income Tax form into a hit. Sincerely, Charles, ChurchMouse.Bz.
