This album would rank well down in my list of favourites that I have put up. But I stil really like it. It reminded me of Reg Strikes back and [dare I say it] Victim of love when I first heard it because it had the same goofy charm of those albums. They are lovable silly albums that often come off as a lot of fun. Unpopularly, after 'Stinker' and 'I've seen the saucers' my favourite song would be 'Solar prestige A Gammon', it's so goofy you have to smile as soon as you hear Elton's fake Italian voice. Don't let the sun go down on me is quite a dramatic ballad. Also along with '21 AT 33', 'Ice on fire' and perhaps 'Don't shoot me ...' it is a jazz attempt, with a lot of brass. Though it is more in the vein of brass rock. I thought 'Pinky' was very beautiful and of-course 'Grimsby' I thought was cool. I know that word can mean anything but the way the guitar sounds, the tune, the lyrics ... 'Ticking' is a clever, dark piece and shows Taupin way ahead of his time, predicting the down-sides of obsession with a Religion. I think this song proves him a genius. And of-course, 'The B is back' rocks, so this deserves 5 stars.
