Everbody who didn't buy this, missed out on the song Ticking. I wrote this review, because Amazon doesn't give you the chance to sample Ticking, and that is the song that pushes this album over into the "Buy" category. In that song, a desperate young man goes crazy with a gun and eventually gets shot by the police. A great song, as relevant today was when it was written.
What I have come to appreciate about Elton over the years is the variety of his catalog. Breaking up, getting back together, teenage angst, furry woodland creatures, sex, violence, rock & roll, Elton has it all covered.
