5.0 out of 5 stars Elton begins to return to 70's form Feb. 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
I've been an EJ fan since 1973. I pretty much gave up on him in the 80s - couldn't take the synthesizers drowning out him and his piano. When Made in England came out, I heard the first single "Believe", and said to myself, "Man, Elton is starting to be able to sing well again. But I just can't get into that adult contemporary sound he makes these days." I figured that he had decided that he was just an adult contemporary artist, not a rock and roller anymore. I think in many ways he had. Interviews in the early 90s have him talking about how rock is for young people, etc. Very different from the way he talks today!! Anyway, that attitude kept me from listening to him and I'm sorry now that I missed those years. But now, as I see it, he was beginning to grow out of the idea that all he could do was AC with this album. And I have grown to love it! He regressed a bit on The Big Picture in some ways, but then really committed to stop acting like an old geezer on Songs from the West Coast.
The album starts off with a couple of songs that are really pretty heavy on those AC production values (cheesy strings, overorchestration, etc.) and that can really put you off. Believe is not a bad song in many ways, but it was hard for me to get past the bombastic production of it at first. Then comes Made in England, which I love for the boyishly enthusiastic singing Elton does on it (his most spirited uptempo number since I'm Still Standing!) and the nice autobiographical touches in Bernie's lyrics. But production-wise it sounds a bit like a bad Billy Joel song, a la "We Didn't Start the Fire". Next is House, which has nice, evocative lyrics, and sweet Elton singing, but, again, schmaltzy, sweeping strings, etc.
But the second half of the album is not like that!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Soooooooooo Good June 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
Wow, does this CD bring back memories.
1995.
We had just purchased our first PC: a sturdy Hewlett-Packard Multimedia 6100 (with an eye-popping 24K memory). To my utter delight, I could listen to CD's on this wonderful 'chine while I went through the Windows 3.1 tutorials.
My daughter gave me Elton John's MADE IN ENGLAND, which I listened to--endlessly--as I played with my new toy.
I became more enamored with the music than the PC. Having always been an Elton John fan, I was overwhelmed by the overall quality of this album. The tracks were clean, crisp, dynamic, powerful, haunting--compelling songs, including "Believe," "House," and the wonderful "Made in England."
Through the infinite peaks and valleys of Elton John's career, MADE IN ENGLAND is perhaps the best effort from this talented artist (and his partner in crime, Bernie Taupin). This is good stuff, and you don't have to buy a new PC to appreciate it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent May 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
I really love this album and is one of my favorites of all time. It has some beautiful, haunting melodies, especially "Belfast," which never loses its poignancy no matter how many times you hear it. "Please" is a sweet but upbeat love song, and "Latitude" has some gorgeous imagery in it.
Of all of Elton John's albums, I feel this one is the most emotional. There is raw honesty underlying all of it and it's definitely worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great follow up to the Lion king Nov. 8 2003
Format:Audio CD
What a great CD!.This was Elton's follow up to the Lion King.It was recorded in a church with Elton and Taupin at their best in songwriting and Elton at his utmost in performing and creating.My favorites are Blessed,Latitude and House.The first single,Believe,takes Elton's voice to higher levels as he sings the wonderful Taupin lyrics.If you don't have it,you are missing a great gem in Elton's career.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Englishman's album made in England Dec 9 2003
Format:Audio CD
"This album was MADE IN ENGLAND(in 1994) just like me.(in 1947)". recalls Elton John in an interview shortly after this album was released in March 1995. All the other titles on this album are only one word. Isn't that interesting? Hits include the title track,BELIEVE and BLESSED. BELIEVE and BLESSED were later recycled for 1996's LOVE SONGS.
