My interest in this album was due to Elton John's haunting yes convicted "Indian Sunset"

He has a passion and a vision that matches my own.

Love love LOVE it!

When I was 13 years-old,I saved my pocket-money to buy something new,maybe I wanted to make sure of that I finished my childhood.then I went to a record shop,chose this casually,
only for reason why the jacket of bluejean was cool for me at that time.but the choice was one of the best that I have made. the player`s needle putted on the vinyldisc and played the introduction of piano,only a few sound of piano washed my childish taste in music off. that pure sound showed me the way to quality music. 30 years passed, my disc was lost but the sound is alive in my mind and I still adore it.

Excellent music and excellent sound quality. If you care about these two things, get yourself some SACDs and something to play them on. Many Playstation 3 units before the most recent ones will work (check to be sure though) and most if not all of the latest Sony Blu-Ray players work too (i.e. the 2010 models just released). SACD is awesome technology for music lovers especially jazz and classical for which there are a lot of releases every month. Enjoy!

EJ got a lot of people to notice after this one. This album was produced before he got really big..before Yellow Brick Road, but it shows the raw talent that the man had to be one of the world's best ever pop stars!
Title track, "Levon" and "Razor Face" are the best songs on the CD.

This recording is one of the must have John/Taupin collaborations! There really isn't a bad track. The musicianship and orchestrations are outstanding, and Elton's voice is strong and works well on the material, which is also some of Taupin's best!

My favourites from this were 'Indian Sunset', 'Holiday Inn', 'All the nasties' and 'Madman across the water'. This album is so serious and serious sounding. At times I find it boring but honestly I find most of the album to be breath-taking. Those strings really are excellent. 'Indian sunset' an ode to Native Americans, is wonderful with it's classical music style of ever changing volume and the way Elton sings it is spot on. All the nasties is up there with it. The guitaring on 'Holiday Inn' was wonderful and then the title track is the only rocker on the album. 'Tiny Dancer' is the most romantic sounding song and I really like it too. Rotten Peaches is alrgiht, it's about some guy in jail. Levon doesn't really set me on fire, and I have no idea what it's about, perhaps a sling at Religion? 'Razor face' isn't anything exciting for me but it is an intruiging lyric and I don't min the accordion either. But who is Razor Face? With all the Biblical references I thought it migth be a mockery of a returned Jesus but it's probably most likely an old man they met in rural America. I could say the same fro 'Goodbye', which says it a lot in a little time. Anyway a few greats and a few songs that are serious if not boring, thankfully he pulled something as lovable as 'Hinky Cat' out of the bag!

My mother LOVED Elton John, and this album in particular. My memories of her are so wrapped up with Elton's music that I can hardly separate the two. I remember the songs from "Madman Across the Water" like it was yesterday, even though I was just a kid when it was originally released.
I realize now what great collaborative artists Elton John and Bernie Taupin back then (and at such young ages!)
I'm buying this album, but I won't be playing it too often. To hear it is to have my mother singing along with Elton in my head and that is sweet, but painful. She's been gone for so long now, you'd think those bittersweet memories would fade. But they don't, really. I wonder what would have become of her if she hadn't killed herself in January of 1979. It's too bad. She could have enjoyed some excellent music by Elton in the years after her death.
