Product Description

Product Description

'Peachtree Road', Elton John's 2004 studio album easily rivals the best work of his illustrious career. The album features 12 brand new Elton John and Bernie Taupin songs, including the sublime first single, `All That Im Allowed (I'm Thankful)' out November 1st. `Peachtree Road' was recorded in Atlanta and produced for the first time by Elton John himself. As the name suggests, `Peachtree Road' is heavily influenced by the sound of the American South, at times incorporating a choir, pedal steel, acoustic guitar as well as his trademark, piano virtuosity. The album has an irrepressible live quality and follows the acclaimed multi-platinum,`Songs From the West Coast' released in 2002. Universal. 2004.

It's relatively easy to launch a comeback. It's far harder to maintain one. The follow-up to 2001's warmly received (by critics, anyway) Songs from the West Coast indicates Elton John is committed to following through on his late career critical renaissance. Entirely self-produced and featuring his trusty band on each song (and have any sidemen been more stalwart than Davey Johnstone and Nigel Olsson?), Peachtree Road's noble ambitions aren't entirely realized. Starting strong with the telling "Weight of the World" ("Happy to play with the weight of the world off my back") and Americana-flavored "Porch Swing in Tupelo," the 12-song set loses momentum as it progresses. Overproduction rears its glitzy head most egregiously in "All That I'm Allowed." Still, the young Elton John who took the singer-songwriter movement to new heights in the early '70s with the likes of Tumbleweed Connection and Honky Chateau is in evidence on Peachtree Road. He's laid the groundwork to totally throw caution to the wind and make a truly great album. Next time, perhaps? --Steven Stolder

By Paul Todd on Jan. 11 2005
Format: Audio CD
This album is amazing. It takes me back to those early Elton albums, with hints of EJ, Madman, GYBR, Captain F, etc, etc. I'd missed those lyrics and those tunes, and Elton's rich rythmn and blues vocals come through again, not to mention his sardonic twist on the Country theme. A welcome return from the wilderness of otherness that plagued him for so long. Worth every penny, and I've played it over and over and over and... Get the message?

To put it simply, this is a fantastic album. Elton John puts raw enthusiasm into each song. This isn't exactly a 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' album because of the absence of rockish songs but this is the kind of music one can easily get into. A few of my personal favourites from this CD are: 'Turn Out The Lights When You Leave', 'My Elusive Drug' and 'Freaks In Love'.
This album is necessary for any Elton John fan.

I am unsure of what Elton is doing with this record. The songs are all very nice ballads, but the album lacks any enthusiasm. There are no songs that could be called a "rocker", just a bunch of nice songs of which not one really stands out except for maybe Porch Swing In Tupelo.

This is the type of Elton John album you want to listen to over, and over again. It has the class and style of Elton John at his finest. You will still be listening to this album 20 years from now.
