I Want Love, This Train Don't Stop, and American Triangle. Three excellent songs. The rest is ok, and there are a few duds. All in all, a welcome comeback by Elton and Bernie Taupin. The three songs mentioned above are definitely reminiscent of Elton's classic years but with slightly more modern production. These songs alone are worth owning this cd... especially if you're already a fan of his earlier work like "Madman Across the Water". If you're new to Sir Elton, you may want to start with his greatest hits and then start getting all his 70's albums. You won't regret it.

Tuesday 30th April 2002 was the date, and the Sydney Entertainment Centre was the venue. The Stage lid with enthusiasm, and the light show blew the crowd away, Yes! It was another fantastic live performance from Elton John, perhaps him at his best, now being free from many of his personal problems, from years ago. I bought this album on the night of the concert, and expected the same level of energy, but was somewhat disappointed.
Many of the songs were coloured with the feeling of "done this many times before", and lack something I couldn't really put my finger on. Was it the arrangements or the production?... I don't know, but it just wasn't there. I wouldn't right it off as a bad album, as all of the tracks come across with a easy middle of the road mood, which I like. Besides "I want love", and "This train don't stop here anymore", the rest of the album lacks any real attention grabbing moments, which were present in the days of "Victim of love", "21 at 33", "The fox", "Jump up", "Too low for zero", "Breaking hearts", "Ice on fire", "Leather jackets", "Reg strikes back", and "Sleeping with the past".

Elton JOhn is the ultimate pop singer.This work only reinforces such status.The tracks on this album seem to be taken from MADMAN ACROSS THE WATER and DON'T SHOOT ME....They take you back to the 70's Elton we came to worship.My favorites are ORIGINAL SIN,I WANT LOVE and THE BALLAD OF THE BOY IN THE RED SHOES.The ode to Matt Sheppard,AMERICAN TRIANGLE,finds EJ with Rufus Wainwright in a beautiful tribute while THE EMPEROR's..
seems to be a sequel to CAPTAIN FANTASTIC.Overall, an excellent CD.

Seriously, this album is heading towards mediocre. I really like 'Mansfield' and 'Original sin'. Actually I really like half the songs, the others are 'Ballad of the boy in red shoes', which wouldn't be out of place on Madman across the water, and escpecially 'Look man no hands', 'love her like me' and 'Birds'. 'Birds' and 'Love her like me' are both slightly rockers and 'Look man no hands' does rock. But this is being raved as the best in twenty five years. How can it be. I don't think this album is as good as 'The Fox' or 'The One' or 'Breaking Hearts'. It doesn't rock, it doesn't have much variety. Not one single song is energetic, at least 'Big Picture' had 'Wicked dreams' and 'El Dorado' has the excellent '16th centruy man'. He started sounding flat sometime around Big Pciture and El Dorado was even worse so this is a step forward, but when the main theme is dull and depressing I have to wonder how good this album can be. I find lyrics like 'Dark Diamond' and 'Wasteland' very unenjoyable. Now if this album was recorded in 1974 who'd care?

After the mid-1970s, Elton John's superstar days diminished in a litany of personal problems, addictions, and insecurities that effectively rendered his glory days over. His commercial successes still continued along virtually unabated, but after 1976's double album BLUE MOVES, the majority of Elton's albums were hit-and-miss affairs with some occasional glimmers of brilliance, but more than a few amounts of coasting. But at the start of the 1990s, Elton finally cleaned up his life and got back on the ball creatively for the most part. However, in the rush to re-establish his commercial dominance, the genius that had characterized his early works had been soft-pedaled. Then at the start of the new millennium, Elton & his lyricist Bernie Taupin (who Elton had worked with only sparingly throughout the '90s) were essentially reborn thanks to 2001's SONGS FROM THE WEST COAST.
While to claim it as one of Elton's all-time best would be a rush to judgement, it's still nonetheless astounding that with SONGS, Elton finally tried his hardest to create another masterpiece like his early '70s music, using the same intelligent songwriting that was reminiscent of TUMBLEWEED CONNECTION and CAPTAIN FANTASTIC, along with getting back behind his piano on a larger basis than before. The only thing that is different is that Elton's voice is now deeper than it was in the early days, owing perhaps to age or the long-lasting signs of his addictions. But it's a voice of experience nonetheless, and SONGS shows just how far Elton has come after 3 decades of celebrity.
The first single "I Want Love" was hailed as Elton's finest in almost 20 years, and this John Lennon-inspired ballad is certainly worthy of that honor.
