5.0 out of 5 stars Back from Nowhere Aug. 19 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
As an Elton fan from 1970, I had been dismayed by some of his efforts in the late 70's and early 80's. I was, to be truthful, worried about him. His music wasn't focussed. Later, I learned that this period was one of personal difficulty for Elton. When I first heard "Too Low For Zero", I was elated. The fog had lifted. He was through the troubles, whatever they were. You only need listen to this album to hear the renewed strength in the man. History records that he never looked back. Bless him for his journey. It wasn't easy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mid 80's glory Oct. 16 2003
Format:Audio CD
The title track and 'Crystal' are first class up-tempo new-age music. Then of-course there is the classic ballad, 'I guess that's why they call it the blues' with a real homely atmosphere which is enhanced by backing vocalists and Stevie Wonder's harmonica. 'Kiss the bride', 'Whipping boy' and 'I'm still standing' all rock and that last one is the best of the rockers. 'Cold as Christmas' and 'One more arrow' are emotional filled ballads and the otehr two songs hold up well enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highlight of 1983 March 29 2000
By William - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When I think back to 1983, the music from this album just comes to mind. An album that I played to death and is easily his best work in the 80's. After that he was unable to recapture the magic, in my opinion. 'Cold as Xmas' is one of the most beautiful ballads ever written, but as we all know, Elton was always good at putting a ballad together. The album features some outstanding album tracks including 'Saint' and 'Crystal'. The singles from this album are many including 'Im Still Standing' and 'Kiss the Bride'. The album's greatest highlight is the title track which sends shivers up my spine. This album could be considered a greatest hits package in it's own right, and is worth considering if you want just one of his albums. If you want two, let me suggest the brilliant 'Don't Shoot Me I'm...'

5.0 out of 5 stars Elton's best album of the 1980's Aug. 23 1998
By BigBadAzz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is the sound of an artist revitalising his own career after a relatively bleak period of mediocre albums. This an extremely confident collection of uptempo songs which holds a special place in my heart as I grew up listening to this stuff on the radio when it first came out. Tracks like "Kiss The Bride", "I'm Still Standing", "I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues" are perennial favourites and stand up well to his classic songs of the 1970's. Elton bounced back into the limelight with this album, with Bernie Taupin back by his side to provide some great lyrics. 'Too Low For Zero' is simply an enjoyable collection of radio-friendly tunes with beautiful melodies and great performances from many members of his original band. This 'comeback' album shows a return to form, and a good one at that. I don't think Reggie has had as good a record as this since, and 'Too Low' stands the test of time, proving what a talented and respected musician like E.J. can produce if he puts his heart and soul into the music and gives it to us bountifully. This is a good companion piece to Billy Joel's "An Innocent Man" from the same year (though I personally prefer 'Too Low'.)

5.0 out of 5 stars How do I rate this CD? Just like all of his others, 5 stars May 27 1999
By RVolley@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Buying this CD again because the one I had became damaged. I wore it out after my divorce, it got me through it. Being a piano player myself, (Not in Elton's league though), I love Elton's music. What really gets me into this album though is the song "Too Low For Zero". This is a song that sets the pace for alot of my workouts at the gym and running. Recomended for those who work out and want an excellent pace.
