Elégant d'un bout à l'autre, à l'image de sa pochette (l'artiste en chapeau haut-de-forme), ce disque signe le grand retour d'Elton John sur la scène pop de la fin des années 70. Paru en 1978, il marque un renouveau dans sa carrière commerciale et artistique. Ainsi, le tube "Part Time Love" le voit retrouver le sommet des charts, alors que des morceaux comme "Madness" ou le très bel instrumental "Song For Guy", dédié à un coursier de sa maison de disques tué dans un accident de moto, atteignent des sommets musicaux. --Florent Mazzoleni

Musically, the album was never all that bad. The music and performances often harkened back to the gospel-inflected sounds of the first three or four albums, Tumbleweed Connection in particular. (Even Paul Buckmaster was back!) The soulfulness of those early years had been in danger of being polished away until Blue Moves, and was back in full force here.
What ultimately made this album so disastrously uneven were Gary Osborne's lyrics. After the high standard set by long-time lyricist Bernie Taupin, Osborne's lyrics were simplistic, banal, and cliched in comparison, rendering "Return to paradise", "Big dipper", and "Shooting star" more or less unlistenable. Even the album's lone U.S. chart success, "Part-time love", hasn't aged well, lyrically. It's a testament to Elton John's talent that any of the album works at all.
The highlights of the album, then and now, are "It ain't gonna be easy", "Madness", and the album-closing "Reverie/Song for Guy" (probably one of the first recordings by a major artist to use a rhythm box in place of a drum track), with "I don't care", "Part-time love", and "Shine on through" (which comes across slightly better now than then) not far behind.Read more ›
By the way I have heard 'Strangers' and it is a bit like 'Never gonna fall in love again' from '21 at 33'.

One of Elton John's classic albums from the 70's. Some interesting influences, from Latin sounds, some Dixie and one of the most beautiful instrumental pieces - Song for Guy. Read morePublished on April 20 2010 by J. Bonham
