The Missing Album 11 juillet 2003
Par Marty From SF - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This collection from 1981 has nearly gone unnoticed, probably due to the lack of input from Bernie Taupin. It is filled with great uptempo, complex arrangments like, "Breaking Down Barriers" and"Fascist Faces". "Just Like Belgium" is one of Elton's most upbeat romantic songs since the mid-seventies and "Carla/Etude/Fanfare" (which runs into) "Chloe" is a testament to Elton John's creativity. However, the best song on the album and the only single, "Nobody Wins" beats out the rest for arrangment, lyrics and heartfelt tearjerking. Amazingly, this single is omitted from all collections. I wish someone would explain this mystery to me.

Most underrated EJ album 17 juin 2000
Par Chris Cormier - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I remember when this came out, I think there was a problem with promotion for this album because he was switching contracts (from mca to geffen) It's a shame because it was probably his most consistent and listenable album in the 80s. Excellent mccartneyish melodies and harmonies in 'Breaking Down Barriers', 'Fascist Faces', sinister L.A. rock blues in 'Heart In the Right Place', experimental classical suites, good singing & writing, make this his best since 'Captain Fantastic'. It sounds like they actually took some time in recording this record, overall the musicianship and arrangements are excellent, and the guitar work would not be out of place on a steely dan album. (Actually some steely dan members do play on this album)
But at the time, pap like Air Supply, Juice Newton, and overall silliness were riding high on the charts, and EJ was perceived as a fading dinosaur, as was ELO with their similarly neglected Time album. He didn't get this creative again until "Made In England".

Subtle, Passionate & Extremely Underrated 6 avril 2003
Par jeff millar-sax - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
The Fox is one of those early-80's Elton albums that seem to get lost between the breakup of the original band and his resurgence as one of rock music's cultural icons in the last few years. However this album features some of his more passionate and interesting recordings.
The first time I heard "Breaking Down Barriers" I was on my way (late as usual) to a class and I felt compelled to sit in my car and listen to the entire song regardless of the consequences with my professor. It was worth it!... The following week I bought the record and wore it out tracking the album! So, when I finally purchased the CD recently it was like renewing acquaintances with an old friend. We picked up just where we left off all those years ago.
Favorite tunes on the album include "Heart in the Right Place" a biting social commentary of how the press has ruined (or tried to ruin) many people's careers and lives - with a similar commentary to Don Hendly's "Dirty Laundry." Richie Zito's screaming guitar intertwined with Elton's vocals and a driving, swampy beat make this the rockingest song on the disk.
"Nobody Wins" is the only song without composing credits in any way by Elton, but it is one of his most passionate vocals ever. Gary Osborne, Elton's writing partner on "A Single Man" and some of "21 at 33" shares the writing credits with Jean-Paul Dreau and these (along with "Heart in the Right Place") are easily his finest lyrics since "It Ain't Gonna Be Easy" from the "Single Man" LP.
"Fascist Faces" is another social biting social commentary from Bernie Taupin who previously guised his viewpoints and comments in the shadows of double entendres such as the lyrics to "The King Must Die," "Rocket Man," "Daniel," and "Benny and the Jets" in which he hid the message into a story of sorts. On this song he just comes out and tells it like it is.
"Carla/Etude/Fanfare" is beautifully, tastefully arranged by James Newton Howard and segues into the "pop-perfect" "Chloe" which along with the hook of the song features some more smooth guitar work from Richie Zito.
"The Fox" is my absolute favorite. Musically evocative of a lazy country day with the mournful wailing of Micky Raphael's bluesy harmonica throughout, it also contains the lyrical mischief that Taupin is well known for. The groove supplied by the late great Dee Murray and the most powerful/tasteful metronome in the world in Nigel Olsson, both drives and soothes the listener and along with the arrangement by James Newton Howard and the production by Chris Thomas makes this the perfect end song to the album - the kind that makes you want to listen to the whole thing again right away.

An under-appreciated and worthwhile CD 25 juillet 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
It amazes me that many people rate this album as inferior to '21 AT 33' and 'JUMP UP!'. While it's a mixed bag (probably because Elton collaborates with 5 different writers), it's highs are certainly better than most of the material on his previous (21 AT 33) and next (JUMP UP!) albums. With the exceptions of 'EMPTY GARDEN' and possibly 'LITTLE JEANNIE'.
'ELTON'S SONG' is one of my favourite Elton tracks of all time (he has said himself that it's one of his favourites too). Very simple & memorable, and the vocals are great too. 'JUST LIKE BELGIUM' (written with Bernie Taupin) is good, catchy fun ("see us face down on the floor of another cheap bar!"), as is 'HEELS OF THE WIND'. HEELS... reminds me of 'I'M STILL STANDING' in it's sentiment. 'BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS' is another enjoyable track, and a very respectable rocker, full of energy ("I'm breaking down the barriers, and loving what I find"). The final track, 'THE FOX', is quite interesting too (...'cause I am the Fox, like it or not, I'm always gonna be there..."). That sums Elton up quite well doesn't it?
While some of Elton's best 80s songs are here, some tracks are poor and prevent it from being a true classic. 'HEART IN THE RIGHT PLACE' and 'FASCIST FACES' are very forgetable, and the British minor-hit 'NOBODY WINS' (a song about divorce from a child's point-of-view) is quite original and unlike other Elton singles. Well worth a listen, but not one I ever actually play. The 3-tracks-in-1 (CARLA/ETUDE - FANFARE - CHLOE) is also a bit weak. It runs for 11 solid minutes, so it was probably intended mainly as a way of padding out the album. CARLA/ETUDE is a very classical style of instrumental, well made but seems out of place on a pop-album. Full credit to Elton for using some imagination, but it just doesn't work for me. Next up is a synthesizer instrumental (FANFARE) which sounds very odd in this context. I quite like 80s synths, but FANFARE is just a bit confusing to hear after several minutes of classical music. It comes a relief when it finally give way to the fairly likeable, innoffensive 'CHLOE', a love song. You can always go shopping while you're waiting for CHLOE to come on.
This album is by no means an all-out classic, but it's quite creative at times and is essential for all '80s Elton fans. The overall feel of this album is quite classy and sophisticated (As the inner-sleeve picture of Elton tipping his hat would indicate). Give LEATHER JACKETS & VICTIM OF LOVE a miss, and consider buying this before the patchier '21 AT 31' and 'JUMP UP!'. If you don't like this, it's quite unlikely you'd enjoy those 2 either!

What happened to this one? 10 juillet 2001
Par wicked_dreams - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Obviously by the time this album was released, Elton's magic was somehow disappearing as far as sales & popularity were concerned. However it's a lame excuse for the performance of this album in sales based on it's contents. Perhaps it was because this was the first U.S. album for a new label for Sir? Anyone who has had the pleasure of listening to this album or who is even lucky enough to own it knows what I mean. Beethoven is a distant cousin to Sir when it comes to the beautiful masterpiece of Carla Etude. Makes you wish Sir would record and entire cd with him on the piano accompanied by an orchestra (although "live in Australia" comes close. Some of the other pop-rock tracks on this album are musical gems to be discovered with great pleasure I might add. Breaking down barriers is as demonic (piano wise) as "burn down the mission". "Heart in the right place is so spiteful & downright nasty, "nobody wins" becomes a classic Elton single (one of the rare not written by Sir but he makes it his own), "... faces is scary but so downright bitchy (the vocal arrangement & effect is so haunting), "chloe is perhaps one of Elton's most beautiful but not most successful love singles, "the fox" is such a great melodic rendition of Sir's 2nd best talent his "Vocal Extraordinaire" is highlighted here as in so many more songs. This album is worth it if only for half of the songs mentionned previously. "Check it out"
