Un excellent début pour Elton, avec notamment le magnifique "Skyline Pigeon" interprêté ici au clavecin. Album indispensable pour découvrir le début de carrière de cet immense artiste.

D'ordinaire, les premiers albums sont soit des réussites sans lendemain, soit des daubes où l'artiste est encore en train de se chercher. Ici, ce n'est ni l'un ni l'autre. D'emblée, Elton John sait imposer sa griffe sur un album contenant d'excellents morceaux ("Empty Sky", très glauque, ou "Skyline Pigeon", très mélodieux). Laissons juste de coté "Sails" ou "Lady what's tomorrow", cette dernière chanson faisant partie des morceaux tendres qu'il réussira à développer avec plus de succès par la suite. Sinon, l'album anticipe déjà des productions réussies comme "Elton John" ou "Madman across the Water". Déjà le goût de l'originalité, des mélodies joliment tournées, des innovations comme le clavecin dans "Val-hala". Les bonus sont un plus, avec "Lady Samantha" (bon d'accord, un tube un peu kitsch) mais aussi "Just like strange rain". Ma préférée, à part "Empty Sky", reste "Gulliver", suivi d'un ton jazzy... on frôle le rock prog? Elton sait surprendre - par un album comme celui ci par exemple...

aux sonorités étranges et diverses, mais qui laisse déjà présager l'immense artiste qu'Elton sera durant une décennie (parce que, même en étant son plus grand fan français, faut bien avouer que les années 80 étaient plus inégales, et je parle pas de la suite).

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The yellow brick road started with this obscure great 10 octobre 2002
Par 35-year old wallflower - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Elton John & Bernie Taupin are probably the longest-lasting songwriting duo in history, beating out Rodgers & Hammerstein or even Gilbert & Sullivan, yet definitely on a level of those legends. It's hard to believe the two have been working together for well over 35 years by now & have seen more hits than a birthday pinata. But while some people think "Your Song" was what started Elton & Bernie on their way, it was just their first major success. Before that, they had released an album that was an ambitious debut, but it was clear greater things were in store for them. That album was 1969's EMPTY SKY.
At the time, Elton & Bernie (I mention both at the same time because while Elton may be the one out front, Bernie's songwriting is just as, if not more, important as Elton's showmanship) were barely out of their teens, so for an album like EMPTY SKY to debut with, you'd think the two had been around for a while. But also because of their youth, it's fair to call the album a little too didactic for its own good & sure enough, they can stretch themselves thin on EMPTY SKY. But when they succeed, it's fantastic.
The title track is one of those times, with a Stones-sounding rock tune that would prove to be Elton's stock in trade during the 1970s when he rocked more than crooned. This being 1969, it has more than a slight psychedelic tinge to it (almost like MAJESTIES-era Stones, only better) with the proverbial backwards guitars & false ending. But instead of coming off as dated, it's actually quite endearing & by far one of Elton's most overlooked songs. "Sails" & "Western Ford Gateway" continue the mostly-straightahead rock sound & are good examples of both Elton's way with crafting a melody & Bernie's still-developing lyrical talent.
But EMPTY SKY was probably intended as something more bold & risky, which explains why the album doesn't really fit well into the rock category or even pop. Are there blunders? Sure, but only 3 glaring ones: "Hymn 2000" doesn't work too well, with its futuristic theme coming off as STAR TREK-inspired sci-fi in the end. "Scaffold" & "Lady What's Tomorrow" also suffer from overambitious lyrics that have Bernie still discovering what his style is as a writer.
On the plus side, "Val-Hala" has the feel of a sea shanty with its infectious chorus that dares anyone not to sing along. "Skyline Pigeon" is deservedly the song on EMPTY SKY that has outlasted its otherwise inauspicious parent album, managing a delicate beauty with Elton trading in his piano for a baroque harpsichord (I haven't heard the piano-based outtake that found its way onto 1973's DON'T SHOOT ME I'M ONLY THE PIANO PLAYER as a bonus track, but the lowdown is that it is superior to its released version). The main reason for this song's belated acclaim is Elton having performed "Skyline Pigeon" at the funeral of Ryan White, and its modern-day hymnlike structure makes it perfect not just for the memory of White, but of any departed loved one.
The closing medley of "Gulliver/Hay Chewed/Reprise" ends the album in grand style with the first part being an ode to Bernie's childhood dog; the second part is a jazzy instrumental that shows Elton is one heck of a piano player, which is something that would get less attention over time, then recently see a resurgence; the last part recaps all the previous songs from the album & whether or not that was necessary is in the ear of the beholder. After all, this was the late 1960s, what artist wasn't experimenting like this back then?
The remastered version not only offers better sound & clearer production, but it contains bonus tracks that were among the very first songs Elton ever recorded & again, despite their rather lofty ambitions, it's still clear something special was afoot. "Lady Samantha" might be recognizable to some Elton fans, for it was first recorded by Three Dog Night at about the same time EMPTY SKY came out & while this catchy rocker wasn't a hit for them, it nevertheless helped get Elton's name out to the American public. "All Across The Havens" once again has Bernie trying hard to impress with his lyrics, while "It's Me That You Need" is a kind of straightforward love song which Elton & Bernie would almost neglect until around the 1990s when Adult Contemporary radio became their biggest target. "Just Like Strange Rain" also falls into the ballad category, but with lyrics that point towards the heights Bernie would scale in just a few short years.
The 1960s were ending at the time EMPTY SKY came out & the psychedelic sound the album used in abundance was also starting to lose its freshness. That might be a valid reason why EMPTY SKY didn't sell well originally (it wasn't even released in America until 1975, after Elton became a superstar). Yet it's always interesting to see where a legend first began his body of work & EMPTY SKY is certainly worth a listen to see where Elton John was headed, as well as hear some of the things he'd rarely ever do again (except for "Skyline Pigeon", the songs on this album have been forgotten for the most part). Who knew the two young men making this album would soon change pop music forever?

3.0 étoiles sur 5 You've Got To Start Somewhere 9 octobre 2001
Par Timothy A. Powers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Empty Sky is the album that first introduced Elton John and his lyricist Bernie Taupin to the world (except for the US where the album wasn't released until 1975). When I first heard it, I was less than impressed, but on repeated listenings, I've learned to appreciate it more. It's crude, dark, with overly pretentious lyrics from the usually great Bernie Taupin, and Elton has told stories of how the piano he recorded with was out of tune. However, you've got to start somewhere. You can hear the promise of what was coming on Elton's very next effort, the self-titled ELTON JOHN. These songs began as poems that Bernie wrote before he ever met Elton. Their early efforts at writing pop songs produced some largely forgetable songs,and Steve Brown (I think) suggested they try using Bernie's poems. That's why these songs seem as disjointed as they do. "Skyline Pigeon" is my favorite track (although like so many have said, I prefer the piano version which was the B-side of "Daniel" and available on the
remastered DON'T SHOOT ME, I'M ONLY THE PIANO PLAYER). "Valhalla" and "Lady, What's Tomorrow" are also worthy
of note. The bonus tracks are a very welcome addition. The
orchestral arrangements of "It's Me That You Need" make up for
the sappy, simplistic lyrics. (Sorry, Bernie)
I'm a huge fan of the John/Taupin team, and I would say it's worth the price of admission to hear how these great songwriters got their start.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Elton's Debut 18 janvier 2001
Par P Magnum - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Empty Sky is the debut album from Elton John. It is a very solid effort, lacking in spots, but shows the immense potential that would be fully realized on future albums. The title track is a good rocker that opens up the album. "Val-hala" is the best song from the album with it's mystical Bernie Taupin lyrics and Mr. John's harpsichord gives it the baroque sound that would permeate his second album. "Sails" and "Skyline Pigeon" are good songs as well. The closing medley of "Gulliver/It's Hay Chewed/Reprise" is an interesting way to close the album. The middle section is an instrumental with touches of jazz and the reprise is made up of pieces of songs from the rest of the album. "Lady Samantha" and "Just Like Strange Rain" are the best of the bonus tracks on the album.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 a fantastic beginning 24 août 2010
Par Bryan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
You know, I've had several people tell me to avoid Elton John's Empty Sky because, according to them, Elton's songwriting lacked focus since it's just an early effort that should be forgotten. I have to strongly disagree.

In fact, I absolutely love Elton's classic early to mid 70's period (including Blue Moves) and I really don't understand how supposed gigantic fans of Elton's music can possibly find *any* major problems with Empty Sky.

There's honestly nothing to hate about this album. It's completely loaded with one highly melodic song after another. In fact, much of the style feels similar to his Tumbleweed Connection album, which is considered a masterpiece to most Elton John fans, so it makes no sense why Empty Sky is constantly ignored the way it is.

Perhaps people are turned off by the choice of background instruments. You will hear flute, harpsichord, and electric guitar jams much more frequently than on future Elton John albums, but that's hardly a big deal. Most of the time these instruments are played quite tastefully anyway.

Also, Elton's usual singer-songwriter style of piano-dominated pop/rock is all over the place here. No kidding. You'd never guess this is a late 60's album because it sure doesn't sound like it. It sounds like Elton John already knew what kind of music he wanted to make from the beginning, so he went ahead and did it... for the next 40-something years.

Picking a favorite song is literally impossible and I'm honestly not saying that to get OUT of doing it either. It really is a difficult thing to do considering there's not a single weak point on the entire album (including the bonus tracks- though to be fair, the last of the bonus tracks has a chorus that does repeat a bit too much).

I prefer this album to his follow-up self-titled album by *far*. If you're an Elton John fan, you will be humming these memorable songs over and over again.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 An early Elton John album with a fantastic song called "Empty Sky" 17 novembre 2015

An early Elton John album with a fantastic song called "Empty Sky". The other songs on the album are typical Elton tunes and are fine but "Empty Sky" is a masterpiece that deserves a listen. I love to crank it up as loud as possible and let Elton rock my room.
