1973 Goodbye yellow brick road,1983 too low for Zero,1994 Made in England, 2004 Peachtree Road PEACHTREE ROAD!!! A croire qu'il faut un cycle de 10 ans pour qu'Elton John nous sorte un bon Album, car Celui ci fait réelement parti des tres bon crus! La question qui se pose, comment fait il pour trouver autant de si bonne melodies apres tant d'année d'ecritures? A la 1ere ecoute on est frappé par son pouvoir créatif qui à traversé toutes les modes depuis 69 et qui est toujours intacte ! Les arrangements sont dans l'air du temps, pas de superflu, les melodies sont tres bien servies par des orchestrations tres americaines, l'album vacile entre country, ballades et rock! Les choeur gospel sur certains titres embelissent de la plus belle des manieres un disque qui se laisse ecouter avec un réel plaisir.Mention special pour des titres comme "Porch swing in tupelo" et "i can't Keep this from you" qui sont des pures merveilles, tant sur le plan melodique que sur l'interprétation. Un Must Have a avoir dans sa dicothéque!

Cet album manque cruellement de relief. Vous avez la sensation d'écouter la même chanson durant toute la lecture du disque. Aucune émotion ne vous emporte.De plus, les textes ne sont pas fournis dans le livret. Le seul point positif c'est la présence du piano et non du synthétiseur.
Les meilleurs albums d'Elton sont "The One", "Made in England", "Songs from the west coast" sans oublier "Blue moves" et "Goodbye yellow brick road".

HASH(0x9447ed5c) étoiles sur 5 A pure EJ recording, blending old and new 10 novembre 2004
Par Texas Brian - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Since 1992, if you bought a new Elton John recording your choices were: slow, slower, or a soundtrack. The quality was never lacking, but usually, energy and "life force" were; the music sometimes seemed paint-by-numbers. Having seen Elton live countless times, where nothing but energy and talent filled the room, I knew that the discs weren't giving Elton justice. I am happy to say that this disc finally lays that all to rest.

Peachtree Road effortly combines the two things we've come to expect from Elton over his 35 years in the industry: outstanding lyrics and incomparable musicianship. Here, you'll find songs that are simple yet deep, spiritual yet grounded. Touching on everything from being happy with one's lot in life ("All That I'm Allowed") to love's intoxication ("My Elusive Drug") to the character tale of a transsexual ("They Call Her The Cat"), Bernie Taupin has simultaneously done what he does best: paint scenes, and capture Elton's moods.

With so much on-the-spot material to work with, Elton's work is inspired. He still tends toward ballads, but the ballads here actually have depth and soul. "My Elusive Drug," self-acknolwedged autobiographical track, brings out richness in Elton's voice -- you can FEEL that Elton feels this song, and thhat, folks, is what music is all about.

Most refreshingly, we see the funky Elton of old raise his head with a vengeance. '60s-rock-tinged blues appears in "They Call Her The Cat," complete with a lively horn section. Nashville should aspire to create again such a pure country song as "Turn The Lights Out When You Leave," complete with steel guitar.

Some other items of note: This is the first CD that Elton himself has produced. The disc is dedicated fittingly to Gus Dudgeon and his wife Sheila. It's clear that Elton has learned how to produce an ear-pleasing record thanks to Dudgeon's masterful production of the '70s recordings. Beginning in the 80s, fans had to suffer through years of mind-numbing Chris Thomas productions where everything was flattened into nothingness. Elton's production is clean and crisp, much like Dudgeon's early work, with pianos and vocals returning to the front, their rightful place. This is a treat for the listener and a great tribute to Gus.

And, again, we see Elton working with the original band: Nigel and Dave. You get a sense that recording the CD was a flawless, joyful effort.

And that is the overriding tone here... Peachtree Road is a CD full of looking-back-on-life happiness. The lyrics, songs and production combine to make this a road that you're happy to relax and travel on for a long, long time.

HASH(0x945edcd8) étoiles sur 5 The more you listen, the better it gets 23 novembre 2004
Par Joe Douglas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
When I first played this CD, I thought, "Oh, great. Another middle-of-the-road effort." But after listening to it over and over, I'm taken by the strength of all of the cuts. This album will grow on you. Elton still has an incredible gift of composition. Many of the melodies in these songs will stick with you. Just give it time.

Some of the songs have the classic 70's Davey/Dee/Nigel backing vocals sound (even though Dee isn't still with us); and the backing vocals on "My Elusive Drug" sounds like those on Partridge Family records. (But then again, this is nothing new. They were also there on "Blues For Baby and Me" from the "Don't Shoot Me..." album some 30+ years ago and they sound good. 1/8/05 note: When I mentioned the Partridge Family sound in this review, I should have said that it was the ORCHESTRATION on "Blues For Baby And Me," not the backing vocals on that song. There were none! -- Sorry.) -- Each song stands on its own and has its unique qualities, but in particular, music-wise, Elton has created another classic with with the closer, "I Can't Keep This From You" -- soaring and inspiring.

The biggest disappointment for me was that the lyrics were not enclosed. One of the biggest thrills of a new Elton John album was in being able to read and savor the poetry of Bernie Taupin. Long-time EJ fans can remember that being able to enjoy the album package was almost as good as hearing the music. And maybe one day Elton will get back to providing instantly recognizable piano intros to many of his songs. That was what made many of his early hits and album cuts loved so much. (Think "Your Song," "Tiny Dancer," "Levon.")

All in all, there really are no negatives. New and long-time fans, don't hesitate to buy this one. It's worth owning and enjoying.

HASH(0x940483cc) étoiles sur 5 Elton takes us down Peachtree Road 9 novembre 2004
Par RBR - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
This album picks up where Songs From The West Coast left off and builds on it even more. Peachtree Road prominently features Elton's piano and vocals. Davey's guitar is finally allowed to step out in front and stay there and is not buried in the mix and the results are stunning. The background vocals, with "Elton and the boys," definitely bring you back to the glory days.

Bernie's lyrics this time around are mostly on the happy and content side with Elton on the opening track professing he's happy where he is; "I'm wearying and I'm staying up late, and the rain hits my roof so hard, You know I'm no longer thirty these days, I'm happy to play one or two hands of cards....fortune and fame is so fleeting these days, I'm happy to say I'm amazed that I'm still around..."

Elton has crafted an album that reminds us of why we are fans with songs that are fresh and new but yet take us back to the days where Elton ruled the charts and the radio. This album will not get Elton back on the radio or at the top of the charts but that is in no way the music's fault but the state of the industry these days. Elton appears to be ok with that and we should be too.

HASH(0x94048948) étoiles sur 5 Uninspired 23 février 2006
Par Lonnie E. Holder - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
I am a huge fan of Elton John, with dozens of his albums and CDs. I have seen the best and I have seen the worst. I was quite pleased with Elton's releases in the 90s, and "Songs from the West Coast" returned Elton to the style that made him famous in the early 70s. Unfortunately, the string of releases that culminated in "Songs from the West Coast" also raised my expectations for this release; expectations that were just a bit too high.

Taken as a whole, the lyrics are generally good. Bernie Taupin continues to churn out the words that Elton has always been so able to match with his music. Some of the lyrics are a bit cheesy ("They Call Her the Cat," as an example, which is goofy as well), and some are weird ("Freaks in Love"), but others are evocative and interesting ("Weight of the World"). As has always been typical of most Elton John albums, the lyrics are a mixed bag. However, it has always been Elton's music that turns Bernie Taupin's words into magic. Unfortunately, the magic has failed to turn Taupin's straw into gold on this CD.

There are good songs on this album; not great, but good. I enjoy "Weight of the World," which matches weary lyrics with weary music to give you the feeling that Elton has accepted his life and his age. This music compares favorably with Elton's early 70s music, when he was at his commercial peak (remember seven #1 albums in a row?). I think "All That I'm Allowed" has some nice pop riffs and good vocals.

"Porch Swing in Tupelo" has good music, but the lyrics are weak compared to similar early songs such as ""Border Song" and "Burn Down the Mission." "Answer in the Sky" is in the same category. The music is good and the lyrics are okay, but the songs are so bland and middle-of-the-road that I feel as though I am listening to another album. In the other direction is "I Stop and I Breathe." This song has good lyrics, but the music weak and the vocals sound strained.

Elton and Bernie have tried country-flavored songs several times in the past. "Turn Out the Lights When You Leave" is reasonably serviceable with acceptable lyrics and music. Most of Elton's albums have had at least one blues song. "My Elusive Song" is a good blues song that seems a lot like "Mellow" from "Honky Chateau." "Freaks in Love" is also bluesy, though the lyrics are a bit off-beat.

It is possible that something about "Too Many Tears" strikes an emotional chord with me. This music reminds me a lot of the music from "Jump Up" and "The Fox." The music is catchy and matches the mellow lyrics well. I count this song as another of the better songs on this CD. Just after this song is "It's Getting Dark in Here." It is possible that the proximity to "Too Many Tears" influences my feelings about this song, but I enjoy the harmonies, which feel so much like Elton's 70's music. I count "It's Getting Dark in Here" as another of the better songs on this CD. I love the strong piano bridge also.

After the previous two songs, I was hoping for a bang up finish to this album. I dislike the opening to "I Can't Keep this from You," but when the song hits its stride it is a decent song with reasonably good power. I also enjoy the harmonies on this song. This song is a bit better than the average song on this CD.

Now is the quandary; what is my recommendation? With about half a dozen reasonably good songs, this CD is a valuable addition to someone who considers themselves more than a typical Elton John fan. Unfortunately, the songs that are on cruise control distract from the better tracks, and prevent me from recommending this album to casual fans.

I am always encouraged when a musician I like releases a new CD, but I would have been even more encouraged had Elton built on "Songs from the West Coast." I have added this CD to my extensive collection of Elton John music, but I will be listening to many of Elton's other albums many times before this particular album makes it back into rotation again. Perhaps my opinion of this album will mellow with time; I hope it will because Elton John remains one of my all-time favorite singers.

HASH(0x9407bc0c) étoiles sur 5 A drive down Peachtree Road takes us back to the real Elton 13 novembre 2004
Par David M. Maroon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
- Several reviewers have lamented that Elton's new album doesn't rock out enough or is too "Adult Contemporary." They were perhaps expecting Goodbye Yellow Brick Road/Rock of the Westies, and got, instead, Honky Chateau/Tumbleweed Connection. I say, just be thankful you didn't get Victim of Love/Leather Jackets.

I suspect the disgruntled reviewers are younger than 40 or not comfortable with their age. Lack of a scientific poll prevents me from proclaiming that as fact, but I suspect it to be true. Let's face it, Elton is no spring queen and members of his core baby-boomer audience aren't so young either. The man is 57 years old, and no man is the same at 57 as he was at 27. What Elton is, based on a listen to this album, is a happier, more-comfortable-in-his-own skin Elton. He is more mature and reflective, and this is evident in his music.

While Songs From the West Coast was heralded as his "return to form," Peachtree Road is, in fact, that record. While very well done, SFTWC was pretty much a downer, even though EJ was back at the piano and in fine vocal form. Peachtree Road is more bouncy and uplifting, while paying homage to his adopted southland. The songs on this album each extract some different good from his 70's catalog, leaving the chaff on the grain house floor. His voice is deeper than 30 years ago, but, in many respects better. He interprets lyrics better and infuses them with emotions that he didn't dream about back them.

I've been an Elton John fan since 1972. He's never sounded better, and he and Bernie Taupin have rarely written better songs. Taupin's lyrics are grown-up and seem to nail precisely this period in Elton's life. In the early days, his lyrics were sometimes indecipherable, saved by Elton's hooks and vocals. Today they stand on their own and are merely enhanced by John's ability to craft superior tunes. They are more adult contemporary than rock n' roll, but, hey, aren't most of the rest of us these days? Be honest. You know it's true. Now to the songs:

1. Weight of the World- A "Hey, I realize I'm not a young man anymore, but I'm cool with it" song. Invoking memories of something from Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy, very autobiographical. EJ leads off the album letting us know he's just happy to be here, thank you very much. Nice melody.

2. Porch Sing in Tupelo- This one starts Elton and Bernie on their southland journey, accurately describing a more laid back culture and not one mention of anyone being married to their cousin! And, I think, a nod to Elvis. One of my favorite tracks.

3. Answer in the Sky- First American single and very uplifting. Capt. Fantastic, in 1975, sang "All this talk of Jesus coming back to see us couldn't fool us." Fast forward 30 years to a slightly older and wiser Sir Elton, who acknowledges there is someone out there bigger than us. Great mid-tempo, radio-friendly song.

4. Turn the Lights Out When You Leave- Remember "Texan Love Song"? Just about as country as Elton can get and with lyrics to make George Jones proud. Hey, go ahead and leave and don't let the door hit you in the a** on the way out. Very cool.

5. My Elusive Drug-Jazzy and well-suited to John's "mature" voice, a song about love so true, it liberates. Maybe the best reviewed song on the album; seems jerky, but captivating at the same time. Just like some elusive drug.

6. They Call Her The Cat- The closest thing to rock and/or roll on the album and not too shabby thank you very much. I dare you not to move to this one. Elton seems to be having a very good time singing it.

7. Freaks In Love- How did he find out about my love life? "Love for Dummies" a Torch song for the rest of us. All of us in relationships can identify with this one.

8. All That I'm Allowed- The "rest of the planet" first single and my favorite song on the album. Very pop and a feel good tune to boot. Easy to sing along to and a positive message about being content with what we have.

9. I Stop and I Breathe- The album's obligatory Elton heartfelt ballad about a relationship surviving the hard times. Proof Peachtree Road is an EJ classic because, as the least of the songs on the CD, it's still better than most.

10. Too Many Tears- The second best song on the album flashes back to early 80's Elton with a message not to dwell on the bad things in the world but look at the beauty in the world and dwell on that.

11. It's Getting Dark In Here- And turn the last song on it's ear for a completely opposite point of view. This is a haunting song of depression and a longing for hope in a cruel world.

12. I Can't Keep This From You- Ahh, the sound of 70's AM radio classics. If you've ever been in love, yet afraid to confess to the object of your desire for fear of rejection, this song's for you.

I listened to Peachtree Road for yet the fourth time as I wrote this review. You know how some albums' quality seem to decline with repeated listening? Not this one. Nope, Sir Elton John may be getting older, but, bless his heart, he's actually getting better.
