|4.0 excellent||TheLongShot | May 5th 17|
Easily the most mature Elton John record to date, the songwriting overall is really strong and Elton's gradually lowering voice only heightens the effect. The only weak point is the rather muddy production. Track picks: "The One", "Sweat It Out", "Runaway Train", "The North", "The Last Song"
|3.5 great||CRX | February 12th 16|
Far from being a novelty album, Elton John's "The One" sees the artist revisiting the pop/rock roots that marked his carrier in the 1970's.
While "Simple Life" describes the problems he's been dealing with at that time, the title track's uncanny vibes grasp you in their spell from start to finish. The piano solo at the end of "Sweat It Out" is a must. "Runaway Train" manages to kick it into fifth gear, with a little help from friend, Eric Clapton. "The Last Song" - a shattering ballad about AIDS - written not long after the death of longtime friend Freddie Mercury, sees Elton giving his most wholeheartedly performance.
All in all, it is the comeback album the fans have been craving for.
