Captain Fantastic And The Brown Dirt Cowboy comments
Comments for the album Captain Fantastic And The Brown Dirt Cowboy by Elton John:
Have to give one of my revisionist rants here. Captain Fantastic is almost certainly Elton John's best album. I find it hard to believe so many people say Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is better. That album is half schlock. Also doesn't hold together at all. But Captain Fantastic is very consistent and holds together extremely well. The musical and lyrical narrative arc is brilliant from the opening acoustic guitar on the title track to the gorgeous harmonies fading out at the end of 'Curtains.' My only reservation is 'Writing,' sounds a little too easy-listening-muzak, but even it doesn't descend nearly as low as 'Jamaica Jerk-off' or something from Yellow Brick Road. I suppose people love Goodbye Yellow Brick Road for the heights of its highs, which are Elton's highest (Bennie and the Jets, Candle in the Wind), but qua album, it doesn't come close to Captain Fantastic. This is the Elton John album that took a while to grow on me. Go back and listen to it again!
'Captain Fantastic' Elton John's best album title track should of been a hit, 'Someone Saved My Life Tonight' my favourite of all, this album seems very Sgt Pepper Influenced to me probably why I like It ..a once upon a time 'Curtains'
Another good pop/rock album from elton john with classic "someone saved my life tonight".
A worthy album in the tradition of the genius Yellow Brick Road. No filler here - all the tracks are strong and high light Elton's considerable talent. And arguably his last, consistently good recording.
My rating is based on the original release, without the last three songs. Elton John's most consistent record, with many great songs other than "Someone Saved." "We All Fall" and "Babel" are especially lovely, and "Bitter Fingers" and "Meal Ticket" are terrific rockers.
1 of only 3 Elton albums I can stomach.
Lovely collection of songs. Someone Saved My Life Tonight is a nice little hit. Surprisingly it didn't sound much like a concept album which the title and cover suggested.
Really like "Bitter Fingers", also "Philadelphia Freedom"and "Lucy in the Sky" were not on the original version of this album. This wasn't a great album but came out at the very height of his career and as a result it was the first album to enter the Billboard charts at #1. His next album, "Rock of the Westies" repeated that feat but was also not a great album.
