Elton is a special artist for me. A musical genius, along with Stevie Wonder, who I grew up with just as my parents did when Elton debuted. Also like Stevie Wonder, he is very underrated on this site. Yes, after the late 70's, Elton has been merely a shadow of his former self, but his accomplishments speak for themselves.

Similar to Queen, he only has a few truly great albums, but his catalog of hits speak for itself as well. Yellow Brick Road is one of the most wonderful works of art in the history of popular music. Elton John is a legend.

Briliant singles artist - not quite at the same level when looking for whole albums.

If there's an underrated artist in this site is Elton John, in the 70's he pulled out a Bowie releasing one great album after another. He hasn't done many interesting things since but with 8 albums (or so) been pretty consistent he is already a legend.

There are 2 Elton's the early seventies version and the M.O.R. Elton of the nineties onwards. The nine studio albums released between 1970-75 are his best. Later albums like Made In England,Songs From The West Coast and his album with Leon Russell are the best of the rest.

Solo por sus discos de los años 70 merece estar en un lugar más alto.

Seems to be one of the more underrated artists/bands on this site. His earlier work was fantastic. Honky Chateau is especially underrated I think. Great from start to finish.

Had Elton John quit before he aligned himself with Disney, re-wrote the lyrics to "Candle in the Wind," suddenly grew hair, and opened the closet door, he'd be one of my all-time favorites. But, for almost twenty years now, he has lost his rocking edge and has slipped into easy-listening hell. Oh, how I miss the Elton John of the seventies. Still, his early body of work contains so much wonderful stuff that it can overshadow his later mess.
