From Rivera
Before all the glitz and the costumes, there were albums like this from a talented duo who had nothing to lose. Solid from beginning to end, it's still astonishing even after all these years.

From Brad1770
EJ and Bernie threw the kitchen sink at this album and it works .... mostly

Something for everyone here: Prog-ish ("Funeral For A Friend") , Classic ("Candle In The Wind") , Boogie ("Bennie And The Jets") , A homage to The Wizard Of Oz ("Goodbye Yellow Brick Road") , Harmony ("Grey Seal") , Reggae ("Jamaica Jerk Off") , Suave ("I've Seen That Movie Too" ) , 50's Twist (" My Sister Loves Rock'n'roll") , Rock ("Saturdays Alright For Fighting") , Country ("Roy Rogers" ) , Ballad ("Harmony" )

Correctly ranked at BEA 210 as one of the greats

Elton at his best. Should be in everyones collection has a song for every mood. I have tried many other EJ albums, but nothing is as full and complete as YBR.

I have just picked up the double album re-issue and the audio production is stunning. If your are a vinyl addict like me then this is a must have album. The album travels through many musical styles and there isn't a track I don't like on the album. Undoubtedly Elton's best work. Beautiful Mellotron string textures on Grey Seal. Great Caribbean feel to Jamaican Jerk Off!

Great opening track, good production and high musical quality. The album got some nice surprising parts but in general it failed to really impress me.

Definitely top-heavy and too long, but a sprawling, captivating affair.

Great songs, great production.
Candle in the Wind for Marylin was so much better than Candle in the Wind for Diana..
