I don't understand why Elton John is not rated in the top 20 on the BEA list. His volume of excellent and outstanding work should qualify him for something higher. He excels as singer, songwriter and musician. A true all-around talent.

Like the other commentators, I agree that he has done magnificent stuff in the 70s. Till November 78 to be exact when he released Song for Guy. ( I lwas overwhelmed by its badness.) And from then on mediocre to very bad. What a pity. Just like Stevie Wonder a prime example for a man who should have stopped making music, when he stopped running out of ideas.

Elton John is has released so much material in his lifetime that he has managed to become a favourite artist of mine even though I only really like/listen to 20% of his music (his 70s albums plus a few other songs). It always intrigued me why he relied on Bernie Taupin, Tim Rice and others for his lyrics, as often it's the music I'm in love with while the lyrics seem neither here nor there (e.g. Levon, Tiny Dancer). I'm sure he could have done just as good a job himself.
Elton John is a prolific talent whose music will always be memorable and hold special value.

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.

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.
