I actually think that Elton's style has a very narrow window when talking about the style of his music. As a percentage I think out of 100 about 15% are made up of guys who sit and bang away at the piano........That is why when the really talented ones come along like Elton and Billy Joel you tend to take notice. He is a huge household name that spans decades in the music business. Personally I think Yellow Brick Road was his crowning moment.

That's the one I have. I have another Elton John vinyl which is blue.

EDIT - First track is great, don't like the 2nd. Bit cringey.

Your opinion concerning the Yellow Brick Road Album more than likely stands true. Some of my favorites include Daniel, Your Song, Crocodile Rock, Bennie and the Jets, Levon, Dont let the sun go down on Me, Philadelphia Freedom, Rocket Man. And some from later on during his career like Candle in the Wind, etc.
One of my all-time favorites is "Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word" part of the Blue Moves album.

I love this album. One of my favorite songs of Elton's is "All the Girls Love Alice" and also "Social Disease" it's just too songs with very rare sounds, I think so my ears are attracted to them. Those two happen to be on this one.

Anyway, my favorite album from Mr. John is definitely "Madman Across the Water" by a long shot because of my (very typical, I know.) love for "Levon", "Tiny Dancer", and "Goodbye".

Elton John is one of the best artists to come in some time. He is a real singer and a great pianoist. I remember seeing a performance of his on soul train. His music was so dymanic and great. It brings everyone together. All kinds of people can go and hear his great music.

If there one musician I want to see in person is Elton John.

Elton John will keep making great music. I hope Elton keeps making music. His music will be great in the future. I would love to see Elton John to team up with Billy Joel. Those two are the best pianoist of their generations. They would be great together.

I only saw Elton once in concert, but what a concert to see. North American Tour for "Yellow Brick Road ". My ears were ringing for two days afterwards!
It opened with Funeral For Friend the long intro then a single spot light came on presenting Elton at his piano banging out the song! What a opening and he did quite a few songs off that album and some of his other previous hits. It was perhaps one of the top 5 concerts out of the 400 that I have seen! Stunning, jaw dropping and utterly etched in my memory for a life time. I think that a couple of years ago Elton and Billy went out on tour together with great success.

They've toured together (the Face to Face tour, saw them back in 2009 and it was a great show), but never collaborated on an album.
