DT: come reap

And I've spread their ashes on the wind, and I miss John Lennon's laugh

Looks like we are on the same page with this one. There are pieces of almost all of the songs that I can't get out of my head. And I don't want to.
Each song with something special to offer --be it a fabulous piano piece, or some great backing vocals, or some outstanding lyrics, or the way Elton sings a line like "Heh, how about this. A little conversation tonight". God is that a cool song.
The album is true to his current mature musical style, yet it is somehow a perfect sequal to an album they did over 30 years ago. I really don't know how they do it. Just musical genius I guess. Just one more tale from the Captain and The Kid.

I'm completely, utterly awestruck. Go them.

Oh, and. Together they're musical genius. Apart they're good, but not great. I have Tribe and Last Stand in Open Country (the second is far better than the first, btw, although OMG, how I love "Billy Fury"). There are some songs of Elton's I don't even like, and I'm pretty sure they're ones Bernie had no part of.

"I know you, and you know me, it's always half-and-half". I think they've grown apart, a lot, at least that's what this album seems to be saying, but musically, you can't have one without the other. I'm sure most people think I favour Bernie, but I don't, I SO don't. I just pimp him because he's largely ignored in Elton's larger-than-life shadow. And that's not Elton's fault. *g*
