Album Review

In many ways, Goodbye Yellow Brick Road was a recap of all the styles and sounds that made John a star. The double album is all over the map, beginning with the prog rock epic "Funeral for a Friend (Love Lies Bleeding)" and immediately careening into the balladry of "Candle in the Wind." For the rest of the album, John leaps between popcraft ("Bennie and the Jets"), ballads ("Goodbye Yellow Brick Road"), hard rock ("Saturday Night's Alright for Fighting"), novelties ("Jamaica Jerk-Off"), Bernie Taupin's literary pretensions ("The Ballad of Danny Bailey"), and everything in between. Its best moments are spectacular: glitzy, crowd-pleasing showmanship that defines what made Elton John a superstar in the early '70s.
