Japanese edition of the soundtrack for Dreamworks' current animated blockbuster (25 million in 2 weeks of release) which reunites Sir Elton with his partner on the best-selling 'Lion King' soundtrack, Tim Rice. Includes appearances by Don Henley, Paul Carrack & Randy Newman. Featuring one Japanese exclusive bonus track, 'Hey Armadillo'. 2000 release. Standard jewel case.
The negative comments of other customers are quite amazing, particularly those which suggest that "real" fans should steer clear of this album. To my mind, as a "real" fan for nearly twenty years, this is certainly one of Elton's best albums, especially in the last 10 - 12 years. Patrick Leonard has done a great job of elevating Elton's voice and piano to the front of the mix, a production value lost by Chris Thomas, whose overblown drum and synth work has dogged good songs since 1992. Best tracks on here include "Eldorado", the first single "Someday Out of the Blue", "Queen of Cities" and the brilliant "Friends Never Say Goodbye" which features the Backstreet Boys on uncredited backing vocals. I judge a new Elton album by how long it stays in my CD player before I revert to older material. This one has been there since release day, and shows no signs of leaving. The songs fit together very well, and Elton is obviously enjoying the experience of writing to Tim Rice's lyrics. I can honestly say there isn't any track on here that shouldn't be. Amazon should include this as an essential recording by Elton John - a return to the form he reached with 1995's "Made in England". I look forward to the next John/Taupin album, which Patrick Leonard is producing - they are back in the studio in September.
