Elton and Bernies last batch of songs from the 80s are catchy and ambitious but after 25 years this album sounds sterile and unengaging. Tracks like 'Healing Hands' and 'Club At The End Of The Street' blast out with an almost gospel-like fire and you can imagine Elton filled with vigour and energy as he was victorious over the scandal rag tabloid The Sun in court the previous year, which spent almost 2 years printing lies against him. The ballads are as sincere as most of his from the 70s and 'Sacrifce' can still surely tug at the heart of the coldest humans. 'Durban Deep' stamps along in a Reggae fashion, if a little unconvencing, but 'Blue Avenue' is delivered with masterful vocals and a beautiful Flugelhorn solo. This album is sort of a concept that reflects the music that influened Elton and Bernie back in the day. The vinyl LP format is a little more touching than the CD for it's bass is deeper and warmer. A few months on in 1990, the double album of hits that spanned his career reconfirmed that Elton John was great and still is, even though the albums are by now the product of a man more involved with fashion and royalty. Elton's painful 80s period was over and the 90s welcomed the old piano man with open arms.
