  • Slightly better than Victim Of Love

    By TravlinWilbury
    I don't know why Elton enjoys working with crappy producers (Chris Thomas in the 80s - 90s), and now T-Bone Burnett. This album is anything else Elton has done instead of this drivel.
  • Great album

    By Bryan2020
    This album is slow but is still excellent! One of Elton’s more ‘personal’ albums. Also is definitely one of his most mature yet. I bought this album the night it came out, one of my best purchases!
  • Excellent

  • One of the few

    By Ceaser Miranda
    This album is very unplugged. It really showcases his talent. Mostly Elton's vocals, his piano playing with minimal percussion and production. Its one of the few albums I can listen song to song. That suits me just fine.
  • Good but not great

    By Mitt2012
    This record came with quite a bit of hype. It is good. It's far from great. According to Elton John the songs were written very quickly. It shows. They sound like first takes. TDB is mostly slow and mid tempo songs with nothing very exciting. When I look back at Elton John's original work since The One I would rate this one last except for The Big Picture. Songs from the West Coast was brilliant. Peachtree Road, I still listen to often. Made in England was great. Even The Captain and the Kid had 'And The House Fell Down' and the stunning 'The Bridge'. 'Dirty Water' is very good the end of 'Voyeur' uses a technique EJ has used in concert to good effect. 'Home Again' is fair but boring. No song is a home run. I'm not bummed out about it being a fair to slightly better record because I like all Elton's work and will be excited when another one arrives on a Tuesday in the future. The first Elton John record I bought was The Fox and it remains my favorite if only for sentimental reasons.
  • Phenomenal!

    Not a return to the 70's, but a return to great storytelling through EJ's rich melodies and Bernie's astute lyrics. Music is back and, of course, it's Elton who reassures us that synthesized ripoffs still aren't ready to replace the real thing. Love The Diving Board!
  • So What!

    By jsquared4
    A reflective bit of soap - my grandfather - a dirt farmer - had more poetry in his shovel. Mr. John finds himself in line with mortality and reports on it with mediocrity that embarrasses. Perhaps reading Oscar Wilde rather than singing about him might produce something of the magic one anticipates from team EJ & BT. Better luck next time - and , please, no more T-Bone productions - hide the bass and drums for Christmas.

    Boring, his best stuff by far was in the 70's.
  • Sir Elton's Masterpiece

    By Amsskaapipikani
    We've always known that Elton John is a genius. Many decades of wonderful tunes . . . but nothing ever like this. Underneath of that pop star there is someone much deeper. Every now & again an album leaves you speechless, stunned & ready to leap to your feet in celebration of its accomplishment. This album is in that rarified group. Just when you think you know what to expect from an artist of Elton's longevity he delivers what is sure to be remembered as his crowning achievement. Bravo, just BRAVO!
