1972's Honky Chateau was a lighter collection of rockers, ballads, blues, country and soul. Elton and Bernie Taupin keep things focused and the songs are extremely cohesive and deep. This is Elton at the top of his pop music form. Each song posseses a memorable melody and powerful hooks. The real thread that ties everythin together is John's ability to weave elements of roots music into his meticulously crafted pop.
