Performance:   Sonics:  
What a revelation! I was never a great Elton John fan even though I quite liked some of his songs but after listening to this SACD version of Honky chateau, I am a convert. This was a good SACD album to try as I have the standard CD version of it and the SACD version leaves it for dead, IMO. There is so much detail and dynamics that it's quite amazing, so good in fact that I kept on listening and listening to it. I can't recommend it highly enough!

Performance:   Sonics:  
This is yet another spectacular release of early Elton John sacd's by Universal Music.

Full, warm, rich and dynamic. The musicians and Elton's voice rendered in incredible realism.

Beautiful sacd transfer and sound that will stun you.
If all classic rock albums sounded this would be grand.


Highly recommended.

Performance:   Sonics:    
I already own four EJ sacd's. So far, this is the best sounding. It's pretty special to hear one of my most favorite Rocket Man ever so clear: the voice is so believable, the percussions crisp, the strings resonant with energy. Add the fact that the lyrics are excellent. Geat songwriting!
