Our Review

No one ever accused Elton John and Bernie Taupin of lacking ambition, but the songwriting team's third major album was not only another orchestrated delight, it came complete with the sort of full-on thematic bent that more seasoned artists might not have attempted. Bred of Taupin's fascination with the Old West mythos, Tumbleweed Connection is a love letter to the country that was fast making the pair one of its favorite post-Beatles musical teams. The mood here shifts from high drama ("Burn Down the Mission") to a pensive celebration of rural life ("Country Comfort") and Lesley Duncan's sweet "Love Song." An early version of "Madman Across the Water" is included as a bonus track with this edition.

Customer Reviews

An album for the generations in the house (5 stars) My parents had this album, worn with crackles and a scratch. I bought it when I switched from 8-track to cassette. My kids lost the CD, and here I am downloading it from some faraway server. Thirty six years since its release this album still stands out as a definitive masterpiece. Before the outrageous suits, the wild glasses, the excessive lifestyle and obnoxious behavior, there was an incredible artist called Elton John who made an Amazing (5 stars) This album has been in my family for decades, and it never loses its magic. all the songs are simply fantastic and original. this is a perfect entry to what good music sounds like. 6 Stars (5 stars) By far and away, Elton's finest work. This is a brilliant, wonderfully written, produced, arranged, conducted, and performed piece of pure genius. Paul Buckmaster's contributions were never better. Tumbleweed Connection belongs in everyone's music collection. Never disappoints. Will hold up 100 years from now.
