Elton's vocal makes Taupin's evocative lyrical touches (with delacies such as "Up in the balcony, all the Romeo's are bleeding for your hand, blowing theater kisses, reciting lines they don't understand") come alive, as Paul Buckmaster's strings soar in an almost angelic fashion. I have to say that this is probably Elton and Bernie's best work together since, dare I say, "Blue Moves"? Maybe that's not fair, how about "The One". I couldn't believe the strong melodies and lyrics on this new cd.

Elton John has been used to doing things on a grand scale for a very long time, so it’s only right that, even as. .This Grammy-nominated entry from the rightly lauded Songs From The West Coast album is a fine example of how highly evolved the best Elton John songs became.
Elton John has been used to doing things on a grand scale for a very long time, so it’s only right that, even as he conducts his vast, three-year farewell tour, we should be welcoming him to the silver screen. A self-analytical Bernie lyric lyric of almost painful honesty is tethered to an incisive Elton tune, with further visual illustration in a video starring Robert Downey Jr.
It was easy to think that John wasn't interested in writing like this anymore, given not just his continued success, but the ease with which he was crafting pleasant adult contemporary records. There are still elements of that on Songs From the West Coast - a few of the ballads are a little too even-handed, and since this is a modern recording, it lacks the resonant warmth of such classics as Honky Chateau and Tumbleweed Connection.
