*****
Sehr gutes zweites Album von 1970, das ihm den Durchbruch bescherte. Viele starke Nummern mit besonderer Atmosphäre sind hier zu finden. Wird international zu seinen besten Werken gerechnet. Die beiden Singles "The Border Song" und "Your Song" sind natürlich die Höhepunkte! Große Musik!

5.5 ... hervorragendes Werk, wohl die beste LP aus der Frühphase.

gutes Album
*****
Absolutely a great Album!
******
Das am 03.06.1969 erschienene Debütalbum „Empty Sky“ ließ trotzt einiger kleiner Unebenheiten aufhorchen, wurde aber kein nennenswerter Erfolg. Mit seinem zweiten Werk „Elton John“ fand der exzentrische Musiker seine Linie und konnte seine ersten Erfolge feiern. Im Gegensatz zum Debüt klingt sein zweites Werk wie aus einem Guß. Gleich mit dem Opener „Your Song“ setzt er Akzente. Die wunderbar arrangierte Ballade wurde Anfang 1971 sein erster Top 10 Hit und gehört mit zum Besten, was Elton John je veröffentlicht hat. „Your Song“ klingt zwar im ersten Moment unspektakulär, verfügt aber über enorme Ohrwurmqualitäten und nistet sich aber nachhaltig im Gedächtnis ein. Gleichzeitig ist diese einschmeichelnde, butterweiche Ballade eine echte musikalische Alternative zum damals vorherrschenden Rocksound. Mit „I Need You To Turn To“ geht es verträumt weiter. Musikalisch klingt dieses von einem Cembalo und einem Orchester getragene Stück wie eine Vorlage für diverse Stücke eines Chris deBurgh. In „Take Me To The Pilot“ schlägt Elton ziemlich schroffe Töne an. Das Wechselspiel zwischen Eltons typischen Pianospiel und dem Orchester verleihen dem Stück eine besondere Note. Zwar ist das Stück nicht so eingängig wie viele seiner großen Hits, ist aber auf diversen Samplern vertreten und zählt völlig zu Recht zu Elton Johns heimlichen Klassikern. Wie musikalisch abwechslungsreich der Elton John jener Zeit war, zeigt das C&W beeinflußte „No Shoestrings On Louise“. „First Episodes At Hienton“ ist wieder eines dieser herrlich verträumten Lieder, das ebenfalls wie schon „I Need You To Turn To“ Chris deBurgh als Vorlage für seine Musik der Jahre 1974-1978 gedient haben könnte. Das gleiche gilt auch für „Sixty Years On“, ein Stück, das Elton auf dem 1971 erschienenen Album 17-11-70“ in einer sensationellen Liveversion eingespielt hat. Was soll man über „Border Song“ großartig sagen? Außer vielleicht, daß dieses grandiose Lied im Sommer 1970 Eltons erster Hit war und das es das Elton Lied ist, von dem wohl die meisten Coverversionen gibt (man denke nur an die fantastische Version von Aretha Franklin). „The Greatest Discovery“ ist einfach nur ein schönes Stück. „The Cage“ bietet einen ordentlichen Southernrock und ist sehr eingängig. „The King Must Die“ ist wieder ein eher verhaltenes Stück mit sehr schönen Orchestereinlagen. Elton Johns zweites Werk ist eine rundum gelungene Sache. Wenn man einmal seine fünf besten Werke aufzählen sollte, dann darf dieses Juwel nicht fehlen.
*****
...sehr gut...
******
Auch nach seinem tollen Debüt überzeugte Elton mit seinem zweiten Werk, welches schon professioneller als sein Erstling daherkam. Bestware bis heute
******
Great Album! I think any music Lover must know the Elton john of these albums, from 1970 to middle 70s. Simply master work in all, vocal, soul and orchestral arrangments
****
Sein Debüt in Amerika, gleich #4 dort und auch noch Grammy nominiert.
#468 der besten Alben aller Zeiten (Rolling Stone).
Best-of:
1 Your Song (#6 meiner Elton Best-of)
2 First Episode at Hienton (#43)
Auch ziemlich gut dann
Take me to the Pilot
The Greatest Discovery
The Cage
Ich mag vor allem den Bezug zur Klassik an dieser Platte.

Dank 4 absoluten Top-Songs ("Your Song", "I Need You
To Turn To", "The Greatest Discovery", "The Cage") und
dem guten Schlusssong reicht es für eine knappe 5.

Aber für eine höhere Benotung fallen dann die restlichen
Stücke zum Teil doch ein bisschen zu stark ab.....
****
Nur "Your Song" gefällt mir hier so richtig. Eine kleine Steigerung zum Vorgänger ist aber doch zu sehen. 4-
******
Schon bei seinem ein Jahr vorher veröffentlichtem, sehr gelungenem Debüt-Album 'Empty Sky' zeigte sich sein großes musikalisches Talent. Bei seinem selbstbetitelten Nachfolger machte er noch einen weiteren Schritt nach vorne. Die Songs sind noch stärker und auch ausgefeilter arrangiert.
Allen voran sein Durchbruchs-Hit 'Your Song' gehört für mich zum allerbesten, was die populäre Musik hervorgebracht hat. Aber auch bei den melancholischen Balladen 'I Need You To Turn To' und 'The Greatest Discovery' zeigt er seine große Klasse für ruhige Töne. Ebenfalls erstklassig geraten ist die erste ausgekoppelte Single 'Border Song', was aber leider nicht für höhere Positionen in den Charts sorgte.
Dass er es auch flotter kann, beweist er mit 'The Cage', da gibt er richtig schön Gas. Aber auch die anderen Songs sind sehr gut gelungen.
Einzig 'No Shoe Strings On Louise', das Countrymusiceinflüsse aufweist, fällt ein klein wenig ab.

Auf der remasterten CD-Version ist lobenswerterweise die allerdings erfolglose Single 'Rock And Roll Madonna' / 'Grey Seal' sowie 'Bad Side Of The Moon', was die B-Seite der Single 'Border Song' war, enthalten.
Das Album erreichte #5 in UK und #4 in USA.
Meine Bewertung: aufgerundete 6*.
*****
This is a great album. I do really love 70's Elton (although I'm not a huge fan of his faster tracks, they're still all decent). There is heaps of emotion in his songs though and that's why I really like them. Your Song is in my top three Elton tracks of all time, while I Need You To Turn To, First Episode at Hienton and Border Song are all really great tracks. I know this is an understatement but he's a great songwriter and singer and this is a really good album.
