Reviews

  • A slight comeback

    21 At 33, released in the spring of 1980, marked a slight comeback for Elton John at the time, both in the fact that Bernie Taupin returns and lyricist on 3 of the 9 cuts and that John was able to have Top 5 singles again (Little Jeannie reached #3). The album starts of really strong with "Chasing The Crown", a remenisence of "Grow Some Funk Of Your Own". "Two Rooms At The End Of The World" is the albums only bad song. It has a corny 70s R & B sound to it and I'm not particularilly fond of that type of music. It's pretty obvious what "White Powder" is about and "Take Me Back" has a country sound to it, with fiddles and everything. Overall, good album. Not quite the comeback that Too Low For Zero proved to be three years later but still, a major improvement from his two previous efforts.
  • Great album.

    Okay, 1970-76 is Elton's best period. From 1980 to '87, though, he had a fun rock sound and this is the album that started it all. I disagree with the iTunes review--the three Taupin songs are not nauseating or "disco." In fact, I'd advise listening to and downloading "Two Rooms..." to see if you like the album. Chasing the Crown is much closer to I Don't Wanna Go On With You Like That ('87 hit) than anything from Victim of Love. VoL stunk because Elton didn't write the music at all. He wrote all the music here, and it's rock, not disco. There's occasional gospel backing vox and brass sections to complement the guitar and piano solos. Little Jeanie is the hit and is a good song. Take Me Back is 100% country. White Lady...is a cocaine song w/the Eagles backing vox. Something is so compelling about Elton's voice on this record. "Jump Up!" is the finest of the early 80s trio of albums, with 21at33 being #2 and the Fox being #3 but having several great songs (Chloe on the Fox is an A+ and wins for most overlooked Elton song).
