I'm astounded there hasn't been one review of this album! That being said, I had to write one. I won't attempt to review each song. Suffice to say, if you enjoy Elton's music, this album is a must-have! If you've never really listened to his music, this is a great way to start. Following his and Bernie's early years right up to the release of Empty Sky, Captain is easily Elton's most intimate work. Musically, it's definitely varied, with country, rock, R & B, disco, and classical influences throughout. Lyrically, as I said before, intimate and revealing. The boys bare their souls on this project, and we all are the beneficiaries of their brilliance. So if you've thought of buying this album, but just never have, do yourself a favor... Get it! You absolutely won't regret it.
