#455: Tumbleweed Connection by Elton John

2.03.2011


Tumbleweed Connection by Elton John (1970)

Favorite Track(s): "Come Down in Time" and "My Father's Gun" and "Where to Now St. Peter?" and "Love Song" and "Burn Down the Mission"

Thoughts: I love an album that gives me the chills with its awesomeness. Tumbleweed Connection is one of those albums. I mean, some of these songs would be heavenly with just Elton at the piano, but instead they are chock-full of gorgeous orchestrations and horns and the music just feels like tidal wave of sweet sound washing over you.

Listen to the piano on "Burn Down the Mission." LISTEN TO IT (2:05). I mean...come on. The man's an effing genius and this album and Elton John should be higher on this list.
