Goodbye, Yellow Brick Road

Still have to keep a lot about my projects under wraps but in the meantime I can talk about one of my best buys lately album wise.

I’m not complaining, I love the idea, in fact this dinosaur still incorporates part of that idea in her music.

You can really hear Eltons rich idea world going through the whole album from start to finish (heck, play it backwards if you feel like being naughty and it’d still give you chills). And I know it’s an obvious Elton John album to rave about but, you know, there might be a reason for that.
