Madman Across The Water
Label: Virgin Emi
Madman Across the Water is another feather in Elton John's cap, gaudy as it may be. This time out, haunting strings -- which add depth and color to an already colorful performer -- augments Elton's beautiful, piano-driven songs. "Tiny Dancer" and "Levon" are the highlights of this nine-song disc, most of which is superb.
