Similar to the previous record in many ways, but perhaps with fewer dynamic and standout tracks across the record. Elton continues to shine on both rock-heavy and pop-heavy instrumentation, but doesn't entirely diversify his sound vastly on Tumbleweed Connection. The addition of a western-theme was largely lost on me upon listening outside of the title of the record.

Favorite track: Love Song
1. Ballad of a Well-Known Gun 0.80
2. Come Down in Time 0.50
3. Country Comfort 0.85
4. Son of Your Father 0.85
5. My Father's Gun 0.75
6. Where to Now St. Peter? 0.90
7. Love Song 0.65
8. Amoreena 0.70
9. Talking Old Soldiers 0.80
10. Burn Down the Mission 0.75

Favorite songs: Country Comfort • Talking Old Soldiers
A tribute to the wild west and its mythology so tied to the concept and so carefully described that, though an outsider, hits the target.
