His most underrated album and criminally so.
A remarkably consistent loose concept album. The only real reason its not quite as recognizable as some of Elton John's more appreciated records is it doesn't have a huge hit on it. Still, its an album I can burn through without skipping a track. Its ends very strong with Burn Down the Mission, the album's strongest song.

Key tracks: Country Comfort, Ballad of a Well Known Gun, Burn Down the Mission, Come Down in Time and My Father's Gun
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.
