CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

The album needs time to reveal its treasures, but once it does, it rivals Tumbleweed in terms of sheer consistency and eclipses it in scope, capturing John and Taupin at a pinnacle ... this remains a testament to the strengths of their creative partnership.

Captain Fantastic is a fantastic record with some under appreciated Elton John songs such as Tower of Babel, Tell Me When the Whistle Blows and Better Off Dead whilst containing some of his classic such as Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds and Philadelphia Freedom.

Another criminally underrated album, one of his last true masterpieces.
