Elton John - Turn The Lights Out When You LeaveFor his second release from the "Peachtree Road" album, Elton has done a dramatic change in style, and released a song that wouldn't sound out of place on a country compilation. Indeed, were it not for Elton's distinctive vocals, you'd have been forgiven for thinking it was someone else. Sadly, as well as being the only thing that makes it sound like Elton John, it's also the only thing to recommend about the track. This has to go down as one of Elton's blandest, most uninspiring singles to date - really rather average, middle of the road fare. Shame, because he's still got that great knack for tunes - just this is one that was best left on the album.

He's one of the country's best loved singer/songwriters, but it has to be said - some of the material on "Peachtree Road" isn't up to 'Sir's' usual standards. This single, one of the best tracks on the latest album, is good enough, but nowhere near as exciting as past classics "Daniel" or "Crocodile Rock". It's a nice enough country ditty, which is very nice played live, but it doesn't rank with the master's best work.
