My final Elton review today.
This album has it's high and lows but just not enough going on, to grab me in the way the albums with Mr Penny's mixes do.
That being said it certainly is not a bad release.
Just lacks that extra, overall sparkle, I've been spoilt with, by his other surround releases.
Therefore I'm breaking the 10 train and awarding this one a 9.

this 10 train don't stop there anymore..

(i'll get me >songs from the west< coat) ☺

edit: i'll just add, its a little bit wanky the albums directly before and after Peachtree Road (Songs From The West Coast & The Captain & The Kid) would to me have been more interesting/eventful in 5.1 but it turns out it wasn't only in the Quad era that less exciting/less popular albums got the surround treatment while more popular and plain superior records didn't.

Classic description.... :D

Agree with your sediments Adam... (y)
Seems to be some conflicting meanings for wanky. Let's hope it's the first one:
Not this one:
