Editorial Reviews

This is the long awaited critical review of Elton John in concert, on record and on film. Drawing on rare television footage of Elton performing live, this is the definitive retrospective assessment of one of the most dearly loved solo artists of the last 50 years. This independent film features a team of leading critics and musicologists in a penetrating journey into the heart of the music which has sold over 250 million albums worldwide. Every album from Eltons most productive and critically acclaimed period is reviewed and assessed. Hard-hitting and forthright, the critics pull no punches when it comes to discussing what worked in the music and why sometimes, it didnt.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware March 10, 2007
This product is a shoddy rip off. The live concert footage and sound is the lowest quality possible - like it was copied off a pirated VHS. No song is played in it's entirety. Instead you have a random collection of British critics, a couple of which aren't even fans of the music, making witless and uninformed comments for the most part over and between the low res concert footage. If you were expecting a career review, album by album, with some good live footage throughout Elton's career, this is definitely not it. It's a slapped together product to exploit Elton John's profile with none of the quality control that exemplifies his "officially" released material. Stay away.

2.0 out of 5 stars Caution -- This is a documentary . . . period. February 23, 2007
Verified Purchase
Very disappointed. This is not the DVD if you want to watch Elton John. It's true that there are video clips of him performing, but the vast majority of the DVD is commentary. The video clips only show short segments of his performances.

If you want a GREAT DVD of Elton, buy "Elton 60, Live at Madison Square Garden". You won't be sorry!

2.0 out of 5 stars Save your money September 2, 2007
I would recommend the other DVD called "Elton John Rock Case Studies" instead. That DVD has one extra person giving commentary (the guy who brought Elton and Bernie together). This "Music in Review" DVD shows the same 1984 Sydney concert over and over again. It is cloudy footage to boot. I doubt I will watch it again. However, the critics who give commentary were very detailed. They appear again in the other DVD. I also was dissappointed that they did not review albums from the last 20 years. Save your $17.99 plus shipping and go for the other DVD.

2.0 out of 5 stars Going by the reviews only..... May 19, 2007
As a big fan of EJ I was hoping that there would be rare footage of him in concert,but thanks to the reviews,I decided not to buy this.How come there isn't any old concerts on dvd?? When I heard DREAM TICKET was coming out,I bought it,but was a little bit disappointed that it had one concert that was already available on dvd and others I've already seen,except for just one.How about putting together a dvd that has the DODGER STADIUM doc from 1975? Or the doc EJ and Bernie Taupin Say Goodbye to Norman Jean and Other Things from 1973?? Or how about the solo Edinburgh concert from 1976?? Or how about the concert from Wembley Arena from 1977 where he announced he was retiring from touring that was originally on HBO??? There's so much stuff that we EJ fans would love to have! How about all of his music videos?? I don't mind having concerts that are more recent,but it would be nice(better than nice actually)if there were more from the 70's instead! Skip this dvd indeed...
