"After a couple of weightier singer-songwriter outings, it was delightful to hear John revel in the simple pop pleasures of "Honky Cat." Written in four days, and utilizing his signature touring band for the first time, Chateau is a snapshot of an artist loosening up and coming into his full powers." - www.rollingstone.com
"A perfect song [Rocket Man] for the age of moonwalks, this star trek was the elegiac tale of an astronaut lost in space, light-years from home. Taupin wrote it on the way to visiting his own family. 'I got inside,' he said, 'and had to rush to write it all down before I'd forgotten it.' Taupin was accused of ripping off Bowie's 'Space Oddity,' but he was actually thinking of 'Rocket Man,' by acid-folkies Pearls Before Swine." - Rolling Stone
