Here is what Steven Wilson said:
“I very often say to people – if you want to look at a brilliant run of work, Elton John in the ’70s is almost flawless. And the rate of work is incredible.
There’s something like 10 albums – two of them double – between 1970 and 1976, all of which for me are borderline masterpieces, if not full-blown masterpieces.
‘Goodbye Yellow Brick Road’ is the one that has so many of the famous songs, and the production is just flawless. The songwriting, it’s got lyrics that are flawless, even the artwork is iconic.”
