Artist: Elton John
Title: The Diving Board (Deluxe)

Released: 13th September, 2013
Mercury Records

Score: 9/10

This is a powerful new studio album from Elton John, where we hear him go back to basics. Returning to his roots in blues music, this is mostly a piano album, with stand out tracks including Oscar Wilde Gets Out, Can’t Stay Alone Tonight, Home Again and Take This Dirty Water. Fans will be overjoyed and anybody just discovering his music, won’t be disappointed. Don’t expect any pop songs though, this was an album made to take on the road –  as a great touring album.
