Another one of Elton's experimental "side" projects. This time he writes the score to a soundtrack (as opposed to actual songs). He does exactly what he's required to do, but I can't really imagine anyone wanting to buy a CD such as this. Most songs are very short, and have such titles as Driving to Jack's, To the Guesthouse, Driving to Universal, etc. etc. It definitely is Elton on the piano, but who really cares?

It didn't help matters when the movie was pretty awful in itself (to be fair, I only made it through about 45 minutes), so it's not like this project is remotely close to anything memorable.

He does perform two actual songs here. Or two versions of the same song, that is. They're o.k. I guess. Back To Main Page
