Background:  Tumbleweed Connection was Elton John’s third album (his second in the U.S.) and the album reached #5 on the U.S. album charts and #2 in the UK.

Allmusic.com gave Tumbleweed Connection a rare 5 star review:

Instead of repeating the formula that made Elton John a success, John and Bernie Taupin attempted their most ambitious record to date for the follow-up to their breakthrough. A loose concept album about the American West, Tumbleweed Connection emphasized the pretensions that always lay beneath their songcraft. Half of the songs don’t follow conventional pop song structures; instead, they flow between verses and vague choruses. These experiments are remarkably successful, primarily because Taupin’s lyrics are evocative and John’s melodic sense is at its best.
