"This is definitely my favorite album by Elton John.I am really fond of its subtle and philosophic character.Practically every song here has something unique and at the same time all songs have something common and are united by the same spirit of warmth and care. The title track has wonderful lyrics.I also love the video to the song.Simple Life,The Last Song and Runaway Train are great,too. Buy it."
One of Elton John's finest recordings

""The One" is the second of three great albums which Elton John recorded from the late 1980's through the mid 1990's; the others are "Sleeping with the Past" and "Made in England". More than the others, this album truly shows the great range and depth of his talent, from great country rock ("Whitewash County") to soul ("On Dark Street") and finally, to mature pop ballads ("Simple Life", "The One", "Emily", "Understanding Women" and "The Last Song"). And he has a brilliant rock and roll classic duet with Eric Clapton, "Runaway Train", too. Although Elton relies mostly on studio musicians, with the notable exceptions of long-time band mates Davey Johnstone and Guy Babylon, his ensemble does play well together. And Elton shows that he is still at the peak of his form as a vocalist and as a pianist (e. g. his jam session at the end of "Whitewash County"). Fans of great 1990's pop/rock and roll music won't be disappointed. Along with "Made in England" and "The Road to El Dorado", this is an essential Elton John CD for the present phase of his career."
So OK, it's not "Cpt. Fantastic", but it's still great!

"Elton John has been criticised over the past two decades for 'failing' to come up with albums to match the standard of "Captain Fantastic" and "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road". Well, those days have gone and times change. "The One" perhaps isn't the greatest album of all time, but is still one of the best of Elton's. Check it out for "Simple Life" and the terrific title track, plus the return of the old genuis on "The Last Song"."
