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."
This is 'the one'

"this is a great album.Its worth buying just for the title song alone'the one'.This song's lyrics are full of solitude(like it mentions'drunken nights in dark hotels') and over that its music is composed so brilliantly.This track 'the one' has go to be the best work of Elton John and Bernie Taupin ever alongwith 'candle in the wind'.Although 'the one' was released way back in 1992 i still hear it and i know i will continue hearing it in years to come.It's a piece of art."
