Biopics are all the rage since the release of Bohemian Rhapsody, which went on to find both mass & critical appeal, sweeping this year’s Academy Awards. Rocketman, the upcoming Elton John biopic, has hit the nail on the head in terms of casting young Welsh actor Taron David Egerton in the starring role, if the soundtrack is any indication. Taron’s vocals are reminiscent of 70s Elton and his powerful, soulful tone shines on Rocketman (Music From The Motion Picture). He tackles the playful “Crocodile Rock” while showcasing a more vulnerable side and effortlessly bringing a fresh spin to his versions of beloved Elton John tracks “Your Song” and “Tiny Dancer.” We can’t wait for this film set for release May 31st.
Highlight Tracks: “Border Song,” “Tiny Dancer,” “Take Me To The Pilot”
