“Visually, musically, and in every other way, Don’t Shoot Me I’m Only the Piano Player is an engaging entertainment and a nice step forward in phase two of Elton John’s career, the phase that began with Honky Chateau. The essence of Elton’s personality, on record and in performance, has always been innocent exuberance, a quality intrinsic in most of the best rock ‘n’ roll of the Fifties and early Sixties. Elton’s only major problem after the success of his first album was finding the right direction for his talent, and until Honky the path chosen led up a blind alley. In Madman Across the Water, which closed phase one, Gus Dudgeon’s overly lavish production and Bernie Taupin’s often impenetrable lyrics ultimately created a barrier between Elton and his audience that severely endangered his star status. Honky Chateau was a sensational, unexpected comeback, as much a triumph of Dudgeon and Taupin’s versatile professionalism as of Elton’s musicality.” Rolling Stone
