Overview

Glitzy showmanship fuels Caribou and the shiny surface of the album is alluring, although only a few tracks on the record rank among John's best work. "The Bitch Is Back" is one of his best hard rock cuts, and "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me" is one of his classic ballads. While the rest of the album has its share of filler or competent genre exercises, "Pinky" is a fine ballad and "Dixie Lily" is an endearing stab at country.
