"Although it was viewed as one of Elton John's more lightweight efforts upon its 1975 release — possibly because it followed only half a year after the acclaimed Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy (and partially because many thought the album was released to fulfill a contractual obligation) — Rock of the Westies appears in retrospect to be his last great rock album. It certainly does rock consistently harder than any other John album, with guitarist Davey Johnstone even getting cowriting credits (with John and Bernie Taupin) on the opening 'Medley: Yell Help/Wednesday' and 'Grow Some Funk of Your Own.' Lyricist Taupin seems to be going off the deep end here at times with titles like 'Dan Dare (Pilot of the Future)' and 'Billy Bone & the White Bird,' but 'Island Girl' was another huge hit for the pair." — Amazon.com
