By Lonnie E. Holder HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on June 23, 2005
Format: Audio CD
After having a number of lackluster and uninspired releases through the 1980s, with perhaps the lowest point being the 1986 release of "Leather Jackets," Elton John started a turnaround in quality and artistry that was evident on this album, and would achieve albums such as "The One" and "Made in England" in the 90s. While this album had much less quality and artistry than Elton's 70s albums, loyal fans were gratified to see that Elton could still write and sing good songs.

Elton's rediscovered enthusiasm shows in "Town of Plenty." Admittedly this song is one of the lesser songs on this CD; the words are corny and simple, and the music is relatively simple. However, Elton's voice sounds refreshed and clear, and the production is much improved over "Leather Jackets." This simple song is little indication of the music that comes later on this CD.

The second song also has relatively simple words, though more complex and inspired than the words of the first song. However, Elton's music in "A Word in Spanish" contains a flavor of that sound that made Elton John great in years gone by. This song was also the longest song on the original CD at 4:39 long. This mellow love song peaked at #19 on the charts in 1988. With the improvement over the first song, this song promised that this CD held even better songs.

Elton and his band get bombastic on "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters (Part Two)." The original song was a mellow and harmonious creation on "Honky Chateau." This version is funky and bouncy, and far from being mellow. While I am tempted to compare this song with some of the worst from "Leather Jackets," the comparison would be wrong. This song has fun with the overblown style, and keeps the enthusiasm evinced from the first song.

I bought this album way back in 1988 right after it was released & it is still one of my favorites today. IMHO, it is not only one of the best from the 80's but also Elton's expansive catalog as well. Alot of fans do tend to knock it becuz it sounds too 80's or becuz there's alot of synth or becuz it isn't up there with classic albums like "Yellow Brick Road". So does it have songs that measure up to epics like "Funeral for a Friend/Love Lies Bleeding"? Nope. But what it does have is a strong set of songs with great lyrics, infectious melodies & also some hidden gems that never made it on the radio but probably could have. Tracks like "Town of Plenty", "Mona Lisa's And Mad Hatters (Part Two)" & "Goodbye Marlon Brando" are very likable & fast paced pop tunes you will probably like the very first time you hear them. Then, of course, you have the album's big hit "I Don't Wanna Go on With You Like That". A very catchy dance track with a nice rhythm to it. My favorite track on the album is "The Camera Never Lies". It is a very catchy mid-tempo number that kind of sounds a little like Elton's future hit - "Healing Hands" and just like that song it has great percussion, piano, synth & a nice chorus as well. It's a shame it wasn't released as a radio single cuz I think it could've charted fairly well if given the chance. The ballads on the album are also top notch. The best being the elegant single - "A Word In Spanish". Definitely one of Elton's best songs.Read more ›

This is a great album, hands down. I came across this album in 1998, ten years after it's release, as I was beginning to fill out my Elton John collection. As a college kid with limited means, this wasn't an album I wasn't going out of my way to buy. The only recognizable single on it was "I Don't Wanna Go On With You Like That". The other songs would be a crap shoot on a limited budget. I did eventually get it.

I have to say, that 18 years later, this is one of the albums that I keep coming back to when feeling nostalgic for some Elton. There's a good mix of tempos and moods here satisfactorily wrapping up Taupin's lyrics, which honestly can stand alone as poetry of their own. I actually LIKE the generally-panned tracks of "Japanese Hands" (such an excellent sense of place) and "Goodbye Marlon Brando", (just can't take it too seriously and it's a lot of fun).

So, for what it's worth from a 25 year "Reg" fan, this album is worth the buy. Put it on and let the music take you back to the 80's and have some fun with it.

With Elton John returning to MCA Records in 1988 right after his contract with
Geffen Records, the rock keyboard maestro delivered another time-honoured CD
that not only provided another hit for him but also gave him time to re-interpretate
a few of his classic hits in sequel time--and he did this successfully and in careful
timing. Despite mixed reviews and little disappointment, Reg Strikes Back would
enjoy a great deal of success and live up to the hype right upon it’s initial release,
which only revisited the few classic hits but it manage to present some fresh new
hits. Starting off with the high-pitched opening track Town of Plenty, the versatile
track set concludes with funky high-rocking songs like Mona Lisas And Mad Hatt-
ers (Part Two), The Camera Never Lies, Heavy Traffic, and Rope Around A Fool,
while a few solid ballads, like A Word In Spanish, Japanese Hands and Goodbye
Marlon Brando adds up to the drama. Featuring it’s stark mixture of electronica-
driven rock and roll, electrifying keyboard solos, superb dance remixes and even
high voltage energy, Reg Strikes Back also remind us how great and flamboyant
he was. The definitive edition features bonus tracks, like a piano remixed version
of the dance-pop hit I Don’t Wanna Go On With You, and its renaissance take on
Mona Lisas And Mad Hatters (Part Two), which give it a better and lasting edge.
