~ Elton John, 1987, has a decent album with 2 chart toppers ~

1987, after putting out a redone "Greatest Hits 1976-1986" album, Elton John has his studio effort with a few chart toppers, most notably "I Can''t Go On With You Like That" and "A Word In Spanish".
Although I like other songs on here as well, I don''t think this is his best ''80s effort as a whole.
I personally like "Too Low For Zero" as his best ''80s studio album.
Elton has gone back and redone many, if not all of his albums, especially those on CD format and given them new life, so to speak.
Remastered sound, better liner notes, graphics, artwork, and additional songs per each CD.
This album is no exception having 2 other versions of the huge hit "I Don''t Wanna Go On With You Like That" here as well as "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters, Part Two (The Renaissance Mix).
I recommend this version if you don''t have it already!

These redone CDs nearly all look like a mini record for graphics. Well done.

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.

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. I also enjoyed the quiet but atmospheric "Japanese Hands" & the album''s closer "Since God Invented Girls" which is a tribute not only to beautiful women but also the Beach Boys and as it turns out, they showed up to provide their trademark harmony b/g vocals on the song. The other tracks are also pretty good & sometimes even quite humorous if you listen to the vocals closely.

As far as this re-release goes, there are 4 previously unreleased tracks. The first is "Rope Around A Fool" & it has a nice bluesy New Orleans style piano that kind of reminds me of Dr. John. There are also 2 re-mixes of "I Don''t Wanna Go On With You Like That" & "Mad Hatters 2" which are interesting but much inferior to the originals. The re-mix of "I don''t wanna" is a typical dance/hip-hop style re-mix that is much longer than the original (7:17) & is also sped up somewhat. The re-mix of "Mad Hatters" is very similar in style it & clocks in at (6:19). The highlight from the new songs, though, is the stripped down jazzier version of "I Don''t Wanna Go On With You Like That". It''s still a fast song but all you hear is Elton on the piano with some nice b/g vocals & it is very intimate (think Unplugged). I almost like it better than the original & i''m not even a big fan of stripped down music.

As for the re-mastering, it is definitely an improvement over the original sound but only somewhat. The biggest difference being a much punchier bass & slightly louder volume. So if you already own this album, it''s not a night & day difference but if you love this album as much as I do or wanna hear the new tracks, it''s def worth the double dip.

All in all, I think this is one of Elton''s best albums & it deserves much more respect than it typically gets. A joy from beginning to end & you would be hard pressed not to find at least a few tracks here that are really enjoyable.

I bought this CD for "A Word in Spanish," which I really like. I listened to the CD in the car while driving and heard about half of it and thought it was average with a couple of good songs. Then I listened again on my computer with my Klipsch 4.1''s. Wow, some of this stuff is pretty good! So I put it on the big system with the Klipsch towers and cranked up the bass and the volume. Incredible! The Shep Pettibone remix of "I don''t wanna go on with you like that," is worth the price of the album and more. Everything else is "added value." "Heavy Traffic" is a great rock tune. Freddie Hubbard''s flugelhorn in "Mad Hatters" is a thrill and a half! And then there''s Carl Wilson singing background on "Since God Created Girls." Outstanding! If you only listened once, listen again! And more closely. This is rapidly becoming my favorite Elton John album. And yes, there are a few songs on it I don''t care for, but that''s true of most albums. Oh, and lest I forget, Elton John is pretty good too. (Just kidding, he is awesome as usual!)

Marginally better then "Ice on Fire"

Marginally better then "Ice on Fire". The production is once again a let down. "A Word in Spanish", "I Don''t Wanna Go..." and "Mad Hatters" are the only good tracks here. The rest of the tracks sound like B-side filler.

When I first heard this album in full it seemed like a mix bag of forgettable 80''s songs, however I was pleasantly surprised when I gave it a second go. Some tracks might sound a bit obscure when heard at first but trust me these are growers. Town of Plenty is uptempo and poppy, Goodbye Marlon Brando is a rocker and there''s a continuation New Yorker track in Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters (part two) that sounds nothing like the 72 classic with all it''s electro synths and such, but does sport trendy lyrics. There are some fine ballads here with A Word of Spanish and Japanese Hands though they can''t be compared to Elton''s work a few years prior. The Camera Never Lies reminds me of Healing Hands in it''s rhythm and Poor Cow sounds a bit like Ego but that could just be to me... Heavy Traffic has some samba flavour with it''s shakers and Since God Invented Girls , harmonies harmonies harmonies (Can anybody say Beach Boys). All in all the album fits well together. It sounds retro eighties with the keyboards and synths and there are some clubby bonus remixes on here too. I don''t see how Rope Around A Fool failed to make the original 88 release though. It''s great bluesy uptempo track with prominent piano/keyboard section and sounds as if it was always meant to be on the album as it is now. After the un-commercial Leather Jackets, Elton got up and dusted himself off showing he wasn''t out for the count just as this album title suggests.

Had to send to the US for this one. This is the problem you get with replacing your vinyl. You get the original one then the cd version and when you do that you have to get the american versions.But this is not a bad album with some great sounds.
