CD Reviews

In many countries this album sold well

"In many countries around the world this album sold very well at the time it was released.It is not a bad album.It does take a number of listens before it grows on you.Many of elton johns albums years later are appreciated and this means that in my opinion he is always years ahead of the music of the year he releases his albums.During the 80s it was only in america elton did not have a top ten album.In many countries around the world he had many top ten albums.A good example of this is Australia.In australia during the 80s these albums made top ten:
Jump Up,Too Low For Zero,Breaking Hearts,Ice On Fire,Leather Jackets,Live In Australia,Reg Strikes Back,Sleeping With The Past And a year later in 1990 Sleeping With The Past Made Number One."

"I saw Elton John live at the time Leather Jackets was about to be released. He played Paris live that night. He was truly proud of Paris and I thought it was going to be the first single. There is so much B-side material from this time. Billy and the Kids, Lord Of The Flies, Highlander and a completely different mix of Heartache All Over The World. I'd love to see a re-issue with the B-sides."

"Everyone knows this ain't one of the best Elton albums-- he regularly disowns it during interviews-- but it does have some great material on it. Why is 'Victim Of Love' remastered and not 'Leather Jackets'? It's about as good as 'Ice On Fire' and 'Breaking Hearts'. Songs like 'Paris', 'Slow Rivers' and 'Angeline' deserve better treatment, along with those missing b-sides. Rocket has done a fine job with all those discs missed by the so-called Classic Years. Get onto it, Rocket!"
