  • This is something of a reunion album; after working apart for some time, Elton John and lyricist Bernie Taupin, the wordsmith behind John's biggest '70s hits, come together again. Also on board after a long hiatus are original Elton John Band members Davey Johnstone and Nigel Olsson. Even "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" duet partner Kiki Dee shows up, singing backing vocals on "When a Woman Doesn't Want You" and "Understanding Women" (seems to be a theme there). Highlights include the hit title song and the anti-Thatcher anti-'80s nostalgia piece "Sweat It Out," which includes the memorable line "She-devils were ruling Britain" and gives Elton the opportunity to stretch out with one of his best (and longest) piano solos ever.
