The Jump Up album of 1982 found Elton starting to fire on all cylinders again. After the sheer intensity of the early 'seventies cuminating in the flawed masterpiece of Blue Moves, he and Bernie had run out of steam. The late 'seventies and early eighties saw him experiment with new musical styles - typified by the frankly dreadful Victim of Love. He also branched out with new writing partners including Tom Robinson and Judie Tzuke. Chief amongst these collaborators was Gary Osbourne, a lyricist who would write to melodies that Elton had composed. With Bernie the lyric had always come first. Perhaps unsurprisingly, this lent a Moon, June, Spoon feel to much of Osbourne's output. However, by Jump Up they were actually producing some good stuff. 'Blue Eyes' is perhaps the only John/Osbourne classic, but 'Dear John' is a driving rocker enlivened by Jeff Porcaro's beefy drumming and 'Princess'is a decent piece of pop. Interesting on this album is a first collaboration with future Oscar winning partner Tim Rice. 'Legal Boys' is a pained tale of divorce and displays a lyrical depth rare in pop songs. But, the main point of Jump Up was that Bernie (despite having never really left the scene) was back as chief lyricist. 'Empty Garden', Bernie's heartfelt and shocked response to the assassination of their good friend John Lennon was the first classic John/Taupin composition for half a decade. Yes it is 'funny how one insect can damage, so much grain'. 'Where Have all the Good Times Gone,' is a nostalgic rocker by two men heading towards middle age and 'All Quiet on the Western Front' a tender eulogy to the Great War dead.Read more ›

When is this recording gonna be remastered? It's much, much better than 'Ice On Fire' which has already had the treatment. 'Jump Up' is Elton's most underrated album of the 80s. The singles here are Elton classics ("Blue Eyes" and "Empty Garden") but just about ANY of the songs here could've been singles.
While later albums tend to suffer heavily from bad synthesiser sounds, this album is just Elton and the band knocking out tune after tune. "Legal Boys" and "Ball And Chain" move along effortlessly and "Spiteful Child" and "Dear John" just rock (well, as much as Elton ever rocked in the 80s). "Princess" is a "Little Jeannie" kind of mid-tempo love song and the closer, "All Quiet On The Western Front" is as poignant as a closing ballad gets.
"I Am Your Robot" is the only dispensable song here-- and even that's not as bad as some of the travesties that would appear on Elton's other 80s discs. Get this now if you're a casual Elton fan and haven't heard it-- but then again, it MIGHT be worth your while waiting for the remaster and those extra tracks (if it ever comes out).

Well after Elton and Bernie Parted company for a while, Elton collaborated with other Lyricists, the main one being Gary Osbourne. I was led to believe that the MAGIC Had returned on the Fantastic Album "2 Low for Zero", but alas this is not true.(Well obviously someone elses thoughts)
I Had Long sought the recording of the song about the Death of John Lennon, and here you will find it. FANTASTIC, as are most of the other tracks.
This Album MARKS THE START of the Rebirth of TAUPIN/JOHN Compositions and I would recommend it very highly to all Fans of Elton John.
There are some Truly Wonderful Tracks on this and any Fan should DEFINATELY have it in their Collection.
