By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 28 May 2009
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
It was always going to be hard to follow his hugely successful 1983 album, Too low for zero, which is regarded as something a comeback album. Not that Elton had ever been away, but his albums during the period 1977 to 1982 aren't generally held in such high regard as most of his early albums released between 1970 and 1976. Actually, Elton's albums from that period aren't all as bad as some would have you believe. I enjoy some of them, particularly Blue moves and 21 at 33, but it would be fair to say that Elton made some mistakes during that period, the biggest by far being the album Victim of love. So the 1983 comeback (if that's what it was) surprised a lot of people who had written Elton off as a has-been. But with this album, Elton proved that Too low for zero was no fluke. While Breaking hearts doesn't quite match the brilliance of its predecessor, it comes close. With basically the same people involved, and the same recording studio in Montserrat (some years before the volcanic eruption that devastated the island), the sound and style is similar to Too low for zero, the difference being in the songs.

Four of the songs here became British hits (though only two were big hits), while there were three hits in America, although only two hits were the same songs in both countries. The standout track on the album is Sad songs say so much. It made the American top five and the British top ten. The second and biggest British hit (where it made the top five) from the album was Passengers. The lyrics are difficult to understand, but the liner notes to this re-mastered CD suggest that it is actually about South African apartheid, so the train and its would-be passengers are metaphorical. Passengers never became an American single, for whatever reason.

With the commercial success of the previous year's "Too Low For Zero" which spawned a return to form, a return to his classic band, and a return to the sole lyricism of Bernie Taupin, Elton went back with producer Chris Thomas to Air studios in Montserrat and cut "Breaking Hearts"....effectively "Too Low For Zero: Part 2"!! The two popular songs here, "Sad Songs" and "Passengers" reached the UK Top10 during the hot summer of '84 whilst Elton was performing successful shows at Wembley.
Whilst containing some fairly ok songs, the overall feel of this album lacked the cool detachment and cohesiveness of its predecessor. The impression here is Elton treading water, being fairly complacent and concentrating on quantity rather than quality. That said, it is by far a much better effort than "Jump Up" and "21 at 33".
The jewel here is the title track, a dark brooding early 50s style ballad with an instant memorable melody, it benefits greatly by the fact that its just piano and vocal (no overblown orchestration here thankfully!) with The Platters-type harmonies of Davey, Dee and Nigel which harks back to the Yellow Brick Road era. This song has long been forgotten and deserves its place on any compilation or love song collection. That it should lead into the silly "Li'L'Frigerator" is a major fall from grace. There are other interesting moments: "In Neon" is a pleasant countryish song with lyrics, perhaps a paen to the trappings of fame -or the lack of it- in the shimmering city of Hollywood:
"Lipstick and Lashes, the traces of stardom
Lit up on a billboard so everyone see's them in neon"
"Slow Down Georgie" describes the situation of a friend who's in love with the wrong kind. Its let down by some hackneyed lyrics but is saved by a certain joie de vivre.

A great album by all accounts

but where are the b sides?
Elton recorded several more songs, some which were b sides of the singles, and there would have been plenty of room on the CD... this is a fault of nearly all his 80s back catalogue reissues apart from Too low for zero

It's funny how an album with 2 top ten singles included, one of which also got to the top 5, isn't an entry album for the remastered label: 'Elton John-The Classic Years'. However, this does not marr the quality of the album.
With a medium speed ballad like Sad Songs, an African-style rock song like Passengers or a shunting rock beat like Restless, it has to be of some good.
Passengers is my favorite track on the album, and my second favourite song by Elton John in general. Although it peaked in at number 5 in the charts, it hasn't seemed popular as it did back then, but if you want a rock album to keep you singing and dancing, this one's for you.

Had this previously on cassette! (Showing age there!) So it was great to be reunited with some great old songs. Elton at his 80's best!
