Reg Strikes Back

As Elton John's first album for MCA Records, Reg Strikes Back received a considerable amount of hype upon its release, but it didn't quite live up to his early-'80s records for Geffen. That's not to say it wasn't enjoyable. Sure, "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters, Pt. 2" is unnecessary and there is some amiable filler scattered throughout the record, but the clenched dance-pop of "I Don't Wanna Go on With You Like That" and the ballad "A Word in Spanish" make for strong singles and help keep the record entertaining.
