4.0 out of 5 stars Jump Up and Down! May 2 2004
Format:Audio CD
Elton John had started the 80s with a huge hit called Little Jeannie from a solid album called 21 At 33. He followed that album with the similar but lukewarm The Fox. Well hold on. Because on this outing, Elton John wakes up and hits the ground running. If you thought he was down and out, he was preparing his fans for a release that was truly the jump start of his career in the 1980s.
Jump Up contains some outstanding songs. Dear John, Spiteful Child, Legal Boys, Blue Eyes, Empty Garden, Where Have All The Goodtimes Gone and All Quiet On The Western Front. The production has never been stronger with thanks to Chris Thomas for giving these songs a real shine without over doing it. The tight production on songs like Spiteful Child and Legal Boys measure up to anything that came before this effort.
Elton sings convincingly and with a self-assurance that resembles his best known work. The ache in his voice during Empty Garden, the wonderful tribute to John Lennon is moving. Elton has said he had fun making this release and it shows. He and producer Chris Thomas started to gel and while the hits Blue Eyes and Empty Garden may overshadow this album, it was a perfectly well executed album that deserves to be heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'll say it once again Feb. 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
Amazon has two copies of this to review and I don't midn reviewing it twice. I like it a lt because it's fun but then it is also full of songs that could only be described as materpiece's. Blue eyes is his croon attempt that is probably his best vocal effort and then Empty garden is a touching tribute to John Lennon. But this album continues with the Adult-contemporary that started with 21 at 33. This is the album his late 70's early 80's adult contemporary was at it's peak. Princess is a romantic ballad that I love, then there's all quiet on the western front, a war tribute with an amazing finale where this piece of music is repeated but the drums each time are different. Legal boys reminds me of a Queen song but again, Elton's vocals. "Dear John" and "Spiteful Child" are fun and Ball and Chain is also a favourite, an uptempo country and western acoustic rocker that made the top 40 in the US apparently. I am your robot is a fun rocker too with a cute and lovable lyric. My least fave song, Where have all teh good times gone is qutie a great song too, has a great beat. A bit like "Don't go breaking my heart" I find his 80's albums interesting as they all seem to end [except breaking hearts adn 21 at 33] with a "solemn" ballad. That is quoting from the reviewer below but it's notable. In short, one of my favourite Elton John albums and will be appreciated by any of his fans at least for a few diamonds among the jewels.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my faves Dec 26 2003
Format:Audio CD
I wouldn't mind saying it could be one of his best. It prefectly mixes fun rockers with masterful ballads. Empty Garden is a moving tribute to John Lennon, Blue eyes is a fave of mine, a lovely ballad with strong vocals from Elton, he can croon. Then there's another fave in Princess, a romantic pop-ballad. All quiet on the western front is a good song, slow and pretty, a war tribute. Then there's sogns like I am your robot, Dear John and Spiteful Child that is just heaps of fun to listen to even if they aren't masterpieces. There's Ball and Chain, a cool C&W song and we still have a great disco number in "Where have all the good times gone?" Oh and there's also "Legal Boys", a masterpiece written with Tim Rice. Actually, 'Blue Eyes', 'Empty Garden' and 'Ball and Chain' were all hits, reaching the top 15. While his 80's albums didn't reach the top ten, this reached the top twenty.
