    I have a club issue (Columbia House) version of this LP which is not in the database. Cat # GHS 24031

      After the comeback and mega-success of 2 Low 4 Zero this album had an awful lot to live up to. Did it? No. What's important here is that the old band of Davy Johnstone, Dee Murray and Nigel Olsen are back on board as Elton tries to find the old magic of his 70s work and even though the band play as an ensemble, a lot had changed in the music world from 1974 to 1984. Production was now click-clack, synth driven and quantized in the digital domain of MIDI. There are some standouts such as 'In Neon', 'Passengers' and the big gospel grandeur of 'Sad Songs'. The title track itself, 'Breaking Hearts', harks back to 'Elton's Song' with just vocal and piano with a sparse arrangement of vocals for the chorus. The rockier material is a little lacklustre and the band fail to cook on these forgettable outings. Maybe live they could conjour up more energy. All in all, it's not a bad album but the real meat is not as plentyful as one would like!
