Leather Jackets, released in 1986, is the twentieth studio album by Elton John. Recorded at Sol Studios in England and Wisseloord Studios in the Netherlands, it was his first album not to have any top 40 singles in either the US or the UK since 1970's Tumbleweed Connection, which had no singles released from it. It is also the poorest-charting album of his career.

Although he had re-formed his 1970s quartet and even reinstated both lyricist Bernie Taupin as well as seminal producer Gus Dudgeon earlier in the decade, Elton John failed to sustain the momentum that informed Too Low for Zero (1983), Breaking Hearts (1984), and to a lesser extent Ice on Fire (1985). Even the most ardent enthusiasts freely admit that Leather Jackets (1986) was nothing more or less than a final fulfillment of his six-album deal with Geffen Records

Do you pray to someone new When you're locked up in the rock Is the golden age dead and gone Are the hands stuck on the clock Can you talk to Buddy's bones When you spin a forty five The king ain't dead, he's just asleep Somewhere in the after life

I've long debated which is the worst Elton John album: is it his 1979 disco misfire "Victim Of Love," or the 1986 debacle "Leather Jackets"" Both albums have the same issue: Elton chases radio friendly trends at the expense of quality control, resulting in a pretty embarrassing affair. I've long gone back and forth, but as of today I can safely say "Leather Jackets" takes the cake.
