Reg Strikes Back, released in 1988, is the twenty-first studio album by Elton John. It was his self-proclaimed comeback album, and his own way of fighting back against bad press. The "Reg" in Reg Strikes Back refers to John's birth name, Reginald Kenneth Dwight. In the US the album was certified gold in August 1988 by the RIAA. This was the last album that bassist Dee Murray (albeit without bass) appeared on prior to his death in 1992.

by Elton John - 14 Tracks - 1:03:33. Release date 05/15/2001.

While "Reg Strikes Back" is still very much an 80's album (heavy on synths and drum machines), the songs are uniformly strong. He even went as far as to update "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters" from "Honky Chateau," and then perform the two as a medley in concert. Pete Townsend plays guitar on the peppy opener "Town Of Plenty," and the Beach Boys chime in on "When God Invented Girls. This was the album where Elton decided to reclaim his personality, as the great Sothby's sell-off of his old gear on the cover shows.

Band Name Elton John. Album Name Reg Strikes Back. 13. I Don't Wanna Go on with You Like That (Just Elton and His Piano Mix). 14. Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters (Pt. 2) (the Renaissance Mix).

As Elton John's first album for MCA Records, Reg Strikes Back received a considerable amount of hype upon its release, but the results were considerably less inspired than his early-'80s records for Geffen. It's always a bad sign when an artist re-records or reinterprets one of his classics, as John does here with "Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters, Pt. 2," but what really sinks Reg Strikes Back are the colorless tunes.
