  • Like David Bowie, Elton John made himself over in the 1980s from his over-the-top glam-rocker image to one that was less theatrical, more refined, even slick. The music was affected as well, as the '80s saw Elton flirting with disco, new wave, and several lyricists. He also flirted with danger, dropping some of the more obvious trappings of the Me Decade (the big glasses, for example) but remaining perilously close to its hedonistic excesses.
  • His principal songwriting partners on THE FOX were the sometimes-estranged Bernie Taupin, and Gary Osborne. Production duties fell to Chris Thomas, who produced successful records for cutting-edge bands of the moment like the Pretenders. There's a bit more piano on this record than on some previous releases, such as on the opener, "Breaking Down the Barriers," which barrels forward on the strength of Elton's propulsive keyboard, and "Heart in the Right Place," which has the bite of some of Elton's early angry songs. The disco-tinged "Nobody Wins" did moderately well as a single, but "Chloe" is the stand-out track, a classic Elton ballad which should have been a big hit.
