Leather Jackets, released in 1986, is the twentieth studio album by Elton John.

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

It is widely believed among fans of his that Elton John's career low point, both commercially and critically, was 1979's Victim of Love. An ill-fated attempt at disco that was not only executed poorly in general, but also came around at a time when disco's popularity was quickly dying off, it would take the former superstar almost half a decade to make a respectable recovery from this period. And indeed, the success of 1983's Too Low for Zero and singles such as "I Guess That's Why They Call It the.
