alot of good albums came out in 87' so my brother tells me back then this was well overplayed and quite a favourite of mine shame its on vinyl need a copy on cd don't I,best tracks Animal,Hysteria,Rocket,Love Bites.
This is the most well-produced album I've ever heard.
To be honest, the album bored me for the first couple of songs, but clicked into gear around halfway, Gods Of War being the stand out track, the mid section redeems the album are a poor start. 75/100
JMan - hits and record sales do not automatically equate with quality. It means that this record was promoted well, and connected with the mass public. I wouldn't use either as proof of brilliance.
That said, this is Def Leppard's best. It's big, brassy and bold, features their best playing and their most original sound.
I've listened to this album a few times over, and I'm surprised at Rolling Stone magazine for saying Hysteria isn't as good as Pyromania. This album is a lot better than Pyromania. It may not be pure rock like Pyromania, but this is a better album for many reasons:
A. When you listen to this album with big speakers, the music sounds like it's coming from all directions instead of just from the speakers.
B. Every song on it is at least 3.5 stars out of 5.
There were some songs on Pyromania I wasn't too Impressed with.
C. Half of the songs were hit singles. Women, Sugar On Me, Hysteria, Rocket, Animal, and Armageddon It.
D. 20 million copies sold.
This may be the album that started Def Leppard's slow paced transfer from rock to pop, but it's a great album. The only flaw is the drop in volume on the first track, Women. Thankfully, there's no drop on the song in my MP3.
Get this: The album released 7 singles. The covers are all a piece of a puzzle that looks like the design for the album cover, but missing two pieces. The last two pieces were realeased in a deluxe bis set 20 years later.
Really good catchy memorable songs, its just that the production of the album makes them all (literally all of them)sound exactly the same.
If the music brings back memories, it's done its job. This record does that for ppl of my generation. Unforgettable.
It is 80s rock at its bombastic best. The 1st side is literally full of hits. The 2nd side shows more of the album side. And then there are the songs that didn't make the album like Tear It Down and I Wanna Be Your Hero. Great Stuff!
Perfect album. Still rocks!
25 years later. A classic album indeed!
