I used to own this album back in the day as a kid who listened to hair metal. I don't think I played it much as I don't remember too much about it, maybe the odd thing, bringing on the headache and the great instrumental track. It does sound decent now though, a good nwobhm record, I guess I wouldn't want to listen to what came after this nowadays, when mutt Lange produced them within an inch of their lives and they became cheesy.

Def Leppard's best album, easily. This record just had such a good flow to it, there's a real mood with the song placement unlike Leppard's other albums, I love almost every song by Leppard but having them thoughtfully put together on this record just adds to their enjoyment, something I wish their other albums had. A real underrated classic here though.

Great album. Mutt Lange starts to define Def Leppard's sound, which becomes solidified on Pyromania. Great ballad in Bringin on the Heartbreak, and some great songs in Lady Strange, You Got Me Runnin', Let it Go, High N Dry (Saturday Night), and the instrumental Switch 625.

Your typical 80's Rock album with a ballad thrown in 'Bringin' On the Heartbreak' a very listenable rock album.

A superior album to On Through the Night on the strength of a higher number of go to tracks (four compared to two). Still fairly straight middle of the road hard rock that will not fool anyone as to which decade it is from.
