'Cause making love to you might drive me crazy"(Love Bites)

There was a four year break between this album and Pyromania. The fact that they waited for Rick Allen to re-learn his way around a drum kit with only one arm, following his car accident in 1984, is testament to the strength of the band. There is no other band that sounds like Def Leppard. Possibly the sound which they have developed holds its foundation in the use of electric drums rather than a traditional drum kit sound. The guitars and bass are quite heavily processed which I think adds to the very 'electric' sound which they have developed. I have seen these guys live and they sure as hell kick ass!

Usually this genre is too aggressive for me, but this is too sexy to pass up. 100/100

This is not heavy metal. As an example of the hard rock/glam metal genre, this is the pinnacle of pop music. People dismiss this album as a mechanised sell-out, but this is a masterpiece. Mutt Lange's production on this LP is technically flawless. Such outstanding work done by him and the engineers on the production of this album. Soundwise, still sounds fresh and contemporary in 2018.

Def Leppard were never known for their deep and provoking lyrics, so the offerings of good old party-rock are welcome. The album's best track however is the disarmingly powerful song "Gods of War", which is decidely more serious than the other tracks. This is a fantastic pop-metal album. Subjectively however, my favourite is "Armaggedon It".

Highlights: "Pour Some Sugar on Me", "Armageddon It", "Love Bites", "Animal", "Gods of War", "Women", "Rocket", "Hysteria"

Questionable: "Love and Affection", "Excitable", "Don't Shoot Shotgun"

I never understood why I don't 'get' Def Leppard, maybe I never will.

It's all a bit over produced and robotic for me but it is a nice nostalgia trip in a way. Animal, is the highlight of this album, but in truth, it's all a bit too mechanical for me, too slick and polished. Still, a classic of the genre.

The songs which are the most enduring on this album are Animal, Gods of War, and Hysteria. They would still be good songs without the amazing production.
