Read Lame poprock album 35% Hammertime March 9th, 2005
Produced by Pete Woodroffe and Def Leppard.

Limited edition came with a bonus cd; "Acoustic in Singapore"
1: Armageddon It (4:42)
2: Two Steps Behind (4:16)
3: From The Inside (3:44)
4: Animal (3:57)
5: When Love & Hate Collide (4:27)
6: Pour Some Sugar On Me (4:22)

The japanese edition has one bonus track, "Move With Me Slowly".

This album marks a departure from Def Leppard's lush hard rock sound and more towards grunge, and it did alienate parts of Def Leppard's fanbase. They reverted to their signature sound with next album "Euphoria", and pretty much ignore "Slang" when compiling setlists.
