Just a good way of getting into Deaf Leppard - 75%

exortum, November 20th, 2011

If you are too much into heavy metal this could be an interesting experience, but this compilation will surely not give you a lot of fast and strong guitars, in stead you will find hard rock music and a classic stile that must not be underrated.

Certainly if you like rock this compilation will be easy listening and will give you the “sex, drugs & rock” experience, and will also give you a general idea of who is Def Leppard, the selection is based on the popular songs, so there are going to be a lot of heavier and better jewels lost in this compilation.

What can be significant if you buy the CD is that the booklet has a series of comments on the songs, including funny experiences and memories, you could have an idea of who are this guys while reading their own anecdotes.

Maybe this “best of” is not the best of the world, but you will have a cool experience while listening, and also will give you more rock culture, so if you are looking a good time for drinking with friends or you are just looking up for a hard rock time this record is a good option.

The Best Def Leppard Complation - EVER - 100%

Kristos_666, March 8th, 2005

Without a doubt Def Leppard are one of the many pioneers of the NWOBHM. Through out their illustrious 28 year career they have many ups and downs, Rick Allen losing his arm, Steve Clark (R.I.P) due to alcholism in 1991, etc, but still manage to crank out great metal. This is their newest album, and the best compliation they have released. Coming out in 2004, along with a Best Of the videos DVD, this album contains all the hits you know and love. A speical double CD, the first CD contains their big hits, from "Pour Some Sugar On Me" to "Photograph", "Bringin' On The Heartbreak" to "Love Bites", it provides a non stop assault of great music. The second CD contains more of their "wild side" so to speak, with songs like "Slang", "Foolin'" and "Women". It also contains a very special never before released cover, "Waterloo Sunset", originally done by a band called The Kinks. The first CD is in my opinion, a lot better, simply because it contains more of their big hits, but the second CD does contain alot of older content, including songs from their first album "On Through The Night". It contains alot of their ballads, like "Love Bites", or "When Love and Hate Collide", and the moving "Long, Long Way to Go", but this is counteracted with hits like "Action" or "Armageddon It", which are heavier, with "Action" particularly involving a killer solo. If your looking for an album to get into Def Leppard, then this is the one to go for, but make sure you see "Hysteria: The Def Leppard Story" as well, as it will aid you in your decision.
