Def Leppard frontman Joe Elliott explained the reasoning behind releasing a self-titled album at this point in the band’s career, saying, “It’s just called ‘Def Leppard’ because that’s what it sounds like. It doesn’t sounds like any one specific era of Def Leppard. It’s got everything.”

That “everything,” Elliott argued, includes bits of Def Leppard’s many influences. “You’ll listen and you go ‘Oh, that sounds like Def Leppard’ or you’ll go ‘That is Leppard, but sounds a bit like Led Zeppelin or Queen but you can hear the AC/DC or the Crosby, Stills and Nash coming through,” he predicted. “We have not shied away from anything that’s influenced us in our growing up periods of our life. Just because we’ve made the kind of music we’ve made doesn’t mean to say we don’t like all of this other stuff.”

In related news, Def Leppard’s maiden voyage of their Hysteria On the High Seas will be departing Miami this January 21st-25th. Read more about the excursion, here.

    Reminds me of Hysteria album, I guess that’s good. Maybe it will be a piece of everything they put out throughout the years. I just hope its more earlier than later…not bad…not great…

    Sounds like ‘Suger’ and Get It On by Kingdom Come. It’s a step in the right direction at least.

    Alright, second time hearing this and it’s kinda growing on me.

    I can see this as the show opener for next year’s tour.

    Their 3rd best Let Go
    1 Let It Go – High N Dry
    2 Gotta Let It Go – Sparkle Lounge
    3 Let’s Go – Def Leppard S/T

    Meh. At least it has a riff and the guitars are going. Sounds like a cross between “Pour Some Sugar on Me” and a One Direction song. My 10 year old daughter will probably like it. I used to think songs about how much a band was going to rock you at their live shows were cool, when I was a teenager. Now it’s just cheesy. I will always love the first three Def Leppard albums, and I think “Pyromania” hit the perfect blend of rock that still rocked while having enough pop sensibility to cross over to a larger audience. Unlike many I am not a fan of Hysteria save for a few songs, they became a power pop band then and have generally stayed there. They have more in common with Bon Jovi now. I’ve liked a few tracks here and there over the years, so I know they can still write songs that get my blood pumping like the old Def Leppard – but I don’t believe we’ll ever get another full record of it from them again. Just like everything else they’ve done since Hysteria, I predict I’ll like about 3 songs on the new album and won’t care if I never hear the rest of it more than once.

    Not bad, not bad at all. Certainly does sound like the riff from Sugar, just slightly evolved. I would love to hear them do High and Dry live start to finish, take an intermission, then finish up with Pyromania in it’s entirety. Now that would be a show I’d travel across the country to see.

      We can keep hoping, Kevin,

      That would be a dream come true for me too!

      D 🙂
