I hear some Pour Some Sugar On Me, in the verse…like the guitars.
So far, of the three songs released, Take What You Want, is my favorite, and I cannot get it out of my head.
I think all three new songs that have been released are decent and a step up from their recent catalogue over the past 10-15 years. Still, in my opinion, Def Leppard’s On Through The Night, High N Dry & Pyromania are the creme of the Def Leppard crop. I don’t know for sure but I would imagine Hysteria is their highest selling album. There’s a lot of great stuff on Hysteria and I like that record a lot. But to me the sound went a little too mainstream and the band has continued on a more pop rock trend since. However there are some classic Lep songs out there that remind me of the early days such as White Lightning & Paper Sun for example. I’m hesitant to pre-order the new album. I am gonna wait to listen on Spotify first. If I like it then I’ll buy it. I’m a firm believer in buying cds and vinyl vs streaming. Nothing beats having product in hand.
I love Paper Sun, but I believe, it is the only song I listen to, on Euphoria. I cannot recall for certain, because I have not heard that album in over a decade.
As for Hysteria, Mutt Lange wanted to make a hard rock version of Michael Jackson’s Thriller, and that is why the album is so commercial and poppy. He wanted songs that would appeal to the masses, and get maximum exposure on the radio, and MTV. He succeeded in his goal, however I agree with you, that the band’s first three album, were the pinnacle, of their sound. Also, for me, in particular, High N’ Dry and Pyromania. On Through The Night is okay, but sound was a little raw for me, and the material was not quite as melodic.
I always say, I need my Leppard to have an edge, but also with a bit of a polish. 🙂
I don’t like this one.
Nor do I like Kick. Both throwaway pop drivel more suited for an NSync comeback album.
Too bad. I honestly loved Take What You Want. It actually got me anticipating that they changed their musical direction.
Pyromania sold 10 million plus copies yet this band is always trying to recreate their “masterpiece” Hysteria -lol!
They should have released Take What You Want on April 1 for an April Fools Joke.
There is no question, their hard rock sound was best.
Ugh, terrible! I like “Kick,” love “Take What You Want,” but this one? If I buy this album I’ll definitely be skipping this song!
I’m so impressed these successful well to do guys , dug deep and wrote an amazing relevant collection of music , I ordered the vinyl!
I just read that Alison Krauss is a guest vocalist on two songs. I like Alison but I’m definitely not getting my hopes up for this album after hearing this news.
