Synopsis

Album Description
Vinyl pressing of Hysteria by Def Leppard. Four years after Pyromania, Def Leppard were a comparative write-off. Dismissed by critics, seemingly dogged by bad luck, with drummer Rick Allen losing an arm in a car accident, Hysteria had to be an album to turn heads. In retrospect, it sounded like the first true Hard Rock record for the CD generation. Ambitious arrangements and remixes on songs such as "Rocket" and "Armaggedon It," a crisp single in "Animal," and a dense paean to love with "Love Bites," all bets were off. Def Leppard had created an intriguing language of ideas that still speaks volumes more than a decade on.

What can I say. This album defined Def Leppard (probably more so than Pyromania). It's a classic, and IMHO, one of the greatest of all time.

What can be said about Hysteria? It's an absolute EPIC album which minus two or three tracks could serve as a greatest hits in it's own right. If you aren't sure about Def Leppard, get this album.... It will give you all you need to know about this band, and their signature sound.

Best ever album!!!!!
Lalit Ganapathy | 07/07/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Listen - I can go on and dilate about each and every track and compare it against the Beatles, Stones, Floyd, Zep, and the Who.

But I won't - because this is one of the best albums EVER.

If you give this album an honest listen, and still don't agree it's one of the best albums ever, then you're either tone deaf, or there's something seriously wrong with you!

Really! This one's a no-brainer people!!!!"
