Decent Tribute To A Brilliant Band

"A bunch of unknown bands take a shot at covering several well known Leppard classics. Some are terrible; like the industrial sounding cover of "Pour Some Sugar On Me." Some are just OK: the standard sounding cover of "Wasted." The best cover is a really heavy and rocking version of "Too Late For Love." Leppard's impressive production makes them a tough band to cover, but its real cool and about time a tribute album has been made in their honor."
Decent, but not done right!

"Def Leppard, sellers of 60 million plus albums deserves a better tribute than what has been placed on Tributized. It was a good effort, but all of these bands are unknown and lack the talent to perform Leppard music. The forthcoming tribute with better known artist will be worth a buy, but this one is only good for Rock of Ages and Women. They totally butchered Pour Some Sugar On Me with that industrial sound. Other song sound like something out of a struggling club act. My recommendation is buy it, but make sure your not expecting a high level of exellence in the recording and performance."

"I like the cd because of the idea of someone finally giving Def Leppard the credit they deserve. So many of the '80's bands capitalized on Def Leppard's success and never once gave credit to this ground breaking band. They opened up the door for Heavy Metal acts to get popular top 40 status. Having said all that, if you're a fan of the Def Leppard sound, don't expect these songs to copy it. I am sure the groups played the best they could, but truth be told some of the covers are very different from the original recordings. Depending on personal taste, you may or may not like this cd. I can't imagine any die hard Def Leppard fan loving all the tracks, but stranger things have happened. Nevertheless, I am glad this cd exists as a tribute. I thank the artists for their efforts; especially for the memory of my biggest musical influence, Steve "Steamin" Clark."
