and Dry | Pyromania | Hysteria
and Dry (Reviewed by Iluvthe80s):
1981 album by Def Leppard has become my favorite of all of their albums.
All the songs rock on there. If you don't have this album and just have
"Pyromania" or "Hysteria", give this one a spin. It's
definately worth the money. My fave tracks on this album are: "Let
It Go", "Bringing On The Heartbreak", and "Lady Strange".
1. Let It
2. Another Hit And Run
3. High 'N' Dry (Saturday Night)
4. Bringin' On The Heartbreak
6. You Got Me Runnin'
7. Lady Strange
8. On Through The Night
9. Mirror, Mirror (Look Into My Eyes)
10. No No No

is the album that really put Def Leppard on the map in the states. It
was considered one of 1983's best selling albums and has remained a consistent
seller ever since. This album saw a transition of guitarist with Pete
Willis leaving during the recording of the album. Phil Collen joined and
fitted right in.
This album was ranked #62 in Rolling Stone magazine's 100 Greatest Albums
Of The Eighties Poll. Personally, I would have ranked it into my Top 20.
as "Foolin'", "Photograph", and "Rock Of Ages"
found widespread airplay on MTV and many other video shows in 1983. The
album was metal but with a more pop sound than their first few albums
had. My favorite songs on this album are :"Foolin"", "Too
Late For Love", and "Rock Rock (Till You Drop).
1. Rock Rock
(Till You Drop)
4. Too Late For Love
5. Die Hard The Hunter
7. Rock Of Ages
8. Comin' Under Fire
9. Action! Not Words
10. Billy's Got A Gun
to this review by caligula):
agree, I think Pyromania is the best album of the early 80's and would
rank in the top 5 of all time. Pyromania and AC/DC's Back in Black were
staples at every party i ever went to. we used it to ward off the Culture
Club fans. Every song is good, my fav is Foolin and Photogragh, just listening
to the album brings back memories of Highschool.
to this review by Zel):
I second that! Rock of Ages and Foolin' were my two favortie
but I did like Photograph too. This album was among a small few that remained
a staple throughout my entire 80s experience, it has become even more
meaningful now as just the most brief guitar riff can take you back in
time to the exact place you heard it.
to this review by VioletFoxx):
definately agree, Pyromania is one of the best albums of all time in my
world. I still think it's their best effort to date, though I love many
of the things that came after. Fav tracks for me are Photgraph and Stagefright.
And you couldn't go to a party and not hear something off this one. It

you haven't heard at least one song from this album...where the hell have
you been??? LOL
This album was years in the making, waiting on Rick Allen to get back
to drumming after losing an arm in a car accident. It could have been
the death of the band, waiting to put the album out, but was ironically
their biggest album to date.
PourSome Sugar On Me
Gods Of War
Don't Shoot Shotgun
Love and Affection
favorite from this album would have to be Excitable. It's upbeat, and
it just makes you feel great. If you like your rock with some sexy overatures
and fun undertones, then BUY THIS!!

know most people love this album, but I absolutely hate it. It sounds
too electronic and cold for me. Give me High n Dry or Pyromania anyday.
to this review by Iluvthe80s:
is a good album. The only problem was that the singles off this album
to this review by Shabooh:
album is the 1980s at its finest. Its a little on the commercial side(after
all, look who produced it) but it closed out the 80s spending well over
a year in the top 40 and had a run of almost 2 years. I still remember
"love Bites" and "Never Tear us apart" by INXS fighting
for the number 1 position on my local charts in October of 1988. It might
not have the raw edge of Pyro or the albums before it but this was the
height of the bands career after all.
adrenelize came out in April of 1992. Ugh.
brings back memories of my youth and many repeated listens drinking beer
around a fire that we would sneak off too. Not a bad song on it(except
the previous post saying that some was overplayed which is so true)and
with over an hour of music you needn't had to change the disc. Oh yeah,
I still listened to the cassette then. Auto Reverse was a wonderful thing!
to this review by Zel:
was their best but I wouldnt' trade this LP for the world. Along with
these great tracks serves a memory of a drive, a friend, a lover, an moment.
This is one of those cd's that can take you back in time feeling the soft
fall wind on your cheeks and scent of rain in the air. Anyone throwing
a half decent party during this time had to have this album handy for
it to be a great night.
to this review by caligula:
loved Pyromania, so I was extremely excited for the release of Hysteria,
and yes I liked it, still do to some extent, but man they really overplayed
the singles especially Poor Some Sugar on Me. They beat that song to death
like a rented mule.
to this review by Gman:
Spring Break: 1 Week
Le Baron Convertible: 14K
One CD: Def Leapord's Hysteria
Driving Up and Down the Beach Blaring the One CD Over and Over Again:
to this review by VioletFoxx:
was a great album, but I'd never trade my copy of Pyromania for it. The
hits were way overplayed, but I still turn em up whenever I hear em.
to this review by Recker:
I couldn't quite get into Def Leppard, but Hysteria was
a good song.
