Def Leppard – Vault: Def Leppard Greatest Hits Reviews

Vault: Def Leppard Greatest Hits

To have resisted Def Leppard’s radio power in their heyday, you’d have to have been a critic–and even some of us could hardly argue with the likes of “Photograph,” “Animal,” and “Bringin’ on the Heartbreak.” Vault covers a decade and a half of hits by the one-time wonder boys of the new wave of British metal, but perhaps inevitably concentrates on singles from the multiplatinum Pyromania and Hysteria. It offers little meaning beyond fun fun fun, but there are hooks here that Noel (more…)

    Def Leppard became one of the most successful bands of the'80s and one of my favorites from the decade. They achieved 15 Top 40 singles from 1983-1993 and had several radio and MTV favorites that missed the Top 40, most of them are represented here. There were some complaints about certain songs not true, but I have found the chart statistics and shows how high they chart.
      “Pour Some Sugar on Me” (Video Edit) – The most popular song Lep leads from this collection. Singalong A large, heart-pounding rocker This is also an alternative version, with the on HYSTERIA: It is to edit the video which is longer and, in my opinion, is superior. (Peaking at # 2)
      “Photograph” – one of the breakthrough hit PYROMANIA: Another great rocker with an unforgettable riff written “all about Marilyn Monroe,” as Joe would say. (Peaking at # 12)
      “Love Bites” – the collection of the first is a great ballad from Hysteria. (the band only # 1 single)
      “Let's Get rocked – first of two ADRENALIZE title is a fun little rocker covers inspired by The Simpsons (or so says Joe). (Peaking at # 15)
      “Two Steps Behind” – a standout ballad from the last action HERO soundtrack is an acoustic track on the basis that the original on a B-side! (Peaking at # 12)
      “Animal” – mid-tempo rocker HYSTERIA It is a rock radio staple even today. (Peaking at # 19)
      “Foolin '” – second PYROMANIA track is a mysterious ballad / rocker with plenty of atmosphere and a great guitar solo (peaking at # 28)
      “Rocket” (Video Edit) – Tongue-in-cheek rocker from HYSTERIA lists, which mainly consists of songs by great classic rock songs. Unfortunately, it is in a shorter edit than the album version. (Peaking at # 12)
      “When Love and Hate Collide” – new songs for the album is a very good ballad, which had an electric solo, but it is fine as it is. (unfortunately only on peak # 58)
      “Armageddon It” – RIP-roaring rocker from hysteria and good will. (Peaking at # 3)
      “Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad” – the other ADRENALIZE track, an average of this ballad. (Peaking at # 12)
      “Rock of Ages” – PYROMANIA last track is an unforgettable bombastic rockers who actually steals it from the choir of the Bible! (Peaking at # 16)
      “hysteria” – last song from the album of the same name. A kind of good ballad. (Peaking at # 10)
      “Miss You In a Heartbeat” – a ballad from RETROACTIVE okay was a bigger hit in Canada (# 4) than America (# 39) and therefore it is too.
      'On the Heartbreak “- only a trace of High' N 'DRY surprisingly only peaked at # 61, but a Classic Rock radio staple foods due to its strong exposure on early MTV. There is no “Switch 625″ because it is not on the radio to be played. Great song ever.
      Well, that is, all hits. There are problems: HYSTERIA over-emphasized (though all of them were hits, and there is still no such!), Not from the night (though no songs were hits), and missed the two other Top 40 tracks from ADRENALIZE ( “Make Love Like a Man”, # 36, “Stand Up”, # 34). But overall, this is a great collection for newcomers and casual fans (and the only place to PSSOM edit videos on a CD).

    Great Collection of Hits
    Even though most of these hits are from the MONSTER album Hysteria (which is not a bad thing whatsoever), there are plenty hits here to satisfy any newcomer Def Lep fan or any…

    Def Leppard Greatest Hits.
    Good CD, not a big fan, but I like some of the songs and remember growing up watching music videos. This cd has the good ones: Photograph, Foolin’,Rock of ages.

    This review is from: Vault: Def Leppard Greatest Hits ( Audio CD) This includes a whole lot of Def Leppard's career. It is a great presentation of the songs to all foreigners, Def Leppard obsessed with them. My only complaints are the exclusion of any material on through the night, and a high amount dull 'n dry and adrenalize material. Oh, and the Commissioner, for your information, Rick Allen lost his left arm (not a criticism, just a friendly reminder).

    Great mix of songs that I remember from my high school years. I loved the Pyromania album, but this one brings together a lot of great songs. Rock On!
