Greatest Def Leppard Albums


The Top TenXW


The greatest album of all time. I still haven't heard an album that matches the brilliant songwriting, immaculate production values and stunning consistency that Hysteria possesses.

Basically, is a greatest hits. Adrenalize still doesn't convince me, it doesn't have the same energy and variety. Long Live Hysteria, wondrous album

Love every song on this album!

Every one of these songs could have made it onto the Vault, they are all amazing - Shake_n_Bake13

I have always loved Foolin. It so great. Then we have Photograph and Rock of Ages. This is the best. Although how much I want Adrenalize to be in front of High n Dry I can not vote on it.

Should be #1 perfect mix of hard rock and pop rather than hysteria which was more on the pop side. Photograph is one of the greatest songs of all time in my opinion never gets old.

Pyromania is old school rock at it's very best. Listen to the guitar solos and general musicianship. In my opinion the best album before they became too commercial.

Yes! Because is not only a good album, pyromania is the best.. - JrG

3High 'N' Dry

Definitely Leppard at their best. Before they gave a damn about record sales and making ballads for their future target female audience.

AC/DC quality guitar riffs and awesome vocals really make this album. My favorite by definitely Leppard, definitely the most rocking!

One awesome blood pumping hard rock album. After this album it was goodbye definitely Leppard and hello definitely Leotards and leg warmers.

Most underrated album they ever had. Came out at the wrong time.

5On Through the Night

Back when they were a cool heavy metal band, before they ever sold out. No overproduced radio pop here, just hard rocking'.

Best album from them. ¡This is true the Hard Rock!


This is like hysteria with a modern edge. There is a little pyro influence but nothing significantly noticeable. Just a great album. Paper sun is so underperformed. That song would fit right in on hysteria. It's the 90s version of gods of war. Promises is an instant classic too. On sick of the hipsters crying about how they sold out from hysteria onward. They just perfected their craft. Plus Collen added a different flair to the band. Willis had a similar style to Clark so the sound wasn't as dynamic. Back to euphoria, great album. A couple of the ballads are a little weak, but the rest is great!

Deserves to be in the top 5. Promises and Paper Sun, and other songs capture the classic definitely Leppard sound that had been sadly lost in the previous release.

7Retro Active

This album (ok, it is more of a compilation:) just rocks, except for a few cheese ballads, should be at least above Adrenalize. One of the albums you could spend your money without regretting.

Ring of Fire is the best song on the album


3rd in line behind pyro and hysteria. After Slang it went downhill sorry to say

This album is something new but still sounds Leppard. That's why I like it
