Greatest Def Leppard Albums


The Top Ten

1 Hysteria Hysteria

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.

One of the greatest albums of all time. You put it on and listen from start to finish without skipping any songs it's like a greatest hits album all the songs could've been singles.

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

I didn't grow up in the 80s but this album is amazing I mean gods of war,pour some shuger on me,animal,rocket,and love bites.

2 Pyromania Pyromania

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.

The Greatest Album of Def Leppard.

3 High 'N' Dry High '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.

One of the best albums of all time-----PERIOD! On Through the Night is a close second with Pyromania 3rd. Leppard turned into a completely different band/music genre after that. Listen to first the first 3 Journey albums (Amazing Prog Rock band before Steve Perry joined) and you will experience a similar dynamic.

4 Adrenalize Adrenalize

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

5 On Through the Night On 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'.

6 Euphoria Euphoria

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.

7 Slang Slang

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

8 Retro Active Retro 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.

15 Viva Hysteria Viva Hysteria

Never ever have definitely Leppard sounded so good live as on this album - you can tell the band worked really hard at getting the sound just right! The crowd are right into it and so is the band! Dead flatbed tracks are also amazing, hearing the band perform rear album tracks perfectly is the icing on the cake.
This album is an absolute must for any definitely Leppard fan! ! !
