Format:Audio CD
As of June 2006, Def Leppard has released 3 compilations: "Vault", "Rock of Ages: The Definitive Collection", and this set, the "Best Of". (If you want to inlcude the hard-to-find "Rock Vault", which includes Vault and a seperate disc of previously released tracks, then it would be 4 compilations). And in my opinion, this one is their best so far, but not by much.

Why? What makes this collection better than "Rock of Ages: The Definitive Collection"?

It's true that both this set and "ROA" have almost the same set of songs, including the usual suspects, like "Photograph", "Bringing On The Heartbreak" and "Pour Some Sugar On Me".

It's the songs that one contains that the other one doesn't, that really makes the difference for me, regardless of the price.

The songs on "Best Of" that are not on "ROA" are:
"Action", "Long, Long Way To Go", "Make Love Like A Man", "Waterloo Sunset"

The songs on "ROA" that are not on "Best Of" are:
"Miss You In A Heartbeat", "Switch 625", "No Matter What", "Mirror, Mirror (In My Eyes)", "Paper Sun"

Also, there are edited versions of "Rocket" and "Pour Some Sugar On Me" on "ROA" as opposed to the album versions that are on "Best Of". But "ROA" has a total of 35 tracks as opposed to "Best Of" which has 34. And "ROA" costs about $10 USD less than "Best Of".

My preference is "Best Of". But, which one should YOU buy? It all depends on which one has the tracks you really want and how much you want to spend? But, hey, you can always buy both, right?

4.0 out of 5 stars Nicely done, with one minor flaw November 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Whew - about time! So hard to please everyone in the greatest hits arena, but I think the Leps did an admirable job with this collection. Hard to believe I'm withholding an entire star due to its lacking one song - "Me and My Wine" - but, c'mon, fellas, that is one ultra-rare track that actually has its own video/was a semi-hit here in the States. Sure hope it'll make a domestic comp 'cause that is one kickin' song. OK, make it 4.5 stars...

Really digging the non-sequential ordering of the tracks, too. I've always been a fan of such a collection since, if ordered properly, I think it lends itself to more of a concert setting. Mellencamp just did it on his double-disc hits and nice to see the Leps following suit (must be a Polygram thing).

Oh, to the reviewer who bemoaned the fact there's only one song from On Through the Night, methinks you miss that both Wasted and Rock Brigade are from that album. No biggie and hate to slag a fellow fan, but facts am facts.

A nice addition to the first four albums for me and a "hell yeah!" to the band for sparing me having to get anything besides Slang from the post-Hysteria era.

5.0 out of 5 stars The definitive Def Leppard - so far! February 7, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Reworking "Vault" and adding songs from "Slang," "Euphoria," and "X," Def Leppard have created "Best of." This 2 disc set includes songs from every album Def Leppard have made. As such, it's a great career retrospective for a band that is still going strong more than 25 years after forming. Leppard fans from the beginning can welcome this album as it mixes well all the varied songs of their career. New fans can appreciate where Def Leppard came from and where the band is going.
Having the songs in a non-chronological order allows the listener to hear one of the newest, "Now" from "X," right before "Rock Brigade" from the very first Leppard album "On Through the Night." What strikes the listener then is how the band has changed and also how it hasn't changed in the 25 years between those songs. The set also mixes well the real rocking tunes with the signature power ballads. Despite Phil Collen's note in the liner that he really doesn't like ballads, one can argue no hard rock band was better at these than Def Leppard.
The North American release has been held up as the record company wasn't sure "Waterloo Sunset" was a good enough song for a new one on our side of the pond. I must disagree as I find it an awesome version and if released here, it should be a hit. This is a teaser for an album of covers, and if all the songs on that album are as good, I can't wait.
True fans will argue the merits of the song list, but one thing they can't deny, is that this set truly showcases "The Best of" Def Leppard.

Well, if I had some extra money, I'd buy this version as well, but I'm waiting for the U.S. version which will be titled ROCK OF AGES: The Definative Collection, which is due out May 17th. Go to the band's website if you want to see the cover art, which is MUCH better then this version! Here are other differences between the 2

Action, Long Long Way To Go & Make Love Like A Man will not be on this version, the latter one baffles me because MLLAM was actually a hit here in the U.S.

However, Switch 625, Miss You In A Heartbeat, Mirror Mirror & Paper Sun WILL be on this version!

Foolin' is on disc 1 instead of disc 2, given that it was a much bigger hit here in the U.S.

The tracks on disc 2 are in a different order.

There will be a different cover song on this version, a cover of Badfinger's "No Matter What"

I'm definately looking forward to getting this to hear what the older tracks sound like remastered, as well as having all of these great songs on 2 cds!.

It is fun to relive your youth with goofy rock like this. Reading the liner notes is fun. They keep mentioning how no one got the humor. I think Spinal Tap was based on these guys.
