Should a Definitive Collection include EVERY single video? Maybe not. But in Def Leppard's case, the ratio of videos made to worldwide hits was more than 1 out of 2, so a collection with 20 videos out of 39 made will definitely miss some important videos.
Of course you can find ALL their videos in the previous DVD compilations: Visualize/ Video Archive and Hystoria/ In The Round In Your Face (both themselves compilations of previously released VHS).
What no other Def Leppard DVD includes that this one does is the new video for No Matter What and the band's audio commentary for each of the tracks released here. The video for Now is included in the recent British DVD release called The Best of, which also includes Long Long Way To Go, the second video from their X album which would have been a great addition to this DVD.

So, in the plus side, you get a choice of their best videos plus one brand new video (No Matter What) and another never released in the US (Now). Also, you get the band's commentary. Owning the aforementioned DVDs the band's commentary was the MAIN reason in getting this, and it's worth it. You'll hear both serious comments about the locations, the shoot, the directors, the schedule for each video. Also, some funny tidbits of the Leps acknowledging their own infamous anecdotes, and mostly, watching in amazement the long way of the videoclip as a medium in the 20 plus years they have taken full advantage of it. The show they are serious about having fun, even if it means making fun of themselves.

On the downside, there are some key videos missing, like the UK version of "Sugar" or the masterful epic version of "When Love and Hate Collide".

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! June 26, 2006
By Jeanine
Verified Purchase
This a great collection of videos! Definitely a must for all Def Leppard fans. I love the band's commentary. I laughed out loud several times and fell off my chair when the "Bringing on the Heartbreak" video segment was explained by the band, then clad in hooded, masked Hannibal Lechter style garb whilst rowing a crucified Joe Elliot on a boat in the middle of a freezing cold night on a lake. God bless the eighties! LOL Get this DVD, you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT COMMENTARY FROM THE BAND December 11, 2005
By DMW

This is a must have for all Def Leppard fans, even if you have their other DVD's...This DVD features the Leps talking about each video as the video is playing. It's hilarious to listen to their stories. And, the bonus No Matter What video from their rehearsals is great! LOVE IT! It's worth getting it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best Def Leppard DVD around to date. January 28, 2006
When I was watching this DVD, I was remembering watching the videos on MTV when they came out. Some didn't make it to American viewing. I'm glad that I bought this. This makes my collection, and any collection, complete. These guys just get better and better as they go along in their careers. Keep on rockin'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very cool...but give us something NEW! March 31, 2006
And by new, I mean LIVE!! When is Def Lep gonna come out with a live concert DVD? The Rock of Ages tour was the perfect time to do it, does anyone know if they are planning on releasing anything recent of a live concert? Thats the hardest thing to find for Lep, live footage!

This was a good DVD though, like others have said, great for the casual fan. But us die-hards need MORE!!

I Picked this up when it first came out, and was happy to have the heart of def leppard's videos on DVD. It contains their biggest hits and best videos. I know they couldn't fit every video on the disc, and I have their other two US DVDs of their older VHS tapes that cover some of the older material. This does contain "No Matter What" rehersal footage and video, which is cool and available only on this DVD. Saying this, I must say that I did buy the European Def Leppard Best Of DVD, which has 29 videos total on it, plus 3 hidden alternative videos. I paid more for that version, but I felt it was a better one stop shop for def leppard videos. But, I recommend this Rock Of Ages collection for most Leppard fans, it covers the biggest and best, and is more affordable/better value for a casual fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Def Leppard Rocks! \m/ January 17, 2006
This is the perfect gift for all DL fans, and 80's rockers.

All the old favorites from the 80's - plus new videos from the recent CD's and tours. Plus so many of the videos from the 90s that I'd never been able to see before! There's an option for the band's commentary as well. You can't beat the price either.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't Go Wrong1 April 6, 2006
If you are a Def Leppard fan then you cannot go wrong with this DVD. It is a great compilation of some of the best videos Def Leppard ever made! Even if you are not familiar with Def Leppard's songs, but you enjoy this type of music, then this is a wonderful video to start off a new collection!
