Customer Reviews

Def Leppard did in 1996 with 'Slang' and it's I think one of their best albums.
M. L. Adams
This one is different from their usual sound but it is really cool nonetheless...good to add to your collection especially if you have their other albums.
Starbugary
The whole album just shows this band can bring their music to such a great level...lyrically and musically.

Slang, in my humble but accurate opinion, is Def Leppard's masterpiece. It's the album that made me a true fan. Music needs substance for me to appreciate it, and it's testament to Leppard's strong songwriting skills that I was a fan before Slang, because up until then, substance seemed to be something they were deliberately avoiding. Joe called the music "Deep and meaningless".

This album has been called an attempt at "modern music", and it may have been, but that's only half of it. Modern elements, like industrial, R&B, rap, and Indian styles were blended, but the upshot of incorporating so many styles gave the album a quality the band hadn't captured before: variety. Not one of these songs sounds alike, and if it wasn't that this was Leppard's only CD daring enough to try variety, you'd guess they were all from different albums.

Before Slang, you could count the number of Leppard songs actually about something on two fingers (as far as I know, "From the Inside" and "White Lightning", with "Gods of War" coming close). Whether these songs on Slang were genuinely autobiographical, whether they were aimed at encompassing a theme or inadvertently tapped into insights the band had been storing subconsciously, they resonate on so many levels. When the lyrics are really good we get songs like "Truth?

I am a huge fan of Def Leppard. In contrast to many on here, I can say that I absolutely love every song they've ever recorded, with maybe one or two exceptions (such as "All Night.")

"Slang" truly is, from start to finish, a masterpiece. Although it differs from all other Def Leppard albums, I still think it to be the very best of all.

I was never a fan of grunge or alternative music when it first appeared. I can say that Leppard actually, by "leppardizing" this kind of music on songs like Deliver Me and Gift of Flesh, made me appreciate the genre as a whole, to some extent. But even moreso, made me simply love this album.

I probably have listened to this album a couple thousand times since I bought it back in 1996. I still am impressed as I listen to it now.

Blood Runs Cold is PHENOMENAL, just so emotional and spiritual. Where Does Love Go When It Dies= even better, if that's possible. Pearl of Euphoria= SO INTENSE. AWESOME.

All I Want Is Everything= outstanding song!!!!

Deliver Me= one of the best tracks. Gift of Flesh= rocks, and the best lyrics Collen has written.

Turn to Dust= I LOVE the eastern influences and the lyrics. Great! Truth = nice, different opener, very NIN-ish.

Slang=fun pop tune, but different.

Work It Out= my least favorite on the album, but still a great, great song. I really love the song, and am just appreciating now the great breakdown section in the middle.

FINALLY, BREATHE A SIGH! YOU GUYS ALL TEND TO WANT TO DISS THIS SONG, AND SAY IT DOESN'T FIT IN ON THE ALBUM. I SAY, I DISAGREE! THIS BALLAD IS BEAUTIFUL. THE HARMONIES ARE WONDERFUL.

Def Leppard took the old phrase and lived by it with this CD. In response to the dark grunge music that was flooding the airwaves and MTV at the time, Def Leppard showed they could easily run with the dark masses from Seattle. Slang is complete departure from Leppard's previous work and shows just how versatile and talented these guys really are. You want grunge, they can give it to you, and it's really good too. Hey guys, can you do some country? (just kidding) Slang is dark, moody, and some what disturbing. The fact this album is better overall musically then many of the grunge bands shows that grunge is a fad, and will eventually die out, leaving the really talented bands in place progressively developing their own music. This CD may have been a marketing mistake for the band, but it still has plenty of merit, and anyone who truly likes them will see past the change of pace and see what is really great about Slang.

Before you scream, I'll admit that this is not the best example of the sound that made Def Leppard a hard rock heavyweight in the 80's. For that, you need to look elsewhere (namely "Pyromania" and "Hysteria"). However, if you ignore for one moment your preconceived notions of this band and give this record a simple listen as if it were an anonymous piece of music, you might be likely to agree that this is one of the greatest, most adventurous album experiences you'll ever hear. This is by far the most mature, subtly complex music that Def Leppard ever recorded, and as a result, my favorite not only of their albums, but a top ten contender on my all time list. Everything is so different on "Slang," you'd think that this band had just come out of the gate. The guitar work on songs like "Turn to Dust" and "Pearl of Euphoria" is inspiring because of its simplicity. The latter song, the album's best track and coda, might as well have belonged to Led Zeppelin. The ballads, particularly "All I Want Is Everything" and "Where Does Love Go When It Dies," are for once sincere and moving, devoid of the usual mushiness that has become a trademark. "Blood Runs Cold," supposedly written about their late guitarist Steve Clark, is poignant in the same way that "Deliver Me" is haunting. Even the title track, the closest thing to traditional Leppard fare, is fresher and more creatively fun than most of their previous songs of the same blend. It is a shame that this material's commercial failure has since forced the band to return to its safer pop sensibilities, instead of allowing them the opportunity to delve into this territory even further, and in essence, grow as musicians and songwriters.Read more ›
