Product Description

Amazon.com

Tongue firmly in cheek, Def Leppard vocalist Joe Elliott once referred to his band's wildly successful anthemic hard rock as "deep and meaningless." Indeed, while peers of the Sheffield punters were scrambling to embrace successive waves of punk, new wave, alternative, and post-whatever, the Leps stayed true to their arena-rock roots and became one of the most successful, if least hyped, bands of the 1980s and early '90s. Only their 1996 album Slang bowed to market trends; its disappointing showing only spurred a return to familiar form on Euphoria. The band also brought producer and de facto sixth band member Robert "Mutt" Lange back into the fold for a trio of tracks, including "Promises," a seamless wall of hooks that outshines even the band's Pyromania and Hysteria prime. And if the Lep-Lange lineup bats only .333 (faltering on the goofy, Prince-ly funk of "All Night" and the bubble-gum pop of "It's Only Love") this inning, they redeem themselves with balladry that beats post-Diane Warren Aerosmith at their own game ("Goodbye") and enough glossy energy ("Demolition Man," "Back in Your Face," "Day After Day," "King of Oblivion") to reclaim their strange niche on the pop plateau midway between AC/DC and Abba. Though they've largely been left out of the critical debate, Def Leppard long ago established their credentials as power-pop monsters with the public. All that's left for the pundits to decide is: Def Leppard--band out of time or band for the ages? --Jerry McCulley

Customer Reviews

Still, a very good song.

DEF LEPPARD is easily one of the greatest rock bands of all time and their 1999 album Euphoria proves it.

LOL I highly recommend that any Lep fan get this CD to add to their collection.

Def Leppard claims that Euphoria is a return to the Pyromania/Hysteria sound and style. That isn't quite what I hear when I listen to Euphoria but this is a good album, anyway.
The rockers fare better on this album moreso than do the ballads. The fast-paced "Demolition Man", the epic "Paper Sun" and the '70s glam rock-influenced "21st Century Sha La La La Girl" are the highlights on this excellent release. Other noteworthy songs include the dark "Day After Day", the radio-friendly rocker "Promises", the catchy "Guilty" and the Satriani-like instrumental "Disintegrate". Unfortunately, as I stated earlier, the ballads keep this album from being a five star cd. But that's okay, Def Leppard is back.
Is Euphoria Pyromania plus Hysteria? No. I find that while Euphoria does have many similarities to Hysteria, the similarities to Adrenalize, Retro Active and even Slang are stronger than the Pyromania similarities. If you took the best moments off of Retro Active, Slang and Adrenalize, mixed it with the powerful pop-metal of Hysteria, you'd end up with Euphoria. So, in a way, Euphoria is the best of Def Leppard.
Euphoria is Adrenalize on steroids, it's Hysteria injected with the best of Slang. It's the best of post-Pyromania Def Leppard.

I've been a huge fan of Def Leppard's for a long time. I have every one of their albums and every single one of them is great. With this new release,Euphoria, Def Leppard goes back to basics and brings out some of their best work. Mutt Lange is also back with Def Lep and worked on three songs with them, Promises, All Night, and It's Only Love. The album starts out with Demolition Man, a fasted pace song that basically says that they are here and they won't take sh** from nobody. Euphoria also has the ballads, Goodbye and To Be Alive. Def Leppard also has an instumental on the album, Disintegrate. This whole album is great and anyone who says Def Leppard died with the 80's, tell them to listen to this album. Move over Limp Bizkit, Korn, and Kid Rock, Def Leppard is here to bring true Rock N' Roll back to the 90's.

First of all, "Euphoria" is NOT "Hysteria" or "Pyromania". It is "Euphoria", it is a separate entity. I'm glad the cats did not produce another "Hysteria" or another one of their albums. My first listen of the CD left me with an awkward feeling and only liking two songs. However, the more I listened to it, the more I began to appreciate each song for its individuality. I enjoyed being able to recognize signature sounds established from the other albums. It is a great change to hear an eclectic collection of rock genres contained in one album by the same artist, from the funky "All Night" to deep and dark, "Paper Sun". I believe that Def Leppard has proven that they are flexible and aren't afraid to try new paths. I continue to be blown away by the sheer genious of these true musicians! Joe Elliott continues to maintain such an incredible vocal range and as one reviewer said, "Phil Collen is God". I too, must agree. While "Disintegrate" played, I thought I was listening to Joe Satriani! I have always been impressed with Collen's musicianship and think that he is underrated as a guitarist, he deserves more recognition for his incredible skills and dedication to music. We should praise "Euphoria" for being "Euphoria" and not any other Leppard creation. I have a wonderful husband, but I don't want two of him when one is plenty! Why would we want another Hysteria? I think Def Leppard did a wonderful job of giving us "High N' Dry", "Pyromania", "Hysteria", "Adrenalize", and "Slang" in one album. Many many thanks and a huge BRAVO to Def Leppard. No disappointments from this fan!

First of all, the album "Slang" was never a disappointment. This album needed some "air time" on the radio, which It never did! Never heard one song on tha radio. Songs such as "Breath a sigh", "All I want is everything" would of been smash hits. Not only those two, but the rest of the other tracks would been also. Big Def Lep fans would understand im trying to say, and the peeps that havnt got a taste of Def Lep, watch out.....! Euphoria is an album that kicks these artist in the head....., pop, rock, hip-hop, and heavy metal. Its that good. The tracks are uplifting, juices you up to start the day and go till night. Buy it, it wont disappoint you. "I GUARANTEE IT"

Def Leppard, those English Lads (with the exception of Vivian Campbell -- sorry, Vivian), whom we've known and loved since their inception in the early 80s, are back with a new album. Joe Elliott, Phil Collen, Vivian Campbell, Rick "Sav" Savage, and Rick Allen are back in your CD players and escaping through your stereo speakers. Yeah, that's right -- you've heard me correctly. So, like, what year is it anyway? 1999, right? Def Leppard's last release was Slang, the black sheep of the Def Leppard catalog. That was in 1996. So, if I know my math, that's three years, instead of four or five, right? Just kidding, chaps . . .

So, Slang was the last effort by the Lep Lads. Now, I know . . . I have eyes and ears and Internet access . . . so I KNOW that Slang went over about as well as watching grass grow on a sunny afternoon would. That's a shame, I'll tell you, because these guys can't win, eh? Slang was too different, too left-turn, for the typical stubborn Lep fan. Well, not this fan. She thought Slang was one of their best efforts (that's another review altogether), and it's still one of her favorites. So crucify me. There, I said it publicly (and I'll say it again). I never did run with the crowd . . .

Well, I can tell you folks who haven't heard this latest release, Euphoria, that it sounds NOTHING like Slang. I would say that this piece of work is a mix of Pyromania and Hysteria. I guess, you could say it is like Adrenalize, too, since I think that disc sounds like Hysteria II. Nothing wrong with that at all . . .

So, the boyz are returning to their roots, sort to speak. So, what do we have here for our listening pleasure? The disc starts off with an awesome, fast-paced, highly infectious rocker called Demolition Man.
