Def Leppard has been one of my favorite bands when I was growing and they still are.

I'm a HUGE Def Leppard fan. I consider them to be the greatest band of all time. That said, I was hoping they would do something with Sugar, rather than simply record the exact same thing over again. Maybe add some guitar fills here and there, or something. But sadly, none of that here. Sounds almost identical to the original version. I still bought it tho, and not unhappy about it. Just want everyone to know it's basically the same thing and not to expect any upgrades. In a nutshell, it's a 5 star song, with a 3 star re-recording.

EDIT: After doing some research, it would appear that Def Leppard INTENTIONALLY recorded this as close to the original as possible. You see, Def Leppard is currently battling with their old record label over releasing their back catalog on services such as Amazon and iTunes. That's why you can't download their old albums anywhere. The old record company is trying to give them VERY LITTLE money and they've been arguing for years about it. They share the rights to the music, so the only way Def Leppard can release their popular songs for download off of one of these services is to COMPLETELY RERECORD the music from scratch. And that is what Def Leppard has threatened to do in the past, and apparently, this is coming to fruition. That said, I guess I will look forward to other re-recorded versions of their most popular tunes. Adjusting the score to 4 stars.

There are certain things that I like about the new 2012 version better than the Hysteria version, and others that I'm not quite so fond of. The technical aspects of the recording are certainly better than the previous versions... the cymbals in particular are represented more clearly and accurately, and the lyrics are much easier to understand. But then there are some differences that aren't quite as pleasing.

Overall, even though it's the same artists and it is recorded at the same tempo it lacks some of the energy of the original. It almost sounds like after 8000 performances of the song they've grown a little tired of doing it. While technically they're playing and singing well, it doesn't have the same emotion and energy behind it. Some of that comes from the way it is mixed... it has a lot less reverb, echo, and delays this time around... but the performance itself is lacking something too. The technical aspects may be better, but there is nonetheless still something missing.

I won't make too big of a deal of that, though... I'm fully behind their decision to go around Universal to get their music into the digital stores. Record companies treat their artists notoriously horribly, and Def Leppard has enough clout to be able to go out on their own and be successful with it. I'm impressed that they were smart enough when they signed with Universal to keep the rights to their music. Few are able to get away with that.

I certainly will be buying anything that Def Leppard or any of my other favorite artists release this way. Hopefully others will too, if not for no other reason but to support doing to the record labels what they've done to their artists for far too long.

I love this song however I purchased it but, it still isn't showing up that I did. I also bought Beautiful Pain which isn't showing up either. I would rate 5 stars if I could play the music I bought.

Too bad that this is the only legal way to get a digital version of this song.
The vocals are weaker and will leave you wanting the original version.

It sounds A LOT like the original recording. There are some slight differences, but if you get into the song, like you should do with a great rock song, those things become trivial. After Def Leopard Pours the Sugar all over you, You'll be happy you bought this version for less money.
