5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite Def Lep, December 16, 2001
This review is from: High 'n' Dry (Audio CD)
This 'raw' CD of the Lep is their finest - before being glossed into a commercial heavy metal machine. Mind you, I love Pyromainia and Hysteria, but that is about it... This CD captures all of their early raw energy; combined with 'On through the Night', this is Lep's finest moment - and the Vault CD totally dismissed most of this and their debut!
This album was a permanent fixture in my first car (as a tape, of course), and I never tired of the sheer energy that was on 'High and Dry' - in fact, I only wished that other bands would follow suit! 'Let it Go' and 'Another Hit and Run' still make me long for that kind of stuff today. (...) This CD was good old 'feeling good' rock and roll with a heavy induction of pep and guitars by the Lep.
Lep fans - this is a MUST - for all others, you must check this out keeping in mind that this is good old 70's hard rock, not the Lep stuff that followed...

Def Leppard is NOT a heavy metal band!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are hard rock, never ever been a metal band by any means. Go ask the guys. I do see down later in your review you it is hard rock.

The Bas says:
Yeah, you're right. They are more 'hard rock' than 'heavy metal', however I think the term 'heavy metal' was used a lot for hard rock bands like Def Leppard back then. I kind of put them in the same 'class' as Priest, Maiden & Scorpions who were tagged as 'heavy metal'. I stand corrected.

J.B. says:
They used to refer to themselves as "a working class metal band" in the 70's and early 80's. They also have appeared in Metal magazines for decades. There's been definition drift over time, but make no mistake: they were a metal band, long before they started doing "the Backstreet Boys with guitars" thing.
