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.

I'm glad this song is available for digital dl somewhere, so I don't keep draining my data limit watching the video. Not a whole lot of difference, maybe a little less screaming by the lead singer. Can't have everything I guess.

The later versions are not quite as well done as the originals, but that seems to be the case with anything Def Leppard has produced themselves. I am a huge Def Leppard fan and collector, but the releases to get around their copyright issues have not held up.

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.

Though this rerecording could never capture the sound and spirit of the original recording, I find it entertaining and cool
that in this rerecording you're able to hear how Joe Elliott's current voice sounds in a mastered recording. He's good for his age!
I read that they did these rerecordings because the record company is keeping the rights to all their songs, so they made some forgeries of their own songs. I hope they can settle this dispute!

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.

Well, at first when I heard Def Leppard was re-recording 2 tracks to put online I kind of cringed with hesitance. (long story on why. Google it, it's quite interesting) There's some aspects of the new one that I like better and some of the old version. However, if they played it on the radio, you wouldn't tell the difference at first sound. I do recommend buying it if you're a Leppard fan. It has clarity unlike the original and the sound is much more superior.

Def Leppard has been one of my favorite bands when I was growing and they still are. Having the original embedded to my soul, I could tell right away what differences were made. However it still amazes me how much they still sound like back in those days. Most people say that your voice changes through time. Joe Elliot has proven that he still hasn't lost the touch. Long Live Def Leppard!
