Review of Def Leppard: Hysteria

To complete our 5th year of The Sonic Collective we were all pretty pumped to have member Scott Gregory pick this 80s classic. I(Darren) will admit that it had been many years since I listened to this album in its entirety, and when I did it flooded back happy 80s memories. There is a lot to consume with this album, it’s 62 minutes long, it cost an outrageous-at-the-time $5 million to make, it was plagued with tragedies and delays, but yet it still became a masterpiece of its era. Does it stall stand up all these years later. Listen to our reviews and judge for yourself.

We invite you to hear our four differing opinions of this album and learn about this album. In this podcast you will learn the following and much more:

  • What the hell is a V-Card and what song Alain wanted to lose that card listening to that song?
  • What other legendary 80s band crushed pints and played football(soccer) with Def Leppard while they were both recording albums at the same time.
  • Why Canadian legend Shaina Twain deserved much better than the producer of this album. Get your shit together Mutt Lange!!

Listen to our thoughts and see if this is worth going back to and let us know what your experience was with this album.
