Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

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 rockers 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. 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

4.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Overlooked Album 15 May 2004
Format:Audio CD
1998 through 2000 were bad years for bands whose highpoints were the 80's. Def Leppard, along with other bands from their era tried to change their sound to fit in -- the only other alternative was to fade away. With "Euphoria" the band returned to the signature sound they left off with after "Hysteria". Had this album been released after "Hysteria" rather than "Adrenalize," I think it would have done much better. Since it was released during the "Dark Ages" of music: the boy-band-brainless-teen-pap era, the album never had a real chance for chart success. Now that the music listening audience at large seems to be coming back to its senses, I'm hoping people rediscover the good music that was being produced during these lean years. This is one album that deserves another listen.
This truly is a very good album of material. "Demolition Man," "Promises," "Paper Sun," "It's Only Love," "21st Century Girl" and "Day After Day" are really good Def Leppard songs while the rest are only so-so. There is definitely a high level of energy throughout "Euphoria" that the band seemed lacking on their previous effort, "Slang," and it shows in the music. There are a few exceptions on the CD (the cheesy "Back in Your Face" comes to mind), but those tracks are forgivable for all the good material contained within.
If you lost track of the band after "Hysteria," pick this album up, as it's a good place to see all the good music you've been missing!

5.0 out of 5 stars A great return to classic Def Leppard rock! 18 Jan 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After a slight "pause" in their career with the previosly released "Slang" album, the Leps are back in fine form with "Euphoria".
"Euphoria" is very reminicent of their heady "Pyromania" and "Hysteria" days and favourite tracks for me are "Back In Your Face" which they certainly are and the beautiful ballad "Goodbye".
To all fans of classic rock, especially the early Def Leppard sound, this is definitely worth a listen. One of the best albums they have released in years. There isn't one bad track on the album - ENJOY!

4.0 out of 5 stars Def Leppard "Back in Your Face"!!! 10 Nov 2002
By M. D. Rathbone VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
After getting the "Retroactive" album (a collection of older bits n pieces) and the "Vault" greatest hits album out of their system, Def Leppard released "Slang" and we finally got to hear what the new line up (now including Vivian Campbell) would sound like... and it was a bit of a disappointment as Def Leppard really did try something new and probably left most of their older fans scratching their heads. So what would the next album bring??? "Euphoria" was the answer... literally!
This is Def Leppard getting back to basics with the feel of energy and enthusiasm that was in the earlier albums. Tracks such as "Day after Day" (sounding a bit like "Fractured Love" or "Gods of War" or perhaps "High N Dry" in parts??) and "Disintegrate" demonstrate that, whilst "Kings of Oblivion" will grow on you instantly and make you want to play the whole album again!
Even fans of the middle Def Lep period of Hysteria/Adrenalize won't be disappointed with songs such as "Promises" and "All Night" very much fitting into that period with their feel... and with tongue in cheek humour returning again! "I'm back in your face" sings Joe... Never a truer word uttered!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE LEPPS ARE BACK! 2 Nov 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
You can say what you want about Def Leppard, but it won't stop them to make great rock music. There was many of us that was quite disapointed about "Slang" back in 1996, and we thougt their finest moment was past. But this album proves that they are BACK IN YOUR FACE again. At least they should, cause this is nothing but a masterpiece! Their opening track "Demolition man" is probably the best they ever done, and "Promises" (the first single) is something between "Animal" and "Photograph" - the result has to be great! "Back in your face", (already mentioned) does really prove their talent. I can't comment all the songs, but there is really no poor songs here. Of course you have to buy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ahhhh, nice to see you... 10 April 2001
Format:Audio CD
Let's be honest with each other here: Slang was not the best album the Leps ever did. To be brutally honest, apart from a couple of tracks, it sucked. The Def Leppard I enjoyed had huge guitars, big harmonies and more rock than a Yorkshire quarry, and this certainly wasn't it. Imagine my surprise when I stuck the CD of Euphoria in my player and hit that button, to be greeted with the awesome blast of the Leps back on true rocking form. My favourite track on the album just as to be Demolition Man, the thundering opener, and from there the album just doesn't slacken off. I saw Def Leppard when they toured the album and it was plain to see that they were proud of what they'd done. It's been a while boys, good to see you back. Come back soon, in a world dominated by plastic pop we need something that rocks as well as you...

5.0 out of 5 stars "EUPHORIA"...DEF LEPPARD AT THEIR BEST! 17 July 2000
Format:Audio CD
The Webster's Dictionary defines Euphoria as "A feeling of well being or elation." After listening to Def Leppard's "Euphoria" I would have to say that Def Leppard fans will be in this state with this album. "Euphoria" is solid on every track. The overall feel is like their "Hysteria" album, with catchy tunes and a definite upbeat style. They have also included two beautiful ballads on this one, "Goodbye" and "It's Only Love". This album earns itself an immediate "Classic Def Leppard" title. It is another shining example of a melodic hard rock band sticking with their original style and proving once and for all that these bands and this style of music are here to stay. LOTS of bands within this genre have recent releases that ROCK. If you like Def Leppard then DEFINITELY pick up "Euphoria", but also take a look at some of your other favorites. You may be surprised how many of them have recent releases. "Don't wait for a better day. Or you won't get there at all."-Kane Roberts-(Used with his kind permission)
