5.0 out of 5 stars Two lumps please... 5 Jun 2012
By Mr. Shy
Format:MP3 Download
Both this and the Rock Of Ages (2012) downloads are re-recordings of classic Def Leppard tracks available as digital downloads for the first time. These two tracks presumably chosen as they will link in with the new Rock Of Ages movie that is soon to be released.

How does this differ to the original version on Hysteria? Well, it doesn't start with the "Step inside, walk this way..." bit. Otherwise, it's pretty much identical, the guitars perhaps mixed differently and you can imagine that after years of playing the song live it didn't take so long to record this time as in Hysteria.

Still, 5 stars as it's a great party song, the orignal recording was great, and this sounds like it! Value for money wise, both this and Rock of Ages feature on the Greatest Hits compilation Vault which is a good place to start a journey into the music of Def Leppard and will be cheaper on a per song basis - but isn't available digitally.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better than the original 1 Jan 2013

Personally I prefer this newer version and I actually would like to see more bands update their old hits. Whitesnake's Here I Go Again USA radio remix is another example of an old track being bettered. It's a rarity that a band of Def Leppard's age still sounds as good now as they did 20 years ago, both in the studio and more impressively, live. Put simply - no band covers Def Leppard better than Def Leppard.

3.0 out of 5 stars 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it' 7 Jun 2012
Format:MP3 Download
I'm a huge Def Leppard fan. For years I have anticipated every release and have all the bands albums from various periods on heavy rotation. I don't understand why a band as big and popular as Def Leppard have to resort to rerecording old hits!
Both Pour Some Sugar On Me and Rock Of Ages have been given the rerecorded treatment and soundwise they are pretty much exactly the same as the originals. I understand the point of this exercise; to get their biggest hits back out into the public to coincide with the Rock Of Ages Movie. Whilst I have no problem with this, why can't the originals be used for this task?

One thing I always admired about Leppard was that apart from their own Hits albums, very rarely is their back catalogue thrown about into various 'Classic Rock' compilations and movie soundtracks, so to get tracks you had to buy the albums. The only other bands I can think of who work similar to this are Metallica and Led Zeppelin. So why now?

Rock music from the 80's has been having a resurgence over recent years with 'classic' acts like Motley Crue, Poison, Europe and others still working and in Motley & Europe's case, still producing good new albums. Newer bands like Work Of Art and Lionville have taken on the Leppard asthetic. In Def Leppards case, the new tracks they released on their Mirrorball album were the best things they have released since Euphoria in 1999. Why start rerecording older hits now? If the digital domain is where the sales are now, work out the legalities and get the original albums available.

I'd like to stress that I have been a fan of Def Leppard for almost 25 years.
