Don't be put off by the title, which sounds like it belongs on a Scissor Sisters album, Def Leppard are back with their first album of original material in six years and their best album since Slang!

The opening track, Go, drops on you like a ton of gold bullion, giving the heaviest opener since Desert Song on Retro-Active. The pounding rhythm is driven by a tribal, African beat from the peerless Rick Allen (playing what sounds like a standard kit on the whole album). The oriental-tinged guitars add a distinct and unique melody, and the political overtones in the lyrics show a band that have (thankfully) abandoned the generic songwriting that plagued `X'.

Nine Lives, the first single, is the most radio-friendly on the disc and though some may think that collaborating with country star Tim McGraw is an odd decision, despite the bluesy licks and country twang, this is pure Leppard at their most crowd-pleasing.

C'Mon C'mon is an infectious chant that will no-doubt be echoed in concert venues all across the world before the year is out. It has distinct feel of seventies glam, in particular Gary Glitter (are we allowed to mention that name?) with shades of T. Rex and The Sweet thrown into the mix.

Love is probably my favourite track at the moment. It starts out with a Zepplin-esque guitar part, adds in some Beatle-y harmonies, before kicking it up a notch with the electrics. The lyrics and harmonies are haunting - this is no run-of-the-mill ballad, but a mini-epic of loss that goes from a simple acoustic start to an operatic climax. A classic in years to come.

The lively and energetic Tomorrow shows the Lepps at their most fun-loving. It's a song that you can't help but blow the dust off your air guitar and join in.

Purchased this album and as usuall I buy everything they've done since i got into them around the hysteria time, got the deluxe edition expecting all the goodies, but when i got home, opened it wheres song no 12 (Love -acoustic). There is no tracklisting on back of cover on deluxe edition, now i will have to wait till itunes have it for download which last time i checked they hadn't. Its on the cheap version.

The first few songs here lead you to think this could be close to being another Hysteria. "Go" is a storming opening track and "Nine Lives" and the superbly faultless "C'Mon,C'Mon" keep the pace up before a great ballad "Love" slows it down.
After that it largely gets by but never gets back to the level of the opening tracks, Hallucinate and Bad Actress as well as the closing track Gotta Let It Go stood out amongst the remaining tracks for me. There are no really bad tracks though.
As for the DVD there is an interesting documentary with Phil Collen and Vivian Campbell talking about the band and the making of the album going through the writing of the individual tracks and illuminating some of the tracks that I had dismissed earlier, this was important and gave a fresh perspective on them, well done lads their commentary will certainly help on the next few plays.
They even say how important the lyrics on certain songs were to them, which I wholeheartedly agree with. I bought this "Deluxe Edition" as I wanted the ultimate Def Leppard package and although it looks good I have one main grumble, there are no printed lyrics, and I do not count the 6 post-it style notes as such. C'Mon,C'Mon there was room for 2 pages of thank you's and 5 pages taken up by small photos of the band that would have fitted onto one page. Surely some bright spark must have suggested that idea at some stage.
All in all a pretty decent package but compared to Hysteria and Pyromania it does not reach those 5 star heights. Notwithstanding that I cannot wait to see them on tour in June, welcome back Leppard.

don't get me wrong i love the leps but listening to this record it seemed stripped right down and quickmade! but i don't understand why it took so long since X to surface if it was to be this type of quick record? when i listen to SLANG i can hear the depth and time gone into it and X is as tho each song has been given all due attention to be perfect in deliverence. i expected more this time but this record reminds me of EUPHORIA some good moments but no contintuence in the music, like starts and stops and starts and stop again.it has good moments but not as many as X and phil you don't need to keep your guitar notes going to a scream all the time just let the note flow and step of the sustain dude i can feel you in my teeth ha ha. all in all its still a very good def leppard record and worth having i give it 4 out of 5.
