Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

To have resisted Def Leppard's radio power in their heyday, you'd have to have been a critic--and even some of us could hardly argue with the likes of "Photograph," "Animal," and "Bringin' on the Heartbreak." Vault covers a decade and a half of hits by the one-time wonder boys of the new wave of British metal, but perhaps inevitably concentrates on singles from the multiplatinum Pyromania and Hysteria. It offers little meaning beyond fun fun fun, but there are hooks here that Noel Gallagher would punch a paparazzo for. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars A jam-packed hits collection plus a bonus disc! 10 Nov 2002
By M. D. Rathbone VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
A good intro to a very under-rated band who never quite got the chart success they deserved in the UK despite being massive in the US.
This represents the output from their three main albums ("Pyromania", "Hysteria" and "Adrenalize") and contains a variety of rock classics, heavy rock, soft rock and rock ballads.
For the collector and enthusiast, this "Limited Edition" version also contains a 2nd CD of 9 live tracks recorded at the Don Valley, Sheffield in 1993. All 9 tracks (with the exception of "Foolin") appear in their original format on the 1st CD so you also get a chance to hear how they sounded live!

5.0 out of 5 stars Def Leppard-15 years of the best ,1980 to 1995 7 Dec 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After the Retro Active release in 1993 with its basic attempt to showcase new member Vivian Campbell and to clear the decks of old material still lying around with some potential such as the slow, melodic ballad "two steps behind", the construction of the album "Slang" was weighing down the group's shoulders.So they thought that if they really wanted to start afresh,they should finally compile all the greatest tracks of the past six albums,then release "Slang" to begin a new era of the lep."Vault" was finally released in October of 1995 and the experimental album "Slang" was released in the spring of 1996.
"Vault" starts of with a prodigious burst of energy (supplied by the saccharin of course!!)with the anthemic and dynamic "Pour some sugar on me" from the masterclass album "Hysteria" which supplies most of the material in "Vault" to be frank! Then it continues on to the catchy and rythmic rock hit "Photograph" which is defined in a raw and powerful way, mostly thanks to one of the greatest producers ever Robert John "Mutt" Lange who stands out as the unofficial sixth member of Def Leppard. Such hits as "Animal","Rocket","Hysteria" will leave you musically aching and "When love and hate collide" is ,in my opinion, one of the best rock ballads ever. The understated guitar solo and the lyrics are sublime and will surely stand the test of time!
Even though this album is the pure article, the album is maybe just short of a classic song like "Foolin'" to keep complete interest but I'm sure people really don't mind and would rather listen to "Heaven is" instead!! The album is all about chart suceess and maybe a "Best Of" would have fitted the bill to compile the definitive material of Def Leppard.
This album still is a classic though and I am sure people will be hooked on this for the rest of their lives when ever they are in need of some SHEFFIELD STEEL!

5.0 out of 5 stars Vault: Def Leppard - You wanna get rocked?... 16 April 2012
By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
A bit of a guilty pleasure this one. It's fashionable these days to deride that `80s/'90s cheesy soft stadium rock, and rightly so. The attitude, the attempts at humour, the style were all atrocious. But, it was wildly popular in its day, and I must confess that every now and then I slip this one on and remind myself of being a teenager back then. The music, though I know I should be hating it, has a strange magnetic power, fuelled by pure nostalgia, that just keeps me listening.

With snarly/shouty vocals, lush sounding musical backing and laden with classic hooks, the music of Def Leppard was archetypal of the British New Metal Wave. This album anthologises their output from 1980 to 1995, and concentrates on their 3 big albums, Hysteria, Andrenalize and Pyromania. It shows that range of talents of the band, from unsubtle double entendre, to overdone power ballad, to balls out rock. It's corny, it's cheesy, it's immature, it's pretty damned good.

So even though the more mature me should hate it, I just have to award this collection 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars moments in time 1 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Vault album is always a joy to listen to if you're not a hardcore Def Leppard fan. I always felt though that they had so much more to offer with their hits album. Their live performances are just so vibrant and with so much energy that it should have been in the hits album. I'm guessing another hits album is being considered and that this time round a double CD will be generated. Still the Vault album is one of the best albums to have in your CD collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars All the greats 27 Aug 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This excellent CD is packed with all the greats from Def Leppard's '80-'95 career. It's got loads of excellent rockers, and some great rock-ballads. This CD is a must for anyone who likes classic rock. Best songs: 'Action', 'Love Bites' and 'Rock of Ages'

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album in the world . . . .EVER !! 18 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
An excellent album, which charts the success of one of Britain's most underated rock bands. Every single track is in itself a masterpiece, yet the sum total provides the listener with a brilliant collection of both ballards and rock anthems which are second to none. Worth every single penny, you will listen to it again and again.

3.0 out of 5 stars You gotta be DEF to not like LEPPARD! 14 Mar 2004
Format:Audio CD
Not being the world's biggest Leppard fan, I picked this up at a car boot sale for 1, just to see what all the fuss was about. That was about a year ago. However, now that I've got into them, this album just doesn't do it for me. As someone else has said, you'd be better off with "Hysteria" and "Pyromania", both of which I now have on vinyl. I tend to skip most of the tracks on this CD now that I've burned my 2 vinyls onto CD. But having said that, it did get me into Leppard, and it's an OK starting point for anyone who wants to do the same. Cool tracks include "Pour Some Sugar...", "Love Bites", "Rock of Ages" and "Bringin' On...". The liner notes are a good read, and there's a little bit about each track from members of the band.
Leppard kick ass, and from the picture in the middle of the booklet, you'll see that a good few people would agree! This is an OK compilation, but "Hysteria" and "Pyromania" will keep you up all night with the air guitar on full!

A good compilation for the hits, but it doesn't get at the music between those hits, where Def Leppard was just a killer rock n' roll band. Read more
