It is so easy to criticise Def Leppard. OK..there are few cheesier rock singers than Joe Elliott and Rick Savage really should find a haircut that sits well in the 21st century. But scratch beneath the surface and they are one extremelely talented and credible outfit. There are few better lead rock guitarists than Phil Collen and Viv Campbell and put them together and you have a very sophisticated but melodic guitar sound. When i heared however that they were recording an album of cover versions, I feared the worst. But this is no lazy 'can't be bothered to write our own music' job. It becomes very obvious that these boys really do truly love the songs they are covering. That should be applauded if anything. There is a real arrogant attitude towards cover versions in this country but what's wrong with Joe Elliot wanting to champion his boyhood heroes Mott the Hoople ? Take or leave covers of well known songs like Waterloo Sunset and Hanging on the Telephone, the real delight of this album is hearing songs that have fallen by rock's wasteland. David Essex's Rock On sounds fantastic here, as does No Matter What. Own up, how many of us have heared Badfinger's original ? Well here it is and it sounds bloody good. It's time Britain embraced Def Leppard a bit more.

Ever since the mega-success of their 80s albums, Hysteria and Pyromania, Def Leppared have had considerable laurels to rest upon. Some might say a covers album was them doing exactly that.

But actually it's good to hear them cut loose on some of their favourite tracks - the rock band that only occasionally surfaced on X (Four Letter Word, mainly) is here a lot more often.

And their song selection is pretty solid. I don't know all the originals, but where I do these come across as being mostly pretty faithful but better recorded versions (stand up Waterloo Sunset, Hanging On The Telephone, etc).

The album is worth the price of entry for two tracks - Mott's Golden Age Of Rock and Roll and T-Rex's 20th Century boy. These sprint out of the starter's blocks and display far more energy than the originals ever did.

Biggest dissappointment of the album for me was HellRaiser - the Sweet song is fantastic but the Leppard cover version feels like it's missing something (I think it's in the verse guitar parts) and Justin Hawkins (of squeaking for The Darkness fame) performs pretty woefully.

But overall it is a good listen, you can easily have it on and not feel the urge to skip any tracks, which has to be a good thing.

I love this album. I grew up during the 70s listening to the bands who influenced Def Leppard and in my opinion the songs have been covered brilliantly. This is a fun album which transports those who heard the tunes the first time around right back to the 70s and shows those who weren't around then, just what they missed! My only complaint is that the bonus tracks available on the American versions of the album aren't on this one. Whether a Lep fan or not this is one of the best cover albums I've heard and it will be played until the CD wears out!

I cannot understand all the bad reviews this album has been receiving from people and all the music magazines. Def Leppard wanted to do a covers albums of songs that they loved and had inspired them. I am old enough to know these songs the first time they were issued by the original artists and I think the album is very good. While I agree that the original versions are better they were not trying to better these but just to do a album of songs they love. Listen to this and if you like the songs track down the original ones and artists.

As a fan since the heady days of Hysteria I was going to buy this in order to keep up my collection of Leppard albums, but I wasn't in any great hurry. My loss. As it turns out this is my favourite album of the year so far, ahead of the likes of Iron Maiden and Cheap Trick. It helps that there isn't a duff song choice here, with the David Bowie and Mott covers being particularly good, despite none of the songs being 'obvious' choices. The boys love of the source material comes across and as my wife put it 'it just sounds like Def Leppard' doing some great songs.

It's especially good in the car as it is very easy to listen to without being too heavy.

Fans and non-fans alike should give this one a go, whether you remember the originals or not. There are some real gems on here.

I didn't even know this album was coming out,it just caught my eye purely by chance, and when I saw the tracklisting I just had to buy it.

This albums could have been made specifically for me, as most of these tracks have been real favourites for me over the years.

I have always quite liked Def Leppard, having most of their albums, but have never been one to rush out and buy one of them straight away without hearing anything off it, which I did with this one!

my absolute favourite track on here is Mott the Hoople's "The Golden Age Of Rock and Roll", closely followed by Badfinger's "No Matter What", tracks you don't hear a great deal of...in fact don't hear half enough MOtt the Hoople stuff these days!!

This is one of the better covers albums I have heard, normally I think bands that attempt them don't seem to put enough energy into them, resulting in bland immitations of the originals (anyone heard ozzy's latest album of covers? ...I rest my case)...but Def Leppard seem to have put a bit of energy and seemingly enthusiasm into these covers.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this one...not quite sure about the cover of David Essex's "Rock On"...never been on of my favourite Essex songs.

Great CD to play loud in the car!!!!!!!
