5.0 out of 5 stars Leppard at their Best 22 Mar 2007
Format:Audio CD
This Album was the one before the BIG TIME!. I can remember when I was 14 and my mate showed me this Album that he'd just bought and saying they were from sheffield and when we played it were blown away and so proud!.

It shows the true talent of the lads espeacilly when you consider how old they were. I think this is best Leppard Album as it it's songs are as good as the Hysteria /Pyromania era but more raw with more balls and Punch which Leppard slowly moved away from when the became the stadium band a few years later. Gems on this Album are Mirror-Mirror, Hit and Run and Bringing on the Heartbreak.

This is a great starting point for any potential Leppard Fan and also anyone who has only sampled the Hysteria + years. They should buy this and see why this band made it and stayed there.

Still A great Band Live But can't help feeling they've sold out in recent years.. But then again don't they all..and we're still so Proud!.

Superb Album.

Yes, you read that right. *This* is Def Leppard at their very best. It ranks alongside Diamond Head's "white" album, in my humble opinion! I guess I'm showing my age, but I bought this on vinyl originally - and wore it out. I bought it on CD when it came out. And I'm still playing it. That's not to say Pyromania (which is almost as good) and the lesser Hysteria are rubbish, they are brilliant - in their own way - they just got increasingly too polished for my tastes.

Buy this, you won't be disappointed! Now, if they'd only bring out a deluxe edition......

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff !! 24 Oct 2005
By JT
Format:Audio CD
This album pre dates the Phil Collen era of Leppard. But don`t let that put you off. This is Leppard at there most rocky. It`s a great album full of good songs that you`ll be singing for weeks after. It was infact this album that broke Leppard in the States as the band played support slots to more established names, Stand out tracks..... The opener "Let it go" has one of the best riffs you`ll ever hear " Hit & Run " "Switch 625" " on through the night" " Bringing on the heart break" to be honest there isn`t a bad track on the album trust me go buy it now you won`t be disapointed !

4.0 out of 5 stars Just short of epic 30 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD
This is pure 80's hard rock right here for you. It doesn't get anymore authentic than this.

If you love Hard Rock / Classic Rock, you must own High 'N' Dry.

3.0 out of 5 stars Deft seconds 8 July 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Not an out and out triumph but a very pleasing album that feels comfortable rather than loud and in your face. Although I suppose for the early 80s this was rather edgy (ish) music. DL have gradually grown as a band and their main strengths lie in good, honest rock. Their weaknesses are forays into party-rock and whimsical melancholy. That said, High & Dry consists mainly of the good stuff!

'Let it Go' has an infectious riff that permeates the song. It's not a true classic but it does a rather good job of creeping into your head. 'Another Hit & Run' is rather plodding and pedestrian but has a certain charm that raises it above simply 'ok'. It's also too long as there are no real memorable hooks. It's akin to a lot of AC/DC tracks without being half as good. The title track is made of better stuff while ironically being a party tune. It's not cringeworthy like some of their later efforts and is genuinely quite fun. It's with 'Bringing on the Heartbreak' where the album finds its feet. It is a ballad but it is a hard rockin' one that is slightly cheesy without being mawkish. A quality example of early DL and a blueprint for later classics such as 'Love Bites'. 'Switch 625' is an instrumental and is a very typical, driving, semi-epic track. It chugs along with assorted solos and rhythms and is a rather nice interlude.

'You Got Me Runnin' is another winner. Great chorus and a rockin tune. Very singalongy. And 'Lady Strange' has a great swagger to it. It's just very good rock music. 'On Through the Night' is slightly reminiscent of early Iron Maiden. The rapid-fire riff and old-skool feel adds to its charm. It's not a great track but it does feel dark and perfect for an 'on-the-road' song. 'Mirror Mirror' keeps up the good work with a more serious tone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Leppard Album 26 Oct 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is more classic Def Leppard. This their second album had to be good to follow their debut album On Through The Night, and it was. 12 tracks of great Leppard music. The track Bringin' On The Heartbreak appears twice on this album the second time the track is done as a remix. Every song on this album is good. The ones I enjoyed the most were. Let It Go, High N' Dry, Lady Strange, On Through The Night, and Me And My Wine. But the others are also very good. The strange thing about this album is that the track "On Through The Night" doesn't appear on their debut album also called On Through The Night. But a great CD all the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!!! 24 Jan 2014
By bigal4e

Had this on vinyl years ago. Bought the cd as it was cheaper and less time consuming than transferring from record to disc. Brought back loads of memories. Every song is fantastic, nothing was put in just as a filler. Def lep at their best.

Always believed DL under rated, love the bounce of their guitar work and melodies on more gentle numbers. Artists' early work often excellent, this no exception

Got me running. This is my favorite Def Leppard album. More rock and roll than pop. I have most of their albums, but this is the bees knees. :)

A corker of an album, love Pyromania, like Hysteria, this falls somewhere in between Pyromania and Hysteria.
1) Pyromania
2) High N Dry
