3.0 out of 5 stars This is no classic, but a solid effort, 8 May 2008
This review is from: Songs From The Sparkle Lounge (Audio CD)
I have to say that I partially agree with Simon Long on this. I stress only partially though!

When I first listened to the album I was very underwhelmed, especially considering all the positive reviews that I had read. The album doesn't compare to Hysteria or Pyromania in anyway, but I think this is where the problem comes in. I can't imagine that any Def Leppard album can ever live up to those masterpieces. I mean does anyone think that this is really going to happen?

However I have stuck with "Songs from the Sparkle Lounge" and I must say that it has grown on me more and more with repeated listens. I have resigned myself to the fact that Leppard are not going to reach the dizzying heights of their Hysteria days and am enjoying the album for what it is. Good fun, easy listening, rock 'n' roll! I think it is miles better than "X" and although very different I would say from my point of view it is their best since "Slang". If you didn't like Slang, that may not be a good thing though :-)

Anyway I think you should give this album a go, you may just like it, but don't be expecting Hysteria or Pyromania.
