3.0 out of 5 stars Nowhere near their glory days, 21 May 2008
This review is from: Songs From The Sparkle Lounge (Audio CD)
Since the death of Steve Clark, Def Leppard have been trying to reinvent themselves: the experimental Slang, the back-to-basics Euphoria and the disappointing X. The new album promises much but delivers very little. Are they desperate for a hit? I think they could be by including Tim McGraw on Nine Lives - what's the point in that, don't the band think they're big enough to do it on their own anymore? Or more importantly, perhaps the record label don't. After compilations and an awful covers album, the fans deserved better. There are highlights though such as Love and Only the Good Die Young, but like all the other post-Clark albums it's inconsistent, confused and unsatisfying. In short this is no Pyromania or Hysteria and only just on a par with Adrenalize. Personally speaking, they should have released a live album/DVD to remind us all just how great they can be. Even by Def Leppard's standards, Leps fans have been waiting a long time for some live work.
