Probably Def Leppard's best album and certainly their most successful, Hysteria pretty much sums up 1980s hard rock: catchy, tuneful and fun. It's also one of the few albums from the period that doesn't sound dated now, and singles such as "Pour Some Sugar On Me", "Armageddon It" and "Rocket" remain staples of rock radio. The rest of the album is equally entertaining; "Animal" and "Hysteria", while mid-tempo, have the same slick intensity, and "Love Bites" is one of the few pop-metal ballads that doesn't sound saccharine over a decade after its release. --Genevieve Williams

i first heard "animal" at the end of 1987 driving home from work on the A38. the radio played listlessly in the background, on through habit more than anything else. But hang on - what's this? A classic driving rock song emerges from the tinny speakers- a minute later triumphant soaring chord heralds the chorus "AND I WANT!! AND I NEED !!. I bought the album "hysteria" the next day from woolies . The melodies, the harmonies, the guitars,the personalities!!!!. This album is one of the all time rare pleasures in life, an album of music guaranteed to uplift. There is no nostalgia about this record because it has'nt dated unlike its predecessor "Pyromania" which although excellent has got 1982 written all over it.
Along with "Slippery When Wet" this album ushered in an era of heavy guitars, singalong choruses and loads of hair and spandex.
You know what? it was great.............

In April 1989, this reviewer was on a school trip and borrowed a friends Walkman and played the cassette tape within. After 10 seconds I sat up from my bunk bed and could not believe what I was hearing. I was a fan of Michael Jackson and Tears For Fears. I liked Bon Jovi’s Livin’ On A Prayer and Van Halen’s Jump. But in terms of hard rock bands, my knowledge was limited.

10 seconds of ‘Women’ and I could not comprehend what I was hearing. Even through crappy headphones on a Walkman, this sound was huge……………………..and so it remains. That day I managed to get through Women, Rocket and Animal before I was required elsewhere but I made a mental note of the band’s name, the iconic looking font….DEF LEPPARD. How could I forget the image on the front of the cassette case. What was it? I’m still not sure. I vowed that when I got home, I would seek this out.

Cut to three days later and I am in Woolworths holding before me a vinyl album with those same words. I was now the owner of Def Leppard’s Hysteria album. This was the best thing I had ever heard. 26 years later and it’s still the best thing I have ever heard.

I’m not going to discuss the sonics, the songs, the harmonies, the multi-layered guitars. I’m not going to discuss Rick Allens tragic accident because whilst extremely sad, the very need for synthesised drums helped the album sound the way it does. It doesn’t matter that the album was made several times over then scrapped and started all over again. Whilst many things helped and hindered the creation of this album, nothing can do it justice more than how I came to love it.

Get it. Sit down. Stick some headphones on. Play it Loud.

It will be the best thing you have ever heard.

I only discovered this album recently and I've been listening to it most days when I'm driving or working out. There isn't much to add to the other 5 star reviews. It falls into the loud driving rock category rather than the 'thoughtful lyric gentle melody' category, but it's good fun and lifts the spirits after a hard day at work. Some of the lyrics are a little shallow, but you don't really listen to this kind of music for the lyrics - well, I don't anyway. Good, strong rock music. If you haven't heard Def Leppard before it's a good place to start and, as other reviewers have noted, it hasn't really dated.

Arguably the greatest rock album from the greatest rock band of all time.

You can't deny the beguiling magic of this album, it is crammed full of genius melodies and hooks which make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck.

A must buy for 80's rock fans this is a classic.

"Hysteria" combines rock and pop together in perfect harmony, and is by far Def Leppard's best album to date. "Hysteria" was recorded after drummer Rick Allen's accident, and released in 1987, at a time when "stadium rock bands" like "Bon Jovi" were at the top of their career. This trend in rock that occurred during the late 1980's continues on Def Leppard's album, with tracks such as "Pour Some Sugar on Me" and "Animal". After listening to this album, you will understand why this album made such an impact on music in general, it was recorded in a "futuristic" fashion for its time, using back-masking, vocal editing and recording individual notes one at a time.
The album begins with "Women", which was released in the U.S by Def Leppard as the 1st single off the album. "Women" didn't chart well in the U.S, and lead singer Jo Elliot often condemns the song, probably due to its lack of success in America. Aside from the negativeness surrounding the song, it remains a classic song to me, emphasising the "wonder" of "Women", and is a perfect start to the album. The slower versus and the amazing chorus of this song makes it a rock song hard to match by any other band.
Next, the listener is shown Def Leppard's creativity, with "Rocket". The idea of "Rocket" came from an African tribal recording, which may seem rather odd for a rock song. Listen closely throughout, and you will be sure to pick up the beat of the tribal music straight away. "Rocket" is about Def Leppard's musical influences during their childhood, listeners who were around during the glam rock era of the 1970's will pick up the continuous references. In the middle of the song is an interlude, which sounds extremely "different" to any other Def Leppard song.
