Product Description

Japanese Version featuring a Bonus Track: Love and Affection (Live).

Amazon.ca

Probably Def Leppard's best album, and certainly their most successful, Hysteria pretty much sums up 80s 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 like "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. Def Leppard may be remembered more for their hair than their music these days, but that's more due to changing tastes than anything else. It's still good. --Genevieve Williams

The packaging is odd. There's a sticker on the bottom of this CD that surrounds the entire disc. If you peel it, the cover will tear too. So you have to get a knife and literately cut the side where the packaging folds in order to open it. Also, disc 2 was just thrown together. A lot of it is just them practicing their instruments without any lyrics. My lady really loved this album so I bought the deluxe version, because the original has not been updated since the 1980's, but if you don't love it save your money. As I said, disc two is a waste.

Excellent. Landmark 80's album of a young band in their prime. Love the signature sound of Steve "Steamin' Clark. The band was never the same after his passing. I was thrilled to see that tour and actually met him with Joe Eliot and Phil Colen way back when at Club Soda in Vancouver :O Animal is one of my favorite songs of all time. Check the concert video In your face In the Round. All concert stages should be set in the centre like that. Long live rock and roll.

Released in 1987 four years after their breakthrough t album, Pyromania , Hysteria remains UK band Def Leppard's peak commercially. The band may have thought it was impossible to have a more successful album than Pyromania was but they outdid themselves and Hysteria went on to sell more copies than its predecessor. Producer Mutt Lange wanted Hysteria to be a rock version of Michael Jackson's Thriller album; every track had to be a potential single. After the events following Pyromania which was a very successful record in its own right, the band came back and was now bigger than ever selling over 12 million copies in the U.S. alone, marking a truly magnificent comeback. Some listeners may feel that this album was overproduced, especially compared to the band's earlier albums On Through The Night and High `N' Dry but back then Hysteria was current and what was cutting edge. Hysteria is a softer, not so distant, but natural evolution of Pyromania an at that point many bands had gone softer with a more commercial and pop-like direction at this point. With its seven singles (that's right, seven) Hysteria was simply inescapable if you were alive in the late 1980's and many of those songs continue to receive considerable airplay on classic rock radio.

Hysteria is an achievement for the band. In 1984 drummer Rick Allen lost an arm in a vehicle accident making the 3 years between Pyromania and Hysteria difficult ones for the band. The band could've went on with another drummer but they supported Rick and the young drummer developed a new technique with the help of electronic foot pedals that allowed him to reproduce sounds he would usually play with both arms. It's really incredible that Rick was determined enough to continue when he could have been devastated and quit.

80's bands...big hair, boozing, and lots of girls. This is the case of the notorious band Def Leppard. Their music changed the world of rock and roll forever. Hysteria was their fourth album out in the stores, which was noted as the best of the time. It was released on October 25, 1987 and their popularity rose as a result. Hysteria was an Auio CD published by Polygram Records and named their most successful album. Sales were extremely high for this album becasue of tunes like "Pour Some Sugar On Me." In all, sixteen million copies were sold, twelve million in the United States alone.
The number one song that Def Leppard is mainly remembered for is "Pour Some Sugar On Me." The provocative lyrics threw listeners for a loop. "Love is like a bomb baby come on get it on..." and "I'm hot, sticky sweet, from my head to my feet..." are just a few of the lyrics to the song. This is one of the most remembered songs from Hysteria because of this. Even after more than a decade teenagers are still dancing and singing along to the song. When listening, the tune isn't outdated even after many years and changes to the style of music. At concerts whenever the band breaks out into this song the women go crazy. The electric guitar and drums knocked fans out of their seats and on to their feet when the song was played. The song keeps its rhythm and speed throughout the entire number.
In all, Def Leppard created music on the Hysteria album that changed rock and roll forever. The rhythm and beats were the first of their time. The album was a favorite to most fans and sold millions of copies. Over half of tracks ended up as singles on the radio, proving that the members of Def Leppard had become bigger than they had ever dreamed. Hysteria will always be remembered as the record that shaped stardom for the band Def Leppard.

Hysteria is easily Def Leppard's defining album and it's obvious why that is. The album consists of no less than seven hit singles: Women, Rocket, Animal, Love Bites, Pour some sugar on me, Armageddon It, & Hysteria (the first 6 playing in order!) and the albums 5 other tracks are no slouches either (not a weak moment on the album). Another important point of Hysteria is that it followed Def Leppard's other masterpiece "Pyromania" by four years. The gap was due to drummer Rick Allen being in an automobile accident that cost him an arm. An electronic drum kit was developed especially for Allen and he turned in a performance equal too if not better than on "Pyromania". Being a drummer I can't help but have admiration for Rick Allen, if for no other reason than having dedication & drive to return to what he does and sounding amazing. The entire band (Joe Elliott, Phil Collen, Steve Clark, Rick Savage, and Rick Allen) turn out equally amazing perfomances here making this album a veritable classic. Def Leppard had a sound all of their own in a time when many bands were unoriginal. That sound is no better captured than on Hysteria. A must own.
