Product Description

Product Description

Japanese-only SHM-CD (Super High Material CD) pressing of this classic 1983 album from the Rock legends. SHM-CDs can be played on any audio player and delivers unbelievably high-quality sound. You won't believe it's the same CD! Universal. 2008.

Amazon.ca

Def Leppard's rock sensibilities shot them right to the top of the charts in the 1980s. On their third album, Pyromania, the band reconciled new wave melodicism with heavy metal and catchy hooks without compromising any of its edge. The album has sold over 10 million copies, due in part to heavy rotation on MTV. But even without their ubiquitous television presence, anthems like "Rock of Ages" and "Foolin'" still had the stuff that drove the kids crazy. Bursts of screaming guitars and simple power riffs joined forces with choruses that begged to be shouted along to. Guitarists Phil Collen and Steve Clarke may have provided all the pyrotechnics on Pyromania, but the focal point of Def Leppard's sound, particularly for their teenage female fans, was singer Joe Elliott's voice (and, of course, his hair). The record--an essential brick in the foundation of '80s metal--also contains the hit "Photograph". --Steve Gdula

I just didn't like this album. These Deluxe releases of Def Leppard, the La's and Streisand are just thrown together without much care. Really, the second discs are a waste and the booklet just has a few more pictures. Where they get you is that the original CDs have not been remastered since their release so your stuck with this poor attempt at a deluxe version. It's a bit overpriced too.

By LeBrain HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on July 27 2009
Format: Audio CD
Pyromania is one of those landmark albums that every rock fan should own: Over 10 million copies sold, 3 classic hit singles, and a sound that at the time was so new and fresh that everybody took notice. This is before Rick Allen's accident, before Steve Clark's death, and before Def Leppard had any serious hits. 3 would prove to be their lucky number when they set down to record their third album.

This reissue sounds fantastic. It brings the glory of Mutt Lange's groundbreaking production into daylight. The liner notes (by one of my favourite writers, Rolling Stone's David Fricke) reveal Mutt's obsession: At one point the band were laying down entire chords one note at a time in order to get the right amount of power. Their goal was to create an album that nobody had made before, and they succeeded. (Hard to believe that they would pull off the same stunt twice, and do it again on Hysteria, as different from Pyromania as it was from the bands that copied Pyromania!)

Unlike the Hysteria and Adrenalize Deluxe Editions, with Pyromania there were no extra tracks lying around unreleased, and no B-sides available. (The liner notes reveal that an 11th song was written, but not much else.) Instead the bonus second CD is filled with an awesome sounding show from the Pyromania tour. It's important to remember that no live albums or videos were released by Def Leppard until post-Hysteria, so this is the only live release featuring Rick Allen before his accident. Def Leppard sound absolutely ferocious. Joe Elliot's voice is at its vocal-cord-shredding best, gargling glass like AC/DC. Steve Clark and Phil Collen (a new addition) rip and shred on their guitars and weave them into a wall of thunder. Allen and Rick Savage keep it rolling on the rhythm section, never letting up.

Released in 1983 Pyromania was UK band Def Leppard's big break, this is the album that got them recognition in the U.S. and for many of us, the first taste of the band. Its well-known now, Pyromania was a huge hit for the band earning 10X Platinum status in States alone (its 1987 follow up, Hysteria, was even more successful earning over 12X Platinum) and it remains one of the band's best album. Def Leppard was originally part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal scene in the early 1980's but for Pyromania the band had adopter a different approach with a lighter pop sound that brought them much more commercial success. I'm not sure if Def Lepp is considered a Hair or Glam-Metal band but they did have an influence on the movement and they seem to have the respect of most metal fans. If they are, then they would certainly be one of the better hair bands, to me it's just good classic rock'n'roll. In 2009 Pyromania received the big upgrade as it was remastered and re-released with an extra live CD from the band's performance in 1983 at the L.A. Forum. This was an album which deserved a deluxe treatment; it was an important part of Leppard's history and a big album in the 80's.

Let's go through some of the songs. Pyromania starts off with the rocking "Rock Rock (Till You Drop), an energizing song and a great way to kick-start the album. "Photograph" was the second Def Leppard song I heard (first of course was "Pour Some Sugar On Me") and to this day it remains one of my favorite with what I'd describe as an instantly catchy chorus it's hard not to like this one. Then of course there are the excellent ballads "Too Late For Love" and the highly underrated "Comin' Under Fire", I always thought this song never got the recognition it deserves.

Pyromania is the brdige between a very good album, (High N Dry) and a pretty good one(Hysteria). Pyromania is the great one. This album kicked off what Back in Black, by AC/DC almost did. Placing metal in the mainstream and keeping it there for sometime. Remember, for about 10 years after this album, Metal music was a norm on top 40 radio. In the same way hip hop is in control of radio and videos today, Pop Metal was by far the biggest thing going on MTV and top 40 radio for about a decade. Although, The Seattle movement is credited for putting and end to it, Nirvanna, Peral Jam, ect, in reality, they were still Hard Rock bands that thrived off of top 40 Radio and MTV, which would have never happend 10 years before. Pop Metal opened the door for allowing Heavy music to be heard by the casual observer. Def Leppard's Pyromania is revolutionary, not only for the metal bands that followed, but for the Metal bands that already were and received larger appeal( Van Halen, Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, Areosmith, Metallica) due to what Pyromania jump started. Therefore, setting up even the hard Seattle bands. When you hear Photograph and Rock of Ages on the radio today they still sound fresh. Def Leppard's Pyromania, a true classic and true Rock of the Ages
