Rated 4 out of 5 by rockfanofthe80s Great early Def Leppard
I was introduced to Def Leppard in '83 with the Pyromania album. I listened to it constantly, and played air drums to it, which was a blast. My older cousin would tell me how High N Dry was really Def Leppard's best album. To this day I disagree (Pyromania is without question the best rock album of the 80s), but it IS a great album nonetheless.
High N Dry is really high energy 80s rock that has something most other bands really lacked at that time: melody and harmony. Their sense of melody and ability to sing great harmonies has always differentiated Def Leppard from their peers- I don't care who you're talking about. Def Leppard- even at this early stage- were always a great singing rock band.
Anyone hoping for the more produced sound of "Hysteria" will be disappointed; this is really (along with Pyromania) the best of Def Leppard: raw and energetic. I love listening to High N Dry to take me back to the early and mid-80s when "Bringin' On the Heartbreak" was still on Mtv. I hope you enjoy it too: it's some of the best 80s rock ever made.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Musicstudent123 Outstanding CD
Hard Rock/Metal at it's finest. This CD gets up and goes and doesn't stop. Def Leppard's skillful guitar playing make this CD a classic.
