About the Album

After the lackluster performance of Adrenalize, Def Leppard realized it was time to abandon their trademark wall-of-guitars sound. Jettisoning producer Mutt Lange -- who, admittedly, was busy producing his wife, country singer Shania Twain -- the group stripped its sound to the basics for Slang. There are very few layers-of-guitar effects on the album, just straight, crunching chords. Most notably, Rick Allen has returned to playing acoustic drums after playing an electronic kit for nearly a decade. The change in approach is apparent and welcome -- Def Leppard hasn't sounded so immediate since Pyromania. Furthermore, they decided to expand their musical vocabulary slightly, working elements of R&B and funk into the rhythms. Not all of the experiments work, but Def Leppard sound revitalized, particularly when they attack a straightforward rocker. Slang would have been even better if they had come up with a set of hooks that sounded as alive as their performance, but the album is a much-needed return to form for the group. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5★ by 1reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by This CD is Great! This album is definitely a radical change in direction from the prior album, "Adrenalize" but I love every song on this CD. It's just from the heart and is the first time we get to see Vivian Campbell's addition to the band's sound. How much of that is coincidental to the changes in direction the band wanted to make after the sucess of "Adrenalize" is unknown, but what is known is this is a really wonderful addition to my collection, I got it when it was released and still listen to it every week, and almost every day. I recommend it for any true fan of Def Leppard, it's well worth the money and time spent listening to it to see what else this band is capable of. 01/19/2008
