Slang (2CD)

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, Rovi

Take one of the most underrated albums of all time (Slang) by one of the best rock bands of all time (Def Leppard) and re-release it as a deluxe edition and what do you get...Perfection. This Deluxe edition gives you 30 tracks that include: the 11 tracks on the original album, 10 new songs, and 9 alternate versions of the songs that appeared on the original release. Underrated when originally released, I could not be happier that Def Leppard is giving Slang a second chance. If you are new to Slang, it is different from most of the Def Leppard catalog. Where some albums have that "wall of guitars and vocals" sound, Slang is much more subdued. These songs are crafted like they came directly from the soul. The instruments feel like they are toned down to increase the soulfulness while the lyrics are expanded to extend deeper thoughts (ie. Where does love go when it dies.) The new songs are just as exquisite as the songs on the original release. “Move With Me Slowly” and “Can’t Keep Away From the Flame” provides an acoustic style that Def Leppard utilized for “Two Steps Behind” while “Burn Out” and “Worlds Collide” feature Def Leppard on electric guitars and that “wall of vocals” sound that Def Leppard has mastered. The alternate versions of the songs originally released offer a glimpse into the musical masterminds that are Def Leppard. Additionally, the original songs sound more vibrant than the original CD which implies remastering took place. Originally released in 1996, Slang still sounds as vibrant today as it did nearly 18 years ago. A great album by one of the all time great bands.
