Def Leppard - 1980 On Through The Night
This is the least remembered Leppard album by fans and band alike. It was one of countless classic metal and hard rock albums that hit shelves in 1980, a breakthrough year for British metal.

Def Leppard - 1981 High N Dry
'High N Dry' was a fairly successful follow up to the heavy but crude NWOBHM inspired debut.

Def Leppard - 1983 Pyromania
Leppard have never come close to equalling this musically and for once that's not a bad thing.

Def Leppard - 1987 Hysteria
Regardless of what you or I might think of this album, it certainly appealed to a great number of people - over 20 million. And during 1987-1988, this album was all over the charts and airwaves.

Def Leppard - 1992 Adrenalize
'Adrenalize' was a continuation of the 'Hysteria' approach, another slickly produced hard rock bonanza. Most observers would consider 'Hysteria' far superior to 'Adrenalize', but this album has its moments and for me is the last acceptable album they've made.

Def Leppard - 2002 X
It's coming up to the end of the decade, and there are a few contenders for the decade's worst albums. This would surely have to be in the list..

Def Leppard - 2008 Songs From The Sparkle Lounge
For discerning punters, this year has been a pretty good one thus far, but 'Songs From The Sparkle Lounge' will be struggling to make it onto everyone's top 10 list in my opinion.

Def Leppard - 2013 Viva! Hysteria
These live albums in general are pointless and tedious, to be remembered by nobody in years to come. The Leps have tried to make this unique to some degree, but it's the continued hawking of 'Hysteria' which ails me.

Def Leppard - 2015 Def Leppard
Leppard said this would be their most diverse album to date and based on the evidence they weren't lying, but as I stated earlier I believe they've successfully deceived everyone. By placing the two most blatant 80's throwbacks as the opening tracks and releasing them as singles they led many to believe the entire album was similar, which it obviously isn't. Some may disagree and claim this is their best work in some time, but it's more a case of clever marketing than reality.

The Essential Series - 2017 Glam Metal (Volume 1) by Dtabachn
Commonly, public at large as well as critics and writers fail to identify the importance of Glam Metal as a crucial Metal sub-genre. In the sense that it was the driving force behind the fact that Metal was arguably the dominant genre in popular music around the mid to late 80's.

The Essential Series - 2017 NWOBHM (Volume 1) by Gdazegod
This was the movement which effectively kickstarted the heavy metal industry as we know it today. Here is our first Volume looking at this part of the HM scene, out of Britain.
