Guest review by

I'm not quite sure what everyone thinks of Def Leppard nowadays, but there's no denying that in the early eighties they were one of the best bands of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal. Life changing albums like Pyromania still inspire young musicians to this day, and if you're wondering how this album sounds, overshadowed as it is by its successor Hysteria, rest assured it's nothing like "Pour Some Sugar On Me" or "Let's Get Rocked," to mention a few.

  This is a straight 10/10 for me. It still amazes me and gives me so much pleasure in listening to it. The best Def Leppard album PYROMANIA...

Rating: 8 Out of their first four albums, this is probably my favourite. Big hooks, massive-sounding production and the vocals (though sometimes seeming a ripped-off version of bon scott) sound really confident. This is just such a great album.

  I listened to it first time back in '94 if I remember right, listened to it a lot and it got old pretty fast. I skip a lot of songs when listening to it these days. Not a bad album.

I've never got bored with their first two albums though.

  Very strong release, with "Photograph" being the killer song.

Rating: 5 I thought its good, but more I live more metal is alive, more I don't think classic is to listen (I wish I was able convince dead one) but still , if in days when I get this there would be MA and MS, I wont never get it
