Re: 80's albums that hold up on any level
Hysteria holds up in the sense that it is just as awful as it ever was.
Honestly I think the older Def Leppard material like On Through The Night is less dated because it is not half as slick and obviously 80s hair era, and thus more likely to appeal to a new listener these days.
I think Def Leppard really hit their peak around the second half of the song "Let It Go". By the time Pyromania
came along, everything was already sounding like "product".
"The whole show was an attempt to say that humanity will reach maturity and wisdom on the day that it begins not just to tolerate, but to take a special delight in differences in ideas and differences in life forms." — Gene Roddenberry
