The first time I played the Hysteria record, initially I thought I was playing the wrong record. At the time, I thought Hysteria sounded like a slightly heavier version of Duran Duran.

Graceland is a fantastic album.

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".

Re: 80's albums that hold up on any level

I'm a little confused as to the intent of this thread. If it's not strictly to list the best albums of the decade but to distinguish ones that have the classic 80s "vibe" and mojo but still hold up under modern listening, then I have a few that I don't think have yet been listed yet--but apologies if they have.

August -- Eric Clapton
Blackout -- Scorpions
Building the Perfect Beast -- Don Henley
Eliminator -- ZZ Top
Freedom -- Neil Young
Full Moon Fever Tom Petty
Georgia Satellites -- Georgia Satellites
Heart -- Heart
Heart Shaped World -- Chris Isaak
In My Tribe -- 10,000 Maniacs
Kick -- INXS
Learning to Crawl -- The Pretenders
Once Bitten... Great White
So -- Peter Gabriel
Songs from the Big Chair -- Tears for Fears
Sports -- Huey Lewis and the News
Synchronicity -- The Police
Tuff Enuff -- Fabulous Thunderbirds
Uh-Huh -- John Mellencamp

Another vote for 'Graceland' and 'Eliminator'.
