Def Leppard - Yeah! (2006) Retail CD
Ever since the mega-success of their 80s albums, Hysteria and Pyromania, Def Leppared have had considerable laurels to rest upon. Some might say a covers album was them doing exactly that.
But actually it's good to hear them cut loose on some of their favourite tracks - the rock band that only occasionally surfaced on X (Four Letter Word, mainly) is here a lot more often.
And their song selection is pretty solid. I don't know all the originals, but where I do these come across as being mostly pretty faithful but better recorded versions (stand up Waterloo Sunset, Hanging On The Telephone, etcmore…).
The album is worth the price of entry for two tracks - Mott's Golden Age Of Rock and Roll and T-Rex's 20th Century boy. These sprint out of the starter's blocks and display far more energy than the originals ever did.
Biggest dissappointment of the album for me was HellRaiser - the Sweet song is fantastic but the Leppard cover version feels like it's missing something (I think it's in the verse guitar parts) and Justin Hawkins (of squeaking for The Darkness fame) performs pretty woefully.
But overall it is a good listen, you can easily have it on and not feel the urge to skip any tracks, which has to be a good thing.
