DEF LEPPARD “Songs from the Sparkle Lounge” (Bludgeon Riffola/Universal Music) - ENGLAND

Band as legendary as the Def Leppard is never be forgotten by their mystical albums from the past and we knew someday, they will come with such attempt to recapture their glory days. Sadly it failed. This is their twelfth releases, with a cover art reminds me “A Night at The Opera” by BLIND GUARDIAN except it was cheap Photoshopped from Alias Design. It’s totally crap. They’re experimenting a bit with new groovy guitars sound and more organic drum structures and sound, but still it worthless to be considered as strong and inspired rock album.

I like their sound, it is massive and superb and rich, most of the choruses are catchy and macho, but the rest of the part is weak and forgettable music arrangement.

The best song here should be the beautiful ballad called “Love”, sharp acoustic guitars with Elliot’s fine vocals tune is very identical although clearly it was QUEEN rip off. But still it’s so good.

I spanned this cd twice and I put in rack of cds collections. Not knowing when I will play it again?
