I give this album a 7/10. DEF LEPPARD sound a lot like AC/DC on this one. My favorite guitar player is Angus Young & Steve & Pete sounded a lot like him. Joe sounds like he's trying to sing a little like Bon Scott,but hes not quiet there. Anyway they did GOOD! GIBSON ROCKS!!

About my wrong comment up there. Angus Young is my favorite guitar player after STEVE,PHIL,& PETE. By the way, Joe does sound like he's trying to sound like Bon Scott, but he's better than that. I absolutely wasn't saying Joe had a bad voice & Im not saying that Bon Scott sounds bad either. Joe & Bon both have good voices but there both different. I now that DEF LEPPARD like AC/DC just like me, but DEF LEPPARD WILL ALWAYS BE #1 FOR ME!!!!!!! AC/DC #2. OR THEY CAN BE EQUAL FOR #1. THERE BOTH GREAT BANDS WITH A LOT OF HEART.

This tour was the first concert I had ever gone to. Had been a fan for a couple years and I was 15 when I went to see them. I will never forget it! Saw them again just a few years ago in Milwaukee with Journey, missed the show last year but not again! 42 and I am still a huge Def Leppard fan, now I get to share the music with my kids, it never gets old! Love you guys, thanks for the memories!

In 1984 the album was reissued with remixes of "Heartbreak" and "Me and My Wine" (which doesn't sound remixed but Mutt would insist that he did!). I have the early EU CD but in the States the original track order is restored.

Bringin' on the Heartbreak is simply an amazing song
