Def Leppard’s Volume Three might not contain their best work but it still sparkles

Metal Hammer

Significantly for collectors, this marks a first-time-on-vinyl release for the albums X, Yeah! and Songs From The Sparkle Lounge. Along with these are two discs of almost all the associated non-album studio recordings and one of live covers. (Six-CD boxes are also available.)

For those who need reminding, for 2002’s X Def Leppard – at guitarist Phil Collen’s suggestion – used outside writers. In came Marti Frederiksen (the man behind Aerosmith’s Jaded and hits for country star Carrie Underwood), three Swedes who could count Britney Spears among their satisfied customers, and Wayne Hector (author of seven Westlife No.1s). Hector’s Long, Long Way To Go remains the band’s most recent Top 40 hit, but the album mostly misfires.
