UMUR
"Hysteria" is the 4th full-length studio album by UK hard/heavy rock act Def Leppard. The album was released through Mercury Records in August 1987. "Hysteria" is one of those albums with a really interesting recording history. Right after coming home from a one year long tour supporting "Pyromania (1983)", the band moved in together and imidiately starting writing material for their next album. The writing sessions were under the supervision of producer Robert John "Mutt" Lange, but when it became time to record the album Lange bailed out because he felt exhausted. The band brought in Jim Steinman (Meat Loaf) to produce the album but after working with Steinman for many months and recording almost a full album´s length of material, the band fired Steinman because they didn´t agree with his vision, and decided to start from scratch. The band wanted a more polished and accessible sound compared to Steinman´s vision of a more raw and unpolished rock´n´roll sound. After firing Steinman the band opted to produce the album themselves with Robert John "Mutt" Lange´s recording engineer Nigel Green, but that turned out fruitless too. It´s wasn´t until Lange returned to produce the album that things started to happen, and they actually happened pretty fast.

So the band had a lot of trouble with the production of the album but in addition to that drummer Rick Allen was also struck with a personal tragedy on the 31st of December 1984, when he lost his left arm in an auto accident. Not only was the recovery process hard, but he also had to learn to play on a new special designed drumkit. "Hysteria" is definitely one of those albums which had a painful birth, which must have made it even more satisfying for the band when the album spawned no less that seven hit singles and sold millions of copies (estimated around 20 million copies worldwide).

The music on the album is an accessible, melodic and catchy type heavy rock. You won´t find much of a heavy metal edge here, but it´s damn catchy material. It´s obvious that everything has been thought through in detail. The sound production is big, layered and polished. The choruses generally feature a lot of AOR type layered choirs and they are easy to sing along to. There is no doubt the band got exactly what they wanted with "Hysteria": "A rock album that could hit the pop charts". With an album where seven out of twelve tracks are hit singles it´s almost ridiculous mentioned specific tracks, but I guess tracks like "Pour Some Sugar On Me", "Love Bites" and "Women" still deserve a mention.

No one can question the popularity of "Hysteria". It´s through and through a successful album. It sold incredibly well and the band were excited and happy about it. People into softer heavy rock will probably agree with the band, but if your preference is for more raw type of heavy rock/hard rock, this is probably not the best investment. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is warranted.

There are many ways to describe an album. Some of the definitions that are used to describe an album may even be contradictory. Yet not mean they are not all true. If I had to describe "On Through The Night" would I be to describe it as Hard Rock mixed with raw power, technique, feeling, Rolling Stones mixed with Judas Priest and Kiss. I do not know, though, maybe... I could be off the road. I read that Def Leppard were the most American of the NWOBHM movement... But, OK, Jimi Hendrix and Suzi Quatro were Americans and their ultimate success came in the UK!

As for the style of "On Through The Night" ... Pure Rock'n'Roll, similar to Kiss but wilder, less exciting ... I would say more a Judas Priest copy that anything else. I find that listening more carefully "On Through The Night" is a mix of Judas Priest for melodies, Suzi Quatro for vocals and Kiss for arrangements! All in all, not heresy to say, a perfect group of the province that combining two things already feel can emerge with something new. Listen to the guitars, pissed and wild, the drum work damn powerful and explosive, listen to bass lines, fucking powerful and listen to the vocal lines, copied from billions of singers, not just Metal.

"On Through The Night" is an album that can not grow old. And that can not be heard if not all in one breath. And, in that way, tasted and understood.

I still remember buying this cassette in the city of Barrie and popping it into the cassette player in my car as i took the 35 minute drive home.I got a lot of mileage out of that cassette over the years.And while i prefered the earlier "Pyromania" recording there's just too many great tunes on here to dismiss it.I went and saw them on that tour down in Hamilton,Ontario where QUEENSRYCHE opened up for them.It was a great show although i must admit i was wired for sound that night.On a side note i would write off my TransAm in a car accident in 1988 and bought a pick-up truck.I wanted to put "Comfortably Numb" on the sides of the truck but thought that would draw too much attention to me from the cops so i put "Hysteria" on it.Looking back i'm not sure why i did that because this wasn't even close to being my favourite album.I guess i just thought it sounded cool. Three great tunes to start in "Women" , "Rocket" and "Animal".They're all so catchy and easy to "rock out" to."Animal" especially did a lot for me.A feel good tune if there ever was one. "Love Bites" was the ballad and "Pour Some Sugar On Me" the big single.Not too impressed with either but at the time they were okay. "Armageddon It" was great.Some attitude there and so catchy. "Gods Of War" was well done with the affects early on then this beat that was addictive.Good song. "Don't Shoot Shotgun" never did a lot for me. "Run Riot" was better.Lots of energy. "Hysteria" makes me smile.Those were the days with that green eyed blonde at my side."Hysteria when your near"."Excitable" was hard not to bob your head to. "Love And Affection" was okay. A good Pop-Metal album that i still get a kick out of.

Late in 1979 i started buying cassettes instead of LPS because most of my listening back then was in my Trans Am.This was one of the few recordings i actually had on vinyl and cassette.The first time i ever heard of this band was when reading a Rock magazine and there was this picture of them all wearing t-shirts with different band names on them.They were all bands that i loved so i remembered the name DEF LEPPARD.I still remember buying this cassette and popping it in as we left the store for the 35 minute ride home.I had some Jensen triaxle 3 speakers in the back and a power-booster/equilizer so i could crank it.I remember the music being so loud at times i couldn't hear myself when i'd cough.Hey do you guys remember the video for "Photograph" with Elliott in that Union Jack t-shirt and Steve Clark with that low slung Les Paul ? Love these bands with the two lead guitarists.Phil Collen was the other one.Joe Elliott looked so much like this guy named Bobby i used to hang with in High School.Sadly he overdosed out in British Columbia many years ago."Pyromania" was my favourite recording from the band.Sure there was nothing too complex about it but it rocked out pretty good and had lots of great sounding tracks.My favourite was "Foolin'" but i liked them all."Comin' Under Fire" was probably the darkest and heaviest.Great tune.Anyway as i re-visit it there are defintetly lots of issues but this will always have sentimental value to me.Driving around the beaches with the t-roof off in the summer was a blast and this was a big part of it in the early eighties.

To the pop music world in the 1980s, Def Leppard were darlings of MTV (when they still played music videos of course) and 'metal' radio. While their sex symbol status and popularity were nothing to scoff at, this doesn't entirely translate to music. For the average music fan, the singles like "Pour Some Sugar on Me", "Love Bites", and "Animal" are great for the random shuffled song on your iPod. For metalheads, though, anything past High n' Dry is not worth much time.

For one thing, this is one of those albums that are closer to a collection of songs rather than one cohesive work. The band was working to create something like Michael Jackson's Thriller where every song was a potential hit single. This is good for a singles band such as Def Leppard, but after a while listening to the album the songs tend to lose their luster.

That being said, there are some downright catchy riffs to be found. The singles previously mentioned are worth every minute on a classic rock radio station due to their ear-worm melodies. Also worth mentioning is "Rocket", with a bouncy little ditty firing off of pop culture references.

Metal? Not to be found here. There's little development, no heaviness, and while metal prides itself on basing its music on elements not found in pop music, Hysteria is one of those albums that sucks all those elements up and rolls around in them.

That being said, metalheads should enjoy the song "Gods of War", which starts off with an atmospheric aura and builds into a fantastic riff in a way that bands like Def Leppard don't really do. It's not a prog song in any respect of the word, but the intro develops in a way that prog and metal fans should appreciate it.

Overall, Hysteria is a (good) collection of pop/rock singles that was caught up in the 'hysteria' of glam metal in the 80s. It was everything a radio station wanted in the day: it was filled with tons of hooks and sugary melodies played by a band that they could call metal. Unfortunately, these elements translate poorly overall to the real metal community and it is hardly a recommended album in that respect.
