Saturday Night High and Dry? It's good hard rock but it is no Tai Shan, see Tai Shan is a Rush song NOTHING Def Leppard did comes close.

Pyromania is better than any album Rush released before Hemispheres or after Signals until Clockwork Angels.

one second of any 70s or 80s rush song obliterates the entire careers of e'nuff z'nuff, bulletboys, def leppard, ratt, winger, warrant, poison, britny fox, firehouse, cinderella, all of em.

I do like early motley crue, a few WASP albums, and twisted sister. I also like the first 2 skid row records, so I'm not totally anti-hair, but it ain't my thing. and any 70s/80s rush still shits on that stuff, imo

nah, I'm being harsh. I like a few songs on pyromania, but that seems like one of those records you had to be there to really like, and I usually can't get into "you had to be there" albums

Well, let's stick with Pyromania.

I'm a Rush fan, so I can find something to enjoy on every album.  We can probably debate the first 5 albums vs. Pyromania (I'm still going with Pyromania though).  I'm surprised though that you would say that Pyromania sounds dated, and stuff like PoW and HYF doesn't.  They scream 1980s synth pop.

I don't mind Def Leppard. The have some good professional rock songs. But I never got the impression that they were artists, they came across more as craftsmen. They sound and appear very calculating and deliberate. Not original, but not insulting. I leave that to Bon Jovi...

haha, I never said my taste was consistent. I think power windows and hold your fire sound very dated, I just happen to really like them. that stuff seems to have a lot more to it than debbie gibson or tiffany or something, imo, but it's definitely dated synth pop. what I meant about def leppard is that pretty much everyone I know who likes them was either a teen in the 80s or is the son/daughter of someone who was a teen in the 80s and has heard def leppard since birth. peter frampton is another artist who seems like a "had to be there" type, because no one younger than 50 is into him.

I get what you mean. after high n dry, they get a bit too polished and pro for me. of course, rush have sounded totally polished and professional since, what, 1980? so I might just be talking out of my ass.

But Women from Hysteria isn't.  Hysteria is the tipping point for me.  Half of it is good stuff, half of it is too sugary (no pun intended).

I love Def Leppard.  Pyromania is a masterpiece. It was just overplayed.  MTV didn't help.
Give me some Dokken baby!

Anyway I must say that "Slang" is one of the worst albums in the world!
