|My favorite Lep album ever. It's full of fire and piss and even though their later stuff sold better this one still has a great feel and energy to it, and I think it's their best work overall. CLASSIC MATERIAL.

|This is the definitive 80's hard rock album!! When I think on 80's hard rock/metal, I think of Pyromania!! A tad more commercial than High n Dry, but by all means, the BEST Def Leppard album, EVER!!!!!! This is truly a top 10 classic hard rock album!!! Everyone MUST own it!!!!!!!!
||Date: September 16, 2001 at 12:06|
|Song for song, this is the best Def Leppard CD. It absolutely smokes. In my opinion from a hard rock standpoint they have not touched the power of this CD. A must own!!!
||Date: October 31, 2001 at 16:34|
|I agree with all of the above! This one takes the cake baby!!! The classic Party cd, I put this one in at every party and if you don't like, LEAVE THE PARTY!!! If you are a hard rock fan, I know you have this one. If you don't, SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!
||Date: January 17, 2002 at 12:39|
|I bought this cd a few months ago and I still listen to it everyday!! I even got the dj to play Rock of Ages at our last school dance!This album is a definite 10!!

|One of their best albums! Thank God it came out back in the 80's...have you all noticed the striking similarity between the album's cover and the sept. 11 events??!! It would have been banned or something!

|STAGEFRIGHT. If you want to turn on anybody to listen to heavy metal, this is the song!!! It's so DAMN GOOD!!! This album is way far more better, (in fact this is EXCELLENT) than the over-cooked Hysteria.
||Date: April 4, 2002 at 15:23|
|Def Leppard's breakthrough. This was Leppard coming into their own band while unknowingly spawning a pop metal revolution that would eventually take place shortly after 'Pyromania's' initial release. All of the songs on here are very good and while 'Pyromania' is in every sense revolutionary, do not mistake this as Lep's all-time best--'Hysteria' was that. And I do agree with the reviewer above--'Photograph' may be a great song & all but 'Stagefright' kicks total ass itself! 9.5/10
||Date: April 8, 2002 at 1:45|
|Probably their best. The power of High and Dry and the songwriting of Hysteria come together. It's a shame they will never rock this hard again.
||Date: April 9, 2002 at 4:14|
|What is all of this living in the past bullshit? You like 'Pyromania'? Fine, then listen to it. You don't KNOW if Leppard will ever 'rock that hard again'--you're not some kind of clairvoyant. Let's stop all this whining about the past; at least DL are still around to this day.
||Date: April 10, 2002 at 21:04|
|Nobody's whining about anything.....the only person that's doing any whining is you!!! DL may still be around today, but they are burned out and DO NOT rock the way they used to. That doesn't mean they suck, but they just aren't as good as before. This is a place for OPINIONS......I have mine....you have yours!!!! This is a place for reviews only....Not a place to whine and cry about what the previous person posted!!! Who cares how he feels!!! These are all just OPINIONS!!!!!!!!

|Thanks for calming me down.

|All I can say is, Def Leppard better be thanking their lucky stars that they found Robert John 'mutt' Lang. Here is another album of theirs that took 9 months and a drum machine to make. Mutt Lang is great! He could make a toilet sound good.
||Date: May 9, 2002 at 7:24|
|I always liked the flushing sound on mine.... ANYWAY, it's cool to give the devil his due, but I think that there is a balance that we must consider. We must give Def Leppard plenty of credit for the work they have done. Lange didn't produce Def's work on 'Adrenalize' and I think that that album sounds just fine. Give Leppard some credit.
||Date: May 9, 2002 at 23:13|
|You are right Dokken6008. Mutt push these guys to do their very best, but it was Joe Elliott who had to scream his lungs out. Also, it wasn't Mutt who played the guitars. I can say it! Def Leppard is a rock and roll power house. I'm giving the devil his due........see ya.
||Date: May 13, 2002 at 4:11|
|I'm cool with that, j. Hey, I hope you have a good time on H. Harmonies, but beware--there are some cool people on here but then again, there are some real jerk-offs. In a short period of time I think you will have learned that. Later, dog.
||Date: May 13, 2002 at 21:48|
|Dokken6008, YOU GOT THAT RIGHT! Some of these 'jerk-offs' just don't get it (and YOU know who YOU are). This is a great web-site, but that doesn't mean all the bands are great. If I think a band like Winger blows, than I'm going to tell ya. People might be thinking about buying that album and I am doing my best to save that person some money.

|How can someone give this album other than 10? A TOP ALBUM. Please Def Leppard, do it again in 2002. 10/10
||Date: June 1, 2002 at 18:19|
|This album and HYSTERIA are a definite 10.I hope their new album is even half as great.
||Date: June 22, 2002 at 12:15|
|This album is a classic in the hard rock category. Def Lepard kicks major ass in this album I wish they still made music like this. Every song on this album kicks ass.
||Date: June 27, 2002 at 6:36|
|Good j., save the people some money--maybe a few have listened to your advice already. And 'samolice', 'X' ain't gonna be no 'Pyromania' but I still bet it's gonna be better than 'Euphoria' and 'Slang' (oh, it better be!).

|There are so many things that can be said about this record, and so many people have said them already. Well, my highest compliment for this album is as follows: Great Mother of Christ, but I sure got a lot of trim because of this record...!!! Just stick it on the turntable, turn the lights down...it was criminally easy to get laid. *Sigh*....
||Date: September 8, 2002 at 8:09|
|Take this album if you're a Def Leppard fan. Otherwise 'Hysteria' can be enough to have an idea on this band. One of the best 'two and a half' Leppard albums! (others; sure 'Hysteria' and the 'half' is 'Adrenalize'). The tracks 'Photograph', 'Too Late For Love', 'Foolin' and 'Rock of Ages' carry the album. On the other hand, I didn't like the record quality. The album would deserve a better one.
|From: Michael Davis

|I liked this album, but it didn't have as much hits as Hysteria did and it managed to be up there with Michael Jackson's 'Thriller'

|This is a killer of a CD. Every track rocks, one of the reasons I listened to metal in the first place. Pyromania and Motley Crues 'Shout At The Devil'. Oh how things used to be so grand in music.

|Second masterpiece from lepps.This album is for me as it is the holy bible for the christians.I dont dare to rate this one also...Absolutely No Alternative...
|From: 80s metal freak
||Date: December 29, 2002 at 20:01|
|ah, its the album, you know, that one album that everyone immediatley associates Def Leppard with. Well, I must say, pyromania is a great album, but how I feel is how I feel, and personally, this is nowhere near as good as High N' Dry, that ablbum was just amazing, but it certainly doesn't completely suck like hysteria. That album was way to overproduced, but in the end Pyromania atleast deserves to be called a good album, but the truth is, most of the crunch is starting to leave on this one.
||Date: January 21, 2003 at 2:53|
| ESTE DISCO SUPONE EL INICIO DE ALGO NUEVO DENTRO DEL ROCK. METAL ELEGANTE Y DURO A LA VEZ, PARA MI UNA MEZCLA ENTRE AC/DC Y FOREIGNER, SIN LOU GRAMM CLARO.

|When I think of Def Leppard, I think of Pyromania. When this album came out, I was just a struggling guitarist. But this album lifted me up. This album came out in a time when the world needed a change in musical direction. Hard Rock in the early 80s was not the greatest until this album came out(with the exception of AC/DC and a handful of other bands). Hard rock/metal didn't become popular until this album came out. This album really set the standards for 80s hard rock/metal. A must have!!!!!!
||Date: February 21, 2003 at 3:21|
|They had this album on VH-1's show 'Ultimate Albums' and, well, that's no lie there! It is one of the best hard rock albums ever. Toss up between this & High & Dry as far as Def Lep's best. A true classic!
||Date: March 5, 2003 at 22:53|
|K-I-L-L-E-R !!!!!!!!!!!!!their best album. only killer-tunes. perfect cross between power and melody. a must have for every rock fan.
||Date: April 15, 2003 at 17:14|
|How can anybody dislike this album? Defenitely belongs in the 'Top 10' best hard rock releases of the 80's...every songs rocks!! 'Die Hard the Hunter', 'Billy's Got a Gun' and of course 'Photograph' are among the best tracks. 'Too Late for Love' is one of the best ballads ever! Every rock/metal fan should own this album.

|DEFinitely best album from Leppard. Every track is so good and no weaker with other ones. Joe Elliot's voice is incredible and Steamin Clark's guitar rapes(in good way) the air with other guys playing along. My all time top 10 record. It could be possible, that the Rasmus took the F-F-F-Falling from the Foolin' track...

|Awesome! This one and HYSTERIA are their most popular albums. Too bad that Rick Allen lost his left arm after this. He proves that he's a great drummer by drumming with only one arm! OK, I know he had the special drum built just for him. But not other drummer can do that. Speaking about the album, this is a must have classic. Pure hard rocking from beginning to end!

|Gotta agree with you guys. LOVED this CD back in Grade 9. The whole album is just awesome from start to finish. I remember when Gene Simmons was talking about them and he said a number of other musicians disliked them at the time and called them a bunch of kids trying to make it into the Hard Rock business. He went on to say how much he admired and loved Def Leppard. Way to go Gene!!!

|Not my fav album at all. Sounds too rough around the edges, the songs are less melodic than the ones on Hysteria and Adrenalize. But hey, still Def Leppard so you gotta love em.
||Date: March 29, 2004 at 6:28|
|TO Kristian, its not that this album sound too heavy, its hysteria and adrenalize being too soft and poppy. Def leppard has got to have the standard to being labelled as one of the true metal band in history.
||Date: March 29, 2004 at 6:50|
|I AGREE WITH JACK. 'SCREAMING FOR VENGEANCE' BY JUDAS PRIEST AND 'SHOUT AT THE DEVIL' BY MOTLEY CRUE ARE TWO OF THE MORE POPULAR METAL ALBUM COMING OUT IN BASICALLY THE SAME ERA AS 'PYROMANIA'(1982-1983) AND THOSE TWO ALBUM CAN BE CLASSIFY AS BEING A BIT HEAVY, NOT PYROMANIA DEFINITELY!!!
||Date: April 12, 2004 at 13:47|
|Great album, maybe the most solid they ever did. This one really helped a whole generation of hard rock bands to reach great success. No doubts about my favourite track: Rock Of Ages!
|From: Big Papa K
||Date: June 26, 2004 at 1:41|
|Their sound changes from the AC/DC rock of 'High N Dry' to the sometimes robotic sounding rock of this album. Over-produced to the max, but the album still contains some of the catchiest rock songs of the era. Ends a little weak with 'Action Not Words' and 'Comin Under Fire', but the rest are great. 9/10
||Date: August 20, 2004 at 2:29|
|Though not as heavy as their nwobhm counterpart, pyromania,in my opionion is still a heavy metal album. My favourite def leppard album that is much better than the more polished hysteria and adrenalize. Songs like stagefright,die hard the hunter and action,not word are heavy metal tracks while the more melodic photograph and too late for love are awesome ratings:9.5/10
||Date: August 22, 2004 at 5:07|
|Very melodic, but then again who doesn't know that already?! Great album and my personal faves are 'Photograph, 'Too late for love' and 'Comin' under fire'. Killer CD and worth it's appraisal.
||Date: August 24, 2004 at 16:18|
|Okay, this album flat out rocks! Def Leppard could have retired after this recording and still went down in history as masters of early 80's British Metal!
||Date: August 30, 2004 at 18:29|
|Oh No.Not another 80s album,but can anyone deny the brilliance of this melodic hard rock landmark....
||Date: October 29, 2004 at 13:42|
|the best album of time, hard rocking from start to finish, not even one song on this album is ok, there all brilliant, a must buy for any def leppard fan,

|Creo que soy de los pocos que no adoran este disco.Nunca me ha convencido,no s' por qu'...conozco gente que piensa que leppard es,en realidad,el resultado del trabajo de un GENIO como Robert J.'Mutt'Lange,y desde luego aqu' no estuvo tan inspirado.Man'as y gustos aparte(lo mismo podr'a decirse del Slippery de BonJovi y DesmondChild),'Pyromania'es un gran disco de hard rock,buen'simo sonido y coros perfectos,armon'as de lujo.Tal vez le falte gancho,pero est' bastante bien 6/10 email@example.com

||Date: December 11, 2004 at 9:15|
|One of the best records ever, though not as consistent in songwriting as Hysteria or Adrenalize ( try comparing Action not words to Run Riot or Tear it Down)but its still a great record. And it does contain the greatest song ever PHOTOGRAPH, the best Metal or any kind of style song ever. They finally came into their own on this one left behind the fuzzy Ac/DC sound on High n dry and ottn and made a near perfect record.
||Date: December 11, 2004 at 9:21|
|Oh yeah, if you think Screaming for Vengeance and Shout at the devil are actually heavier than Pyromania or anything else DL ever did you're crazy. Shout at the devil is a crappy record except for the title track, and Vince Neil sounds like he's wasted on every track. Screaming for Vengeance is not even loud or heavy enough to be considered Metal, I've heard heavier songs by Boston than anything on SFV, it should be considred piss poor rock. But you can draw you're own opinions.

||Date: March 3, 2005 at 3:25|
|Awesome! But then again, who doesn't know that. 'Photograph' is a benchmark for melodic hard rock, 'Stagefright' is great, 'Too Late for Love' is another pivotal moment in melodic hard rock history, and just stunning. 'Foolin' is an awesome hard rocker, and 'Comin' Under Fire' is an album highlight... but overall you pretty much have yourself a classic album here, for good reason. Awesome disc.
||Date: April 2, 2005 at 13:45|
|ok, we all know this one, great without a doubt, a classic and must be in the top five metal disks of the 80's. I personally go back to High and Dry the past few years, these two are tied in my book as classics!!!
||Date: April 11, 2005 at 6:36|
|Pyromania heavier than shout at the devil n sreaming for vengeance? you've got to be kidding. Pyromania is the most melodic metal album up to this point(1980-1984). If you compre this album to the metal album of that era like twisted sister's you can't stop rock n roll or quiet riot's metal health,this album is way sofer and less rawer. Fuck,any 80's motley crue album is way heavier than any def leppard's album,including highn'dry,perhaps dL heaviest album to date.
||Date: April 11, 2005 at 6:40|
|And pyromania is the album is the reason why hair metal become as poppy as poison,warrant or winger(as good as they are). It set the stage for bon jovi's slippery when wet,man which is just as poppy. But still,pyromania is perhaps the best metal(in my opinion,it's metal) album of the 80's along with metallica's master of puppet,priest's british steel,maiden's number of the beast,van halen's 1984 and merciful fate's don't break the oath.

|This is the album where def leppard starts to get a little poppier and move more distant from their metal roots and towards a more mainstream rock scene. But still,this album is much better than hysteria. This is actually def leppard's most consistent album. Not a single filler is found here. Whether it's the rocking rock till you drop or the anthemic rock of ages or the melodic photograph,this album deliver! The only downside of this album is it seems def leppard are trying do deliver an epic

|which shows in songs like billy got a gun or die hard the hunter as those two tends too drag on too long. Def leppard are not good at doing an epic. They should leave it to fellow metallers like metallica or iron maiden. And technically wise,this album is not bad either. Elliot seems to be in top form,steve and phil form a formidable duo and rick seems like he is doing much better without those awful electrnic drum kit(where they use in dance and new wave music).

|This is the album that turned me into a headbanger and Def Leppard fan for life. My parents got me the cassette tape when it came out and I wore it out. I'd watch MTV over and over to see the videos for Rock Of Ages, Photograph and Foolin'. These guys are my icons.

|Who can argue against this cd being a bonafide classic? Nobody. One of hard rocks finest moments. Essential Listening.

|All I can say is one of the best album ever.
||Date: January 7, 2007 at 16:39|
|What else can one really say or really need to say about an album that is mentioned along side monsters like AC/DC's 'Back In Black' or Metallica's 'Black' album that has not already been said. Songs like 'Photograph', 'Rock Of Ages', 'Too Late For Love', and 'Foolin'' are already legendary and don't need any help from me and there is no filler in sight. So like I said, what could I possibly say? A Melodic rock masterpiece and a must have for the ages!!!
||Date: February 21, 2007 at 14:02|
|This one and Hysteria are two of the best of the genre and arguably of all time. Hysteria is my favorite from them. Essential for any collection. Not much else to say than what has already been said. Plenty of killer songs on here.
||Date: March 6, 2007 at 9:20|
|Sometimes i like Pyromania more than Hysteria,othertimes its just opposite.'Foolin' is my personal fav.'Rock of ages' and 'Photograph' are great gems.I also love:'Billy's Got a Gun'-second best from this record(too bad they didn made the vido for it),'Comin' Under Fire','Die Hard the Hunter' and 'Too Late for Love'.What i dont like on this record is the first song, but overall this is rock classic.If you dont have it you defenitely must buy it.

|In my opinion,this is the best record ever made. It cointains everything I love in music,and that's why Def Leppard is my favourite band. It has great guitar riffs,solos,the most perfect backing vocals since Queen,great choruses and it's hook after hook on every song. All the tracks are perfect,but I would say that "Die Hard The Hunter" and "Billy's Got A Gun" are my favourites. Buy IT!.

|All right, confession time. I actually didn't own a copy of this album until 2005, even though I'd been a fan of the band since '88. It was always one I meant to get, but somehow never got around to it, since you hear the hits just about every day on the radio. So I missed out on the other half of the album. Tunes like the thoroughly kickass "Stagefright" (one of the last songs of its kind the band would do), and "Comin' Under Fire." "Rock Of Ages" and "Photograph" hinted where teh band was headed in the future, but "Rock, Rock," and the brooding "Foolin" still had plenty of balls. Got to say though, when I finally did get this CD, it was anticlimactic, I guess because i'd been hearing so much of it for so long already. And I was never really crazy about the last two tracks.

|Hit and miss this one I'm afraid. The addition of Phil Collins (oops Collen) who is technically very good but lacks that raw, wild edge that Steve and Pete made this album a lot different to the dirst two. The first track is a standard rocker: it doesn't do much for me I'm afraid. Photograph is a good song but the solo by Collen just lacks something which is similar to Stagefright. They both have that over-produced feel. Too Late For Love is another hit and miss track: mostly miss. I end up skipping this one most of the time. Die Hard is a good track and a cruel reminder of how good this album could've been. Ditto with Foolin'. The album ends for me after this. The last four tracks with the exception of Rock of Ages usually go in one ear and out the other I've listened to them countless times but I still can't remember how they go. In conclusion I can't for the life of me understand how this mediocre album with a few good tracks on it can be considered a classic. It's mostly filler. 82

|Only a deaf person wouldn't enjoy this classic 80s rock/metal album, which saw the band striking a near-perfect balance between the heaviness of their early stuff and the commercial pop-metal sound they would adopt on subsequent efforts. While blockbusters like "Hysteria" and "Adrenalize" sported (arguably) catchier songs with bigger hooks and glossier production, there's no denying that the tunes on "Pyromania" featured a restless, edgy, prowling energy that the band has never quite been able to recapture. But regardless of what phase of Def Leppard's career you prefer, there's absolutely no doubt that this CD belongs in any hard rocker's collection like matches and gasoline belong in a firebug's tool kit.

|This is a real milestone in hard rock music. I agree with dokken6008's first comment and also with Vito B. The album opened a door arena hard rock to come and win. I'd also do credit to Robert Lange to help make songs to be gradually intensified with catchy choruses. Even after 30 years it hasn't lost anything I liked at that time. And that's for me an actual mark of quality. 90/100.

|marvellous record with many hits.this album is very interesting cause it s a mix of the first def leppard style (tracks 22.214.171.124.10)and the new def leppard style (tracks 126.96.36.199)who will explore four years later with the mythical "hysteria".

|This is where it all began. Before you shouted at the devil or felt the noize, there was Pyromania. A massive hit for Def veppard and for hard rock in general and, much like Slippery When Wet and the band's own Hysteria would a few later, Pyromania had the ability to draw in people who maybe were not way into hard rock before. A gateway drug. Who in their right mind could resist "Photograph?" It just sounds like summertime, even though it came out in the winter. I'm personally not wild about the last two tracks, but other favorites are "Stagefright," "F-F-F-Foolin'," and "Comin' Under Fire." This is where my mental periment ends. Yes, party-rock/hair-metal/whatever was a thing pre-1983, sort of, and there was Motley Crue and of course Van Halen. But as near as I can figure, from 1980-1982 most of the best Camaro-cruising tunes were from heavy European bands Americanizing their sound like Scorpions and Priest.

|And of course there was AC/DC too, can't leave them out. Kiss Alive!, Van Halen's debut, and Back In Black are the major signposts along this road. Some little towns here and there in between, but come Pyromania, we're in the big city (though not a jungle quite yet).

|Yet Def Leppard hasn't yet lost their marbles still having the Bon Scott-ish vocal style and the whole music just like AC/DC but however a couple of the songs in this album are kinda quirky like the intro at "Die hard the hunter" and "Rock of ages". Also I mention this is like Bryan Adams meets Iron Maiden because some songs are possibly AOR-ish. Anyway this is a nice album but once again however they would later go on making the wimpy and sappy "Soda Steria".
