Where Pyromania had set the standard for polished, catchy pop-metal, Hysteria only upped the ante. Pyromania's slick, layered Mutt Lange production turned into a painstaking obsession with dense sonic detail on Hysteria, with the result that some critics dismissed the record as a stiff, mechanized pop sellout (perhaps due in part to Rick Allen's new, partially electronic drum kit). But Def Leppard's music had always employed big, anthemic hooks, and few of the pop-metal bands who had hit the charts in the wake of Pyromania could compete with Leppard's sense of craft; certainly none had the pop songwriting savvy to produce seven chart singles from the same album, as the stunningly consistent Hysteria did. Joe Elliott's lyrics owe an obvious debt to his obsession with T. Rex, particularly on the playfully silly anthem "Pour Some Sugar on Me," and the British glam rock tribute "Rocket," while power ballads like "Love Bites" and the title track lack the histrionics or gooey sentimentality of many similar offerings. The strong pop hooks and "perfect"-sounding production of Hysteria may not appeal to die-hard heavy metal fans, but it isn't heavy metal -- it's pop-metal, and arguably the best pop-metal ever recorded. Its blockbuster success helped pave the way for a whole new second wave of hair metal bands, while proving that the late-'80s musical climate could also be very friendly to veteran hard rock acts, a lead many would follow in the next few years.

Seven singles. Seven goddamn singles on this record. That’s insane. And thanks to a very kind and awesome 5th grade teacher who let us listen to cassettes during class… I have these tunes ingrained in my membrane. I “sang” Pour Some Sugar on Me over the phone to my first girlfriend at her request. She dumped me the next day. Okay, the timing here’s not exactly true but it didn’t last and it couldn’t last because when all is said and done, Love Bites. (At least in the 5th grade.)

This is a fun one. Just ridiculous 80s butt rock and soft metal. Tons of great shredders and power ballads. Kinda weird that they are an English band though. They would like they are straight from the sunset strip to me.

In 2022 ‘Hysteria’ feels like the most ridiculous album. It sounds all of the $4.5 million that it reportedly cost to make. It’s shiny, gleaming, glossy, expansive, excessive, bloated, monolithic…over produced, probably 20 minutes too long; and yet I still really like it because despite all my criticisms, the album is a heap of big, dumb fun. It reaches for your jugular, doesn’t let go for the duration, and demands you have a good time, which ultimately you will. Truly ‘Hysteria’ is to hair metal what ‘Thriller’ is to pop.

I really don't want my metal to sound acceptable to my mother. Give me more Slayer and less Bon Jovi. And NWOBHM is the single worst name for a musical movement ever, so it is a no from me.

Underneath the hood this is a quietly insane record - the kitchen sink production, Joe Elliot's nonsensical stream-of-consciousness lyrics, the mere fact that the drum patterns had to be configured for three limbs - wild. Its subsequent success is the cherry on top. If you don't like melodic hair metal, it's an automatic one or two star, right? I do, though - and all the Mutt Lange bells and whistles are still a pleasure to behold.

Honestly this is jam packed full of catchy shit. Everything is pretty big, really well-written, perfectly executed, etc ec. The vocal harmonies in particular are where they really stand out I guess - and the way they meld with the guitar melodies so well. Production is flawless, if a little declawed, but it really is just a crystal clear, perfect little slice of late 80s production. It's openly cheesy as shit, just puts itself right out there celebrating the big hair/sleaze look - it's almost like they knew hipsters in 2021 would go into conniptions in the knowledge they can't stop it existing already. ha. Criticisms: Excitable is a dead set awful song, and Don't Shoot Shotgun isn't far behind. Also, it feels like the whole album could have been one long song - great for cohesion, and might have been amazing at 30min... but 60? They could have trimmed the fat and I probably would've given it a 5/5. That being said, it's been fun to listen to this again in full, haven't heard it beyond the hits in a good 10+ years. 4/5.

Monster hooks, monster riffs, monster drum fills - the excess of the 80s are in full effect here. Whereas I tend to ding albums for sounding dated, somehow I enjoyed this album much more than expected - it's so over-the-top 1987. There's even a catch-all political track that encapsulates all of the "foreign threat" fears of the era - terrorism, civil unrest, Cold War, complete with a cameo from Ronald Reagan himself. A perfectly realized time capsule.

80s hair metal. An expansive sound with massive choruses combined with synth elements. An easy and enjoyable listen, and very 80s. A bit samey though and difficult to remember any particular song, possibly a result of the slick production, within which the actual songs get a bit lost. 3.5/5

It’s the standard later 80’s hair/stadium rock music. It’s fairly uneventful and sounds the same as approximately 100 other rock bands from the time. Thankfully the 80’s finally put an end to the infatuation of band members trying to look and sound overtly feminine more than actually producing interesting music. The only song on this album that stands out from the rest is Love Bites...perhaps it being the only ballad and therefore different to the rest enhances it’s appeal but I genuinely think it’s still a standalone decent effort. Anyhoo...yawn. NEXT!

Pop trying to be metal. I understand why it was popular in its day; tough dudes felt like they could like a "rock" band that still got ladies to shake it. Song writing is solid pop writing and production is over layered and over compressed....but I guess that became the iconic def leppard sound. "Run Riot" had interesting time changes between straight and half time, and the verse also had an interesting odd meter time signature thrown in every 4 bars or so.

Massively clichéd, ludicrous lyrics, teenage hair metal, pointless forgettable solos and generally indistinguishable from a dozen other 1980s middle of the road rock bands, (in this case from Sheffield but trying to sound like Americans). It's OK in small doses, just letting it wash over, but nothing stands out or grabs my attention; the songs aren't strong enough to transcend the limitations of the genre. Plastic rock.

First listen, but I have long hated "Pour Some Sugar On Me," so this album had an uphill battle to fight. There is obvious craft and passion on display here, but it is not to my taste at all. The polished, squeaky-clean production and the perpetually-horny lyrics just don't jive. There is some enjoyment to be had with catchy melodies and some very nice vocal harmonies. Highlights: "Armageddon It," "Run Riot," "Hysteria," and the intro to "Gods of War".

I have a weird relationship with rock music. The majority of my favorite albums EVER belong to rock and its subgenres. I love rock!! However, a lot of the biggest rock bands ever are bands I don't enjoy in the slightest. When you say you like rock, a lot of people think of these arena bands from the 80s, like Def Leppard or Bon Jovi. But this is EXACTLY what I DON'T mean when I say I love rock. These 80s pop hair-metal bands do not sound good. The way they overproduce their music is sickening; it's really too much. It's irritatingly poppy. The music is engineered to be sickeningly cheesy and sweet. These bands are obsessed with their cool image more than anything, and it shows. Every single song is a painfully cliché and cringeworthy "anthem", and they're all indistinguishable from the others. The lyrics are uninspired. The formula is so overdone here. It's exactly like Halloween candy: a piece of candy is fine once in a while, but once you grow out of adolescence, the thought of eating a bucket full of candy in one night makes you want to vomit. This album is a bucket full of cheap, over-processed junk candy, and it was really hard to enjoy more than a minute of it, let alone a whole hour of it.

I'm really hating it and I don't think I'll finish it. This shit is cringey as hell. Some of the guitar work is good though. Hair metal was a mistake and I don't think it's OK. animal is almost not bad. it's growing on me and i want it to stop, love bites.. pour some sucks. Not good overall, maybe influenced some good music.

45. Hysteria - Def Leppard 12 tracks. "Lighter" than their previous albums, this is perfect for me. What they went through during the recording process is astonishing & only serves to make it more significant. One of my favourite albums as an adult, (ignored by younger me). 5/5

I'm very critical of the glam / hair metal movement due to the overcommercialization and generic nature of the songs. I would get so bored scrolling through the Billboard of the 80s and early 90s and hearing formulaic trash. This makes it all the more exciting when you have a quality band that deserves its fame and notoriety, and you start to understand how the genre became so big. Hysteria is Def Leppard's best effort (Pyromania in an assured second), and it stands alongside Van Halen's 1984 and GnR's Appetite as the genre's best albums that predominate rock radio. The production and vocal delivery are top of the notch. It's loud and impressive, never too busy, but still explosive in nature to get me moving. No bad songs, but certainly several weaker tracks. Despite that, the entire side is absolutely perfect. Banger after banger, which is especially impressive considering that goes on for a half hour. Even the mandatory glam metal ballad here "Love Bites" (or is it "Hysteria"?) is incredible. Honestly, the only improvement I could think of is cutting off 2 or 3 songs near the end, which isn't even to justify me not giving it a perfect score.

Such a good album. If only for Animal which is a masterpiece. Most if my knowledge of Def Leppard (and this album) comes from the Classic Album episode about it where they walk through the making, Rick Allen and his drumming, and how they thought they messed up the order they put out the singles on this one. Really fascinating stuff and I’m definitely going to be watching that again after hearing the album through (Classic Albums I have found is free on TubiTV)

Hi- Women, Rocket, Love Bites, Pour Some Sugar On Me, Armageddon It, Hysteria Lo- Gods of War Peak hair metal, fantastically constructed, perfectly executed, excellent in every way. The only reason I didn't enjoy Gods of War is that it really doesn't jive well with the energy of the rest of the album, but even still it isn't a bad track, it's just the rest of the album is so strong.

Tuve hace muchos años mi época de escuchar Def Leppard y les agarré mucho gusto. Entiendo que en su momento los fans que los conocieron haciendo metal en sus dos primeros discos los hayan odiado un poco cuando lanzaron Hysteria y quizá hasta abandonado por otras bandas, pero visto en retrospectiva este disco es una genialidada: Tomas una banda que hace cosas pesadas y pules el sonido para que alcance a mucho más público, les arreglas un poquito el look para que le gusten a las mujeres, y PUM tienes un disco que rompe records de ventas. Y la neta es que es muy buen disco. No hay rato aburrido porque hasta las baladas pedorras están muy bien hechas y tienen momentos chidos. Mis favoritas creo que son Hysteria, Pour Some Sugar On Me y Animal.

This gets 5 stars because of so many great memories associated with when this album came out. They released 7(!) singles: all of which got a ton of radio airplay. But I do have to say that the layered harmonies, and the heavy production, haven't aged very well.

If I had the power to delete one song from the world's consciousness and ensure it had never been made, Pour Some Sugar On Me would be on the shortlist. So, I entered this one with some trepidation. There are certainly some songs where you have to turn your brain off in order to enjoy it; "Don't Shoot Shot Gun" is an easy target, but see also Armageddon It. The lyrics are so inane they almost ruin an incredible sounding song. That's the thing, though - outside of the sugar song, it sounds amazing. A great album for background listening. I'm glad that this project forced me to take another look at this one. Best track: Gods of War

Side one of this album is damn near untouchable. If they moved the title track to after "Gods of War" and then ended the album, it's a contender for 5 stars. But it's just too long, with few of the later songs not standing out too much. Overall though, very good.

Back in the day I invented a subgenre for Def Leppard and Van Halen: they were walkman metal. I sensed that, having incorporated synths, they sounded great on tape and with headphones on. But so does Run DMC's Raising Hell. To this day I prefer listening to these albums on tape.  Ok, it's all too cheesy, but then again, that's the point and you know what you are in for.

I used to lump hair metal in with nu metal and pop punk for lame mainstream/pop styles of rock that I had no use for. And while there have been exceptions for all three, I’ve gravitated more towards glam metal towards the other two. There’s no pretension in most of these bands, just good times and solid hooks. That said, it took a while for me to get into Hysteria the album. I much preferred the Lep’s harder rocking earlier stuff, and while I still do, I dig most of this now. This is 80’s production excess at its highest caliber, and the levels Mutt Lange went to is insane. The title track is especially a favorite, probably their best song. I feel like Billy Corgan has spent his entire career trying to write a melody like this, but hasn’t come close. B

If you're going to pick a Def Leppard album that's 'important', the breakout "Pyromania" is the way to go - the # of hits on this one is as much a function of the momentum that came form Pyromania as it is the songs themselves - this one comes off more as watered-down glam metal/hairband.

Det här är fucking bra! Jag upplever det som att det är precis lagom mängd "disco-influens" när det blir blandat med rocken, oftast iaf, ibland blir det för mycket åt det hållet. Påminner om Aerosmith på många plan. Sedan var det också kul att lyssna på "Pour some sugar on me" med intention att faktiskt lyssna på låten. Jag kanske inbillar mig men den känns lite som ett meme, känslan är att jag sett den användas på ett komiskt sätt i filmer och serier. Men som låt är den faktiskt inte alls dålig. Bäst: "Rocket"

First time I've ever listened to an album by Def Leppard and I don't think I (consciously) knew any of the songs yet. But quite possibly they went into one ear and out the other. The songwriting and execution are decent enough. But the whole thing is just so cookie-cutter hard rock / accessible new wave of british heavy metal. I may not have heard these specific songs yet, but I've heard songs EXACTLY like these soooo many times. It just sounds like standard unobjectionable rock bar background music. As such, I don't mind it, but I absolutely can't get excited about it either and already forgot the songs by now.

Def Leppard attempts to re-create Thriller, somehow creates album where the deep cuts are better than the singles. It’s amazing how they tried to make every track a single calibre song yet the ones actually released as a single somehow manage to be the weak tracks on the album. (Well in saying that, one or two of them are solid).

If you haven't heard at least half of these songs, you've never turned on a classic rock radio station before. These songs are widely played in the US to this day, and I would be lying if I said I'm not burnt out on "Pour Some Sugar On Me" or "Love Bites." They're still bangers, and Def Leppard certainly accomplished their goal of creating an album full of hits, but after being acquainted with this record for so long I think the variety in their sound becomes thin. The 62 minute duration doesn't help either, it kind of stretches out the record more than necessary. It would have been better if they just straight up cut "Women" out and started with "Rocket", and I would say "Don't Shoot Shot Gun" is the weakest track on the record that could be cut. Maybe rearranging the track list on a playlist could spruce it up too. I never listened to "Gods of War" before this listen, and it's the sleeper. Super cool song. Overall though, this is still a fun and enjoyable album. In terms of 80's rock, it's truly different from a lot of sounds of the time due to the use of the Rockman amp and drum samples. The guitar parts weren't played to have flashy rifs, they were crafted to create beautiful harmonies. The digital audio bits and "robot-like" sounds just add another cool layer. It shows its age by trying to showoff a "sound of the future," but it still holds up. Songs I Knew: Animal, Love Bites, Pour Some Sugar On Me, Armageddon It, Hysteria Favorite Song: Armageddon It Honorable Mention: Gods of War Least Favorite: Don't Shoot Shot Gun

Hopefully this is the only time I have to make this joke throughout this entire experience: What has 9 arms and sucks? Def Leppard. Named for the only living thing on the planet that can stand to listen to all 60 minutes of this album, the band is Def Leppard, but their fans are Blind Sheep. Okay - I'm done. In all seriousness, They're pretty cool. I will never really understand what separates them from other bands (like Poison) that did the exact same shit during the 80s. Maybe it's just that their songs are way longer? Not better, just longer? Anyhoo, this is - by far - their best album. The hits just keep coming. Is it "good"? I don't know. Is it fun to listen to? For sure.

Before all of this really overblown reverse-gated reverb, there was the Def Leppard that made "On Through The Night." Back when they had an even-number of arms. This isn't my way of disparaging Hysteria. Rather, I think Def Leppard's pre-fame records buttress the feeble pure pop-metal sheen of a record like Hysteria. Like, Metallica made three shred records and then they made the Black Album. You can hate on the black album (which I think I did earlier in this list), but where does a band go when they've mastered one genre. Hopefully somewhere. In the case of Def Leppard, that place was the top of the charts. There are worse places to be. But I think "Pour Some Sugar on Me" is a stupid song. I don't like that the 80s metal movement ended in a bunch of songs that had funny punchline choruses. Really tough to pick a rating for this record. I guess I'll be charitable and pick 3 instead of two. Really rounding up there. But I am because of the aforementioned history of this band, as well as the fact that this record seems to have taken the genre as far is it would ever go before Nirvana came and killed this bullshit. Also, Bon Jovi is better.

Absolutely ridiculous pop metal record - but it does what it sets out to do with a level of meticulous attention to detail that helps set it apart somewhat. I've got to admire, or at least gawk at, just how seriously everyone involved seems to take such a fundamentally goofy exercise. I mean, "Pour Some Sugar on Me" is undeniably fun. As with the whole record, don't look too closely at the lyrics. Favourite groaner? "Are you getting it? I'm Armageddon it." No wonder so many dads go crazy for this band. My biggest complaint is the length. This album did not to be more than 35 minutes and would, I think, be much stronger with a little trimming (looking at you "Excitable"). This one's gonna mess up my algorithm, isn't it? Favourite song: "Pour Some Sugar on Me" Rating: 2.5/5

I’m not really a fan of metal music so I can’t really add much in terms of a review. I do feel that this is a fairly good album. There are no filler tracks and all the songs appear to be lyrically and instrumentally strong. However as I don’t really enjoy the genre, I don’t really think very highly of it. I did however enjoy ‘Armegeddon’.

Pour ceux qui se demanderaient, un leppard est un animal hybride né de l'union d'une guéparde et d'un léopard. Le comportement du leppard est principalement caractérisé par de longues crises d'hystérie se traduisant souvent par des troubles de la parole ou de la sensibilité. Le groupe Def Leppard a parfaitement su traiter ce sujet souvent passé sous silence dans cet album.

Certainly not bad for a hair metal album. As I've often found with these sorts of albums, you'll have a small number of terrific songs, and then a large amount of filler that tends to blur together. I concede that the 'filler' on this album is of a higher quality, but still, very few tracks standing out to me beyond the ones you'd expect, e.g. "Pour Some Sugar on Me" and "Hysteria".

Is that genre and that time one that generated era defining works, probably but I don't think this album is one of them.

Never understood the appeal to Def Leppard. Sure, their music was popular during it's first wave when I was a youth, but I never got into them because I couldn't stand this brand of mainstream, radio-friendly, light-weight wannabee hair metal. There are guys around my age that still listen to DF because it reminds them of their youth and they can't "relate" to newer music. This is almost 35 years ago! Move on, there's lots of way better music in the three and a half decades that followed.

Generic 80s Rawk. A lot of screaming about stuff, way too much synth, and fake drum sounds (obviously drummer only has one arm so can't blame him for that but could have dialed back the compression) Guitar playing, which is normally the best part of hair metal, is so so. Overall, would prefer to be a deaf leopard than to listen one.

I was not expecting this album to sound so spectacular. I'm familiar with Def Leppard's big hits, and I'm not completely confident in their songwriting abilities, but the producing really elevates this album into something that's quite palatable and fun throughout. Pop metal can be so joyous and goofy, and Hysteria came close to making me turning my brain off and making me a believer. The T. Rex influence here is palpable.

These songs don't need to be 5-6 minutes long. This album doesn't need to be an hour long. An hour of glam rock gets so repetitive that it becomes genuine torture and every flaw becomes more pronounced (The cheesy lyrics, weird song structures, overproduction..) Def Leppard, KISS, AC/DC, Mötley Crue, Bon Jovi... it's all the same, really. This is what people who exclusively listen to pop and hip-hop (nothing wrong with that) think all rock is like, because they heard it in their dad's car once. Glam rock is such an odd genre.

Best Song: Run Riot. Only because around the three minute mark there is a brief guitar solo that reminds you that music can be fun and interesting. Worst Song: Love Bites. Why this one over the dozen other nearly identical soulless entries? I don't know. They're all bad. Overall: This is a low water mark in rock music history. Def Leppard lacks the edge of other hair metal bands like Motley Crue, the vocal talent of groups like Boston who could actually pull off these kind of ballads, and the passion of literally any other band. The instrumentation is uninteresting. The vocals sound like sick cats stage whispering from the far end of a wind tunnel. The lyrics are so dumb they feel like parodies. "Don't Shoot Shot Gun"? Kill me.
