Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Tom Graves
The jury may still be out on Adrenalize, but with the band's misfortunes guitarist Steve Clark died of a drug overdose, they can be forgiven for slipping a bit after the mega-success of Hysteria. That's not to dismiss Adrenalize, however, which still has a heaping helping of Leppard's patented Brit-pop crash-and-burn fusion.

    Good Followup

    Following the success of Hysteria would be nearly impossible for the band. But they made a good attempt on this album. Bringing back the pop-hard rock sound that they capitalized on the previous album. Strong standouts on the album include the ballad Have You Ever Needed Someone So Bad, and the rocking, Let's Get Rocked. Not as good as the previous album but one that should be looked at neverless.

    Adrenalize... another decent one from Leppard

    The album itself is classic Leppard, crunchy guitars and great background vocals singing in harmony through the chorus. A good effort by the boys except that better albums would be on the way, down the road. I must make one correction to Mr. Graves idiotic review above - Steve Clark did NOT die as a result of a drug overdose. He had been trying to quit drinking and was on medication ubder a physician's supervision. He died in his sleep after his body gave out from the years of abuse he gave his body. His heart had worked too hard for too long and just stopped. He did not OD. Mr. Graves would do well to check his sources and make sure he has the correct information before submitting it to a web site that will be viewed by millions. Mr. Clark's girlfriend at the time of his passing explained it clearly in a VH-1 documentary only a few years ago.

    SUCESS AT A PRICE.....

    Adversity seems to go hand in hand with the sucess of Def Leppard. For those who don't care for their style of music for whatever reason would have to admit that they respect them for their endurance to weather the storm and push on. But as for this project which is certainly one of my favorites the obvious professionalism and gift of making great music is prevalent from beginning to end, they are truly one of Rock's finest band, and Talented ARTIST. A wonderful follow up to Hysteria. Def Leppard, one of the Greatest rock band of all time......
