High 'N' Dry

All Music Guide - Steve Huey
Def Leppard's second album, High 'N' Dry, continues in the vein of the anthemic, working-class hard rock of their debut. While still opting for a controlled musical attack and melodies as big-sounding and stadium-ready as possible, the band opens up its arrangements a bit more on High 'N' Dry, letting the songs breathe and groove while the rhythm section and guitar riffs play off one another. MTV helped break the album in the U.S. with its heavy rotation of the video for the unabashedly dramatic rock ballad "Bringin' on the Heartbreak."

    Overlooked gem

    Def Leppard`s second album and, without a doubt, one of the Sheffield-quintet´s finest. From the sharp riff of opener "Let it go" the album holds its pace, and the set of songs completes each other perfectly. At this stage (1981) the Leppards began to distinguish themselves from the New Wave Of British Heavy Metal-genre. The band headed for a softer, more accessible, sound. Still, there are plenty of rough moments here, so it should be of interest for every collector of the NWOBHM-era. I guess there are a lot of fans who sometimes miss their early days. However, this album is highly recommended.
