2-0 out of 5 stars Boring and tedious...
Producer Kevin Shirley accepts the fact that Steve Harris calls all the cards in the band and we all testified the "high" production values utilized by Steve Harris when he produced the band in "X-Factor" and "Virutal XI"... So, since "Brave New World" produciton is muddled, really bad and it never improves.
5-0 out of 5 stars Wow
I was hoping for a good return by the veterns. I was pleased and beyond. Dance of Death was an average album. It had a few moments but nothing compared to this cd. The rich melodies and twin guitar use is awesome.Yes the production isn't as clean as it could be. But that didn't hamper it to much for me. I know people are going to compare this to anything they have done in the past and say that (killers, number of the beast 7 son ..etc) is better. Well the 80's was the metal age, but old bands can still write good material. True some of it might get recycled but isn't that what all music becomes? Riff's are recycled or manipulated a little.

Editorial Review

Also known as the "rune" album or Zoso because of the medieval symbols adorning the inner sleeve, Led Zeppelin's fourth album, released in 1971, turned them from mere superstars into giant behemoths of the rock world. On tracks like "Black Dog," "Misty Mountain Hop," and "Rock and Roll," the combination of Robert Plant's banshee wails and Jimmy Page's frenetic guitar playing forever altered the stylistic bent of hard rock music. And the foreboding "When the Levee Breaks" demonstrated that Zeppelin could indeed play the blues fairly straight if they so desired. Still, everything here ultimately took a back seat to the album's (and, ultimately, the band's) magnum opus--the expertly constructed and deftly executed classic, "Stairway to Heaven." Read more

Music, like any other form of art, is subjective. It is influenced by several factors including, but not limited to, the social and psychological influences of each listener. So all the 'qualified' critics who have decided to post 'nasty' reviews about this cd and the band, are entitled to do so. But in doing so, please validate your negative comments with 'mature' critique. This would carry more weight in deterring potential buyers from purchasing this, or any other cd (if that is your intention).
5-0 out of 5 stars Led Zeppelin - 'Led Zeppelin IV' (Atlantic/WEA)
Review no.930.Originally released to a very deserving and loving public in 1971,as this was of course Zeppelin's fourth record.Eight tracks here,EACH and every one a masterpiece in it's OWN right.Sure,after the first hundred or so times you hear "Black Dog" and "Rock And Roll",they may grow a tad thin,but tunes that N-E-V-E-R grow stale are "Battle Of Evermore",probably FM radio's most requested song of all time "Stairway To Heaven","Four Sticks" and the unforgetable "When The Levee Breaks"(I've heard radio staions actually play this cut DURING heavy rainstorms,ha-ha!).Anyone who has heard/owns a copy of this CD reissue can tell you that LZ-'IV' is both a music AS well as lyrical classic.Highly recommended.

1-0 out of 5 stars Why are they so overrated????????????????
Led Zeppelin were simply the most overrated band of all time who were just as bad as NIRVANA and ACDC. They only made about a decent song in "Stairway To Heaven". Rest of the songs just STINK!!! Plant sounds more like a big monkey than a real singer and can't sing at all, HE JUST SCREAMS. Like good singers??????? I recommend go with Foreigner, Dire Straits who were equally the greatest bands with the greatest singers in LOU GRAMM, and MARK KNOPFLER. They are a billion times better than LED ZEPPELIN. Don't listen to the five star reviewers of this page, avoid this piece of junk and go with Foreigner insted. They are legends, not ZEPPELIN!!! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Riff rock had been what Jimmy Page's former band, the Yardbirds, were all about, and on Led Zeppelin's second album, released, like its predecessor, in 1969, the inventive guitarist demonstrated that he'd indeed learned his lessons well. Witness "Whole Lotta Love," a woozy epic based on one simple, head-banging-friendly guitar riff. Or the mock-dramatic "Heartbreaker," propelled by far more intricate but similarly effective note squashing. Between Page's sonic wizardry, John Bonham beating his drums into submission ("Moby Dick"), and the juice running down Robert Plant's leg ("The Lemon Song"), Led Zeppelin here just about succeeded in raising rock & roll excess to an art form.

5-0 out of 5 stars Led Zeppelin's sophomore effort proves they were no fluke!
Led Zeppelin's second album Led Zeppelin II was released in October of 1969.
3-0 out of 5 stars Whole Lotta Riffs
Led Zep II is an innovative studio album with Page & Jones at the top of their studio wizardry. The album kicks off with the famous redundant Whole Lotta Love riff and continues through the over indulgent psycedelic bridge one is truly glad when this song ends. What is & What Should Never Be is definitely the album highlight with Zep firing on all cylinders. The bluesy Lemon Song and the poppy Thank You follows. The old war horse combo Heartbreaker/Living Loving Maid keep the album rocking and Page seems like he has riffs to burn. From here the album cools off with Plant's Hobbit influenced wispy Ramble On. the lame space filler Moby Dick instumental follows. The album closes with another highlight "Bring it On Home" a rockin blues tribute. Although Zep's creativity showed this album the music sounds lifted like a Lenny Kravitz album.

5-0 out of 5 stars Its a Classic
This album is one of the least talked about album but one of their most famous.With songs Like Whole Lotta Love and Heartbreaker its already worth buying but with other songs like moby dick and livin lovin maid (she's just a woman) it is an even better album.so do yourself a favor and buy this album. ...

Editorial Review

As it turned out, Led Zeppelin's infamous 1969 debut album was indicative of the decade to come--one that, fittingly, this band helped define with its decadently exaggerated, bowdlerized blues-rock. In shrieker Robert Plant, ex-Yardbird Jimmy Page found a vocalist who could match his guitar pyrotechnics, and the band pounded out its music with swaggering ferocity and Richter-scale-worthy volume. Pumping up blues classics such as Otis Rush's "I Can't Quit You Baby" and Howlin' Wolf's "How Many More Times" into near-cartoon parodies, the band also hinted at things to come with the manic "Communication Breakdown" and the lumbering set stopper "Dazed and Confused."

A blues album with intense sound! Zep really redefined Rock in the late 60's and set the standard in the 70's. This marking their debut could have not been any better or made more of an impact. Bonham beats the drums into near submission from the get go and the rest of the boys do their thing. A true treasure to any rock library.

5-0 out of 5 stars They dont make good music like this anymore!
When queen was in their prime, I was a young child. I do have memories of hearing some of their more popular songs on the radio. Under Pressure and Another one Bites The Dust for example, are songs I heard over and over again. Now that im a bit older, I appreciate this bands musical contributions even more. Most of the songs on disc 2 seem to be 80's trash. Their 70's material in my opinion is just light years better then their 80's stuff. Although I will say that I think "Who Wants To Live Forever" is an exception. I first heard this song while watching Highlander in 1985. That and "Under Pressure" are definitely the gems of disc 2.

5-0 out of 5 stars 'Cause it's Queen ...
OK, let's get this straight ... some younger fans tuned into Queen in the 80's and that's ok, but by then many original fans had tuned out and were busy making a living to keep up with all the trash that came out in that decade.
5-0 out of 5 stars Rediscover this historic band
I had been a casual Queen fan most of my life - well, ever since Wayne's World made Bohemian Rhapsody a hit. At the time, I got myself a copy of "A Night At The Opera," and have enjoyed it in the years since. (In fact, I recommend it as a companion to this greatest hits collection.)

Queen brought a whole new meaning to the phrase over the top. While rock & roll flamboyance stretched back at least as far as Little Richard, Freddie Mercury continued to camp it up, taking little seriously and smirking at the music's growing pretensions while partaking in them no small bit. Many of the band's singles hold up extremely well, such as "Killer Queen" and "You're My Best Friend". The quartet's canny sense of melody and sophisticated vocal harmonies--not to mention Mercury's raised eyebrow--have traveled well through the years. Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars I Honestly Don't Understand Why This Band is So Loved
I just don't like Queen. Their songs never fail to bore me and/or worse; the songs in their catalogue are too pretentious and way too overdone. They are way, way, overplayed also. I get very strong allergic reactions every time I hear "Bohemian Rhapsody" on the radio and the only cure is switching the radio station fast. Ironically, "Bohemian Rhapsody" isn't even on this compilation, which is odd, but I don't have time to worry about it. Also, by the age of three weeks old, every being on Earth has heard "We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions" at least 150 times. "Another One Bites the Dust" is a boring song in which not enough happens, while "Killer Queen" is a sappy vocal song. I like Queen's "Somebody to Love" but that's about it.
1-0 out of 5 stars ..AND THIS IS A ROCK BAND?
Has any band ever aspired to be thought of in the same breath as Led Zep or Deep Purple than Queen? It is debatable apart from the first album and the odd single that they could be classed as a rock band ( i hold up 'radio gaga' for proof probably one of the most trite songs in musical history or since, well 'fat bottomed girls')) In fact Queen were nothing if not a pompous mish mash of rock and pop and failing on all counts all with the help of Roy Thomas Baker who suceeded in over producing everything he twiddled his knobs on (check out Lone Star's first album) Brian May plays the same guitar solo throughout. He claims the late great Rory Gallagher as an influence-(can't see it myself)and Freddie Mercury just wanted to be an opera singer (i want to break free is his absolute nadir) you get an attempt at rockabilly (crazy little thing called love) and every drummers standard party peice (we will rock you)alongside a host of other radio friendly drivel. Come on never has a band had such pretensions as Queen. They never were sure what they wanted to be and if there aspirations were to be considered one of the all time greats like Purple or Zeppelin then they and there mass of devotees were sadly dissapointed) How they became so massive is a mystery as much as why INXS were popular.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great companion to "Classic Queen"
First of all, I would like to preface this about all the complaints that Bohemian Rhapsody and Under Pressure are not here....that's right, it's because they're on "Classic Queen", which also was released in 1992 (and actually sold more initially).If you buy the two cd's together, you'll GET IT. Both collections are great and you need both to have the complete Queen picture. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Solid, Underrated CD in the Zeppelin catalog
This album gets overlooked a lot when considering Led Zeppelin's greatest artistic achievements. True, Led Zeppelin IV is the standard by which hard rock recordings are judged, but this album is a wonderful sampling of what Led Zeppelin could do with various music styles and sounds. "The Song Remains the Same" is aptly titled, as it is a continuation of the hard rock for which Page, Plant, and company are justly celebrated.
5-0 out of 5 stars Led Zeppelin - 'Houses Of The Holy' (Atlantic/WEA)
Review no.262.Originally released in 1973,this was Zeppelin's fifth record.TALK about your 'album rock' classic.As I've heard a few Zeppelin supposed die-hards put down 'Houses...',this is no doubt one of their best works,at least I've always thought so.Every single one of the eight cuts here are considered to be sacred (if you'd call it that)to most Zep fans,late night radio listeners and old time hard rockers. From "The Song Remains The Same" to the melodic "Rain Song" to the beautifully written and played "Over The Hills And Far Away". Also remember in my teens,partying until wee hours in the morning to "No Quarter" and "the Ocean". Simply a MUST-have.

Houses of the holy follows the same path as Led Zeppelin 4, however the approach is looser and much more relaxed.

5-0 out of 5 stars improves with time
This was a critically panned album when it first came out. Led Zep fans showed disappointment b/c this was much more diverse and challenging then the previously revved up blues and folk songs. Over time, the brilliance to this challenging album has fully emerged. 5-0 out of 5 stars Save me a slice
There is no greater impediment to the pursuit of happiness than a classic rock radio station but the other night I heard Kashmir on 104.3 FM and was reminded all over again of the truth of Otto's last words after he was swept out to sea. If this song isn't a massive inexorable force that advances irresistibly and crushes whatever is in its path I'll eat my copy of Webster's Seventh New Collegiate Dictionary. Kashmir is rightly celebrated for Jimmy Page's innovative chord progression guitar riff, not to mention that whole Asian/Arabic rhythm thing, but for me there's only one King of K Town and that man would be a maharajah named Peachey Carnehan. I mean Daniel Dravot. No wait, I mean John Henry Bonham. If there's a better example of controlled jackhammer percussion I'd like to hear it. Bonzo's all over the rest of this big-rig double album too and from Custard Pie to Sick Again the drummer from Redditch will embiggen your woofers and boggle your tweeters. Plant's no slouch here either but I guess that goes without saying. That's a good movie too though isn't it, The Man Who Would Be King? A brilliant performance by Michael Caine and almost certainly the best use of the word "trousers" in the history of motion pictures. I think if Rudyard Kipling were alive today he'd smoke Winston 100s, cycle a rusty old bicycle named Chivers and find a choice spot in his regular rotation for Physical Graffiti.

5-0 out of 5 stars Vastly Underrated Masterpiece
Led Zeppelin, more than almost any other band, was a band that wasn't about individual songs, but entire albums.Each one of their albums tends to have a distinctive tone that sets it apart from the others.Shallow listeners perhaps didn't appreciate the direction Zeppelin had taken with this album, and while yes, it is true that the two blistering hard rockers here, Immigrant Song and Out On the Tiles, have nowhere near the depth of I and II's epic masterpieces, they are still adequate.And an "adequate" piece by Zeppelin standards is almost any other rock band's magnum opus.

It's always been my worry that when Maiden recycles their riffs, they will recycle from all the songs I really don't like.Sure, other bands do that too and sometimes, they even get away with it.Maiden's been doing it for years and yet, it seems to work.For the record, Dance of Death is my favorite album.Brave New World was good too but older albums like Piece of Mind and Number of the Beast outshine it, but not by that much.
5-0 out of 5 stars Inching closer to the classics
I have been a Maiden fan since high school, when I saw them on the "Powerslave" tour in 1985. Now that I've established my old-school credentials, I can say that I have never found a subsequent Maiden album to match that one. "Somewhere In Time" and "Seventh Son" both seemed too electronic (although I liked "Seventh" much better), and from that point on I lost interest in the band for a while. The Blaze Blakely years in particular were a travesty.

Editorial Review

While many of their peers were abandoning '70s metal and arena rock to hop the punk/new wave bandwagon, Def Leppard smartly stripped the earlier era's music of its excesses, bolstered it with energetic, pop-savvy hooks and quickly found itself the vanguard of the UK's new metal revival and one of the '80s most spectacularly successful rock acts. The first disc of this 35-track, two-and-a-half hour double-disc retrospective focuses on the familiar hits of their early MTV, platinum-selling prime, though the inclusion of the video edit/remixes of "Pour Some Sugar On Me" and "Rocket" attempts to cast them in a more club-friendly contemporary groove. But the grittier second disc showcases some of the early, overlooked roots of Read more

This is definitely one of the best "Greatest Hits/Best Of" collections around, It covers Leppard's entire career and only has a few glaring omissions. If you are new to Def Leppard, this is a good place to start since it has their biggest hits and most of the best songs from all of their releases. If you have been a fan for a long time, it's nice to have this much great music on two discs.

4-0 out of 5 stars Do you like the 80's? One Disc or two?
This double disc best of is like having a Def Lep super hits jukebox. Thirty four tracks, rather neatly divided into two discs, packed to the gills and a nifty liner book with band members commenting on the songs (personal favorite, "Slang" was about phone sex!). This twin CD renders the old "Vault" superfluous.

I first heard about Def Leppard back in the day when I used to read a music paper from England called Melody Maker. It used to cost 50 cents and that was my music bible back then. I got to see them on their first American tour opening up for AC/DC and they were pretty good for a young band. This is a good compilation but where's WASTED or ROCKS OFF or ROCK BRIGADE from the first CD? That CD is not nearly as polished as their later stuff but it rocked, had a nice raw sound to it that I liked. It would have nice to include those songs here. Oh well.

5-0 out of 5 stars A.Y. "toneage," you're an idiot.
You say all thrash metal bands sound the same (and untalented) but praise horrid s*** like Slipknot, Killswitch Engage, Taproot, Korn, and other horrid nu-metal bands.Plus, you went to the Family Values tour, what a loser!!Your name is really stupid, be more creative.Go back to playing "beefwhistle boogie" with Jonathon Davis and your fellow ICP/nu-metal loving wiggers, no one likes you.
5-0 out of 5 stars Not Overrated - A Rock & Roll Classic
Don't believe anyone who tells you that this album is overrated.Black Sabbath are considered the founding fathers of heavy metal for a reason.The truth is, no other band was writing anything this heavy back in 1971.Led Zeppelin are a better band (in my opinion) and definitely influenced heavy music more as a whole, but Tony Iommi's style of riffing, and the band's gloomy, slow and relatively straightfoward style inspired legions of fans and musicians.Just because there are better albums out there (which there are) doesn't mean that Paranoid isn't a five-star, undisputed classic album well worthy of the recognition it deserves.
2-0 out of 5 stars Revisionist history.
Black Sabbath didn't start metal, despite what legions of morns will tell you. Sabbath's self-titled and *Paranoid* are the albums that people generally think created heavy metal but they are so wrong, and need to pull their heads out of the sand. All they did was have the guitarist play down-tuned guitar so it would sound "eviler", gimme a break. There were plenty of bands around that time that were light years ahead of these guys. If you want to hear the first "metal" album, go listen to Deep Purple's "In Rock" album and tell me that it is not the blue print for all future metal bands. More future metal (in the late 70's-80's) bands were trying to sound like Zeppelin or Purple rather then these idiots from Birminham.

5-0 out of 5 stars All Led Zeppelin, All the Time
This is BY FAR the best Led Zeppelin boxed set out there.I wanted to have all the Led Zeppelin albums, but I didn't want to spend a fortune on 3 different box sets.This set has all 10 studio albums, and they are digitally remastered.The sound is great (I'm assuming they're better than the originals).My only minor complaint would have to be about the packaging.The actual box and cases aren't crappy or anything like that, but I would have liked to see the CD's with the original album art.However, at the same time I guess its nice to have all 10 albums numbered from 1-10 if that is your cup of tea.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great if you like classic rock
Ok, so some of you think that Led Zeppelin is overrated and some of you think that they are the greatest. What is more important is that Led Zeppelin is a style of their own and as a fan I can say that if you get into Led Zeppelin's style then you should be able to get into all of their albums even though the latter may not be as good as the first several albums. The band is very consistant, I've listened to their albums from I to Coda countless times and somtimes going back to particular ones and I can Never get enough because I love this kind of music. Most of us know that Led Zeppelin is one of the greatest classic rock bands and some would say the greatest(including myself). So, if you are into classic rock and are considering getting this box set I would recommend it and if youre not into this type of music maybe not, you can just write a review like the other guys.

5-0 out of 5 stars ONE OF THE GREATEST BOX SETS EVER
I FIND IT REALLY FUNNY THAT LED ZEPPELIN ARE BEING REVIEWED BY PEOPLE WHO LIKE LOUSY R&B AND SOUL MUSIC AND THEN PROCEED TO CALL THIS GREAT BAND OVER RATED.I WANT TO REMIND THESE REVIEWERS THAT THIS A FORUM FOR REVIEWING A HARD ROCK BAND AND NOT SOME HORRIBLE R&B BAND FROM MOTOWN RECORDS.ANYWAYS LED ZEPPELIN ARE THE GREATEST ROCK BAND THAT EVER MADE MUSIC AND I WOULD RATE EACH OF THEIR ALBUMS TILL IN THROUGH THE OUT DOOR 5 STARS WITHOUT HESITATION.THIS BOX SET CONTAINS AN EXCELLENT OVERVIEW OF THEIR MUSIC.GET THIS RIGHT AWAY.

Editorial Review

Here are the original monsters of rock in all their epic, bombastic glory. The Who may have had more decibels (a dubious distinction), but no band took hard rock higher into the stratosphere than the Zep did with their cosmic mixture of deep blues, gothic melodrama, and the supernatural chops of Page, Plant, Bonham, and Jones. For listeners new to the Zep canon, there's no better primer of the band's range and power than this 4 CD box set, compiled and remixed in 1990 by Page himself. All the obvious song choices are here. But even if you've already heard "Black Dog" once too often on the car radio, this set wisely spotlights several overlooked gems, including their ultimate blues lament "I'm Gonna Crawl." It's a blueprint that later generations of head-bangers tragically failed to follow. Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Better off with a few of their "classic" albums
Another blown box set. Too much filler, and missing too many essentials.
5-0 out of 5 stars This and the 2 CD box will get you everything.
I'm not as enamored with the "Complete Studio Recordings". If you have this and the matching 2 CD set you will have everything they released from the studio and a few bonuses. I like the condensed size, the lower cost and the fact that Jimmy Page remastered this set himself.
2-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Music, Not a Good Investment
The low score of this review is in no way a knock on the music included in this box set, which easily scores five stars.What the score reflects is the concept and execution of this box set.

Editorial Review

Though the band likely didn't know it at the time, this would prove to be the last studio record by one of the most famous rock & roll bands in the world. Drummer John Bonham died shortly after its release.Although nothing compares to early Led Zeppelin--and they lost many longtime fans in the late 1970s--this LP is nothing to be embarrassed by. They were quick to embrace and experiment with synthesizers, and while it wears a little thin by record's end (the synth-bloated "Carouselambra" and the slick AOR hit "All My Love"), it adds a certain majestic tone to the heavy-hitting opener, "In the Evening," and gives a rollicking good-time feel to "South Bound Suarez." Plant's howl and Page's bluesy guitars are in fine form on "I'm Gonna Crawl" and the lilting "Fool in the Rain" recalls the pretty numbers from their early career. Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars That's What Friends Are For
Due to Jimmy Page and John Bonham chasing the tail of the drug dragon and Robert Plant's vocal chords being frayed - a portion of In Through The Out Door was recorded in a studio used by vocal group ABBA - it was up to bassist/keyboard player John Paul Jones to hold the pieces of the band together for the "comeback" album that was released in the summer of 1979.
5-0 out of 5 stars In Through the Out Door....
...with the automatic fire alarm exit!First off, lets be real honest, punk wasn't that big of a problem in the late 1970's, sure in England it was everywhere, but here in the US Arena rock still had at least 70% of the mainstream music scene.How many punk albums have sold over 10 million?Very very few, at the same time the so-called "punk explosion" happened in 1975-1982, at least 11 hard rock bands released albums that sold in excess of 15 million each, so much for the "music of rebellion"!In fact the only Punk album ever to reach the infamous 10 million sold mark was "Dookie" by Green Day, so punk's impact is very overated.The only reason why people hype up punk music like it was the huge music scene during the late 70's is because they won't admit that it was in fact the heavy metal scene that came into dominance, because anybody who reads Rolling Stones is an extremely anti-metal music fan and they will use any excuse to dismiss the impact of Van Halen, Judas Priest, Ac/Dc, Aerosmith, and Kiss during the latter part of the 70's.
4-0 out of 5 stars Led Zep's Swan Song
No matter how negative the reviews from others on this disc, I have always loved it.A bit synth heavy in places (Carouselambra anyone?) which makes this more of a John Paul Jones record than anything.Three other tunes (which showed up on "Coda") were recorded during these sessions, and if the CD had been around then, I believe those songs would have been released as part of In Throught the Out Door.You'd have a Jimmy Page-John Paul Jones balance and would make a much stronger record.Anyway, if I were to sequence those songs into the mix, my ITTOD would look like this:

2-0 out of 5 stars Get your riffs in gear, or get on out of here.....
This is the group's 3rd completely uninspired album in a row. It is clear Motorhead are now going through the motions, releasing lesser iterations of old riffs, at least when they're not too busy re-releasing their 30th rehashed complilation album. I believe these guys are one of the top 10 rock bands of all time, but I suggest that their true fans encourage them to disband before they taint their legacy with more tepid material like this.

4-0 out of 5 stars Pure Motorhead
This is a pretty simple cd to review. Motorhead is one of those bands that stuck to their roots, and this album is just that. Another good album. If you like Motorhead, you will like this album.

4-0 out of 5 stars Another solid release from the ageless warriors
You'd think a little thing like age would stop Lemmy, and you'd think wrong.After 30 plus years, Lemmy and Motorhead are still going strong, and "Kiss of Death" is solid proof.Give a listen to the rip roaring "Trigger", along with "Under the Gun" and "Sword of Glory"; both of which are great headbangers.The surprisingly gripping ballad "God Was Never On Your Side" is what helps make "Kiss of Death" stand out as one of Motorhead's better albums of late (but not quite as good as "Inferno") and will even have life long fans of the band standing up and cheering.Yes, it's a sound that we've heard from them before and all too often, but that is never a bad thing when it comes to Motorhead.They don't try to "re-invent" themselves with every few albums, they just stay true to their roots and continue to pump out fast paced and hard rocking music one album after another, and "Kiss of Death" is no exception.All in all, Motorhead fans already know what to expect with this one, and as for new fans, don't be afraid to dive in. ...

When I first heard this I thought it was the corniest music I've ever heard. Then I listened to it more and more and grew appreciaton for all the songs. Now I am a huge Queen fan with all of their albums. This is the best Compilation I've ever heard.

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the Queen Newbie
This was my first full length Queen purchase.Back in 1992 I used to pop it into my cassette walkman (remember those?) and listen all night, when I was doing dishes, doing homework, etc.I never tired of it.I am still not tired of it.
5-0 out of 5 stars Classic Queen
I have listened to queen ever since I was a kid. There music is so kinetic and inspiring. Freddie Mercury had a voice that couldn't be beaten. This album is one of my favorites. It contains a great selection of their best stuff, from "Bohemian Rhapsody" to "These are the Days of Our Lives", early and new. I also believe Queen to be highly underated. I rarely hear them on the radio and many people I have talked to can only think of "We will Rock You" when I ask them if they have heard of Queen.

While most of their teen peers were embracing nascent '70s U.K. punk with all the snotty 'tude they could muster, Sheffield's Def Leppard instead infused then-moribund metal with bracing pop smarts. Having long since sold a gazillion or two records with that formula, the '80s superstars pay homage to the eclectic, chart-savvy tastes that spawned it on this collection of covers, recharging their contemporary fortunes a bit in the bargain. Their takes on Me Decade standards like The Faces' "Stay With Me," Badfinger's "No Matter What," and T Rex's "20th Century Boy" may be arguably Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Really Good...
but I can't help feeling a tad worried about these boys, being one of the last 80's hard rock bands left. Why, you might wonder. The answer is quite simple: there are a few "statements" that any recording artist should consider very carefully before actually making them, and these are, (in order, 1 being the most delicate): 5)a live album 4)an unplugged record 3)a greatest hits 2)a "covers" album 1)an album of re-recorded, remixed, updated hits. Such records, more often than not, become an artist's swan song (the examples are WAY too numerous to mention), since they are often the result of a contractual obligation, and many other times, they fortell the impending decline of a band that has little or nothing else to say. Considering that the last release from the Leppard boys WAS a greatest hits, I'd say we SHOULD be worried...I'm hoping I'm wrong, though, 'cause they are one of my fav bands...but to be honest with y'all, I've RARELY been proven wrong about things such as this...Anyway...Artistic worries aside, I think that the record is very good from a musical point of view: I knew the vast majority of these songs,as well as the artist that originally performed them beforehand (although I must admit that I'd never heard of John Kongos before...), and the end results are great! The album is great because, in my humble opinion, it succeeds in doing 3 critical things: 1)the new versions remain true to the spirit and emotion of the originals, which is THE most difficult thing to do when making a cover (how many HORRORS have we had to endure because of this very issue? too many to count...)2)the songs, while being covers, also show the inprint of the band's own personality 3)the trademark sound of the band is preserved, while at the same time it is updated, in other words, this doesn't sound like "Hysteria", but you can immediately tell that this is Def Leppard. Personally, I enjoy cover albums (The Spaghetti Incident, Acid Eaters, etc), and 13 years ago thanks to GN'R, I ended up discovering a myriad of great bands thanks to their own cover album: being a diehard, i took time to read ALL the liner notes, including their last message "do yourself a favor,go get the originals." The Leps don't actually say as much, but I think the message in implied in their own liner notes as well. Who knows? Maybe this will spark a new wave of interest in 70's rock? I think that would be great! But on to the music: this record IS NOT a glam cover record! (Just as GN'R record WAS NOT a punk cover album...) granted, Sweet, Bowie and T-Rex were definitely glam, but on the other hand, Thin Lizzy, Free, The Kinks and/or Badfinger WERE NOT glam. This is a tribute to their earliest influences, some of which happened to be glam. Most of the songs rock, and they are trully faithful renditions of the originals, with maybe a change here or there. My personal favorites are "Don't Believe a Word" (one of my fav Lizzy songs, and I couldn't be happier with the result), "Waterloo Sunset", "A little bit of Love", "20th Century Boy" (is he by any chance the boyfriend of the "21st Century Sha-la-la-la Girl"?) and "No matter what". A couple of songs can throw you off a little bit, especially if you're a hard rocker, such as John Kongos "He's gonna step on you again" and Bowie's "Drive-in Saturday". Now, don't get me wrong, they are great, but a little different from the rest of the album. But in the case of Bowie's tune, I feel it is a decidedly improvement over the original, which I never really liked, and I finally realized why: Bowie's delivery is flat and uninspired, the total opposite from Joe Elliott's. Again, don't get me wrong, I don't think it's likely to see Joe win any "best vocalist" accolades for his job here, but I believe he is a great singer and does a great work here. I only have two more observations: 1)why did they include YET AGAIN "No matter what", which was already On their Greatest Hits package, when they had additional songs to choose from, such as Space Oddity, Search and Destroy, etc??? 2)how come their version of "Hell Raiser" sounds a little stiff? This is very weird, especially since the Leps had done "Action" 13 years ago for "Retroactive", and their version was by far superior than the original; in this case, the song sounds good, but I guess I'll stick with the original. All in all, this is a great album, an although I'm not old enough to remember those days (as Sav says), I have been able to greatly enjoy the music from that era. Make yourself a favor and give this record a try, and while you're at it, check out the originals, too!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Yeah! by Def Leppard
I have always been a Def Leppard fan since 1979.Their music has always been great.Their CD Yeah is also great.It contains music that has been done by other artists but vamped up and done Leppard style.I think it adds a great twist to the originals and shows how good rock and roll still is.

5-0 out of 5 stars Def Leppard - 'Yeah!' (Mercury)
Review no.98.Total of fourteen tracks,'Yeah!' simply has to be ONE of the best all-cover CD's I've ever heard.I've just recently caught Leppard on their current summer co-headlining tour with Journey,as they superbly played two of the best cuts off this CD,T.Rex's "20th Century Boy" and David Essex's Rock On" (I've heard fans go nuts over hearing this tune,saying it's the best song to hit the airwaves in years). Other outstanding tracks here are Badfinger's "No Matter What", The Face's FM staple "Stay With Me",Free's "Little Bit Of Love" and ELO's "10538 Overture".A must-have.Highly recommended. ...
