Def Leppard
Mirror Ball
Style: Heavy Metal
Release date: 20 June, 2011
Playing time: 120:17

Even though Def Leppard began their career more than 30 years ago this is their first ever live album from the Sheffield boys. And with a back catalogue of eleven studio albums on their back it is pretty hard to cover all areas of their career on a double album without neglecting some.

But I think they've managed to walk the fine line very well, and the song selection is very good; mixing the classics with a few newer songs because they do have many, many classics that people want to hear! Only notable song missing in my opinion is "When Love and Hate Collide", but you can have it all. "Pyromania" will forever stand as their magnum opus and it is off course very strong represented here and so is "Hysteria", and that is what the fans want!

I think they've succeeded in making a very good live retrospect of their best songs and the three new songs at the end of the album are all solid Def Leppard songs. So this is basically a solid live album that will be a good musical partner for the summer's many barbecues...
