    I think considering they are an old band, that it is pretty good...

    You see it will sell, "IF" radio keeps pushing it, and VH1 plays the video for "Now" in regular rotation...I only saw it on the Rock Show...

    I think the best way to look at this would be to see who was number 12-15. If 12-15 are suck bands that we like to make fun of, then this is a success!!!!!!!!!!!

    Either way, the songs and production suck.

    NEWS - Def Leppard's Back With Updated Sound On 'X'
    08/09/2002



    (8/9/02, 10 a.m. ET) -- Def Leppard's latest album, X, debuted at Number 11 on the Billboard 200 album chart with sales of more than 70,000. The album is spurred on by the collection's first single, "Now." With X, Def Leppard marches forward using the latest technology. Singer-songwriter Joe Elliott told LAUNCH about the band's 10th album.

    "There's things on the album like 'Gravity' for example, which is, production-wise, very different to anything that we've done in the past. But a lot of that is down to the arrangement of the song. Allowing us to do all this, almost techno drop in and outs of the guitar and stuff, because of the stuff that's available with Pro Tools. But it all comes from here. It's all in your mind. So you can chop silence into stuff, which you couldn't... It was very difficult to do that naturally in the old days. Now, everybody from Garbage to all the pop artists are doing stuff like that."

    Elliott added, "What we've tried to do with this record is use all the techniques that pop people use within our sound, which really isn't a million miles away from what we did on Hysteria."

    Def Leppard's Hysteria was released 15 years ago, and it has sold more than 12 million copies in the United States.

    On the way to lunch today the classic rock station here is blaring High and Dry.... as the song ends the DJ says "Lep has a NEW album out and it has ALREADY sold 71,000 copies and is still selling strong. I haven't hear it yet but I hear it is good. You'll have to check it out."
    I still thought it was cool to hear something besides Photograph on the radio

    Gee, 72,000. Not bad for a garage band, not that great for a band that has sold over, what?, 45,000,000 albums. I think the real reason is that the album sucks.

    To each their own.....

    I caved in and watched that horrid video they have for "Now" and I have to say that's the worst piece-of-shit the band has ever recorded. I'd rather listen to recent Aerosmith over that bullshit.

    I was VERY encouraged after I bought Euphoria a few years ago, but everything I have heard off of X is pretty crappy.

    That song Gravity is garbage, it sounds more like Britney Spears then Def Leppard. [img]redface.gif[/img]
