Def Leppard are one of my all-time favorite bands, with many inclusions on this list.This album, "High 'N' Dry", is definitely their second best album.This was back when they were really just a heavy metal band from England.The twin attack of Pete Willis and Steve Clark, though not as good as Phil and Steve, is one thing that makes this album truly amazing.Rick Savage is also one of my favorite bass players, and Rick Allen is still one of my favorite drummers.This album especially shows Savage at his best.And of course Joe Elliot's great vocal range is incredible as always, but not as good on this record than on others.Standouts include rippin' opener "Let It Go", the great fan favorite "Mirror, Mirror (Look Into My Eyes)", and the VERY much underrated "Lady Strange".

Standout Track:
"Lady Strange" http://grooveshark.com/s/Lady+Strange/2r204A?src=5
