Def Leppard: Adrenalize (1992)

def leppard adrenalize

By Scott Goldfine

Def Leppard, one of the bestselling acts of all time, remains true to its formula of hard rock with a dash of pop on its fifth album “Adrenalize.” Shaking off the loss of guitarist Steve Clark (overdose), the Englanders perform dense, orchestral pieces marked by soaring harmonies.

This LP is the equal of Def Leppard’s prior successes, with an overwhelming emphasis on production over substance.
