I know, I know — you are used to reading reviews about movies, but DVDs are more than movies and TV shows. A couple of years ago, I picked up a DVD of Def Leppard’s greatest videos on sale. While I didn’t listen much to Pyromania, Hysteria came out my senior year in high school. You couldn’t escape the sound of the band and if you were like me, you didn’t want to. It particularly played well in Panama City Beach, where it could be heard on the beach and at the beach clubs. Over the years I continued to listen to them, rediscovering them in 99 when they released an album (Euphoria) that harkened back to their Hysteria days.
So, Sunday night found me doing work on the computer and I decided to plop the DVD in — even though I had owned it for 2 years, I had yet to watch it. Why I waited so long, I’ll never know; but it was amazing. 19 videos, many 5+ minutes in length, graced my TV screen while the music came pumping out in DTS 5.1 .
The DVD also had a bonus video from a rehearsal in 06, as well as the ability to create your own, ordered playlist.
My advice: If you loved their music, check this one out — your ears and eyes will thank you….
