High 'N' Dry Review | Def Leppard | Reviews @ Ultimate-Guitar.Com (822 words)
Def Leppard's second album, High 'N' Dry, continues in the vein of the anthemic, working-class hard rock of their debut.
I think that Joe Elliott and Steve Clark were the real composers of the "High 'N' Dry," the fusion of the lyrics and the guitar enterings with the great and simple solos, are the best things of High 'N' Dry.
The best songs of High 'N' Dry are "Switch 625," "Bringin' On The Heartbreak," "Let It Go" and "Lady Strange." I love the album because it captures the truly spirit of the young spirit of Def Leppard.
