An under rated classic

I remember buying Slang when it first came out and enjoying it. I was in a minority of Def Leppard fans at the time but found that most if the songs were excellent. Songs like 'Gift of Flesh' and 'Blood runs Cold' were as good as any Def Leppard song. Yes, there were a few poor songs, 'Pearl of Euphoria' and 'Work it Out' were songs that didn't really cut it with me, though a second listen, with older ears, the latter has changed my mind and I now feel that this song is overall good.
The 'extras' on this album are like perfection to a fan's ears as well. Showing the development of some of these songs is both interesting and makes you see the work that was put into this album.
Definitely an underrated classic of an album. Not a Hysteria or Pyromania but what is. Still better than a lot of bands attempts at this genre of music. Looking forward to new music as well as a long overdue tour of the country of birth for Def Leppard. Long overdue again.

Emerging in the late '70s as part of the New Wave of British Heavy Metal, Def Leppard actually owed more to the glam rock and metal of the early '70s, as their sound was equal parts T. Rex, Mott the Hoople, Queen, and Led Zeppelin. By toning down their heavy riffs...
