Def Leppard's Pyromania was a breakthrough release (1983), as radio
stations heavily played songs such as "Photograph," "Foolin'" and
"Rock Of Ages." Heavy Metail Hair bands were just starting to take its the
course, and Def Leppard was just one of the many (and actually better) bands
to generate regular airplay and popularity.
"Rock Rock (Till You Drop)" is one of those songs where a radio
station will change its format to a Heavy Metal format. Before the station's
format change was to begin, they would play (most likely the weekend before)
"Rock Rock (Till You Drop)" repeatedly, before the initial format change
was to begin. "Stagefright" may not have been a regular radio player,
this song is just another common heavy metal rocker, as it really didn't spark
as much excitement as the well-known popular songs from this album. Likewise
the same can be said for "Too Late For Love" and "Die Hard The
Hunter." In fact, the remaining non-popular tracks are pretty much the
same as well.
Def Leppard's Pyromania is a failry good album. I wasn't really a
huge fan of the band, compared to other hair bands of the day. The popular 3
songs are the standouts, as they were heavily played on radio. I'm sure there
are the die hard DL fans out there, that would argue that every track is as
exceptional as the popular 3 songs mentioned. Overall, it is a good rock album,
more enjoyed by the DL fans, and fans of the 1980s Hair Bands.
