San Jose Mercury News - Concert Review Quote
"The Def Leppard sound was intact, with its cliched guitar solos and crunching beats and bass, offset by melodic sensibility that often eludes many heavy metalists."
"That is the charm and the flaw of Def Leppard."
"Guitarists Phil Collen and Steve Clark are capable performers, just as bassist Rick Savage and Allen (playing an electronic drum set designed for his handicap), make for a pile-driving rhythm section."
