Idaho Statesman - Online Review Quotes

"Def Leppard's most satisfying moments came during tunes like hard rocker "Foolin,'" from the band's classic 1983 album "Pyromania." The worst were throwaways like "Armageddon It," from the commercially massive "Hysteria." Naturally, Def Leppard felt compelled to perform a new collaboration with country singer Tim McGraw from the band's next album, due April 29. (Why the still-current McGraw would duet with Def Leppard is a mystery.) The tune was a snooze."

"Maybe McGraw's presence would have saved it. Either way, you sort of had to forgive. Def Leppard dipped all the way back to 1981 for "Mirror, Mirror (Look Into My Eyes)." And everybody secretly loves "Pour Some Sugar on Me."
