Cool cool cool
19 November 2004 | by (Oklahoma, US) – See all my reviews

OK...I admit it, I am a huge Def Leppard fan, but even if I wasn't, I would say this documentary is cool as hell! Band members actually dissect the recordings and you get to learn a lot about how the album and songs were made. Not only this, but there are some quite funny things that thank god, didn't make it on the album.

There are some cool additional songs that didn't make it onto the originally aired program, and a lot of band history. The only thing I wanted from this was more history, less rehashing of acoustic renditions of the songs. I have heard those before.

Another really cool bit is that Phil Collen actually explains how the guitar solo was recorded for the song Hysteria and other songs. I recommend this for any fan of 80's rock and any fan of Def Leppard!
