DEF LEPPARD: 'Best Of' Certified Gold In U.K. - Nov. 5, 2004

Only a little over a week after DEF LEPPARD's "Best Of" compilation album was released in the U.K., it has been certified gold: at this time, more than 120,000 copies of the album have been sold already.

"Best of" is a European-only compilation album of featuring the band's greatest hits plus one new song (a cover of THE KINKS' "Waterloo Sunset"). The collection is due to receive a U.S. release in 2005.

It's a lot like Vault really with a few extra songs thrown in. It's a good compilation and if you don't have Vault then it's a good buy. It's a very good version of Waterloo Sunset. I think Ray Davies will be pleased that someone has covered his work so well.

Disk 1 IS Vault but with LLWTG inbetween Action and Make Love Like A Man. I'll still be buying the 2CD version and DVD.

Waterloo Sunset is excellent. This band still performs superbly.
