The only track I've listened to in the last like six months is Bad Actress.

So my brother lent me 'The Best Of Def Leppard(2 disc version)' and 'Songs From the Sparkle Lounge'

I really like 'Songs From the Sparkle Lounge', and after reading comments about the album in this topic, I now feel a little silly.

So... you can see see how some people's perception/opinion can be WAY off and to always take it with a grain of whatever. No reason to feel silly. What did you like in particular about it?

The 2 disc version of Best Of is great! The 2nd disc in particular really does well in giving you some great album moments and for now...the only way you are going to get tracks like Let It Go, Another Hit and Run, and High N Dry (Saturday Night) in re-mastered form.

I felt sailly because amongst real Def Leppard fans like yourselves, it didn't seem to do very well.

I actually like almost every track, 'Nine Lives' and 'Go' are great in my opinion.

You shouldn't feel silly. Go is one of the best tracks they've done. It's honest and a taste of modern Leppard. Nine Lives.....it's going to be a lot easier for a new fan to digest that. I hate the verse lyrics, the country guest, and the blatant Armageddon It rip. It falls in with almost anything Bon Jovi has done similarly towards a 1st single and I don't love those either. They do pull in new fans with such songs.
