Default New Def Leppard- Best Of

To any Def Leppard fans, they are releasing a new 'Best Of' in October, it is confirmed on their website. I've got to wonder if they will really put any tracks from their last albums (Slang, X, Euphoria) and any new songs. But I am hoping it will be a good album from them.

Yeah I see it as a rip off, hopefully they will put some songs on there that weren't on Vault, and wonder How much material from Slang, Euphoria and X will be on there???
and a new track has to be a must.

There's gonna be different versions of it, one with two CD's. The extra track is going to be some 60's cover. I'll quote:
Quote:
The new compilation will be available in various different formats. For example, the tracklisting of the North American version will be different than the UK/European version, and on some markets a limited edition double CD will be released, including a brand new Def Leppard version of a classic hit song from the 60s. Furthermore, a DVD of "BEST OF DEF LEPPARD" will also be available, containing some 30 promo videos from 1983-2002.

So that package has videos from Pyromania to X. Kind of lame that they put that dvd out since they just released all their videos 2 years ago. And the only new thing on that dvd will be 2 videos from X. Although no-one´s forcing me to buy it.

Hopefully with this new DVD they'll actually improve the picture quality this time as they didn't on the previous DVD's. (especially In the Round In Your Face, the picture quality is horrible) And also, they should at least include a Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound feature this time.

I suppose I would buy it for the sake of the 2 X promo videos although I don't see why they don't just release a new live DVD from the X tour including the Now and LLWTG vids. That would be a much more worthy purchase.

this is the tracklisting for UK/Europe/Japan according to the official wesite:

1. POUR SOME SUGAR ON ME
2. PHOTOGRAPH
3. LOVE BITES
4. LET'S GET ROCKED
5. TWO STEPS BEHIND
6. ANIMAL
7. HEAVEN IS
8. ROCKET
9. WHEN LOVE & HATE COLLIDE
10. ACTION
11. LONG, LONG WAY TO GO
12. MAKE LOVE LIKE A MAN
13. ARMAGEDDON IT
14. HAVE YOU EVER NEEDED SOMEONE SO BAD
15. ROCK OF AGES
16. HYSTERIA
17. BRINGIN' ON THE HEARTBREAK

It seems like a rip off.
But it also says on the website that this will be a replacement for 1995's vault, so now vault is off production and this is the Greatest hits that are gonna be on sale from DL at record stores.

It's bullsh** is what it is. Bad marketing and business decisions.

First, someone really needs to sit the band and label down and explain to them that Long Long Way To Go is NOT the hit single they think it has potential to be. It's the type of song that the casual listener would hear and go "that Def Leppard, all their sh** sounds the same." Worse, it's not even written by the band.

Second, I realize this is basically Vault replaced....and that it is pretty much the singles compiled. Ok. Where the F**K is Promises, Goodbye, Slang, Work It Out, All I Want Is Everything, and Now???? Promote your albums you freakin dipshits!! Pyromania and Hysteria are on average 20 years old! A Best Of is the perfect opportunity to expose casual fans to material other than just crap from Pyro, Hysteria, and Adrenalize. I guarandamntee you if they had done this they'd get people realizing they do have other worthy albums besides the ones released in the 1980s and to go buy them!
