The album includes a limited-edition custom PikCARD, which unlocks the DEF LEPPARD online "Vault" (named after the band's best-selling greatest-hits CD). Inside the "Vault", DEF LEPPARD fans have exclusive access to a variety of content, contests and memorabilia, featuring highlights such as personal photos from the road, registration to the band's fan club, entry into an exclusive contest to win backstage passes and VIP access the next time DEF LEPPARD comes to the winner's town, new album lyrics — handwritten by Joe Elliott — and a personal messages from the band.

not bad

I have this album,it sounds more like High N Dry than Hysteria, going to see them in June,hopefully it will be a good show,still don't know who will support.

I haven't heard the whole album but I wasn't impressed with "Nine Lives." Didn't Aerosmith have a song and album with that title ten years ago?

I saw Def Leppard a few years ago in Daytona Beach. I've never been a huge fan, but I like the hits. I've got to say that they put on one hell of show. I was presently surprised. One of the things I remember most about that show is that Joe Elliot kept commenting on all the great strip clubs in Daytona, and how the band was going to Lollipops after the show. I wanted to go, but I wasn't driving and my friends just wanted to go home. It would've been awesome to hang out with Def Leppard at that club. It's pretty wild as it is.

no one wants to hear a good Def Leppard album more than me. so i gave this every chance possible.

but, man, this album blows. even when they try to rock it just comes off as fake.

the vocal situation is terrible. the background vocals are still the same, but Elliot's lead vocal is just a neutered shell of it's former self. it's so wimpy and uninspired sounding. smoking cigarettes really cost this guy his pipes.
