Every true rock fan or a metalhead must have had one defining moment in their lives. This moment generally comes about when seeing their favourite act live in concert or when inspired by their favourite bands launching their own band or maybe when purchasing the album which made them fans in the first place. In my case, this musically defining moment was when I bought Euphoria in 1999. I was only 10 then and I instantly fell in love with Def Leppard after watching their video "Promises" on our local music channel. I became glue-eyed, literally, when I saw them! But wait, I am not writing and ode to Def Leppard but a review for their 1999 album Euphoria and incidentally this was my first ever personally owned record!

I listened to this album for the first time yesterday. I stopped really following the band after "Adrenalize", even though they were the band that first got me into hard rock/metal, so it's taken me this long to finally pin this one down for a listen! I feel this album would have been a better follow up to "Hysteria" than "Adrenalize" was. It's still a fair way from the Leps at their best, but it is certainly better than I expected it to be. Whereas "Adrenalize" was a mostly poor album, "Euphoria" is decent for most of it's run-time, although it only contains one truly great song, which is "Paper Sun". That song is probably even better than "Adrenalize"'s one stand-out moment, "White Lightning", and is a phenomenal song. It's just a shame that songs like that one are such a rarity in the band's catalogue. Another issue I have, is that there aren't more guitar solos on the album, and some longer ones too.

I still have a soft spot for "Hysteria", and "Euphoria" makes a good companion piece for that album, and certainly would have made a more worthy follow up to it than "Adrenalize" was in any case.
