Def Leppard - 1980 - On through the night

Post by The ripper on Tue 29 Sep - 13:34












Released 14 march 1980

As we all know, Def Leppard became HUGE in the ’80s.  
They were one of the few NWOBHM to break out of the scene and on to the world stage.  
Even when they were mixed up with the NWOBHM, great things were expected of them.  
On Through The Night was Def Leppard’s first full-length LP (and an album that Def Leppard pretty much ignores nowadays).  
The first two tracks, Rock Brigade and Hello America are bright and shiny rockers.  
The guys were essentially putting the world on notice that they were headed for the bright lights.  
My favorite track on On Through The Night is the seven minute plus epic closer Overture.  
It is a bit of a departure compared to the rest of the album,
and in the Def Leppard catalog it stands out in stark contrast to anything else they would ever do.  
Overture is a magnificent gem to behold and easily one of my top selections from good ol’ 1980!
