To close the article, Phil talks about the new Def Leppard album:
 
"It's really diverse," Collen says of the follow-up to 2008's Songs From the Sparkle Lounge"I honestly think it's the best thing we've done probably in about 20 years. We went in to do a single or an EP and we came out with 12 songs. There was absolutely no pressure. There was no record company executive. There was no record label. We did it for ourselves, and the songs range from flat-out hard rock, almost punky on some of the stuff, to classic Leppard, and there's some other tracks that sound like they'd be on top 40 radio -- just the massive choir of vocals and melodies and all this stuff going on. We treated each song as a different project and did it over a year and a half, which really did help it. I think people are going to like it a lot."
