Sorry, Gav, but I've always been a believer in the theory: Know your strengths and play on them. Def Leppard always scored points for upbeat, anthemic powerhouse production and material. S.l.a.n.g. sounded like a band very far from home, desperately trying to tailor their style to the fashionable angst of the times. And it didn't work, or else "Euphoria" would have continued down that road. Why do you think "Euphoria" was dubbed the third in a "trilogy" that started with Pyromania and was taken to dizzying heights on "Hysteria"?

I'm all for experimentation, but I wonder how many of those S.l.a.n.g. tunes get included in Def Lep set lists these days?
