I agree with all of your comments, Scott...

This is obviously very much in the "Love" vein from Sparkle Lounge and it's a song that no other rock band would attempt vocally so props to the Leps for singing like crazy on this one. You know, there are still a lot of knuckleheads out there that think they can't sing, but some people will never "get it."

and let me say this - and it's not just in defense of Leppard - although I admit I'm a huge fan...

It's 2011, so please stop expecting your favorite band to sound like they did 20-30 years ago. Def Leppard will likely never record songs that sound exactly like High 'N Dry, or Pyromania, or Hysteria, studio albums recorded with the greatest producer on the planet, Hysteria taking a famous 3-4 years of studio work, recorded note by note for millions of dollars. It's 2011 and I dare you and your band to record songs that sound as good as "Kings Of The World" in your home studio.

I wonder how many musicians are on this board? True musicians rarely like to revisit their former glory. Musicians like to move on to the next project, the next set of challenges, the next inspiration.

But it's always the same comments - "it's OK, but it's no Hysteria." It's OK, but they'll never top Mindcrime." it just gets boring. Enjoy the music for what it is - an expression of what the band wants to write TODAY. Of course, you can like it or dislike it all you want. But please stop with the unfair comparisions of a lifetime ago...

Oh yeah, and I love the song...
