Reviewed on 3/22/2019...
I'm a huge Def Leppard fan but the Amazon reviews and ones on here at 5/5 were huge overstatements. I lost interest and got bored with the interviews about 8 minutes in. The cuts and current vocal singing were cool but it could not bring this out of a poorly done documentary. Some interesting facts if you are a fan. I would otherwise avoid this unless you are a fan.

"This is a DVD in the "Classic Albums" series, which has interviews with the band and Mutt and some other people tangentally related to the making of Hystera. This is NOT the "Hysteria" movie.

When I got this, I was pretty disappointed that Amazon mislabeled it. After watching it though I am very happy that I ended up with it and it's one of my most watched DVDs.

Strictly for music/recording nerds and Def Leppard fans, this is a well done documentary piece on what the band went through when recording Hysteria as well as the touring they did after Rick's accident. Musically it points out some of the nuances that one might miss through casual listening and some great bits which (thankfully, in some cases) never made it onto the album.

The DVD has a whole lot of Phil and Joe but Rick really shines on this too and special attention is given to Steve's contributions."
Great insight into one of the best selling album of all time

"This is a great DVD from the classic albums line. the DVD is split into 2 sections part 1 is 50 minutes (?) It goes into great detail how the band put this album together. The interviews were excellent and Steve Clark finally gets the recognition he so finely deserves (and has done for years). I think they should have had more than a 30 second interview soundbyte from Steve though. This dvd also features promo videos for different songs both live and through music video. In closing on section 1 I thought this album had the band at breaking point though it was very draining on all on them to get the results that they got.The second part about 50/51 minutes Joe and Phil take you almost track for track telling you how each song was put together. Joe and Phil also perform unplugged versions of songs from Hysteria. Overall this was a very DVD I got mine for... and I thought it was wellworth shelling out for in the end."
Interesting look at the madness of Def Leppard

"This DVD gives a real feel of what these guys went through to make the best rock album of all time. They give Steve Clark alot of credit for this album and his contribution to the band overall. This should shut the people up who say they don't appreciate Steve Clark anymore. Pick this DVD up and watch the making of this album to the top of the charts. It is presented in widescreen with a very good picture and the sound quality is great. A very good look at the life of a band in the studio. Keep the faith. X is out now!"
