I had a little Christmas money and I found the Guns N’ Roses album ‘Appetite for Destruction: Super Deluxe Edition’ on sale of $89.99 which is down from the $124.99 on Amazon so I decided to bite the bullet on this 4 CD set. Now, I didn’t have enough to the that $800+ Locked & Loaded Box Set so I had to pass on that one.
Now, lucky for you I will review this set and go through what it has to offer. With 73 tracks and 49 Unreleased tracks, I am not going to go through each song in detail as we would be here for days reading and I would be dead from writing all those words.

Def Leppard – ‘Hysteria’: This is one of my all time favorite albums. It was released on August 3 and spawned 7 singles (that is right 7). The album has gone on to sale over 25 million copies and has one of the most iconic rock songs of all time…”Pour Some Sugar On Me”. Go to mikeladano.com and check out a great review on the album (Then look around at his site, great reviews and great stories). With other hits like “Hysteria”, “Love Bites”, “Animal”, “Women” and “Rocket”, it is one of the greatest rock albums of all times.
