Pyromania is the third studio album by English rock band Def Leppard, released on 20 January 1983. It is the first album to feature guitarist Phil Collen and was produced by Robert John "Mutt" Lange. The album was a huge success, charting at #2 on the Billboard 200 and #18 on the UK Albums Chart and selling over ten million copies in the US, and thus being certified diamond by the RIAA.
2009 debut album from Fever Ray AKA Karin Dreijer Andersson, one half of The Knife. Fever Ray is the title, of both project and album, an evocation of the music's sound, intense and anxious, yet luminous. After having her second child and eight months of the most productive daydreaming later, Karin had a batch of new songs and the raw materials for the production of Fever Ray. Unsure how to get them over the finishing line, she took half to Christoffer Berg (who mixed The Knife's work), half to Stockholm production duo Van Rivers & The Subliminal Kid for a final brush and tickle. The result is Fever Ray, an album that, while recognizably the work of the same artist, is dramatically different from The Knife.
2009 debut album from this band fronted by former New Order/Joy Division guitarist Bernard Sumner. Never Cry Another Tear rings with familiar joys: playing of beautifully observed minimalism and a voice of wonderfully understated north-western soul. But there's also a new voice to be heard, one again from England's north west. Singing alongside Bernard is Jake Evans, a talented musician from Macclesfield. The album also features Phil Cunningham, a man familiar from both Marion and the most recent incarnation of New Order. Perhaps Bad Lieutenant can be seen as a new vehicle from a celebrated manufacturer: previous technology has been incorporated, but the overall appearance is new and it'll take you where you want to go in novel and exhilarating style.
