If you were browsing in a record store (they still have those, right?), and you happened upon Def Leppard's latest, and said to yourself, "This can't possibly be any good. Cuz it's Def Leppard. Eh wot," I would certainly not fault you for your opinion.

However, you'd be so very wrong.

Yeah! is a set of covers of classic 70s British rock hits, stuff from T. Rex, Bowie, ELO, Roxy Music, Sweet, etc. They tend towards the literal, they don't get too adventurous, but damn they sound really good. And the love, reverence, and humility inherant in a project like this is heartening.
