Hysteria is the fourth album by the British synthpop band The Human League. Following the worldwide success of the 1981 album "Dare (album)", the band struggled to make a successful follow-up and the sessions for "Hysteria" were fraught with problems. The album name itself is taken from the problematic recording period. [Windle, Rob [http://www.league-online.com/biography3.html] ] Producers Martin Rushent and Chris Thomas both left the project which would eventually be finished by producer Hugh Padgham.

By the time "Hysteria" was released, three years had passed since "Dare" and the album met with relatively lacklustre success in comparison to its multi-platinum predecessor. Three singles from the album made the top-twenty of the UK singles chart but first single The Lebanon was the only song to chart in the U.S., stalling at number sixty-four on the Billboard Hot 100. The album peaked at number three in the UK, later being certified Gold.

In 2005 "Hysteria" was remastered and re-issued with B-sides and extended mixes as bonus tracks.
