They even turned down Pink Floyd! If MTV Unplugged showed we could be convincing in an acoustic environment, then this proved we could collaborate with a world class orchestra. Buy from Amazon. Usually bands do this in front of very small crowds, so we decided we would do it with a big audience in a special setting. Which is why we went to Athens at the open air Lycabettus Theatre. And the atmosphere was amazing. I feel we proved we could play an acoustic show at a very high level.

When I showed our manager this book, he got very excited, because he realised that was our 50 th anniversary, and so few bands make it to that landmark. So, he insisted we should do an album that celebrated the event. Bruce Fairbarin was our original choice to produce us, and we flew to LA to meet him. He put us in touch with Jim Vallance, because he thought Jim could help with the songwriting.

In the end we went with Keith Olsen, who did a superb job. Most of the recording was done at his Goodnight LA Studios, but Klaus had problems with the vocals, so we did those at Wisseloord Studios in Holland, where we also mixed it. Grunge was really taking off, but we could play to 20, people in somewhere like Malaysia because of the latter song. In fact, the consistency of this album helped us to survive the grunge onslaught.

While it lacks any stone-cold Scorpions classics, Rhythm Of Love and Believe In Love both hold their own, even if the overly glossy production dates them inextricably to their time. When the Scorpions announced they intended to revisit old ideas abandoned in the 80s and work them up into songs for a new album, it sounded very desperate. But against all expectations, the plan worked brilliantly. Return To Forever was the Scorpions returning to what they do best, and coming up with a triumphant set of songs.

Beyond that freakishly successful single, Crazy World is the best Scorpions album of the 90s. Their first album with Dieter Dierks producing, and the one with which the band moved away from their early psychedelic leanings. In Trance was also the first album to feature what is now the unmistakable Scorpions logo. Catch Your Train and the dynamic Picture Life positively gallop along, while Polar Nights enable Roth to stretch his creative muscles and show that there was more to him than rehashed Hendrix licks.

At the time, the controversy surrounding yet another provocative cover distracted from the music. Animal Magnetism also suffered from being sandwiched between their standout albums, Lovedrive and Blackout. Exit Uli Jon Roth, enter Matthias Jabs for the album which found the Scorpions embracing the slick hard rock approach with which they made their name. With Jabs on board and, on Coast To Coast , Michael Schenker guesting , the songs were sharper and shorter, as well as a little less reliant on extensive guitar solos than during the Roth era.

In reality it was down to the fact that the band were at the very top of their game on what remains the classic Scorpions album. Love At First Sting is packed with high-quality songs that struck a chord with the US market but retained their European roots, and the party metal of Bad Boys Running Wild , fan tribute Coming Home and the heartfelt ballad Still Loving You proved to be winners not only on record but on stage as well. After half a decade on the cusp, this was the album that marked the band becoming major international players.

As they eased into the 80s, the Scorpions became confident and comfortable with the demands of the era. In fact, some of the Scorpions ' best songs, such as "Loving You Sunday Morning," "Holiday," and "Coast to Coast" are found here, making it one of their finest. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript.

    In my opinion, Scorpions have made 5 great studio albums. Chronologically, this is the third great album and this is the first that made headway in the States. This is actually a diverse hard rock album for its time and everything works/5().

    Prior to Lovedrive's recording, the Scorpions' lineup had a major change when their lead guitarist, Uli Jon Roth, quit the group (not to mention, the rock genre was rapidly changing).With this in mind, the band not only highlighted the album with the licks and riffs of three guitarists (Rudolf Schenker, Michael Schenker, Matthias Jabs), but they also dramatically changed their Price: $
