Scorpions are a German heavy metal, hard rock band formed in 1965. Since the band's inception, their musical style has ranged from hard rock to heavy metal. The band's only constant member is guitarist Rudolf Schenker, although Klaus Meine has been lead singer for all their studio albums. They are known for their 1980s rock anthem Rock You Like a Hurricane and many singles, such as No One Like You, Send Me an Angel, Still Loving You, and Wind of Change. The band was ranked No. 46 on VH1's Greatest Artists of Hard Rock program. Rock You Like a Hurricane is also No. 18 on VH1's list of the 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs. The band is one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time, with claims of sales around 75 million to 100 million records worldwide.

SCORPIONS Reviews

SCORPIONS Virgin Killer

Album · 1976 · Hard Rock
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
voila_la_scorie
There’re no lead in sound effects, no acoustic intros, or any willy-nillying to the beginning of this album. The first song, “Pictured Life” just kicks off the album with a melodic hard rock song that features Uli Jon Roth’s lead melody. The guitar sound is high toned but backed with the bass of Francis Buchholz it takes on a heavier sound. Someone out there called this song a stand out track in the Scorpions catalogue.

For me though, the next track, “Catch Your Train” is even more exciting, erupting from the album with a sustained guitar note by Roth and slashing chords by Michael Schenker, then a flurry of notes off Roth’s fretboard. When Kirk Hammett appeared alongside Roth on Eddie Trunk’s “That Metal Show”, Hammett stated how that song, with its pyrotechnic lead guitar work, had inspired him as a young teenager. The song is hurried and powerful.

“Walk in Your Park” is an early power ballad but seemingly loud in the loud parts though quite gentle in the softer moments. “Backstage Queen” a good but typical rocker.

And then there’s the title track. “Virgin Killer” was inspired by KISS and the lyrics written by Roth are about how Time is the stealer of innocence. The album cover art was decided by the record company and it featured a nude ten-year-old girl posing seductively with her genitalia obscured by a crack in the glass supposedly covering the photograph. Though no one in the band considered this as promoting child pornography at the time, the album received serious criticism in the U.K. and the U.S. and had to be sold in a black cover in some countries whereas for other countries the cover photo was replaced with one of the band. Indeed the copy I had on cassette in Canada in the eighties was the band version. When Wikipedia included an article about the album using the original album art, protests and complaints created a case against Wikipedia using what many deemed as an image promoting child pornography and pedophilia. The FBI became involved although in the end no American laws were found to have been violated.

Side two of the album features two tracks with Roth on lead vocals, “Hell Cat” and “Polar Nights”. Both of these are stand out tracks because Roth’s deep love for Jimi Hendrix can be heard in the guitar riffs. Not the best choice for a lead vocalist, Roth would eventually leave the Scorpions and start his own band, Electric Sun and take the lead vocal duties.

Other tracks on side two include “Crying Time”, which to me still carries a bit of the psychedelic mood that was on early Scorpions recordings, and another slower, ballad type of song, “The Yellow Raven” which is very soft and delicate until the powerful, hard rock ending.

This album sees for a brief time the Roth-era Scorpions really coming into their sound. The previous two albums were each quite distinct: “Fly to the Rainbow” being basically Roth’s band, Dawn Road, writing material with Rudolf Schenker and Klaus Meine that still had some progressive tendencies, and “In Trance” the first step toward writing shorter hard rock sounds with producer Dieter Dierks. While both of these older albums have some strengths and weaknesses, I see “Virgin Killer” along with “Taken by Force” as two excellent albums featuring some seminal hard rock and early metal performances with Roth’s guitar work standing out. According to Wikipedia, at least three songs from this album have been covered by modern metal bands. As this album seems to be much appreciated in the metal music world, I feel vindicated for loving it in spite of the fact that among my friends in junior high school, I was the only one who liked Uli Jon Roth-era Scorpions.

SCORPIONS Love At First Sting

Blackout was a fun album, but it did rather walk a fine tightrope between pleasing the diehard metal audience on the one hand and expanding the band's appeal to a broader crowd on the other. With Love At First Sting, the balance tips firmly towards smooth accessibility and broad commercial appeal, with the end result being an album which will be liked by many but rarely loved.

For my part, there's just slightly too much self-conscious pandering to generic rock tastes here to make this feel like a really compelling Scorpions album; Rock You Like a Hurricane, the breakthrough single, kind of sums this up all really, in that it's a song that promises to rock you with the force of a natural disaster but is actually much wimpier than a good cross-section of their prior material. Interesting only if you are looking into Scorpions' brief moment in the pop limelight.

SCORPIONS Blackout

The Scorpions' US breakthrough and commercial peak, Blackout finds the band no longer even trying to stay on the front line of metal when it comes to heaviness or wild abandon, instead embracing sheer singalong catchiness to retain the listener's interest. It more or less works, though whilst it has a great initial impact, it seems to lose a little something on repeated listens, especially compared to their classic 1970s peaks like In Trance or Lovedrive. It's good that it finally got the public to sit up and pay attention to the band for something other than their controversial album covers, but at the same time they'd done better.

SCORPIONS Lovedrive

Album · 1979 · Heavy Metal

On Lovedrive, Scorpions say goodbye to the 1970s by laying a blueprint for the world-conquering arena metal of the 1980s - in the best possible way. Yes, the album is unashamedly commercial; yes, the cover is faintly disgusting; yes, the album starts off a little lukewarm (to my ears, anyway); yes, the lyrics often degenerate into vapid boasting. None of that matters when the songs are this catchy and the delivery this powerful. The title track, in particular, is perhaps the catchiest song that Scorpions had put out up to this point, and yet it doesn't feel like some neutered commercial compromise. Proving to the world that metal could be accessible without being poppy, Lovedrive is a major landmark.

SCORPIONS Taken By Force

Album · 1977 · Heavy Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Warthur
How quickly times change. In 1975, Scorpions' In Trance had them stake a claim to be one of the heaviest bands out there; by 1977, though, a new breed of even heavier bands were emerging, with the likes of Judas Priest and Motorhead creeping out of the woodwork and taking the lead in the heaviness stakes.

Rather than going heavier, with Taken By Force Scorpions go catchier, with eight songs you can't help to nod along to. It's nowhere near pop metal, but it leans a bit more towards Scorpions' hard rock side and a bit less towards their heavy metal side than In Trance did.
