SCORPIONS TAKEN BY FORCE reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

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.
