Biography

“While we were working on our album these past few months, we could literally feel how powerful and creative our work was–and how much fun we were still having, in the process,” says SCORPIONS lead singer KLAUS MEINE about the band’s new album STING IN THE TAIL. “We want to end the SCORPIONS’ extraordinary career on a high note. We are extremely gracious for ... Read more in Amazon's Scorpions Store

Customer Reviews

Highly recommend to all new Scorpions fans.
Scorpions Rock
The "Box Of Scorpions" 3-disc set is probably the best of the many Scorpions compilations that have been released to date.

If you are a casual Scorpions fan, but want a more comprehensive compilation than the 20th Century Masters - Best of Scorpions album, then Box of Scorpions is one of the best deals available. This album touches on pretty much every Scorpions album, from 1972's Lonesome Crow through 2002's Bad For Good: The Very Best of Scorpions. This shows how Scorpions have evolved over the course of three decades, from the progressive-jazz-rock in the their early days, to the raw German metal of the 70s, the pop rock of the 80s, and their experimentation of the 90s.

Pros:

- Pretty much every album is covered, which no commercially available compilation has done yet. Most compilations have concentrated only on their RCA or Mercury years albums.

- In addition to the well known songs, there are some other not as well known songs like "20th Century Man", or "I'm Goin' Mad".

- The inside packaging features a description/comment about each song, which gives some interesting tidbits about some of the songs (such as "Cause I Love You" was another song written around the Lovedrive era).

Cons:

- For being called "Box of Scorpions", it isn't even in a box! It is more elaborate packaging, which is nice looking, but it's not a true boxed set.

- Pretty much every real boxed set I've seen tends to contain many rarities, such as B-sides, demos, extra live cuts, etc. Nirvana's boxed set contains mostly rare songs. Axel Rudi Pell's compilation album "Wizard's Chosen Few" also contained a decent number of rare and new songs. Box of Scorpions did not contain any new songs that many die-hard Scorpions fans didn't already have.

The "Box Of Scorpions" 3-disc set is probably the best of the many Scorpions compilations that have been released to date. Credit must be given to the folks at Universal Music for getting it done right with this set.

Here's what makes this set pretty decent compared to the other Scorpions packages:

1. A fair representation of tracks from the entire era of Scorpions music, including tracks from albums released under the RCA label. (Not to complain, but it would have been nice to see "It All Depends" here).

2. A number of tracks that have not appeared on other sets, such as "Don't Make No Promises", "20th Century Man" and "Mysterious". It's good to see different tracks other that the same ones that appear over and over again.

3. Three discs as opposed to two or one. Let's face it, any compilation of the Scorpions that does not contain at least 3 discs or maybe 4 just doesn't do justice to the band or its fans. The Scorpions have been around too long to have one-disc CDs being released with their hits. These small compilations will not contain all of their best stuff.

If you are new to the Scorpions or a long-time fan, do yourself a favor and pick up this set. It has the best of what the Scorpions are all about and you won't be disappointed.

When I first heard the scorps releasing this box , I was excited, however this is my plus and minus report,
plus - I was impressed that it covered every
album
they did . And every song they put on , were songs that i've loved.
minus- I was hoping they would put old unreleased tracks.
as well as never before heard live shows from 1973-1977,
or lovedrive shows when micheal schenker played with them during that tour. I also was displeased they only put one song off the "lonesome crow" album.
plus- the booklet comes with a summary of each song ,as well as pictures of each album.
minus- all the photos of the band are of the classic lineup (1979-1991) there are no early photos of members such as , Micheal Schenker , Ulrich Roth , Jurgen Rosthental , Klaus Meine with hair.
All in all this is not really a box set , just a well put together compilation. good to have , but not that exciting.

I don't feel the need to praise Scorpions like the other reviewers because you already know the guys. And I don't need to tell about the songs because you already know them. What I really want to talk about is the sound quality of the CD.

I bought Scorpions (Best), this one, and the Remaster series of the albums. I played the same songs on all of them.The quality was not the best. It has all the good versions of the songs. Better quality than the first releases. But not the best.

Even though it does not include the all essentials, On one album, It sounded like they traveled through time and just recorded today with the new technology on the "Scorpions: Best" - There are many of them so I will give the Full Catalog Number: 724349701328 - in Amazon it is only 4970132. I am not saying don't buy the "Box of Scorpions" There are many more songs that I liked on that one on other albums. But Scorpions : Best sounds way better

Who needs another "best of" album that covers the entire career from SCORPIONS after:

- Bad For Good. The Very Best Of Scorpions.

- 20th Century Masters

- Deadly Sting. Mercury Years

- The Best Of Rockers'N'Ballads.

- Scoprions: Best (Import)

- Hot & Slow: Best Masters of the 70's.

- Acoustica.

Well, I guess nobody.

Every band is releasing it's own box set and I guess SCORPIONS or the record company didn't want to be without one. But all the other bands included at least ONE song that was "live", "bootleg" or even "unreleased". This compilation is flat, all the songs are very much the same as they are in the original recordings. And nothing is new. NOT EVEN A SONG COVER FROM OTHER BAND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On the other hand....................... Where is the box in the "Box Set"? This is not even in a box. I have to say the package is very first class, but it's in a package as the VAN HALEN album "Right Here" came (on their first edition). So is nothing very great.

I won't review SCORPIONS cause they are survivors on the hard rock music. They have been together even before KISS, AC/DC, VAN HALEN maybe even JUDAS PRIEST. They are great, but hey, A BOX SET that doesn't even comes in a box?.

I guess you have my point, spending $36.00 USD for music you already have is pretty stupid. Who is stupid enough to spend it? Well................................I am. That's why I'm telling you to skip this one, unless you are a completist not a collector.

Buy another "Best of" album and save some money. Or better yet, buy the entire collection (Their music deserves it). But stay away of this one, unless you are a die-hard fan.

The inner notes are good although.
