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

Editorial Reviews

After the SCORPIONS had announced their leave and advertised their last tour, the most frequently asked question by journalists all over the world, was the one about a possible comeback. "Comeblack" is a pun and a parody at the same time. The idea for this album came up during the rockers' impressive world tour:
"We can't exactly remember the day, the month or the hour, but at some point during this tour we were simply overwhelmed by the success of "Sting in the Tail" and our farewell tour. The idea to go back to the studio was born out of pure excitement ... Screaming fans wherever we went! It was great to share the studio with Mikael and Martin again, going crazy with ideas for a new "project"!"
Bookended by completely new productions of great SCORPIONS songs like "Rock You Like A Hurricane", "Wind Of Change" or "Still Loving You", adapted to today s technical standards, Meine, Schenker, Jabs & co. recorded songs in their very special way. Songs, which had enormous meaning to them during their career, and have since become milestones of musical history, like "Tin Soldier" by The Small Faces, "Ruby Tuesday" by The Rolling Stones, or Marc Almond s "Tainted Love".
You ask why? The answer is quite simple: This album is an encore for our die-hard fans, to thank them for all the support for so many years. At the same time, this is a tribute to legendary bands from the sixties, like The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, who have inspired us to follow our dreams. We hope you like it as much as we do ... Rock on and ... Comeblack« Scorpions...

Definitely something you need to add to your collection if you are a Scorpions fan.
James Hill
Overall its impressive(for remake cd) i like a few of the remakes and redone songs alot certainly not all of them but enough to make me like it.
Jason Jay
It is a trend afflicting many bands right now, and it will probably not go away anytime soon.

Between the newly released 3D concert blu-ray and this new compilation record, it's great to see the Scorpions providing a plethora of high-quality content during their farewell tour. Sting in the Tail was a fantastic final record with a great blend of hard-hitting tracks and powerful ballads. It appeared the Scorpions were done there, but a final trip to the studio has given the fans an added treat.

Comeblack is essentially the encore to Sting in the Tail, and while it lacks original tracks, the new takes on classic tracks are killer. The re-recorded Scorpions tracks are original enough to warrant a listen thanks to incredible production values. Meine's vocals are absolutely stunning and the instrumentals follow suit with Kottak's brutal drums and expert guitar work from Schenker, Jabs, and Maciwoda. In regards to the covers of songs from other bands, some may be turned off by inclusions like Ruby Tuesday and Tainted Love, but I fully support their tributes to the songs that influenced them. It's really cool to see a hard rock band like the Scorpions covering Beatles and Rolling Stones songs, not to mention that the tracks all fitting covers that do justice to the source material.

In what is likely to be the last Scorpions release, Comeblack is a fantastic send-off for the Scorpions' phenomenal 40+ year career.

Is it possible to fall in love all over again with the same ol' songs that are played all the time at show after show and we hear time and time again on classic radio? That's a resounding HELL YEAH!!

First, let me say it was nice to hear Klaus Meine sing the entirety of the songs. Usually in a LIVE show, he has the audience help quite a bit. This is okay, because that's what the fans love to do and what Klaus loves to hear. But, it was refreshing hearing his voice throughout the whole CD. Second, let me say, the man with the bionic voice has never sounded better. He is in rare form and I love hearing these classics in his current voice, which barely sounds any different than his golden years. It's a superb feeling, hearing that incredible signature primal snarl once again on the rockers and then to turn around and hear that soft velvet voice, such as on Still Loving You, almost like he's whispering in your ear. It's like silk on skin. Hey, remember guys, I am a woman and call it like I hear it.

One thing I did ask myself at one point while listening to No One Like You was; is it LIVE or is it Memorex? For those too young to remember the commercial; it was an ad about a Memorex cassette tape being played up against the real singer and they asked in the ad, "is it LIVE or is it Memorex?" Okay, well, that is what I asked at first. Some of the guitar parts, especially the solos, were so exact, that I really wondered for a minute if the original guitar parts had literally been dubbed into the current song or did these guys actually channel their early years and remained so true to the originals that I really couldn't tell. However, I can assure you with certainty, that these songs have been redone, no dubbing included.

This new Scorpions release is a mix of 7 re recordings of songs from their classic 1980-1991 period and 6 cover songs. While the Scorpions have more than earned the right to do whatever they want, I find this release to be ok but unessential. First the issue of Re Recording. As the re recordings are of classic songs with nothing really new revealed in them, I say what's the point of redoing a classic? Take any of the first 7 songs, why would we want to hear them redone? The originals are all classics in their own right.
Secondly, the issue of the cover tunes. While Children of the Revolution and All Day and All of the Night really do rock hard and sound great, I don't feel like any new ground is really broken. The covers of Across the Universe or Tainted Love really didn't do it for me.
In summary, I am not sure what listener this is aimed at. If you are fairly new to the Scorpions and want some or all of these classic hits, buy one of the greatest hits that are available by the band not this. At least you will have the originals and you probably won't care about hearing some cover tunes by the band. If you are a fan of the "classic period" of the Scorpions (The Mercury Records Years), and want something by the band, Pick up their 2007 release Humanity Hour One and if you are unfamiliar with any of the studio albums prior to 1978's Tokyo Tapes definitely seek those out. If you are a hardcore fan that picks up everything the band releases, then you probably own this already! I personally don't find anything new here that is essential. This will be one that will probably go on the shelf and probably not come out often.

If you're a Scorps fan, you may or may not like the new recordings of their classics, but their covers are worth checking out! When I saw the list I wasn't quite sure, but their hard rock spin to them really works.

I ended up getting "Tainted Love" and "All of the Day and All of the Night".

"Children of the Revolution" and "Ruby Tuesday" are pretty good, am going to listen to the samples one more time and might get them, too. "Ruby Tuesday", for me, is much better than the Stones original!

If nothing else this album is good enough that you should listen to the samples, which in this day and age is high praise, and for an aging band they can still rock you!
