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

5.0 out of 5 stars Scorpions best album ever. . . June 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The 1979 album "Lovedrive" by Scorpions is a tremendous effort, seemingly fueled by conflict, chaos, desperation, and fraternity, that rises to a level just short of perfection.
In 1978 Scorpions were in a rebuilding year, having just issued a pink slip to lead guitarist Ulrich Roth. The decision to jettison Roth (and all the Hendrix-ian baggage that came with him) was the first of many smart moves made by the band. Before "Lovedrive" was completed, the band would hire, record with, fire, then rehire Matthias Jabs. The band would also briefly rejoin with Michael Schenker(another great move), in what many fans have called the dream line up for Scorpions. Sadly, this line up only lasted a few months. Michael collapsed onstage during a performance with Scorpions in Europe, and chose to step down and go on sabbatical, but not before positively influencing the group as shown here.
Given the tumultuous circumstances under which the album was recorded, its' a minor miracle the album is any good at all. "Lovedrive" however is a four star effort and I believe the best album ever made by Scorpions. Song writing, both musical and lyrical, are prime, and the group emotes all over this album without sounding ridiculous or tired.
The frantically paced classic "Another Piece of Meat"(boy meets girl, love goes wrong at Tokyo kick boxing match), the title song "Lovedrive"(girl-loves-guy/guy-loves-Porsche), and the fantastic "I Can't Get Enough" (or "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Hard Rock") are the three stand out numbers that efficiently showcase the strengths of Scorpions, effectively translating their live vibe onto disc.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Teutonic champions return after Roth departs. November 6, 2003
Format:Audio CD
...Awesome album. Pure raunch, pure heat. One of Scorpions' best. Its surprisingly good for the first one missing Uli Jon Roth. I have a place in my heart for the man but I still love this album. His Teutonic metal twin Michael Schenker is on here anyway. A three guitar attack with Mathias, Rudi and Michael. Highly worth it but I wonder what could've been if they let Michael in on the songwriting more and gave him more solos. "Another Piece of Meat" an awesome (ironic title if you read the lyrics) blazing tune. "Coast to Coast" UFO style crunchy instrumental. Lovedrive- practically a Scorpions rewrite of "Lights Out" by UFO. Intense singing from Klaus Meine. Get it now, its one of their best post Roth.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Some Reason I Want Play With Some Gummmm March 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Released in 1979, this album was a breaking point from the past Scorpions sound and world fame was just around the corner. This is the first album with Matthias Jabs and the 2nd album with Michael Schenker (he was on the Scorpions 1st album). Matthias Jabs initially began recording this album, but was let go when Michael became avalable after leaving UFO. Matthias would return for the tour for this album (Michael left to form his own band) and would stay for permanent on the next album. The future started here and it proved to be the correct path to follow. This is a CD that deserves its place in the music Valhalla because it gave a new sound and fresh air to the stagnant rock scene at the time. Here are my ratings of the songs based out of 5 *****:

"Loving You Sunday Morning" - Guitar intro followed by heavy bass and surging guitars. Some fine solos from Jabs. Tremendous guitar solo to end the song. This song got alot of radio play during this time period. A fantastic hard rock song that in sound and style was way ahead of its peers at the time. A classic metal song that sets the stage for the '80s. I love this song because it's great, and you'll think so too! Rating - *****

"Another Piece Of Meat" - the fastest and hardest song on the album. Opens at a breakneck pace and then changes tempo during the chorus into a heavy drum/cymbal combo with thumping bass. Great playing from Michael Schenker (as if that's a surprise). "Hey lets go, Don't put on a show. You're just another piece, another piece of meat." That's what they all say isnt it? Another classic metal song with great singing as usual from Klaus. This song also got some airplay. A fore-runner of future metal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chaos spawns best album. . . June 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The 1979 album "Lovedrive" by Scorpions is a tremendous effort, seemingly fueled by conflict, chaos, desperation, and fraternity, that rises to a level just short of perfection.
In 1978 Scorpions were in a rebuilding year, having just issued a pink slip to lead guitarist Ulrich Roth in an effort to retool their sound. The decision to jettison Roth (and all the Hendrix-ian baggage that came with him) was the first of many smart moves made by the band. Another was giving Rudolph Schenker more direct control over their music.
Before "Lovedrive" was completed, the band would hire, record with, fire, then rehire Matthias Jabs, as well as briefly rejoin with Michael Schenker (Rudolph's brother, who had just fled UFO) in what many fans have called the dream line up for Scorpions.
Given the tumultuous circumstances under which the album was recorded, it's a minor miracle the album is any good at all. "Lovedrive" however is a four star effort and I believe the best album ever made by Scorpions. Song writing, both musical and lyrical, are prime, and the group emotes all over this album without sounding ridiculous or tired.
The frantically paced classic "Another Piece of Meat"(boy meets girl, love goes wrong at Tokyo kick boxing match), the misogynistic title tune "Lovedrive"(girl-loves-guy/guy-loves-Porsche), and the fantastic "I Can't Get Enough" (or "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Hard Rock") are the three stand out numbers that efficiently showcase the strengths of Scorpions, effectively translating their live vibe onto disc. Thankfully, Scorpions retained Michael's solos on two aforementioned songs ("Meat" and "Drive") and on a third "Coast to Coast" despite his departure, making this a very interesting album.
