Editorial Reviews

Product Description

1988 album by popular German rockers Scorpions. Can be hard to find, out of print at times.

Four years after turning the radio market upside-down with the double platinum success of Love at First Sting, the Scorpions had lost much of their sting. Maybe it was the success of the sentimental love ballad "Still Loving You" that convinced Klaus and the boys to slow their stride and soften their tune, but the release of Savage Amusement was nothing short of a disappointment to fans that craved the high-octane intensity of the group's earlier work. "Don't Stop at the Top" may have insinuated that Scorpions were still hungry and aggressive, but songs like the lackluster "Rhythm of Love" and the sappy "Passion Rules the Game" indicated that their bellies were full and they were tired. --Jon Wiederhorn

Let's start looking at the time this album was released...Hair Metal ruled the rock scene in the late 80's, with a lot of ridiculous hype bands raising the hit parades, and the "appice" of this "movement" was the Def Leppard's
album "Hysteria" (1987),where the band sold millions of copies of this underrated album...Scorpions' last hit was "Still Loving You"(one of the best rock ballads ever), and I think that the pression was very strong to the band repeat the success on "Savage Amusement",so...That album has the shape of Hair Metal(take a look on the back cover - they're looking like Def Leppard or Bon Jovi - ARGHHH!!!),the production points this way all the time and this album, at first, has everything to be the worst Scorpions' album...but it is NOT!!! Incredibly, they recorded the best Hair Metal album I've ever hearded!!! It's serious...Def Leppard,Bon Jovi and Poison don't have Klaus Meine
on vocals neither Rudolf Schencker on compositions and Mathias Jabs kickin' ass on solo guitars!!! Try listen without prejudice to this album (don't look at the back cover and don't watch the video clips, please), and what you'll hear is the great melody and sensibility of this GREAT rock band...An exemple: the solo in the introduction of "Believe In Love"...the shape used on the recording was pure Hair Metal, but take a "look" deeper in the's beautiful!!!Listen carefully to Klaus' vocals in "Walking On The Edge" and "Believe In Love"'s beatiful!!!Listen to the song "Rhythm of Love"'s a rock masterpiece!!! "Don't Stop At The Top" is a strong rock song; "Passion Rules The Game" and "Every Minute Every Day" are slow rock songs like only Scorpions know how to do; "Love On The Run" is more fast and aggressive than the other songs,with an almost-punk beat; "We Let It Rock...

I know that the Scorpions' albums from this era aren't universally loved, and that longtime fans in particular were not pleased by the band's crossover into more radio friendly territory, but for those of us who discovered the Scorpions in the mid to late 80's, these are the albums that define the band's sound.

Case in point - 1988's Savage Amusement. Coming on the heels of the monster hit Love at First Sting, Savage Amusement finds the band continuing their arena rocking heavy metal sound. This is a first rate 80's metal album all the way. Hearing Rudolf Schenker's guitar work on this album reminds me of a skilled surgeon at work. He just gets in there and cuts with incredible precision. This first rate metal guitar work makes it much easier to overlook the band's love-obsessed lyrical content. And of course there are Klause Meine's unique and powerful vocals. I can't imagine ever hearing the term "German metal" and NOT immediately thinking of Meine's voice. Savage Amusement doesn't have a super anthem on par with Rock You Like a Hurricane here, but there are plenty of great rockers, including Don't Stop at the Top, Passion Rules the Game, and Media Overkill. The album also features two of the band's bigger hits in Rhythm of Love and the sappy ballad Believe in Love. I can see how these kinds of songs could put off some fans, but overall this is a very hard rocking album, ballads or not.

Love at First Sting is the better album, but Savage Amusement comes pretty close. It's a great example of the Scorpions sound in the 80's, and 20 years later remains one of my favorite albums from that era.

I can care less for the many reviews that slam this Album. Too much comparing to the other Albums that preceded Savage Amusement! At the time Savage Amusement came out I was 18 years old, I was young and more or less loving the big 80's hair band movement. This became my favorite Tape to listen to at the time, if there were a fire in my house at the time, I would save this copy above all the rest of them.
Times do change......and so do the Scorpions! They in my opinion CAN Afford to be creative with their music! They CAN Afford to Blend with the times! Over 30 years of being the best in what they do......They Rock.....they write some of the best Ballads in the Business, they are the best on stage in front of an audience......Savage Amusement if you have to compare with the rest of their CD not the best received by critics or Audience, but I cannot imagine Not having this added to my collection simply because a few people don't think it is Scorpions best material......simply put......if your a Scorpions fan and remember the 80's gracefully, "Savage Amusement" is something you cannot pass up! Every song works well with each other.......Every song is one that can be heard over and over. I own almost every Scorpions Cd (with the exception of "Taken by Force" and Tokyo Tapes"....both of which I did at one point own on Cassette and wore both out).
I never write a review unless it is a Possitive one, This review is an overwelmingly Possitive outlook for Savage Amusement.....My Favorite songs from this album at the time it was released is "Don't Stop at the Top" and "Walking on the Edge" But like I said....every song is a good one! So take this review as others with a Grain of Salt and judge for yourself! Its all in how you percieve it and how it touches you personaly!
