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

This album will not disappoint life long Scorps fans (such as myself) and it will (hopefully) draw in a lot of new, younger fans. However, I think it is important to listen to the CD more than once to truly appreciate the effort the guys put into creating this great collection of music.

First and foremost, let it be said that the MUSIC is flawless THROUGHOUT the CD. The compositions are pulsing, pounding, rhythmic (yet melodic) masterpieces. Absolutely CLASSIC Scorps guitar work with solid drumming from James Kottak and great bass-playing from Pawel Maciwoda and assorted "guest bassists". There isn't one negative thing I can say about the musical composition or actual playing. This music WILL make you move!

That being said .. after my first "listen" to the lyrics, I gave three songs an "A+" right away: "Maybe I Maybe You"; "Someday Is Now" and "Remember the Good Times". James Kottak does some of the writing on this CD and his lyrics add a lot to the mix. His off-beat style is perfect to keep the Scorps "up to date". Fans of the 1980's group "The Hooters" will recognize the name Eric Bazilian who contributes to "Remember the Good Times" which is one of the best Scorps tunes I've ever heard. (still love ya Eric!)

Initially, I thought the other songs ranged from "quite good" to "pretty good" .. until I listened to the CD a second time. Klaus' own backing harmonies are fantasic and songs that sounded a little "rhymie dimie" the first time around really grew on me almost immediately. "She Said" is a gorgeous ballad, "Love Em or Leave Em" has a great beat and great harmonies and "New Generation" is a foot stomper.

The Scorps are back with a real good, rockin' album. No, they will never make another Black Out or Love At First Sting, but this album is as good as we could expect, especially from a band that is trying to appeal to such a global market. I think that if they were trying to please only the USA fans, some of the songs would have been different. Like the Stones, The Who, etc, the band's best days are behind them; BUT, this new album is closer to what we love about the Scorpions than anything we've heard from them in 14 years.
The album's opening track, "New Generation", leaves no room for doubt that the Scorps can still rock. Immediately, we hear the symbiotic guitar work of Rudolf Schenker's heavy riffing with Matthias Jabs' six-string-sting lead, in what will be a new Scorpions classic. This sets the tone for the rest of the album. Here's my take on the rest of the songs:
"Love `Em of Leave `Em - straight ahead rocker, cool riffs, I bet it'll come off live real good.
"Deep And Dark" - one of the best songs on the album, heavy guitars, killer riffs, great chorus
"Borderline" - mid tempo rocker, good verse sections, really generic chorus, overall not bad
"Blood Too Hot" - Fast rocker, sounds like it was written to play live, still a little generic
"Maybe I, Maybe You" - starts off slow and sappy (with some random guy playing piano) but builds into an amazing triple meter ( a la Hendrix's "Manic Depression") rocking tune! They should have started this song differently but it ends up being another one of the best tracks.

Unfortunately I'm old enough to have bought Fly To The Rainbow as an original vinyl issue, but am lucky enough to have enjoyed Scorpions from their inception. While my favorite period for the band started with "Taken By Force" and carried through to "Animal Magnetism", this band has always delivered quality material.

"Unbreakable" is no exception. Strong songs with impeccable musicianship and top shelf vocals (Klaus hasn't lost a thing) make this record a must for Scorpion fans who've enjoyed material from their 80s releases forward. Those into the Uli John Roth era stuff or indulging lead guitar work of "Lovedrive" will probably not like it as much.

On "Unbreakable" The Scorps are playing to the environment of today's music scene with concise songs, that feature strong choruses and minimal lead guitar work. Thankfully they stop there and don't try to hard to sound like many of today's artists because quite frankly, these senior citizens blow away ninety percent of what's available to today's kids.

Send a message to the record industry morons that this is worth shelling out cash for by buying this record.

I was pleasantly surprised when I first heard this cd. There are plenty of catchy songs. My favs are New G, Deep & Dark, Blood Too Hot, Through My Eyes, She Said, and Remember the GT. At first I would have given this cd 4.5 or 5 stars but after a while I got tired of some of the songs. I put this album among the Scorps top ten though. It is better than anything they have done since LAFS. I'm glad to hear the Scorps are still going strong! This cd is worth getting.
