I was a tad behind in my Scorpions collection and had not bought the regular edition of Acoustica yet. Imagine my surprise when the Official Scorpions web site sent me an image, track listing and link to this Platinum Edition. Of course the link was to Amazon.com and the price was reasonable.
Well, I must say I am impressed. It's a cool 2 CD set in a slip box. It was made in Thailand. Yes, the imprint on the back is Warner Music Thailand and the video footage was shot by a Thai television film crew.
The 43:20 second video played great on my Windows Media Player9. It's a DAT file and you it's not like Quick Time or RP vids.
That being said the video has astounding quality and sound. OH! I also was able to play disc 2 in my RCA DVD Player. Most Excellent!
The interview with (only 2 members of) The Scorpions is in English with Thai Sub-titles. At times the interviewer speaks to the audience in Thai so what he is saying is lost on us.
That being said the performance footage is fantastic. The interview is good. This was filmed in Portugal in Feb 2001 when Acoustica was being done. There is a lot of behind the scense footage. It's a real treat for the fans.
The Scorpions used extra musicians for the 'Acoustica' shows. A (nationally known) Cellist from Portugal, a keyboardist, some extra guitars and three back-up singers!. The songs are given carefulo new arrangements. Even a hard number like 'The Zoo' works well in this setting.
(The Scorpions played 3 Acoustica shows in early Feb, 2001. Most nights featured over 20-25 songs. With this set you get 18.)
A cool cover song is Kansas' "Dust In The Wind". I really enjoyed it being in this set list, but I am not a fan of Kansas. A 2nd surprise cover song is "Drive". Yes, this is the song from The Cars.

This CD was quite a surprise --- actually, I shouldn't say that I was surprised because I find everything that the Scorpions do as wonderfully creative and entertaining. This CD, however, really shows the Scorpions at their best in many respects. They are indeed a rock band -- in my opinion, the BEST rock band -- but on this outing they prove that they don't need amps and power chords to get their message across. What you get instead is pure Scorpions glory. Songs such as "Holiday" and "Still Loving You" have been rearranged as total acoustic numbers and they are absolutely gorgeous. I don't know that I will ever be able to listen to "Holiday" any other way from now on. The band covers "Dust in the Wind" and they blow Kansas away -- which is really saying something. The song literally brought tears to my eyes.
The music fabulously showcases the songwriting talents of Rudolf and Klaus and the fantastic musical abilities of the entire band. The acoustic guitars are backed up by subtle drumming, a cellist, bass guitar and keyboards. It is almost a cross between their "plugged" music and the Berlin Orchestra Concert. Without the power normally generated through their amps, the Scorpions show us what they are all about -- good music. These guys aren't just rockers -- they are first class musicians (obviously classically trained) and the melodies are entrancing. I guarantee that true Scorpions fans will be almost moved to tears with the sheer beauty of the instruments "singing together" in perfect harmony.
I get upset reading reviews that say "the Scorpions went downhill" or they "sold old" and changed their style. Those reviewers are not Scorpions fans -- they are fans of particular songs.

If you want Heavy Scorpions, this is not the Cd for you!
If your a fan of the Scorps Ballads then go ahead and Buy this one. If you think that Acoustical sets should all be heavy and loud, this your mistaken, Scorps finally have a way of showing us the raw talent of Rudolph and Mathias, and of course Klauss vocals are flawless.
Some new songs and some new versions of old songs of course,
and some delightful suprise covers of a few of the greats like "Dust in the Wind" and "Drive" Both songs respectably done with taste and original depth.
Over all......Scorpions have put together something very original with their talents, and I am very pleased!!

Call this the Scorpions version of an MTV Unplugged album. You CANT go wrong with this one. Meine's vocals really stand out. Versions of several well-known numbers here are just great. The arrangement of "rock you like a hurricane" is interesting. The cover of Queen's "love of my life" is good, and this is coming from a die-hard Queen fan. It makes you wish Freddie was still here to have done this himself. Also covered is Kansas' "dust in the wind" - and likewise, having seen Kansas live, I can say this version does justice to it, I prefer this up-tempo one. Aside from some hits, the lesser known (to most americans) songs here are executed nicely. This CD scores as many points as their orchestral rock album "moment of glory". Buy it.

If you like this CD (or maybe especially if you didn't like it) see the excellent DVD!
18 great arrangements of Scorpions' classics + three cover versions of Kansas(Dust in the Wind), Queen(Love of my life) and the Cars(Drive).
Great video quality, shot with 12 cameras, excellent sound (DTS)!
Maybe a good reason to buy a DVD player .....
