First off let me repeat what another reviewer has said of this cd. This is not The Scorpions that put out songs such as "Rock You Like A Hurricane" or "No One Like You"! Granted several of the original members (Klause Meine, and Rudolf Schenker) remianed in the band but that's it. This cd represents a very young Scorpions. I hear some Black Sabbath influences from the then young guitarist extroardinaire Michael Schenker (16 years old). The drums and bass section in this band are the best that I've heard from The Scorpions. I agree with the above reviewer in that Wolfgang Dziony is a better drummer than Herman Rarebell and bassist Lothar Heimberg is a terrific bass player. Too bad these memebers didn't remain with The Scorpions throughout their RCA label days. I still prefer The 70's sounding Scorpions over the eighties rock they created. Albums such as "Fly To The Rainbow", "In Trance", and "Virgin Killer" are classics. Too bad RCA here in the U.S. doesn't get on the ball and remaster and re-issue those cd's. Now back to this cd. Songs such as the title track "Lonesome Crow"( at over 13 mins. long) are very guitar driven and the song itself is progressive in The Jethro Tull vein. Another standout cut is "In Search Of The Piece Of Mind". This is an acoustic guitar driven track with Klause Meine sounding topnotch as ever and Michael Schenker as usual adds his special guitar touch. The song "I'm Going Mad" has a nice chant at the beginning with Meine's vocals reduced somewhat. The chant continues through most of the song. And I can't help but hear that Tony Iommi (Black Sabbath) guitar influence in Schenker's playing. The remaining songs are also excellent but I repeat this cd is not for everyone. If you enjoy progressive and unusual sounding rock then pick this classic up before it becomes deleted. Highly recommended.

A far cry from the BLACKOUT and LOVEDRIVE sound, LONESOME CROW is definately an original on it's own. Some may even call it a masterpiece. This isn't for every Scorpions fan out there, it's an album that is dark, heavy, soulful, and down right bizarre. At the time of it's release, the Jimi Hendrix and the blues/jazz sound really dominated the airwaves and had a great effect on rock-n-roll. This is definately prevolent through out every track. This album showcases the incredible amount of talent each member possessed, especially Michael Schneker. Never on any UFO or MSG album have you heard Michael unleash his musical wizardry like this. The title track, "Action" and "It All Depends" highlights Michael's musical brilliance. Definately some of his best solos ever. The vocals of Klaus Meine are also something to behold. "I'm Goin' Mad" really shows off what Meine was made of before the commercial sound of the 80's. This album is a must have.

There was an interesting book published a few years back entitled "Riff Kills Man." It was an exhaustive series of reviews for about a thousand hard rock/heavy metal albums. I agreed with the author on virtually every review. I then read his review of the Scorpions' first-ever album "Lonesome Crow." He royally ripped the album. I threw the book in the trash.
"Lonesome Crow" is a strange sort of musical madness. It has NO resemblance to anything else done by the Scorpions. Other than Meine's vocals, nothing will sound Scorpionsesque. And even the vocals are a different sort of primal angst.
I've often thought that so much of the monumental brilliance which can be attributed to the Beatles and the Stones has as its origin the post-World War II vibe which must have permeated England: a renewed sense of hope, optimism, a sense of thankfulness that they all survived Hitler and his menace. It was an environment of rebirth and expansion. The vibe and environment in Germany would have been the flip side: regret, dread, guilt, shame. Now, obviously, the members of the Scorpions would have been too young to have had any first-hand involvement in the War, but they grew up in a country which was getting re-oriented to its new role in the world. "Lonesome Crow" seems to capture some of the dark malaise and anger which must have consumed many young people who were born into all the turbulence.
I envision the album being recorded in some old warehouse which had twenty-some years earlier withstood the bombing as the manufacture of daggers and medals continued unabated within its thin corrugated steel walls. The Flying-V became an acceptable metaphor for rage and power and ambition as Germans with real weapons were anathema.

I was stunned but estatic to see so many Lonesome Crow Reviews. I became a fan around the Animal Magnetism era, own every studio album (and like them all more or less) & have seen them 6 times in concert. But, with 30+ years under their belts I concluded that L.Crow is a true masterpiece. A one of a kind that literally transports the listener to a different dimension of time and space (as much if not more than the best Pink Floyd it seems & I love P.F.)

This album is a true time capsule of the early 70's. A period that didn't care about top 40 radio hits. It's hauntingly beautiful, a work of art that leaves the listener in awe that the human race is capable of such creativity and grace. Oh, how I wish they could replicate the sounds again today on more albums but it seems to be a timecaspule of that era and that point in the Scorpions career where they weren't "trapped" commercially by their own success.

I wonder if the band gets nostalgic thinking about their youthful and idealistic youths when they made this album? If anyone knows how to contact the band, please give them my grateful thanks for creating this "not of this earth" piece of music which has certainly expanded my musical world. No LSD required. Oddly enough, last week while driving to work and listening to the title track, I came upon an actual "Lonesome Crow" in the street that was working on the carcass of some road kill. I found the irony a bit spooky and funny. The (heavy metal?) gods couldn't resist the joke I guess.
