"Pure Instinct" is the Scorpions best album of music since "Love at First Sting" was released in 1984. The album is strong in that it is full of songs that sound like different times in their twenty-five year career. Songs like "Where the River Flows" and "Time Will Call Your Name" have a flavor of the Uli Roth/Michael Schenker era. Songs like "Wild Child" and "Girl I want to be with You" have a flavor of their 1980's sound. While songs like "Does Anyone Know" and "Stone Inside my Shoe" exhibit their ability to establish new boundaries in their creativity.

I would say this is probably the Scorpions best studio album. The Song Wild Child is the best song in there. "But the best for you" is another great song. Does anyone know is more soft and emotional, so is "When you came into my life". You and I is the 2nd best song in that album. If you are a Scorpions fan, starting fan or long time fan, you should get this album.

THIS ALBUM IS HARD TO BEAT. THIS IS RIGHT UP THERE WITH "BEST OF ROCKERS N" BALLADS & "LOVE AT FIRST STING". THEIR GUITAR RIFFS ARE AMAZING AND THE VOCALS ARE PERFECT AS USUAL. THIS IS A MUST TO HAVE FOR EVERY SCORPIONS FAN

With 15 or 16 studio albums, [The] Scorpions are one of the best and longest enduring rock bands of all time. While their most memorable hits tend to be off of Love at First Sting, or Blackout, this album stands out, in my opinion as one of their overall best. The structure and composition of each song is amazing and shows maturity from their earlier albums. Whether it's a rock anthem like Wild Child, or more along the lines of a ballad (ie. Where the River Flows), the album is full of jewels and conveys the maturity, structure, and depth of one of the best rock groups of all time.

Too me the scorps never made a average release until 'face the heat' and then this one , which still has some wonderfully played songs on it. But there were just too many ballads on this one for me. The bite was gone here and I think 'eye to eye' was a stronger release than this one was. Still a average scorps cd is better than alot of other metal out there. like most thrash metal for instance.

Keeping my review short, this album has a little bit of everything from ballads to heavier tunes. I noticed that people have differing opinions on this one...in light of that, I would suggest listening to the previews of the songs before purchase. In my opinion, it is a great Scorpions album and a definite to have in your collection!

After putting out a dozen or so metal albums, the Scorpions seemed to mellow out with this one. I kept waiting for it to rock out, but it just doesn't (well, a little at times, but not like a regular Scorpions album). That said, the songs are GOOD. It's not burdened by a bunch of lame ballads like Aerosmith's 90's work. And it's still the Scorpions - they don't try to jump on the bandwagon of the "current" popular sound of the time, which is good for those of us who hated grunge and "Alternative"! There's a nice variety of feels, with some nice acoustic and keyboard work - reminiscent of some of their earlier songs like "Is There Anyone There" off LOVEDRIVE.
