Animal Magnetism is the seventh studio album by German rock band Scorpions, released in 1980. The RIAA certified the record as Gold on 8 March 1984, and Platinum on 28 October 1991. So, Scorpions were cool in the '70s and then popular in the '80s, not that you need anyone to tell you that, but it'll make things much quicker for you when deciding which albums to listen to. Animal Magnetism finds itself wedged fairly uncomfortably between the two talents of the band - those of writing fun, exciting hard rock songs and writing badass proto-metal songs. There's a little bit here for everybody and even the cover strikes a better note than that of Virgin Killer or Lovedrive without losing that dangerous sexual edge the Germans were aiming for.
Love at First Sting is the ninth studio album by the German rock band Scorpions. It was released on March 27, 1984 on Harvest/EMI and Mercury. It became the group's most successful album in the USA, where it peaked at number 6 on the Billboard 200 chart in 1984, and went double-platinum by the end of the year, reaching triple-platinum status in 1995. The song "Rock You Like a Hurricane" reached number 25 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the same year, "Still Loving You" reached number 64 on the same chart, number 14 in Germany, number 3 in the French and Swiss Top 50.
Scorpions are a German rock band formed in 1965 in Hanover by Rudolf Schenker. Since the band's inception, its musical style has ranged from hard rock to heavy metal. The lineup from 1978–92 was the most successful incarnation of the group, and included Klaus Meine (vocals), Rudolf Schenker (rhythm guitar), Matthias Jabs (lead guitar), Francis Buchholz (bass guitar), and Herman Rarebell (drums). The band's only constant member has been Schenker, although Meine has been the lead singer for all of the band's studio albums, and Jabs has been a consistent member since 1979…
In Trance is the third studio album by the German heavy metal band Scorpions, released in 1975, The album's music is a departure from the progressive Krautrock of the two previous albums in favor of the mainstream hard rock sound of shorter tighter arrangements with no extended suites in the vein of Lonesome Crow or Fly To The Rainbow.
Lonesome Crow is the debut album of the German heavy metal band Scorpions produced by Conny Plank and released in 1972. It was the very first LP released on BRAIN and has quite nothing to do with the later style of the band This is fine Krautrock / Prog with some Jazzy influences, quite harder then normal Krautrock. Recomended!
When the Scorpions finally broke through to the mainstream in 1982, RCA released numerous compilations of the band's earlier work from the '70s. By no means should one think The Best of the Scorpions is for diehards only – the music here is quite enjoyable. RCA would go on to release several more Scorpions compilations (Best Of, Vol. 2, Hot & Heavy, Best of Rockers 'n' Ballads, etc.), but the original Best Of is still the wisest purchase.
Formed in Germany right at the end of the sixties by guitarist Rudolf Schenker, the Scorpions released a number of successful albums in the seventies before exploding globally in the eighties and early nineties with hits such as Rock You Like A Hurricane and Wind Of Change.This concert was recorded in 2000 with the world famous Berliner Philharmoniker orchestra…
