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.
