  • Love At First Sting was the Scorpions’ most successful album in the U.S. and remains their strongest album. Although Savage Amusement would chart higher on the charts and their biggest hit “Wind Of Change” appeared on Crazy World, Love At First Sting was their best album featuring their strongest collection of songs.This album features an equal balance of heavier tracks, catchy metal driven by memorable riffs, and power ballads, and most of them are top notch. The acoustic turned heavy rocker “Coming Home” is one of the strongest tracks and was the opening song for many of their live shows. “Rock You Like A Hurricane” would be one of their biggest hits and remains their signature song. The ballad “Still Loving You” remains one of the best of the metal era and features some excellent passionate soloing from lead guitarist Matthias Jabs. Tracks like “Big City Nights”, “Bad Boys Running Wild”, and “I’m Leaving You” are all very strong, featuring excellent melodies penned by rhythm guitarist Rudolf Schenker. The lesser known songs are also very good, particularly the anti-war track “Crossfire”, driven by Herman Rarebell’s hypnotic march beat and “As Soon As The Good Times Roll.” An excellent album. Highly recommended to fans of great ’80s melodic metal.
