  • This is the album that contains the Scorpions best guitar playing ever courtesy of Uli Jon Roth. The track “Pictured Life” screams out of the blocks with a burst of harmony guitar lines and is carried forward by Rudolf Schenker’s abrasive rhythm work and Roth’s fast descending trills. “Catch your train” is an uptempo rocker that features Roth’s extremely fast sixteenth-note and blazing Mixolydian-mode runs. The best song is “In your Park” where Roth demonstrates the art of using arpeggios within a rock solo. Roth proves to be technically well ahead of his peers with this album. His style of playing didn’t enjoy widespread use until the mid eighties. If you like old school metal guitar, you’ll love this.
