Not one of the Scorps best albums but certainly one of their most commercially successful due to the massive 'Winds Of Change' single. Overall, a nice package, but where are the two missing tracks on the dvd? Both the cd sleeve and booklet list 'Big City Nights' and 'Rock You Like A Hurricane' as being the last two tracks of the 'Crazy World Live 1991' footage, but they're missing! The dvd menu doesn't list these two tracks and, suspiciously, the live concert footage simply fades to black after 'Lust Or Love' - no end credits! What's going on?

Scorpions are perhaps the paradigm of a band which got better with age. A progression which began with the enlisting of Matthias Jabs as lead guitarist led to 1984's breakthrough Love at First Sting, worldwide acclaim and the polish of Savage Amusement and the 1988 Monsters of Rock tour. By 1990 most of the band were in their 40s and should've been well past writing hit records by the standards of the rock playbook. Perhaps recognising this they terminated their successful long-term partnership with producer Dieter Dierks and brought in super producer Keith Olsen (Whitesnake) to give a new edge.

Well, it worked. What you have here is arguably one of the best rock albums of the era. Savage Amusement raised the bar but this breaks it. Olsen unleashes Jabs and Schenker, cranks up the distortion and showcases a blistering double guitar attack which is up there with the very best. The songwriting's not bad too. What Savage Amusement lacked, for all the brilliance of the likes of Passion Rules the Game and Every Minute Every Day, was the standout hit ballad. Everyone knew that was the sine qua non for a smash album and Wind of Change provided it. Criminally kept off the top spot here by Bryan Adams (!) the song chronicled the fall of the Iron Curtain and remains Germany's most popular song to this day. The danger of a huge hit is that you risk the stereotype of a one song album. If the crushing opening to Tease Me Please Me does not dispel this then the pace and energy of Lust or Love definitely will. Meine is at the top of his game as a vocalist and his lyrics resound of the excess and ecstasy of life in one of the world's biggest bands. The rhythm section plays its part too with some crunching bass lines (Restless Nights, Money and Fame) and pounding drum beats abound.

I confess that my first introduction to the Scorpions was via the overplayed power ballad 'Wind of Change', which blew me away, and I needed to hear more. As soon as I found that 'Crazy World' was the album which carried the single, I knew that this would have to be the one to purchase first. Although my tastes in music seem to change around year by year, I have recently started to dig this album out again after two years, and once again I am playing it regularly.

The Scorps' first album of the Nineties was also was the band's most commercially successful, and although I do own more (before this release, they made some real 'powerhouse rock'), I still regard it as the best effort, with songs that flow very well together. Best cuts are the melodic ballad 'Send Me An Angel', the energetic 'To Be With You In Heaven', the angry yet romantic 'Don't Believe Her', and the heavy rockers 'Tease Me Please Me', and 'Lust or Love'. Oh yeah, and *that* hit song is also very good.

If you want an introduction to the Scorpions that isn't one of the many greatest hits packages which have issued over the years, 'Crazy World' is the one to try out first. You can never go wrong with these German rockers, what with their tasty guitar playing, catchy riffs, and this fantastic record.

This is my 'random play' album .It doesnt matter what comes next its all good. I love the production -Keith Olsen got it just right. From the stadium shaking 'tease me please me' to 'The Zoo'-like 'restless nights'
Kicks after 6 is cheesy BUT its written by Matthias Jabs(who never gets a look in) and the solo is fabulous.
'Hit between the eyes' yes it really does -saw this done live and its brilliant.
Lust or love thunders along with some descent riffery in the back ground.
Money and Fame smoulders with the inevitable 'vocoder/voicebox 'guitar (guitar in to amp then amp output down a tube into guitarist mouth he then speaks in to a mike using the guitar to make the sound .This song has the feel of china white from blackout.Dirty and I love it .
'Crazy world ' is a thunderous railroad train with great guitar fills and a bit of a message.
'They spent our money on missiles
For the third world war
Now they're stacked in my backyard
We don't need them no more'

Wind of change- i like it but sadly ironic that this was the hit they will be remembered for.
'send me an angel' i can listen to this without going - urgh ! Not cheesy just a good song.

If you want to know what the scorpions are all about this is agood place to start.

I know that five-star reviews make you feel suspicious nowadays.... However, I'm really into rock music and I don't think I've ever bought any albums I don't like... And when I like albums, rating them as five-star ones sounds the only natural thing to me. Now here we have an excellent album penned by the Scorps and you know they have been around for 50 years, so they really know how to deliver the goods. This album was one and only favorite of mine right after the classic ones like Virgin Killer, In Trance, Animal Magnetism, Blackout or Love at First Sting because of its pure energy. I also loved seeing them on stage promoting it and I don't think any self-respecting rocker would say that they aren't giving a 200% show on stage. As usual the album is full of ear-catching songs and melodies as well... So just sit back, relax and enjoy this excellent music.
