“While we were working on our album these past few months, we could literally feel how powerful and creative our work was–and how much fun we were still having, in the process,” says SCORPIONS lead singer KLAUS MEINE about the band’s new album STING IN THE TAIL. “We want to end the SCORPIONS’ extraordinary career on a high note.

On this compilation, we get 31 of their best tracks plus 2 Bonus songs. Most of these songs are their greatest hits and the others are just wonderful songs. What they did was take all the albums from 1979 up to 1993 and take the best tracks off them and put them all together on this compilation. If you heard a Scorpions song and Liked it, chances are it's on here. This compilation features the best songs like "Rock you like a hurricane", "The Zoo", "Wind of change", "Rhythm of Love" and more. This compilation is in my opinion the best Scorpions Compilation there is, if you only buy one of them, I strongly recommend this one.

Format: Audio CD
In 1989 Mercury Records in America and Harvest/EMI in Europe published the 1st official compilation of Scorpions: "Best Of Rockers 'N' Ballads". However this one was incomplete as it didn't include the hits of the 90s. Probably this premature best-of was released because the contract of the european label with the group would expire soon.

In 1997 Mercury decided to publish another greatest hits of the band in the United States: "Deadly Sting: The Mercury Years". This new compilation is much better than the previous one, as it includes all their world wide hits of the 80s and 90s: "No One Like You", "Rock You Like A Hurricane", "Still Loving You", "Wind Of Change" and "Send Me An Angel".

Every song included in this two-disc compilation are pretty good, although there are some tracks that surprised me: "Holiday", "Under The Same Sun", "Woman" and the two previously unreleased. Besides, the tracklist are ordered chronologically.

The booklet is impressive. This includes a lot of full-colour photos of the band, interesting liner-notes explaining their history, detailed discography, album credits, etc.

My only little complaint about this compilation is the low sound. And perhaps a single-disc compilation would have been more accepted. Otherwise, I think this is the best compilation of Scorpions you can buy.

Great compilation, but not a definitive one 18 May 2000
By JM Sjöbohm - Published on
Format: Audio CD
First of all, a small correction to the editorial review: Lovedrive is the 6th studio album, and 7th album overall. The previous releases (RCA Records) are:
1972 Lonesome Crow 1974 Fly to the Rainbow 1975 In Trance 1976 Virgin Killer 1978 Taken by Force 1978 Tokyo Tapes (live)
Now, this compilation has all of their commercial and worldwide succesful songs, plus some of the finest album cuts of the band. It's definitive (rather excesive) for the casual fans , but for hardcore Scorpions fans it's not representative of their whole career (They started in 1969) This is a better compilation than Best of Rockers and Ballads, since it also includes their 90's hits. It's a good starting point for this specific era of the band of commercial success.
If you're more interested in Scorpions 'the cult european metal band' you should check the compilations BEST OF and BEST OF Vol. 2 by RCA Records. They're currently out of print, but the music there (that includes virtuoso guitarist Uli Jon Roth) worth the search.
If you're the kind of fan who's searching ONLY the hits, you should try the european single disc compilation BEST, released recently.

Excellent choice for First time Scorpion listners. 21 July 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This CD covers a wide range of the hits of the Scorpions and is a great choice for a "Most-Own" Scorpions CD. It goes as far back as the "In Trance" album and has excellent live cuts.

Much better than "Best of Rockers N' Ballads" 6 Mar 2002
By The Scenario - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I disagree slightly with Jon Weiderhorn's review. "Face The Heat" was not a "comeback of sorts", nor was "Crazy World" sloppy. It was "Crazy World" that was in fact the comeback the Scorpions had been waiting for, producing their biggest hit ever, "Wind of Change". I will agree that the Scorp's post '84 output has been at times mediocre. "Rhythm of Love", "Tease Me, Please Me", "Don't Believe Her" and "Alien Nation" aspire for greatness but instead invoke boredom. But songs like "Passion Rules The Game", "Send Me An Angel", "Hit Between The Eyes" and "Under The Same Sun" reveal a band with a few more tricks in their bag. And their cover of the Who's "I Can't Explain" absolutely blows away the original (though to be fair, the Who's version was an early-60's monophonic recording). It was the only decent tune on the otherwise awful "Stairway To Heaven/Highway to Hell" compilation album from 1989, done under the guise of being an anit-drug album by Bon Jovi manager Doc McGhee after he got arrested for his own trafficking schemes.
As for the first disc, what else can you say? Near perfect. The only missing tunes are "Hey You" (unavailable on any of their studio albums) and "I'm Leaving You" (decent tune from "Love At First Sting", received a fair amount of airplay). A must for the 80's metal fan.

Be careful ordering "Import" version 13 May 2010
By Kevin K. Frick - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Be careful if you order the import of "Deadly Sting: The Mercury Years" since this is a single-disc version, even though Amazon repeats the description from the double-CD version. This is similar to the first disc in the double-CD version, with a few tracks from the second disc added and a different track order. The track listing for the import version is correct (yes I know, only 15 songs, I should have suspected a single disc). Boo to Electrola for using the same title and image as the double-CD domestic version for this.
