Metallica were the first to use the Philarmonic... But Scorpions know how to play with! Metallica used the orchestra as accompaniment, and Scorpions used it as a member of the band... The songs are really different, and the orchestra really gives a different view of the Scorpions art... I particulary like Hurricane 2000, Send me an Angel, Wind of Change and Crossfire. The guitar solos are still outstanding and really impressive. Just one song didn't take me to the 7th sky: Moment of Glory. Last but not least, the Zucchero participation on Send me an Angel really impressed me! When I first listened to this album, in a shop, I didn't move from there for 1 hour: it was so good. A must to buy if you like music!
