4.0 out of 5 stars The Sting is Back
Finally, after more than twenty years, the Scorpions have released an album of genuine quality! Predecessor `Unbreakable' gave fans renewed hope after many years of disappointing albums, but there were still throwaway numbers among the great hard rockers. And though no song on `Humanity' will force its way into the canon of Scorpions classics, almost every one is a...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Desmond Child again
In the CD booklet it tells us that this is a concept album about "a world torn apart by a civil war between humans and robots". That may well scare you off but, despite the Terminator-style concept, it's not a bad album. Desmond Child (of Meat Loaf, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith fame) provided the concept and co-wrote many of the songs. I'm not sure why Desmond Child was brought...

4.0 out of 5 stars I never thought I'd see the day when I'd give The Scorpions 4 stars again, 14 Nov 2007
This review is from: Humanity - Hour I (Audio CD)
The Scorpions haven't released a great album since Lovedrive, 28 ... yes 28 years ago and despite the best efforts of Meine, Schenker and Jabs, they haven't got close. Although Blackout was not a bad effort. The stench from the winds of change still linger, but this (I have to say) is a good album ... actually it's a really good album. But not great. The opening and closing tracks 'Hour 1' and 'Humanity' are the high points with the seemingly ageless Klaus sounding better than ever. It sags a bit in the middle like an old mattress, but there's enough spring either side to make it comfortable. Fillers such as 'We were born to fly' can go for a start, as can 'Your last song'. 'Love will keep us alive' and 'Love is war' holding together the middle order batting.

Its quite amazing that they can still pull material out of the bag like this after 35 years as The Scorpions and who knows, maybe the next one will be Lovedrive 2. So all in all they get a 4 star review. Well done chaps. And as for THAT song ... I'm currently 'Wind of Change' champion in our house for PS2 SingStar Rocks with a score of 8320! Its still a crap song though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scorpions back to their best!!!!!!, 9 Sep 2007

Bytor (Edinburgh, Scotland) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Humanity - Hour I (Audio CD)
Who cares who co-wrote the songs - every track is great with at least 6 of the 12 tracks absolute belters. I've been a bit disappointed with the Scorpions since Lovedrive but this album is superb and the production top-notch. Go buy it!
