5.0 out of 5 stars scorpions:acoustica
this is an excellent introduction for anyone new to the music of the german group "scorpions".this album is a project of live work by the band recorded in portugal and it displays the excellent musicicianship of each member of the group.i was new to their music but this album is a great opportunity to hear re-arrangements of their best known songs -as well as one or two...

1.0 out of 5 stars Should be laws against this
The best Scorpions albums get the blood pumping, the foot tapping or the heart melting; on their best tracks all these things happen at once. On `Acoustica', nothing happens...for over an hour.
Good acoustic albums offer a new sound to established songs; while slow numbers, especially ballads, are most obviously suited to the format, it's wonderful to hear a band...

5.0 out of 5 stars scorpions:acoustica, 6 July 2003
This review is from: Acoustica Asian Only (Audio CD)
this is an excellent introduction for anyone new to the music of the german group "scorpions".this album is a project of live work by the band recorded in portugal and it displays the excellent musicicianship of each member of the group.i was new to their music but this album is a great opportunity to hear re-arrangements of their best known songs -as well as one or two cover versions of other songs such as the cars "drive" and freddy mercury's"love of my life".the guitar work is excellent by rudolph schenker and the vocals by klaus meine has a wide range.this is an excellent"unplugged"type of album both melodic and rock in nature.an album which gets better with each play.

the title of the review says it....this is the scorpions at their best.

"Life is too Short" - Must be the best version across the whole of the Scorpions set.
"The Zoo" - once opened with this, they know they will keep you interested..
"Send Me an Angel" - this album is it...

buy it, listen, enjoy.

I do my decorating with this lp on repeat...

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Live Album, 9 Jan 2012
This review is from: Acoustica (Audio CD)
This is a great slice of live music from Germany's greatest ever rock band. Klaus Meine's vocals are superb ,as is Schenker's and Jabs's acoustic guitar work. Infact the whole ensemble is outstanding. This being an acoustic concert shows this band is very versatile. Well worth buying .

This review is from: Acoustica (Audio CD)
one of my pals when he heard this album in my car said wow this is the best song ever speaking about wind of change .. for me this is one of the best albums ever for the German kings they made this album at the time when everyone was doing gigs with acoustic guitars and leaving the lead at home but scorpions did it with style in a powerful way they did what others tried to reach . what made this album special is that they had played all the fans fav then added a couple of killer covers .. and dust in the wind made many fans buy the dvd for .. buy it

5.0 out of 5 stars Great concert, 6 Nov 2011
This review is from: Acoustica (Audio CD)
I was really happy to find this CD on amazon, there were no other chance for me to buy this really great album for half a year.
Now it is time to get the video :))
The old rock band made a very interesting concept with unique atmosphere - acoustic. If anyone has a doubt what the rock is just listen to this album...

4.0 out of 5 stars good accoustic effort., 4 Aug 2012

This review is from: Acoustica (Audio CD)
At this point the band needed a hard rock cd. we had the scorps with a orchestra cd and two average rockers from them , they did return with a vengence to hard rock though. This is a fine accoustic release though with the band doing most of their hits accoustically and they sound quite pretty here. So if you like accoustic music then grab this one and if you are a scorps fan you need this one in your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars A must have gem, 9 Nov 2009
By 
This review is from: Acoustica Asian Only (Audio CD)
I am an old school Scorpions fan who rejoices still listening to Lovedrive, Animal Magnetism and Blackout their 3 most standout albums in my opinion.Buying Acoustica was an easy purchase as it showcases Klaus Meine voice so beautifully. The cross section of songs from there incredible career is covered here. My favourite being the opening the Zoo which like nearly all the songs on this disc translated perfectly to acoustic format.
A must have purchase for any old classic rocker like myself!
