It's hard to find fault with such a successful album; the Scorpions were already a big name in the rock world, but 'Love at First Sting' propelled them into the major league, making them one of the biggest hard rock acts of not just the mid-Eighties but of all time. Released five years after Uli Jon Roth had departed and the classic Scorpions line-up had been born, 'Love at First Sting' was a solid combination of hard rocking mentality, heavy metal excess, commercial sensibility and the honest creativity of five talented musicians.

However, despite its popularity, 'Love at First Sting' is not without flaws. It holds several classic Scorpions tunes, including what is undoubtedly their finest power ballad - 'Still Loving You', but it's also peppered with filler material, half-baked tunes that pass the listener by and fail to stick in the mind. Hence, at the time, 'Love at First Sting' was considered to be arguably the weakest album made by the definitive quintet of Klaus Meine, Rudolph Schenker, Matthias Jabs, Francis Buchholz and Herman Rarebell.

It's starts impressively enough; 'Bad Boys Running Wild' is a brooding, menacing hard rocker let down only by its somewhat ridiculous title and 'Rock You like a Hurricane' is a triumphant slab of metal, ticking all the right boxes (dodgy lyrics, sing-a-long chorus and fiery guitar solo). The band scored a significant hit in the US with this single, enough for it to get a mention in an episode of The Simpsons. Third track 'I'm Leaving You' is a delight, with it's rather wistful but upbeat tone and 'Coming Home' became the perfect live set opener, the gentle intro creating a perfect contrast to the bombastic metal onslaught of the main song.

Having the unenviable task of following BLACKOUT and its 2 illustrious predecessors,this album was always going to struggle...in fact there were some lukewarm reviews and one well known critic at the time called it 'complete and utter sh*te', a bit harsh i thought.

Whilst not as good,in my opinion, as the previous three,it still contained 5 bona fide classics,'Bad Boys Running Wild','Comin Home','Big City Nights'.'Rock You Like A Hurricane' and of course 'Still Loving You'.

Once again excellent remastered sound,packaging and booklet,the demo's are decent and worth hearing.Interestibg that this has been released as a 3 disc package,maybe they knew it needed a little bit extra.. so we get Disc 2 Scorpions live and raw in New York, while not as polished as WORLD WIDE LIVE,its another excellent live document of aband at the top of its game and peak of their career.

Disc 3 a collection of promo videos and tv performances,worth the occasional watch,scorpion promo video's dont age well, ha ha.

The original album would have gotten 4 stars ,this collection is worth 5, buy and enjoy.

Ol' Klause always did have a fine voice. Never more so on the standout track here. 'Still Loving You' is by far their best ballad (and I use that word advisedly) ever.
This isn't any wimp-out job of later years, but a slow building, heart-rending, cry from the heart, slowly but surely reaching it's climax of screaming, wailing guitar and emotion drenched, pleading voice. What a way to end an album! Quite frankly any rock band would give their all to write this type of rock-ballad.
So what of the preceding stuff? All present and correct, sir! 'Bad Boys Running Wild', 'Rock You Like A Hurricane', 'Coming Home', 'Big City Nights', & 'The Same Thrill' - their rocksong-for-the-heck-of-it track.
Not exactly high-brow music but very emotive. Not only that it's wonderfully fabulous!!

Classic album by one of the great rock bands who seem to be overlooked at times.
I bought this mainly due to the bonus discs especially the live at MSG disc which is awesome. Much like World Wide Live but a welcome addition to collection. They certainly know how to rock!
The other bonus songs of demos etc is very interesting to hear embryonic forms of songs such as Still Loving You & Coming Home. All add to the original versions. Of course the songs such as Bad Boys Running Wild, Rock You Like A Hurricane & Big City Nights are classic Scorpions...on fire!
The dvd disc is welcome for some music videos & TV appearances. Remember the 80s...well must go & dig out the spandex!
