Scorpions ~ Love At First Sting
Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
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.
to celebrate 50th Anniversary of scorpions LIVE onstage
one of these Deluxe edition's is scorpions 1984 album LOVE AT FIRST STING
there's 3 Discs in this foldout Digi-pak with a new booklet with rare photos & new liner notes
Disc 1 is of course the original album newly remastered with 2015 technology
big Difference in sound quality compared to the 2001 remaster
Disc 2 is a soundboard recorded concert or Radio broadcast never before officially released until now
of the Scorpions live Madison square Gardens 1984
and the sound quality is excellent Digitally remastered
it's a pro soundboard recording not a amateur audience recording, big Difference.
Disc 3 is DVD of Video clips digitally remastered of course
Video clips footage promoting their Love at first sting album
so Definitely time to upgrade and buy this new Deluxe edition, 5 stars based on new LIVE material
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!!
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!

Buyer Beware. The item description said this was the EMI version of the Scorpions Love at First Sting Album. Squirelsounds sent me the American version on Mercury/Polygram. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Amazon Customer
What was to follow after their classic Blackout? I wonder what was on the horizon after what i would consider an all time killer rock album of the 80's. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Peter L. Crisp
Review of actual vinyl copy - Poor quality, lots of noise, only just on the right side of what I would accept listening to! Good album though!Published 15 months ago by Matt
