Product Description

Product Description

By one-upping the 1989 best-of Best of Rockers 'n' Ballads, Scorpions' 20th Century Masters makes the claim of being the hair metal band's definitive single-disc best-of. It does so by adding "Send Me an Angel" and "Wind of Change," the latter being one of Scorpions' largest and most well-known hits ever. Since these two songs were released after Best of Rockers 'n' Ballads, they don't appear on that best-of. Besides the inclusion of those two latter-day songs, not much else is different. All the big '80s metal anthems are still here: "Rock You Like a Hurricane," "Big City Nights," "No One Like You," "Still Loving You," and so on.

Germany's The Scorpions are by far one of the best heavy metal bands of all time.This CD is well worth picking up,with hits like "Rock You Like A Hurricane" and "Winds Of Change" being classics of the genre and sure to induce some heavy duty head-banging.For a fan of metal,this is essential listening.Excellent vocals,awesome guitar solos and a dman tight rhythm section from this truly excellent band.Classic.

In 2001 Mercury Records presented this "The Best Of Scorpions" as a part of the greatest hits series "20th Century Masters: The Millenium Collection". This compilation attempted to compile by the first time all the greatest hits of the german band in a single-disc. In fact, Mercury got it. Even the compilation sold well. But 12 tracks are very few and a lot of great songs were omitted.

Only from the track 5 (the big "Still Loving You") the songs are ordered chronologically. And the last band's album recorded for the label ("Face The Heat") isn't represented here. Usually the tracks are well selected.

The booklet is fair. It includes some photos of the band (in colour) and acceptable liner-notes. There is no much information about their discography here. Only the chart positions of the songs.

The quality sound is exactly the same of "Deadly Sting: The Mercury Years (1997)". It isn't remastered.

In brief, a good compilation if you are looking for only the hits and don't want to spend much money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of hit tracks for a new Scorpions fan 29 Jun. 2006
By J. Navleris - Published on
Format: Audio CD
The Best of Scorpions: The Millenium Collection from the 20th Century Masters series is a great CD for those fans who want to get know what the Scorpions are all about. You can't really complain about the cost; the track list makes it definitely worth the price.

The 2 most commercially-successful albums "Love At First Sting" (Rock You Like A Hurricane, Big City Nights, Still Loving You) and "Crazy World" (Tease Me Please Me, Wind Of Change, Send Me An Angel) are well-represented here. Although, having 2 tracks from the sub-par "Savage Amusement" (Rhythym of Love, Believe In Love) and only 1 from the vastly-superior "Blackout" (No One Like You) is a joke.

If you want a decent selection of great songs from one of the better rock bands of the 80s and 90s but don't want to spend a lot of cash, get your hands on this disc. If you want a more complete collection of great Scorpions music and don't mind spending a little more, pick up the 3-disc "Box Of Scorpions" set instead of this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best collection I've heard 29 May 2005
By Robert VerBruggen - Published on
Format: Audio CD
As far as `80s metal goes, bands tend to fall into one of two categories: party-metal bands like Poison, with blues-based songs and good-looking members, and darker bands like Iron Maiden and Megadeth, with classically-influenced songs and members who only get chicks because they're famous.

Precious few bands fall between the two categories, but the Scorpions do it quite well. They sing catchy songs about women, but at the same time they fall well short of Def Leppard in the looks department. Also, they combine classical ("The Zoo") and blues ("Big City Nights") influences.

Their biggest radio hits from the `80s (their mostly-overseas `70s career is essentially ignored) were chronicled on The Millennium Collection: The Scorpions.

I bought this CD to replace my Best of Rockers `N' Ballads cassette, and there are only a few tracks that are different. Two of the songs that appear here, "Believe in Love" and "Wind of Change," make it definitely the better buy.

All the crucial tracks-"Rock You Like a Hurricane," "Rhythm of Love" and "Still Loving You," among others-remain, though "Holiday" is absent.

With a listen through the CD, it's amazing how many audiences the Scorpions can appeal to simultaneously. Any fan of music will enjoy the ultra-catchy songs that manage to be emotional and accessible at the same time.

Those impressed with musical proficiency will like the guitar work, and the amazing, distinctive singing of Klaus Meine.

Though the songs fall prey to a flashy `80s sound, they do not sound as dated as Poison rip-offs like Ratt or Warrant. In fact, the Scorpions were pioneers of metal music; they formed in 1965 in Germany. As a result, the tracks remain original and powerful.

3.0 out of 5 stars This is not their best. 3 Aug. 2001
By Matt Salo - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Its hard to imagine that I'd criticize a best hits album by one of the greatest metal bands of all time. Its not that the songs they've chosen aren't good...the radio friendly standards of Rock You Like a Hurricane and No One Like You should always be on a greatest hits album. But to include the sappy ballads that characterized their late 80's and early 90's work as opposed to the absolutely masterful things that they came out with in the 70s is ridiculous. How about just one song from their 1972 debut, Lonesome Crow? How about the haunting In Trance from the album of the same name? Who hasnt heard Drifting Sun from Fly to the Rainbow and not been blown away.
Anybody wanting to catch the real best of the Scorpions would be well served by spending a little more and getting acquainted with their earlier work. The Scorpions became a hair band, but managed to forge the fundamental backbone of European heavy metal in the 70s.
Rush right out now and buy Fly To The Rainbow, Virgin Killer, and In Trance. Lonesome Crow, if you can find it will blow your mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big hair at its best! 5 July 2001
By The Wickerman - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Along with Def Leppard and Tesla, these guys were the best of the so-called "hair metal" genre. The main thing I like about them in comparison to other bands of this ilk (even as compared to the aforementioned two) is that they didn't sound like every other band. Their music wasn't near as cheesy as, say, Whitesnake, Motley Crue, or, worst of all, Poison, (though it was still pretty cheesy, after all it is hair metal), and the vocals more closely resembled that of European power metal, like Helloween, moreso than the average glam wailer. Anyhow, these guys made some really cool music. They had some good hard-driving rhythms that are good for getting the old head banging, and some really good solos (say what you will about hair metal, but they always did manage to have some really good solos). And, of course, you have the ballads. I think "Believe in Love" and "Send Me an Angel" are a bit too corny for me, but "Still Loving You" and "Wind of Change" are just amazing. I think "Wind of Change" has got to be the best hair metal ballad ever written. It's not some mushy love song (in fact, I'm really not sure what it's about, nostalgia, perhaps?), and the vocal work is just bone-chilling. Okay, the whistling is a bit goofy (it works in GNR's "Patience", but here it sounds like he's calling Lassie), but everything else about the song is perfect. All in all, this greatest hits package makes for a pleasant listen. Seeing as how I usually prefer stuff like Metallica and Iron Maiden, and the songs I already knew ("No One Like You", "Rock You like a Hurricane", "The Zoo", "Big City Nights", "Tease Me, Please Me", and the aforementioned ballads) were the only ones that really did it for me, giving this five stars is a stretch, it's more like 4.5, but since they're way better than the average glam rockers, I'll be generous. If you like these guys (specifically Klaus Meine's unusual German-accented vocals), you might want to check out one of my favorite bands, Blind Guardian. They are the new kings of Germany. But, if you just want a taste of what the mainstream was like back before Korn and Limp Bizkit killed it, this is one album you oughta check out.

2.0 out of 5 stars It's just lacking in material 23 Mar. 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I really do not like the 20th century Masters line up of discs that try to cover all of the "Best&Greatest" songs from various bands. The problem is that 10 tracks hardly constitutes enough coverage to do a group justice.And here for the Scorpions, one of my favorite bands, this horrible series rears it's horrendus,ugly head.Now it does have some of the Scorps best songs that you might of heard on the radio like "Rock you like a Hurricane" "Still Loving You" "big city Nights" "Winds of Change" "No One Like You" ect, but i just cant imagine a Scorpions song collection with out "Blackout" "Love Drive" "Passion Rules the Game" "Now!" "Lady Star Light" ect. There are just better collections out there.
