There are several reasons why every fan should get this album. First of all, they included 4 songs from the Roth era (albums which I like the most). Then there are some brand new songs, and no fillers at that. "Delicate Dance" provides a somewhat atypical instrumental, but very melodic. "Follow Your Heart" and "Dancing With the Moonlight" have those catchy choruses that I love these guys for. Then if anyone forgot that this is a German band, here's Rudolf's "Love Is The Answer". But what he lacks in pronunciation, he makes up in emotion and sincerity. And "Rock 'N' Roll Band"? I get goosebumps when Klaus roars that line: "You wanna know who I am? I'm in a rock 'n' roll band!"
The arrangements are simply brilliant, so that even familiar tunes like "Passion Rules The Game" and "No One Like You" shine in a whole new way. These two even top the original versions. Funnily, the weak spot of the Scorps' live albums are usually the biggest classics, because we've heard them so many times that they got boring. However, here they managed to render "Still Loving You" and "Wind Of Change" in a slightly different way (ie. they have a reason to be on a CD for the nth time). I think Morten Harket fitted in quite nicely.
All in all, quite a feat for a couple of grampas. So should they ride off into the sunset as winners? Only after I've seen them live with this set. Or never.
Here we have 24 fantastic acoustic covers ranging from throughout their entire back catalogue. There is something for everyone on this cd.
The band sound as tight and professional as they always are. The guest appearances are quite nice and some of the arrangements(new songs)are a very cool surprise.
I would highly recommend it to anyone with the slightest interest in either the bands heavy metal or pop side.
Hopefully they will keep on rockin', whether it's acoustic, electric or in a retirement home!
Just a word of advice to all fans, buy it!
with the addition of further musos (both vocally, instrumentally, on guitar and other instruments like violins, piano and mandolins). Great songs are given a different interpretation but these recordings make you realise how good the Scorps' songwriting was. Highlight songs for me are Pictured Life, Born To Touch Your Feelings, Send Me An Angel and When The Smoke Is Going Down. However, the real highlight is Klaus Meine's vocal performance. Never realised how great his voice was until this CD and I've been listening to him for over 30 years.
C'mon 'Speedy's Coming acoustic !! yet it works alongside an eclectic selection,stuff from the 70's 'Born to touch your Feelings',just beautiful right up to the title track of their last studio disc 'Sting in the Tail'.
For me,a totally unexpected success story.
