    Ah yes. Easily one of my top 5 albums of all time.Part of the reason why my baby boy's name is Matthias.I'd call it hard rock but it's understandable if some people call it metal. I take it you don't consider this tweedly deedly nonsense Alvis?

    "Some people"......most people who were up in it in 1982 ,called it metal

    Actually ,it's not my favorite Scorpions . Im more of a Roth era guy
    But Blackout was a pretty good album . I liked it better than Magnetism for sure
    Nah, i don't consider it wheedelee nonsense....nor de-tuned cookie monster Norwegian doom sludge either

    I knew actual girls who liked Scorpions ....THAT's your constant rock n roll barometer :lol:

    Great album. Definitely my favorite scorps album. Wish it could have been produced better. They sounded so much better live.

    Shit, now that I think about it more you're right Alvis;I t wasn't until the 80's (roughly )when metal really became a genre separate from rock.RCM 800: what didn't you like about the production?

    World Wide Live is my favorite album. Has all the good ones on it. And...of course...it's live. No substitute for live music, glitches and all.

    I saw them 3x's that tour...

    Orange Pavillion w/ Girlschool.
    Summer Strut w/ Foreigner, Loverboy & Iron Maiden
    Us Festival '83

    At the time, I was a young guitarist & thought the energy was great. I think though, once I got a bit more mature playing in bands myself, they seem to overly rush most of their songs until there's no groove. Just fast...

    I think Kottack does a little better keeping the time back.

    I saw MSG a few years ago w/ Rarebell & Bucholz & they actually kept a good even tempo on everything, & they played stuff from UFO, Scorp's & McAuley are stuff, but, back in the Scorp's, Rarebell rushed everything a bit much...

    Their best live album was Tokyo Tapes. There's better live recordings, but officially, IMO, that's the best.

    Dieter Dirks was a phenomenal producer. Once they ditched him, their production went straight south...

    Sounds really dry and tinny to me. They are one of the best sounding live bands Ive seen. World Wide Live got a lot closer to capturing their sound than any of their studio stuff IMO.

    I saw them in Tacoma on the WWL tour. For a very long time after that I had the live album (cassette, actually) in my Walkman almost exclusively. Good stuff.
