Scorpions review

 

Half re-recordings of their hits, half covers, and while generally that sort of stuff doesn't work, I think the Scorps pulled it off quite nicely.

Nicely done, sir. The only thing I would've added is that the title -- "Comeblack" - sounds like the name of an African American themed porn film. :D

Mark's review of this disc got me curious about it so I've been sampling some tracks from it on YouTube this evening... I can take or leave the re-recorded versions of their classic stuff, but the cover tunes are pretty cool, particularly Soft Cell's "Tainted Love" and the Kinks' "All Day and All of the Night." Maybe they should've just done more covers and left their own songs alone.

 

I wasn't terribly interested in this CD beforehand, but now that I've heard some of it, dammit, I'm probably gonna end up buying this thing. Once a fanboy, always a fanboy, I guess. :lol:

As much as I love Scorps, and have everything they've ever released...I'm saying no to this. If I ask myself do I need this? It's a no.

I like the album, but it's not an essential purchase by any means. That said, given how badly bands usually flunk at this kind of album, the Scorpions really did a good job. Considering that "Sting in the Tail" was supposedly the last thing we would hear from the band, I'm just happy to have anything new. It's an unnecessary album, but not an unwelcome one.

Nice review, I`ve only heard Tainted Love and that was live, sounded great, will add this to my ever growing want list. :tumbsup:
