5.0 out of 5 stars A sexist, raunchy, Spinal Tappish classic. Nov. 5 2003
Format:Audio CD
The Scorpions have never been all too good with the fairer sex. Their misogynist lyrics and album covers came to a head with this album, 1980's Animal Magnetism (well maybe not album covers if you think about Virgin Killer eww)..
If one wants to enjoy the Scorpions, they have to set those things aside because according to the parties involved (including Uli Jon Roth) it was kind of all an act.
But enough of my yapping. Animal Magnetism rocks. Hard. It has a rough, raw feel but looser vibe than their previous album Lovedrive, and while a bit more unfocused, the songs are almost a bit more memorable. No Michael Schenker here, he was probably really drunk and recording his first solo album at the time anyway. He dropped the ball on these guys. Songs like "Only a Man" (Clinton's excuse), "Hold Me Tight", and "Don't Make No Promises (Your Body Can't Keep)" exemplfy the sleazy attitude of the album, but are probably the most rocking songs on the album as well. The Zoo, well let's just say its a fluke that it was a hit. Its not their worst song but its a bit pedestrian considering the other songs on the album. "Lady Starlight" continues in the traditions of their seventies ballads, however with no Uli Jon Roth it doesn't match to songs like "We'll Burn the Sky". Its still a great song, with an orchestra taking the place of Uli (!) and a slow burning solo from (Rudolph sounding a bit like his brother) Schenker.

3.0 out of 5 stars Remastered? July 9 2012
By Matt Hughes TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Hmm, so I love this album and always found it to be not the greatest sound quality, a bit muddy really and saw this 2001 Japanese 'remastered' version on amazon and thought this will probably sound even better, and going by how high some people are selling it for (up to 80 dollars or more!) I thought this is THE ONE! I found it for $8.99 used on amazon and snatched it up. But, just got it today and it sounds EXACTLY the same (caps make it more convincing!) as any other version! Still muddy! Not sure what they remastered it from, maybe an old cassette tape, I don't know, but it sure isn't worth what some people are selling it for on here, save your money folks and just by a regular version because they are all the same.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's hard rock from the 80's Dec 9 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's the Scorpions. The usual song styles are here. The rockers and the ubiquitous ballad. Not bad, but they did do this style better later on in the decade.

4.0 out of 5 stars Break through album for the Band May 16 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the Scorpions album that launched their US popularity. This is a leather wearing, head bangin, your parents won't like it rock and roll album. While not the scorpions greatest album, this is a must have for anyone who enjoys 80's rock.

Animal Magnetism~ Scorpions
this is one of my all time favorite albums, i think album is their best work as all the songs have punch. great guitars and drums throughout. yes it's old but it's a classic. i have it on vinyl and cassette. it took me years to find on cd original print. I finally got it off craiglist for 2 bucks. If you like great metal check this album and band out.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Scorpion Magnetism" July 3 2004
By Tess
Format:Audio CD
"This was a very hard C.D. to find. But finally found it to replace the tape of the same name that was lost. I grew up in the "80's",& when a friend played one song called,"The Zoo",I really loved that song right away,& then listening to the rest,which back then I didnt know who they were at 15, I loved this record!!! There are some songs from the C.D. that werent my fav's, but enough to have to have it again. Make it real,Dont make no promises your body cant keep,Falling in Love,Only a man,The Zoo,Lady Starlight,I love those the most,they are really good "HEAVY METAL MUSIC",the other 3 are not bad at all,(Hold me tight,20th century man,Animal Magnetism,are also good,but everyone has their fav's. There are 9 tracks,& if Ive been looking for this, this long,then I think its worth every penny.The Scorpions do an excellent job ,the music is hard rocking metal as they are,the songs are unique,and I really love this C.D.,& Iam glad I finally found a copy. If you like "80's" HARD ROCK,then The Scorpions,"Animal Magnetism",wont be a disappointment!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Scorps Finest June 23 2004
Format:Audio CD
Got this album on cassette in the mail from RCA in the early 80's and soon realized what a fine slab of metal I had purchased.
The production is very raw and the guitar riffs are the best of any Scorpions album. Make It Real, Falling In Love, The Zoo, and Only A Man rock hard. The title track is slow and hypnotizing. The sole ballad Lady Starlight contains some great Micheal Schenker style playing (hmmmmm?). Taken By Force, Blackout, Virgin Killer, and Love Drive should also be part of your collection!
