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.

"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!!!!

Animal Magnetism (1980.) Scorpions' seventh album.
Normally replacing band members can result in instant doom for a band. The Scorpions are one of the few bands that didn't have to face such a tragedy. Their new guitarist, Matthias Jabs, had more than proven to be a competent replacement for his predecessor, Ulrich Jon Roth. Their recent album, Lovedrive, had proven this well. And in 1980, the band released its seventh album - Animal Magnetism. Read on for my review.
Unlike the previous Lovedrive album, which experimented with a number of styles, just about every track featured on this album explores the same style - classic hard power rock. One of the band's earliest big hits, the rocker known as The Zoo, can be found on this album. This is one of the band's most popular songs to date, as well as one of their finest. A number of other excellent rockers can also be found on this album, including the excellent opening track Make It Real. The album's other rockers, including Twentieth Century Man, Falling in love, and the title track, are equally excellent. There is only one ballad to be found on this album, but it's one of their finest tracks of the styling - a little number entitled Lady Starlight. This is the band at its slowest and most melodic, but it's still an excellent song, and in my opinion, better than the other ballads they would score later in the decade. All the way through, this is an excellent album, and though it lacks the substance of its predecessor, Lovedrive, it's more than worthy of a score of four point five.
To put it simply, this is an album worth owning if you like the Scorpions for their hard rock material. Through and through, this album sticks with a style similar to what other power rock bands of the eighties would use, so if you like eighties hard rock, it's extremely likely that you will like this album. Don't pass it by; it's a Scorpions masterpiece.
