Product Description

Amazon.ca

Although the 2 CD set Deadly Sting: The Mercury Years starts with the Scorpions' fifth studio album Lovedrive, it effectively traces and relives most of the German outfit's development from buzz band to rock stars. Beginning with their Billboard debut Lovedrive, which featured "Loving You Sunday Morning" and "Holiday" (contained here), the first disc follows the band through the platinum success of Blackout and the mind-blowing popularity of Love at First Sting. Included are the guitar-buzzing, pulse-pounding cuts "The Zoo," "No One Like You," "Rock You Like a Hurricane," and "Still Loving You." But with the second disc, Deadly Sting unabashedly captures a star-dazed band on the way down. Four cuts from the sappy, mediocre Savage Amusement are included, as well as numbers from the equally unimpressive Crazy World and the comeback-of-sorts Face the Heat. Although only the first CD is essential, it's the entire package that reveals the complete picture. --Jon Wiederhorn

The Scorpions are the finest rock band to ever emerge from Germany, and easily one of the finest ones of all time. For many years they have been together, creating excellent rockers and ballads that you'd have to be a fool not to love. In the early-mid nineties, this dual-disc hits compilation was released. How does it measure up? Read on for my review of Deadly Sting - The Mercury Years.
PROS:
-If you're a casual fan of the Scorpions, but you want more than a single-disc hits compilation will give you, you've come to the right place. All the big hits are here - including Loving You Sunday Morning, The Zoo, Blackout, No One Like You, Big City Nights, Still Loving You, and many others.
-In addition, you get tons of underrated masterpieces. It's about time they put Don't Stop At The Top on a Scorpions hits compilation! Another underrated masterpiece is their cover of The Who's classic I Can't Explain.
-Unlike just about every other Scorpions hits compilation in existance, THIS ONE ORGANIZES THE TRACKS IN CHRONOLOGICAL RELEASE ORDER!
-In terms of the number of tracks this gives you, this is the band's finest compilation to date.
CONS:
-The biggest con with this compilation is the same one that most other Scorpions hits compilations have - it only covers the MERCURY YEARS. That means no tracks featuring Michael Schenker or Ulrich Jon Roth. Accordingly, Lonesome Crow, Fly To The Rainbow, In Trance, Virgin Killer, and Taken By Force get zero representation here.
-Two discs means a higher price.
OVERALL:
Despite some minor shortcomings, Deadly Sting stands as The Scorpions' best hits compilation to date. If you don't plan on buying anything else by the band, this will do great. However, if you're just seeking an introduction to the band and are considering making future purchases, get the single-disc Bad For Good compilation, since it's more affordable.

"Best of" and "Greatest Hits" albums are, let's face it, not made for a band's hard-core fans who already own their entire catalog. They're typically marketed towards everybody else: the casual fans. That is, the people who don't own any albums from that band, but liked what they've heard (from a concert, radio, Mtv, etc.), and would enjoy a compilation of these songs from different albums.
When it comes to Scorpions, I'm in this second category. After seeing them live in '96 with Alice Cooper, I knew I had to break down and buy a CD of theirs once and for all. Especially after hearing "Coast To Coast", an instrumental that for whatever reason I absolutely fell in love with. So I bought "Worldwide Live". I liked it a lot, but I still preferred hearing the studio versions of all those songs I've come to know and like (The Zoo, Rock You Like A Hurricane, Black Out, No One Like You, Big City Nights, etc.) Plus, I also really liked those 90s hits and concert songs I heard (Tease Me Please Me, Don't Believe Her, Alien Nation).
Finally THIS CD, "Deadly Sting: The Mercury Years", hit the stores, and it was exactly what I was looking for. Quite simply, it had EVERY song I ever remember hearing from them! The audio quality seems good and consistant too. I even liked some of the few songs I wasn't originally familiar with.
So, if you like those Scorpions songs you heard on the radio or in the videos Mtv used to play, but never got around to buying any of their albums, just buy this one!
