After years of writing hook-laden choruses and triumphantly buzzing riffs, this German band finally perfected the formula. A fine mix of poise and passion, Love at First Sting appeals to both angry metalheads and Top-40 aficionados. --Jon Wiederhorn

Love At First Sting (1984.) Scorpions' ninth album.
By the time 1984 had rolled around, the Scorpions had succeeded at becoming one of the world's most popular and successful heavy metal acts. Every album they had released to date was excellent, and there was no denying that. But it was their ninth studio album, Love At First Sting, released in 1984, that would give the band their status as living legends. Does this album deserve its position as their most popular one of all, or is it just a subpar release from the German metal legends? Read on for my review.
To put it simply, this album is more than worthy of all the praise that fans give it. The most obvious good thing about this album are the three huge hits that can be found here. First off is the band's biggest hit of all, Rock You Like A Hurricane. The band never released a song before this one that achieved similar successes, and never would. It's arena-style power rock at its finest. And then, of course, we have Big City Nights. This power rocker also became a pretty big hit, and it deserves its lofty reputation. The third and final of the big hits is the band's most famous ballad to date - Still Loving You. This isn't their best ballad by any means, but it is their most popular, and one of their finest efforts. And, of course, the excellent tracks on this album are not limited to just the hits. Once again, the band serves up an album consisting mostly of hard and heavy fast-paced tracks - solid proof that these guys are NOT a glam metal band, despite what some idiots think. Also, as with most Scorpions albums, there are a few ballads. It's amazing that these guys, who are best at shelling out fast and furious rockers, can succeed at creating such excellent ballads.

By John Alapick on Sept. 23 2003

Love At First Sting was the Scorpions' most successful album in the U.S. and remains their strongest album. Although Savage Amusement would chart higher on the charts and their biggest hit "Wind Of Change" appeared on Crazy World, Love At First Sting was their best album featuring their strongest collection of songs.
This album features an equal balance of heavier tracks, catchy metal driven by memorable riffs, and power ballads, and most of them are top notch. The acoustic turned heavy rocker "Coming Home" is one of the strongest tracks and was the opening song for many of their live shows. "Rock You Like A Hurricane" would be one of their biggest hits and remains their signature song. The ballad "Still Loving You" remains one of the best of the metal era and features some excellent passionate soloing from lead guitarist Matthias Jabs. Tracks like "Big City Nights", "Bad Boys Running Wild", and "I'm Leaving You" are all very strong, featuring excellent melodies penned by rhythm guitarist Rudolf Schenker. The lesser known songs are also very good, particularly the anti-war track "Crossfire", driven by Herman Rarebell's hypnotic march beat and "As Soon As The Good Times Roll." An excellent album. Highly recommended to fans of great '80s melodic metal.

In case you missed it this is a review of the Audio Fidelity 24k Gold HDCD (yes they play on regular CD players) edition. Received mine today. Sounds much better then current domestic version that has not been remastered and was released in the 80's. This is the first Gold CD I have seen in HDCD. The HDCD play back does have a bit more bass then the Red Book playback (regular CD) but this was the first metal record to be recorded completely digital. That being said they did not record in 192/24 back in the 80's so unfortunately this record is still not as thick sounding as I hoped it would be but they did an excellent job with what they had! If you are a fan of the record you will be glad you picked this one up.
The record it's self is one of the top ten Metal Records of the 1980's and anyone that loves Metal should check this album out. Back in high school I must of heard this record a hundred times and it never gets old. Since Universal Music Canada seems to feel that the Scorpions remasters are not worth releasing in Canada I really hope Audio Fidelity will at least release their big four records (them being this one, Blackout, Love Drive and Animal Magnetism). This one will be getting lots of plays! "Still Loving You" is still the best power ballad ever written!
