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.

In the eighties, The Scorpions would undergo a transformation not unlike another classic metal band, Judas Priest. Priest had shed many trappings of their more epic 70's sound in favor of more streamlined songwriting and a (somewhat) more commercial sheen. The Scorpions did the same, and by 1984 this transformation had been complete. Uli Jon Roth was nothing but a distant memory, and the most well known line up of The Scorpions had found their place. Love at First Sting still remains a great album, maybe not up to par with their 70's material but strong just the same. It has a very sleek sound that would later be copied by lesser bands who sought to capture the sleekness and commercial potential in this type of production. However, the songs still count, and they still rock, probably more than their previous album, Blackout. It begins with the rocker Bad Boys Running Wild, then to the anthem (the overplayed infamous) Rock You Like a Hurricane, and then to the more speedy songs Coming Home and Same Thrill. No Scorpions album would be complete without some experimentation, and this is in the epic anti cold war track, Crossfire. The ballad Still Loving You is their strongest ballad since the seventies, and the other songs have their own strengths as well. Too bad they hired outside songwriters and so on to try to duplicate the magic later. They couldn't. The Scorpions are the original "pop metal" band, but I mean that in a good way. Their songs are catchy and concise (even in the Roth era though maybe not on Lonesome Crow which I do love btw) and have a keen sense of melody and the bite that they possess keeps the songs from being "pop" in a bad way. Like a Heavy Metal Beatles (early) in a way. Get this, you should already have it!
