Product Description


Perhaps Metallica are to blame. When they decided to tour with an entire symphony orchestra and release the result as an awesome live album (1999's S&M), little could they know that they would inspire others to follow suit. With Moment Of Glory, German poodle rockers the Scorpions have done just that. Unfortunately, where Metallica's collaboration with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra added new levels of immensity and menace to some of their best tracks, the Scorpion's collaboration with Berliner Philharmoniker only comes out sounding rather tepid. New song "Moment Of Glory" comes across all Disney, especially when the children's choir kicks in, while Zucchero steers the once-proud rockers down the middle of the road when he guests on "Send Me An Angel". Only "Hurricane 2000" (a new version of "Rock Me Like A Hurricane") displays any of its former rocking grandeur. Bassoons don't rock. Neither do flutes, or piccolos. It's obvious to the rest of the world, so why did nobody inform the Scorpions? --Robert Burrow

Product Description

New Album Recorded with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. Features Three New Songs, Including Moment of Glory which Has Been Chosen as the Official Anthem of Expo 2000. Includes a Duet with Zucchero.

1.0 out of 5 stars dynamite! Oct. 20 2002
By Phil On
Format:Audio CD
Just when you think the scorpions couldn't do worst...they prove you wrong!
Even Metallica's s&m is better...close but still.
I am sure that it was a great experience to live, for the band and the audience, because that type of event is always unique and can bring strong emotions-unless you have a dumb..s sitting next to you, drinkin' beer and screaming every five minutes Dynamiiiiiiite!!-but on cd...for me it doesn't do it,but it probably is a treasure for those who were there.
Now, I'm not gonna start the debat with DEEP PURPLE and the LSO(1999) but I was there at the Royal Albert Hall and that's why I can understand the concept and the thrill of holding the recording of such concerts...but still DEEP PURPLE 's symphonic album features something that neither Scorpions or Metallica holds...and this is an ORIGINAL PIECE OF MUSIC CREATED FOR A GROUP AND A ORCHESTRA!

AWESOME is how I would sum up this CD. From the moment I first heard it, I knew I HAD to have it. Buy it! You won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sountrack to life July 10 2002
Format:Audio CD
The only comlaint you could have about buying this album is that it is relatively short. That shouldnt stop you from buying it! Inevitably this will be compared to Metallica's S&M: but this is spit-and-polished metal and ballads that puts it to shame. The updated "rock you like a hurricane" is terrific, although Klaus Meine's vocals (in my opinion) just werent _quite_ as beautiful as usual. This song opens strong orchestrally, and closes just as hard. "Moment of glory" is wonderful. The children's choir is a nice touch, adding to the songs' message of hope, and I particularly like the impish ending by the orchestra here and on "wind of change". "send me an angel" features vocals split with Italian superstar Zucherro (you may have seen him on vocals during the Freddie Mercury Tribute concert). The song still sounds excellent here. "here in my heart" has to be one of the prettiest duets Ive heard. "big city nights" opens hard, and never stops. I much prefer this version, incl. guest vocals. This album sounds like the winning soundtrack to a movie. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow.. Jan. 28 2002
Format:Audio CD
My father always said that if Beethoven were alive today he'd be writing rock-n-roll ballads. I love kick butt classical music and hard rock....what a wonderful combination! The quieter sections of this CD are also exquisite. I always crank good music while cleaning the house.....my abode is virtually spotless now that I have this great CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cosmic, Hauntingly Monumental. Dec 4 2001
By Anna
Format:Audio CD
You can hear the angelic hosts/ armies clashing with the demonic forces. Unbelievably monumental sound when metal meets classical. Our Order of the Knights Templar and Daughters of Tsion decided to use this music as inspiration during our guided meditations. Yes, we're kooky, but hey, ya gotta have some kind of spirituality in your life (it's good for you) and chivalry is NOT dead, but a fine art of knights and ladies walking the warrior path to the Divine. (...) Our 3rd Millenium Angelic Alliance Order of angel workers is pretty cool, too. We plan to use this inspiring Scorpions album for that group, especially since one of the songs is "Send Me an Angel."

5.0 out of 5 stars Moment of Glory Nov. 29 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD is truly a moment of glory for the Scorpions.
It brings the best of the Scorpions into a music mix that rivals
great albums like Stg. Peppers and Dark Side of the Moon, and brings it into the next level by using the Berlin Philharmonic.
If Mozart and Beethoven were alive today this would have been their next step in the creation of music.
It has been mainly European Glory to date as the marketing in America is poor. Hopefully this will improve. This CD is truly amazing and a must for people that like Hard Rock done full out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Album most likely to please a mixed crowd June 21 2001
Format:Audio CD
I agree with the previous reviewer who wrote that he played this CD for a "mixed crowd" of musical tastes...I did the same thing, and many people really liked this CD (and it's hard to get this group to agree on much of ANYTHING!).
I listened to the Scorpions when I was in high school in the '80's, playing guitar in the high school jazz band, and being influenced from everyone from Wes Montgomery to Scorpions.
I recently heard a track from "Moment of Glory" on the radio, and I was blown away. After listening to the full CD - I really like it! (I'll leave the deconstruction of the CD to the truly die-hard Scorpion fans... :-) I also agree with the amazon review that the album teeters gracefully between wine-and-cheese and cheesy.....and somehow pulls it off successfully.
At least....check it out of the local public library - and see if you don't think about buying it! :-)

4.0 out of 5 stars Up to my expectations June 18 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I'm not much of a Scorpions' fan, but I bought this CD because of two reasons: Moment of Glory and Wind of Change. Both are two of the most beatiful rock ballads ever, and the arrangement with the orchestra is simply outstanding. The rest of the CD is all right.
