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.
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
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!Published on July 30 2002 by Dreamskape
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! Read morePublished on Jan. 28 2002 by Melanie S.
You can hear the angelic hosts/ armies clashing with the demonic forces. Unbelievably monumental sound when metal meets classical. Read morePublished on Dec 3 2001 by Anna
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. Read more
I agree with the previous reviewer who wrote that he played this CD for a "mixed crowd" of musical tastes... Read morePublished on June 21 2001 by Tim Warneka
I'm not much of a Scorpions' fan, but I bought this CD because of two reasons: Moment of Glory and Wind of Change. Read morePublished on June 18 2001
The version of Wind of Change is exactly how I feel this song was meant to sound. The two instrumental new songs are hard driving with great backing. Read morePublished on March 26 2001 by Scott DuBreuil
