Home at last. I popped in a couple of other CD's to make sure the stereo was hot and ready for what I remember the vinyl version to be. Oh, majorly woe is me. In other words, this digital version of Virgin Killer is a sad state of affairs, folks. Granted, the CD's I used for the "warm up" were late 90's stuff. Yet, some of the old time classic indispensables like Edgar Winter's "They Only Come Out At Night" (another remaster in the making dear producers/distributors?--please, please!) are much more superior in the digital release than this CD.
Musically, Virgin Killer is a 10 star plus effort from the Scorpions. The songs' various tempos and especially the synergy exibited between the bass, lead guitar (go Schenker, go, go, go!!), and Klaus's vocals at his prime outshines most anything classified as metal, straightforward rock and/or both from the late 70's onward to today's metal mania. In short, and in layman's terms, these guys pulled out all the stops and decided to let it all hang out! And the result, dear friends, was indeed "..KILLER",, wink!!
Sonically, however, this CD leaves much to be desired by the bleeding heart Scorpions fan. This production quality is just plain muffled, veiled garbage. Truthfully, it was a kick in the ....Read more ›
all the songs are reasonable, including the title cut. the original cover was pretty bold but very metal. i like the fact that they basically stuck a quickly posed pointless cameo of the band instead. tells you what they were like at that point. scruffy metal hippies basically, and not all that "cool."
I agree with everyone who says in your park is way better than still loving you, which is in its own right a fine song.
In 1976, the Scorpions released their fourth full-length studio album, Virgin Killer. This was the band's third (as well as their second to last) studio album to feature the severely underrated guitarist Ulrich Jon Roth, and the album even won the award of LP Of The Year in the band's native Germany! Is this album worthy of that title, or is it "just another Scorpions album?" Read on and find out.
Well, one thing's for sure. This album more than deserves the title of "LP Of The Year." This is one of the greatest Scorpions albums of all, if not the overall best. Ulrich Jon Roth's guitar playing on Fly To The Rainbow and In Trance were great, but on this album he completely blows away everything he has done in the past. In addition, the guitar virtuoso who helped to get the band started, Michael Schenker, takes a break from UFO and helps the band out on a few of the tracks featured here. The band kicks the album off with Pictured Life, a classic hard and heavy power rocker. It's hard for me to choose a favorite Scorpions song since so many of them are so great, but if I had to choose a favorite, this just might be the one. Following this track you will learn instantly that this is the band's fastest and most furious album of all. Two-thirds of the album is made up of hard and heavy rockers that are unbeatable in the quality department. Among these are Catch Your Train, Backstage Queen, and the title track. There are even three power ballads on here, all of which are excellent and well ahead of their time - In Your Park, Crying Days, and Yellow Raven.Read more ›

Although it is not the same as their later material that is far more popular, I think this is a great CD, the more I listen to it the more I love it. Read morePublished 14 days ago by Kevin Taylor
I have just about every Scorpions CD in print. Over the years, this German band made several line up changes.One of my biggest disappointments was the exiting of Ulrich Roth. Read morePublished on Jan. 8 2010 by Luap Van Horn
One of the all time great Rock Albums. Made before the term "Metal" had arrived, and should not be confused with "Metal". By far Scorpions best album. Read morePublished on April 2 2008 by Russell Foster
