5.0 out of 5 stars WOW July 7 2000
Format:Audio CD
I still remember the dat I got this record. Until then the only Scorpions I was familier with were the big radio albums (lovedrive-crazy world). Little did I know that this other side of the Scorpions existed. I was so amazed when I put the needly on the album and listened to the first few bars of "Pictured Life". I had no idea this dark side of the Scorpions even existed. I have been hooked on this album ever since. I am still so amazed how they had something like the title track and yellow raven on the same album. Although most people who are familier with the scorpions have no idea the album exists, it does upset me, but then again, it could be "our little secret". And what a great secret it is!

Virgin Killer (1976.) Scorpions' fourth album.
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Where's the REMASTER?! Dec 29 2001
Format:Audio CD
So here I am strolling down the aisle in one of my fave record shops and lo and behold--shell shock! The Scorpions "CD" version of Virgin Killer! Where the heck has this "CD" been hiding out the whole time??! I felt like a kid in a candy store. I wanted to be the first in the check out line with this gem---mmmm, gimme that ear candy.
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 ....

While Lovedrive, Animal Magnatism, and Blackout receive the majority of musical praise, this album is certainly a diamond in the ruff. Get it!!! If you have never heard it before it is similiar to the first time you heard Animal Magnatism!! Raw emotional and powerful!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Scorpions "ROTH" CD Jan. 8 2010
Format:Audio CD
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. On this "Virgin Killer" CD, Roth wrote (I believe) four of the songs and was lead singer on "Hell Cat". His music abilities where fantastic! I may be incorrect but I think this may have been one of his last CDs with "Scorpions", although he also did play on "Taken By Force", which may have been done after "Virgin Killer". Anyways, should you be a Scorpions fan, BOTH "Virgin Killer" and "Taken by Force" are BOTH great CDs!By the way, should you like "ROTH'S" music, he also plays on "Fly to the Rainbow" and "In Trance" two more GREAT Scorpions CDs!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Album, not so great CD
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 more

4.0 out of 5 stars Some great songs, especially in your park
In your park should be remade, it's pretty goth for a metal band. When I first heard it it sounded almost like black sabbath. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Uli Roth is still around
They asked for a rating and I gave it, but the real purpose of this message is to say Uli Roth is still recording and touring with Sky of Avalon.
