"This was a very hard C.D. to find. But finally found it to replace the tape of the same name that was lost. I grew up in the "80's",& when a friend played one song called,"The Zoo",I really loved that song right away,& then listening to the rest,which back then I didnt know who they were at 15, I loved this record!!! There are some songs from the C.D. that werent my fav's, but enough to have to have it again. Make it real,Dont make no promises your body cant keep,Falling in Love,Only a man,The Zoo,Lady Starlight,I love those the most,they are really good "HEAVY METAL MUSIC",the other 3 are not bad at all,(Hold me tight,20th century man,Animal Magnetism,are also good,but everyone has their fav's. There are 9 tracks,& if Ive been looking for this, this long,then I think its worth every penny.The Scorpions do an excellent job ,the music is hard rocking metal as they are,the songs are unique,and I really love this C.D.,& Iam glad I finally found a copy. If you like "80's" HARD ROCK,then The Scorpions,"Animal Magnetism",wont be a disappointment!!!!

Animal Magnetism (1980.) Scorpions' seventh album.
Normally replacing band members can result in instant doom for a band. The Scorpions are one of the few bands that didn't have to face such a tragedy. Their new guitarist, Matthias Jabs, had more than proven to be a competent replacement for his predecessor, Ulrich Jon Roth. Their recent album, Lovedrive, had proven this well. And in 1980, the band released its seventh album - Animal Magnetism. Read on for my review.
Unlike the previous Lovedrive album, which experimented with a number of styles, just about every track featured on this album explores the same style - classic hard power rock. One of the band's earliest big hits, the rocker known as The Zoo, can be found on this album. This is one of the band's most popular songs to date, as well as one of their finest. A number of other excellent rockers can also be found on this album, including the excellent opening track Make It Real. The album's other rockers, including Twentieth Century Man, Falling in love, and the title track, are equally excellent. There is only one ballad to be found on this album, but it's one of their finest tracks of the styling - a little number entitled Lady Starlight. This is the band at its slowest and most melodic, but it's still an excellent song, and in my opinion, better than the other ballads they would score later in the decade. All the way through, this is an excellent album, and though it lacks the substance of its predecessor, Lovedrive, it's more than worthy of a score of four point five.
To put it simply, this is an album worth owning if you like the Scorpions for their hard rock material. Through and through, this album sticks with a style similar to what other power rock bands of the eighties would use, so if you like eighties hard rock, it's extremely likely that you will like this album. Don't pass it by; it's a Scorpions masterpiece.

This is the Scorpions album that launched their US popularity. This is a leather wearing, head bangin, your parents won't like it rock and roll album. While not the scorpions greatest album, this is a must have for anyone who enjoys 80's rock.

"ANIMAL MAGNETISM" from 1980 is one of Scorpions better albums. It continues where the previous "LOVE DRIVE" left off, and this time the band managed to do the best of the material they got. On this album you'll find some of Scorpions strongest tunes like the groovy "Only a man", the furious "Don't make no promises", the catchy "Make it real", and the heavy "The zoo". Maybe Scorpions developed into a pop metal band along the way (at least according to some people) but that is not the case when it comes to "ANIMAL MAGNETISM". And this album is certainly not a sell out, but a very fine link in the chain towards the excellent "BLACKOUT" and "LOVE AT FIRST STING". Turn it up and enjoy!

ANIMAL MAGNETISM is the second Scorpions's album featuring new lead guitarrist Matthias Jabs. It's straight ahead har rock / metal, with the usual melodic lines used by the band. It's a gem.
But this remastered version added nothing to the brilliantship of the album. It seems muffled.

Animal Magnetism is one of my favorite Scorpions CD's. With tracks such as "Make It Real" and "The Zoo", this CD introduces some of the heaviest of the Scorpions work and among their best.

There are only about 3 songs in there that are truly masterpieces like The Zoo. The others are just plain boring. Lady Starlight is okay too, but not the best.
