I was very interested to here what this CD was like. Having bought Metallica S&M and listened to that almost incessantly for a month. I wondered whether The Scorpions were attempting to reach the same giddy heights or whether they were just cashing in. I have to say, disappointingly, the latter is the case. There are a couple of stand-out tracks (esp. Send Me An Angel which earns one of the above stars by itself) but the majority sound like they've simply hired rent-an-orchestra and left them to it. This is in stark contrast to the Metallica offering which blends the sweeping strings and leaping horns with the original music in such a way as to make them seemingly inseperable. Maybe this isn't the fault of the Scorps themselves but they should never have allowed this CD to have been released. Lastly, 10 tracks?! Come one - you're just not trying! Sorry lads, thanks but no thanks.
