Scorpions were a much more interesting band than this compilation would have you believe. Where's "Speedy's Coming"? Where's "In Trance"? Sure, you'll get the hits, "Big City Nights", "Still Loving You"...boring and predictable. Pick up Box Of Scorpions instead if you're a true rock fan.

If you're only looking for the radio hits...well, here they are.

2 stars.

I'll say it right away; I'm not really a fan of the 20th Century Masters collection series of albums, they are a series of greatest hits albums of many bands and artists from the 20th Century (like Aerosmith, Kiss...) that you can get at every Wall-Mart under $10. I would most often prefer an actual compilation rather than any of those in the series but I've got to admit that they do give a few of a certain band's hits at an affordable price and sometimes that's all that's really needed. Some of those collections do a better job at representing a band than other do in these greatest hits series; somehow some turn out better than others. 20th Century Masters The Millennium Collection: The Best of Scorpions offers Scorpions `biggest hits at a very low price and is not a bad purchase for a casual fan or someone on a budget.Those 12 songs are mostly from the band's post 1983-early 1990's era during which they were very successful with many of their videos on heavy rotation on MTV, excellent singles and a string of great albums like "Love At First Sting". Here you get what you paid for; a few of the band's hits, a healthy mix between rockers like "Rock You Like A Hurricane" and "Big City Nights" and ballads like "Still Loving You" and "Wind of Change". The hits are here and that's about it really, don't look for anything from their edgier 70's material (there is one song from this era on this disc but that's all) this compilation overlooks this era (Scorpions made some great music during that time as well that is worth checking out) but it was to be expected from an inexpensive greatest hits album. 3 stars, a decent compilation for the price if you're looking for just the hits this is what you're looking for, if you're a fan you may want to get something more comprehensive of the band's career like Scorpions Gold it all depends on what you want.

The Scorpions are easily one of the superpowers of arena rock. For nearly four decades (you read that right), these guys have been dishing out some of the finest tracks in hard rock history. To date, no single-disc compilation has represented the band too well though. Unfortunately, this CD, part of the ultimately disappointing twentieth century masters series, isn't gonna change that. Read on for pros and cons of the compilation.
First and foremost, the pros. This is a compilation from Germany's finest hard rock band. Most of the band's major hits (Rock You Like A Hurricane, The Zoo, Loving You Sunday Morning, No One Like You, Still Loving You, Big City Nights, Rhythm Of Love, their cover of the Who classic I Can't Explain, Wind Of Change, Send Me An Angel (this is not the same song as the one of the same name by Real Life,) and Tease Me Please Me) are featured in this compilation. The best thing about this compilation is that it's single disc, yet it has just about every major hit the band has ever done. Being single disc, it is a better value than any of the two-disc compilations.
Unfortunately, the compilation isn't perfect. It doesn't fill the eighty minutes that can fit on a CD. And, like most band's greatest hits albums, the songs are horribly out of their original order of release. It can't be that hard to keep them in order, people. And then there's the flaw that every Scorpions hits compilation suffers from - NO TRACKS FROM THE MICHAEL SCHENKER AND ULI ROTH ERAS! That means the first five albums the band released have ZERO REPRESENTATION. What a shame. Likewise, Hurricane 2000, from the Moment Of Glory album, is missing in action. I thought it was a fairly big hit.

Its hard to imagine that I'd criticize a best hits album by one of the greatest metal bands of all time. Its not that the songs they've chosen aren't good...the radio friendly standards of Rock You Like a Hurricane and No One Like You should always be on a greatest hits album. But to include the sappy ballads that characterized their late 80's and early 90's work as opposed to the absolutely masterful things that they came out with in the 70s is ridiculous. How about just one song from their 1972 debut, Lonesome Crow? How about the haunting In Trance from the album of the same name? Who hasnt heard Drifting Sun from Fly to the Rainbow and not been blown away.
Anybody wanting to catch the real best of the Scorpions would be well served by spending a little more and getting acquainted with their earlier work. The Scorpions became a hair band, but managed to forge the fundamental backbone of European heavy metal in the 70s.
Rush right out now and buy Fly To The Rainbow, Virgin Killer, and In Trance. Lonesome Crow, if you can find it will blow your mind.

Along with Def Leppard and Tesla, these guys were the best of the so-called "hair metal" genre. The main thing I like about them in comparison to other bands of this ilk (even as compared to the aforementioned two) is that they didn't sound like every other band. Their music wasn't near as cheesy as, say, Whitesnake, Motley Crue, or, worst of all, Poison, (though it was still pretty cheesy, after all it is hair metal), and the vocals more closely resembled that of European power metal, like Helloween, moreso than the average glam wailer. Anyhow, these guys made some really cool music. They had some good hard-driving rhythms that are good for getting the old head banging, and some really good solos (say what you will about hair metal, but they always did manage to have some really good solos). And, of course, you have the ballads. I think "Believe in Love" and "Send Me an Angel" are a bit too corny for me, but "Still Loving You" and "Wind of Change" are just amazing. I think "Wind of Change" has got to be the best hair metal ballad ever written. It's not some mushy love song (in fact, I'm really not sure what it's about, nostalgia, perhaps?), and the vocal work is just bone-chilling. Okay, the whistling is a bit goofy (it works in GNR's "Patience", but here it sounds like he's calling Lassie), but everything else about the song is perfect. All in all, this greatest hits package makes for a pleasant listen.Read more ›
