Digitally remastered edition of the German rockers' first album following the departure of Uli Jon Roth and the band took a more commercial approach to their recording method. The high energy style flew in the face of the disco times when the album was released (1979) and found a big audience with disco disaffected youth. This reissue includes the original "bubblegum nipple" artwork which was later censored and substituted in the U.S.

Following the release of their 1978 Taken By Force album, the Scorpions lost a valuable member of their band - the guitar virtuoso known as Ulrich Jon Roth. And thus began a transitional period for the heavy metal greats. During the sessions of their next studio album, they would hire new guitarist Matthias Jabs, fire him, replace him with original lead guitarist Michael Schenker, only to have him depart and end up rehiring Jabs. With their transitional period, did they create an excellent album of new stylings, or one of the blunders of their career? Read on for my review of Lovedrive.
So many changes for one band in just one year, and yet they manage to whip out another excellent album! What are the odds of that? The band kicks things off with one of their very first big hits, Loving You Sunday Morning. This is straight-up classic metal with a slight melodic touch, making for one of their finest tracks ever recorded. And, of course, as with any Scorpions album (or any album by any band, for that matter), the non-hits are equally excellent. Track number two, Another Piece Of Meat, is Led Zeppelin-esque hard rock at its finest. Most of the tracks featured on the album are fast and furious hard power rockers that are sure to please any fan of the genre. One of the finest tracks of this styling is the title track. The band also tries their hand at ballads, one of which is the final track on the album, Holiday. This ballad is an underrated one, far superior to anything they would record in the next decade. All in all, this is one of the band's finest records.
There are two versions of this album, but they differ only in their cover art.Read more ›
Take note ; each of these "50th" reissue titles come in two versions ; one version with, and one version without the bonus DVD. The bonus audio tracks are standard inclusions. So, if you see any title priced higher than another of the same title, take a closer look, the difference may be the DVD.
