iTunes Editors’ Notes
Scorpions wrote at least a dozen fist-pumping rock tunes at the dawn of the '80s, but none were as catchy as 1984’s “Rock You Like a Hurricane.” With its tense, moody verses building to the ultimate sing-along chorus, “Hurricane” seemed to be the culmination of everything the group had been working toward since the 1979 release of Lovedrive. They were well rewarded: the song was a big hit, but it grew even bigger in the years to follow, becoming a pre-eminent emblem of '80s hard rock. The only downside to “Hurricane” was that it overshadowed the rest of the album. Producer Dieter Dierks gave the music more texture and atmosphere this time around. Dynamic songs like “Bad Boys Running Wild” and “The Same Thrill” surge from the speakers, electrified by Rudolph Schenker’s missile-like guitar leads. Singer Klaus Meine had a great voice for ballads, as proven by the finale, “Still Loving You,” a rare example of a power ballad that's as chilling as it is lustful.
I remember this album from back when I was 12 years old. This stuff rocks. Love at First Sting was definitely the best Scorps album that I can recall. I remember sitting down with my brother and friends playing Risk, dipping tobacco, drinking Coke, and playing this album from front to back several times in a row on a crisp fall night with the windows open. That's definitely the essense of the Scorps to me, a Crisp fall night and magical surroundings, but maybe that's just me. Anyway, buy it if you're into 80's metal, it's primo stuff! Da Chrisman
I was introduced to Scorpions by a high school buddy. As a black guy in "the hood," no one else could appreciate the guitars and great voice of Klaus Meine. The strangest part is that some family members thought the "hard rock" (as they called it) would lead me to drug use. I didn't even drink alcohol! Long live Scorpions; I'm Still Loving You!!
I grew up in an extremely conservative Christian home, and I had never liked hard rock - until I heard Scorpions' LOVE AT FIRST STING in my teens back in the 80's. Every single song on this album made my toes curl. To this day I still hate hard rock, but I will never stop loving this album!
