iTunes Editors’ Notes

As Scorpions made the rounds of their farewell tour, they released this collection of re-recorded versions of their most infamous songs and tracks that influenced them along the way. The new recordings don't compromise the power of the originals—the playing is tight and concise—but they let fans of the originals have a fresh experience. The true joy here, however, is in the covers. Scorpions' take on the Gloria Jones–to–Soft Cell hit "Tainted Love" fits into the band's gameplan. T. Rex's "Children of the Revolution" has a tasty crunch. The Beatles' "Across the Universe" brings out the band's gentle side, creating a dreamlike weave appropriate to the tune's universal appeal. The Kinks' "All Day and All of the Night" already served as the prototype for heavy metal, so it's no surprise it sounds completely in place here. The Small Faces' "Tin Soldier" and The Rolling Stones' "Ruby Tuesday" capture Scorpions' ability to mix the hard and soft dynamics that made them a heavy metal/hard rock band of great taste. 

Customer Reviews

A fun album! Only for True fans...

Are they out for money? Who's to say? Are they out of creative ideas? Who knows, who cares! Listen people, especially those that cry, cry, cry about "they messed with the classics" or "They do it for the money, waaah", go and whine about it at your local pub and see if anyone cares.

On the other hand, I enjoyed these re-recordings, so it doesn't really matter. As for the covers, not bad at all....but I prefer the re-recordings on this album more. Overall, a nice little gift from the Scorps!!!! Fans should enjoy and not take them or this album so seriously! (unlike some of these other negative reviewers)

Don't Change Perfection

This is all about money. They figure that if they can't write good new stuff then let's tell everyone we freshened up the classics and made them better? Are they that desperate and we we that stupid? I have every albumn they ever made and when I sampled these newer versions I got angry with the band for this tactic for making money. I went to every concert and bought every albumn and now you want me to buy them again when they are perfect to begin with? I just lost respect for them. YOU DO NOT CHANGE CLASSICS!!! Especially when they are YOUR OWN!...
Idiots!!!
**After Thought**
And for those who don't agree with what i wrote it's obvious what generation you are from. No one from my generation wants to change songs that are already great. This newer generation with their dub step remakes and talentless thieves stealing beats because they can't be original wouldn't understand my way of thinking anyway. It doesn't matter that I said I owned all the Scorpion's music or been to every concert does it? Another thing this newer generation does is focus on the negative. I just voiced my opinion because it makes no sense what's happened with this new CD. So it is about the money and hat's just sad because this band has done it all twice over and this is what the newer generation did to my era of music. Forced them to do stuff they vowed never to do because you won't support the entire albumn or the band, just a song or two. You ruined it for them and my era. Thx for nothing.

I don't hate it. In fact i kinda of enjoyed being surprised here and there in the songs where i normally knew what to expect. Not bad, but one should give a hard listen to the originals and enjoy each in its origin. Has there been a better Rock band from Germany? LOVE their cover of "tainted love"! Enjoy!
