Scorpions - Blackout


Line-up:
Klaus Meine (vocals)
Rudolf Schenker (acoustic & electric guitars, background vocals)
Matthias Jabs (acoustic & electric guitars)
Francis Buchholz (bass)
Herman Rarebell (drums).

Recorded at Villa San Pecaire, St. Jacques-Grasse, France and Dierks Studios, Cologne, Germany

This album is one of the greatest metal releases of all-time. The opening 7 tracks are pure classic and the highlights are 'Blackout', 'No one like you', 'Now' & 'Dynamite'. For me, what stops this from being the best is the last 2 songs, both filler. 'China White' is a knock-off shot at 'Dazed & Confused' while '...Smoke' is a dull ballad that fails to ignite. However, Jabs played a blinder on this, Rudi was churning out great riffs and Meine has never sounded better.
