Phantom 5 - 2016 Phantom 5
Phantom 5 should be given an opportunity for those of you with a longing for German melodic hard rock, reinvented in 2016.

Scorpions, The - 1976 Virgin Killer
This was their fourth studio album, with the few years of experience and professionalism now starting to show. As a measure of their popularity, this album is held in high regard among their earlier works.

Scorpions, The - 1978 Tokyo Tapes
I'm of the opinion and I know many agree, this is one of the greatest hard rock live albums of all time..

Scorpions, The - 1979 Lovedrive
However, for what it's worth, The Scorpions deliver one of their finest records of their vast discography. Consider also it was a record delivered under duress.

Scorpions, The - 1982 Blackout
Obviously one of the most well known metal albums of the 1980's, but considering The Scorpion's inability to pen a consistent album since 1984 it might be vaguely tempting to suggest that it's easy to forget what a fine band they once were.

Scorpions, The - 1984 Love At First Sting
Looking back on the 1984 calendar, German band The Scorpions had reached the pinnacle of their career with this album 'Love At First Sting'. Many punters were saying 'how could they possibly top 1982's 'Blackout' album? Well they did, but it wasn't without pain.

Scorpions, The - 1985 World Wide Live
1985 was a great year for live recordings, with this one and ,b>Iron Maiden's 'Live After Death' topping my list.

Scorpions, The - 1988 Savage Amusement
It was a long extended break for German mainstays The Scorpions during the mid 80's. One could forgive the band for taking time out as it wasn't until 1988 that the band reappeared with 'Savage Amusement'..

Scorpions, The - 1996 Pure Instinct
What persuaded the band to record an album like this is a mystery. In 1996 the world was crying out for an album like 'Blackout' or even 'Savage Amusement'. Instead they went the opposite direction and wimped out to a degree that has never been seen before or since. The Scorpions apparently decided an album full of ballads was required. Many may cite 1999's 'Eye II Eye' as their nadir, but nothing comes close to this shocking display by a band who seemingly forgot they were once a heavy metal band.

Scorpions, The - 2007 Humanity: Hour I
Proving that 2004's superb 'Unbreakable' was no fluke, the Scorps have come up with an album that defies the odds.

Scorpions, The - 2010 Sting In The Tail
'Sting In The Tail' may appear to be the final hurrah for German rock giants The Scorpions..

Scorpions, The - 2014 MTV Unplugged In Athens
The novelty value of these albums expired back in 1995 and to be honest there was no novelty to start with. With the whole retirement angle now null and void it seems there's nowhere to go for the Scorpions except further into parody and redundancy. After all when was their last real classic? 1984?

Scorpions, The - 2015 Return To Forever
This is the same album you've heard from the band multiple times and while it's more basic hard rock than some of the 70's and 00's material, that doesn't mean it's anything special.
