"Blackout" just flat out kicks butt and is one of the best metal albums of the 80's."

Blackout, their eighth studio album, is Scorpions at their peak...
it is the band's 1982 break-through album that made them global
superstars. Every song is a gem and this album contains a splendid
balance of pop/rock, power ballads and catchy heavy metal. Scorpions
dish-out catchy fist-poundin' anthems like the top ten hit "No One
Like You
" then turn around and offer the soul stirring ballad "When
the Smoke is Going Down
".

Klaus Meine is a singer who knows how to wring the last ounce of
impact from each song. The band sounds great as highlighted by the
fast-paced performances of guitarists Rudolf Schenker and Matthias
Jabs
. Herman Rarebell and Francis Buchholz add a tight and powerful
drum and bass bottom."Blackout" is the band's heaviest and most solid
album and Dieter Dierks' production is immaculate.

A self-portrait of artist Gottfried Helnwein is featured on the cover
of the album.

"This is not only crunchy metal...it's classic rock music."
