Following is my review of:
Scorpions – Comeblack
This is an unusual release for the Scorps, re-recording a number of fan favourite tracks after they announced their retirement…
Seven of the thirteen tracks are from their own catalogue, while the remaining six songs are covers! Being a fan for well over 25 years I find this difficult to swallow, given their discography, but accept it only given that this album demonstrates the band’s enthusiasm and passion for their music. The re-recordings are different, but still sound fresh, indicating that the Scorpions songs are still valid today. The covers are not bad (with the exception of “Tainted love” – avoid) and are listenable.
The only point I can see to the making of this album is the fact that the band isn’t ready to retire just yet, which I can live with, but then write new songs, please! For fans only.
