One of my favorite bands. Matt on vocals here, which I've always liked all their vocalists to a capacity, but he's really tight on this track. What can I say? Everything is nearly perfect, from harmonies to guitar-work. 10/10

@Magic (one of my favorites too is Crimson Glory, as you know. And you are so right about the unique recording method... iirc, I think he used both live sampling and something else. It's why it sounds so impeccable.)

Very pleasant ballad from Scorpions. Hauntingly beautiful singing from Klaus and an overall sublime, trance-like experience to listen through. 9/10!

@Magic (I PM'ed you about it)

It’s ok. Climbing! Isn’t my favorite, that honor goes to Nantucket Sleighride and their newer more polished sounding albums. That being said…I still rate the debut highly.
Never In My Life had songwriting help from Pappalardi’s wife….who also did the cover art.
8/10

It starts like the soundtrack to horror movie, but then it becomes a powerful heavy-prog song. Really memorable. 8/10.

Dunno….i’m going to listen again without the video. The video makes me go, WTH! :cool:
Experimental with some prog elements and some funky beats, too. Weird riffs, and a vocal collage. I appreciate the genius of the newness (For me anyway) 7.5/10

Nice choice. A favorite from that album, as Schenker is really getting down here, awesome track. Most Scorpions/UFO material gets at least 9/10 for me, and so it is. 9/10!
