Moment of Glory

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - David Sprague
They're big, loud, bombastic, and sometimes crude -- which makes them a perfect complement to the Scorpions. But seriously, while the combination of the Berlin Philharmonic and their most malevolent metallic homeboys may sound like a stretch in theory, in practice, it's every bit as effective a hybrid as, say, Metallica's similar experiment on S&M. Part of the success stems from the fact that the Scorps decided to concentrate on their slightly less volatile material, including pumped-up power ballads such as "Send Me an Angel" on which tiny terror Klaus Meine duets with Euro balladeer Zucchero and "Still Loving You."

They're big, loud, bombastic, and sometimes crude -- which makes them a perfect complement to the Scorpions. But seriously, while the combination of the Berlin Philharmonic and their most malevolent metallic homeboys may sound like a stretch in theory, in practice, it's every bit as effective a hybrid as, say, Metallica's similar experiment on S&M. Part of the success stems from the fact that the Scorps decided to concentrate on their slightly less volatile material, including pumped-up power ballads such as "Send Me an Angel" on which tiny terror Klaus Meine duets with Euro balladeer Zucchero and "Still Loving You." This ten-tune compendium does have moments of all-out abandon, most notably an update of "Rock You Like a Hurricane" -- retitled "Hurricane 2000" for the occasion -- that's outfitted with a lavish overture that almost makes Meine's pleas for oral pleasure sound classy. A pair of duets with Lyn Liechty the German equivalent of Broadway star Betty Buckley make for some grating listening, but in the end, Moment of Glory is probably enough of a curiosity piece to turn die-hard Scorp-heads on to the pleasures of a smokin' oboe line. Coaxing head-bangs out of the Philharmonic audience, on the other hand, is a bit less likely.
All Music Guide - Steve Huey
On the heels of Metallica's similarly conceived S&M comes the Scorpions' Moment of Glory, a presentation of past favorites plus three new songs with full orchestral backing courtesy of the Berlin Philharmonic. The rock instrumentation blends in best on the ballads, but some of the up-tempo rockers can also be pretty exciting, if a little bombastic. That said, the Scorpions' music isn't always complex enough to suggest interesting ways of augmenting the original arrangements -- but since this is more a specialty item for diehards in the first place, that won't likely matter in the end. Some fans may be disappointed that Klaus Meine gives way to guest vocalists on a couple of tunes, but overall, this is a variation on the Scorpions' signature sound that loyalists will probably enjoy quite a bit.
