Less brutal than the two previous albums, this one is nonetheless an underappreciated treat. Sure, there are some weak cuts, but there are plenty of strong ones to make up for it. Among the highlights of the disc are the energetic anthem "Steamrock Fever" and the growling song of androgyny "He's a Woman, She's a Man." The highlight of the disc, though, is "We'll Burn

Overview

Less brutal than the two previous albums, this one is nonetheless an underappreciated treat. Sure, there are some weak cuts, but there are plenty of strong ones to make up for it. Among the highlights of the disc are the energetic anthem "Steamrock Fever" and the growling song of androgyny "He's a Woman, She's a Man." The highlight of the disc, though, is "We'll Burn the Sky." This one is lyrically quite similar to the Blue Oyster Cult classic "Don't Fear the Reaper," but the music is a wonderfully building anthemic ballad. It is arguably one of the finest songs the Scorpions have ever done.

Have this on old LP. Loved all songs, Ulrich's guitar carves.

An amazing album indeed! The dark sounding "Steamrock Fever" starts it. Uli wrote one of the best early Scorpions tunes in "Sails Of Charon" with a hugely influential solo that must be heard! Full of fast diminished runs! "He's A Wonam, She's A Man" contains a proto trash metal riff! One of my favorites is the haunting "The Riot Of Your Time" and the rebellious rocker "I've Got To Be Free"!
