Best Scorpions Albums


The Top Ten

1 Blackout

Lots of great albums to choose from but for me this is their best album, the one that introduced me to their music. I think Love At First Sting might have sold better and had more hit singles but this album plays better start to finish. If Rudolf Shenker considers it his best work, then who am I to disagree. Fantastic!

Lots of scorpion albums to choose from however this is the one.

My head explodes, my ears ring
I can't remember just where I've been
The last thing that I recall
I got lost in a deep black hole

2 Love at First Sting

Best Scorpions album. Lots of cool songs on it - Userguy44

Obviously their best - bobbythebrony

All the best songs are here.Rock you like a hurricane,Still loving you

3 Animal Magnetism

This has my 2 favorite scorpions songs "falling in love" and "lady starlight" so I must vote for it. The Blackout album probably might be tied for 1st with this one. They both Rock hard. This band and these 2 albums are wheat got me into hard rock and metal.

Can't go wrong with Lovedrive, Animal Magnetism, Blackout and Love At First Sting. So many good songs. Personally my favorite song is Animal Magnetism.

The melodies in many songs on this albums are so beautiful much better than in love at first sting. This is an inspired album. The singers voice goes deeper and higher in melodies than with lovedrive.. The songs on this albums are better and more inspired than most of the songs in lovedrive.

4 Lovedrive

Loving you sunday morning, coast to coast, holiday, what else can I say, its the best


5 Savage Amusement
6 Crazy World

100% songs

7 In Trance

This album is so very special and containts the absolute best guitar work from Uli Jon Roth and Rudolf Schenker. Listen to songs as Longing For Fire and Evening Wind as well the Title Track or the ending part of Top of the Bill. It's absolutely the best Scorpions album no doubt!

8 Taken by Force

Great album! Sadly the pre 1979 they don't get enough credit. If you don't know Uli it is time to listen to the album. I don't think there is a bad song on the album. We'll Burn the Sky and the Sails of Charon always blow me away. Check out some of the old performances on YouTube.

One of the best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal bands from 74 to 84!

Taken By Force is their best album and the songs on this album are Scorpions most covered songs by other artists

Maybe not their finest hour, but definitely top 8!

Really dig this album. There's allot of great song on it. "We were born to fly" is just one of them. It's one of my favorites.

A good album with consistent songs. Serious and conceptual unlike most Scorpion albums.

Maybe best Scorpions album ever. Great futuristic album with awesome production a fantastic songs like Hour 1, We Were Born To Fly or The Fututre Never dies.
