Scorpions – Unbreakable

Reviewed: July 2004
Released: 2004, Sanctuary Records
Rating: 4.5/5
Reviewer: Celtic Bob

German Hard Rockers return with an excellent album. This is their first for Sanctuary Records. Being a very casual fan of theirs I was somewhat interested in hearing this cd. When I popped it into my player I was pleasantly surprised. This is the best thing I’ve heard from them since themed 80’s when songs like “Rock You Like A Hurricane” and “Big City Nights” ruled the airwaves.
The disc starts off with a mid tempo rocker which is a fairly good indication of what to expect from the disc but is a bit mellower than what I was used to. It is a far cry from the sappy ballads that they did in the 90’s. They have returned to the greatness of earlier albums like BLACKOUT and LOVE AT FIRST STING which is refreshing to hear. The album contains killer cuts such as “New Generation”, “Love ‘em or Leave ‘em” and “”Can You Feel It”. There is even an amazing piano laden balled entitled “Maybe I Maybe You” which is simply amazing. This is one of the best ballads I’ve heard in a long time.
This cd features some great guitar work from Jabs and Schenker and Klaus proves that his vocals are stronger now then ever. This disc will win back some fans they lost in the past few years and will definitely gain a few new ones. This is the way an album should be.
