    It fluctuates between powerslave if eternity should fail and Empire. However I will vote for the one which Impressed me the most upon first listen being powerslave

    365 Albums In One Year

    I have been a huge Scorpions fan for the past 6 years or so when I first tried listening to hard rock and metal. The album is as good if not better today than it was back then. The entire run from Fly To The Rainbow - Love At First Sting including the 2 live albums is amazing. I'd say they have...

    365 Albums In One Year

    Having seen them live I can say that while their records have many catchy songs their true talent is in putting on an amazing show full of hits and energy! Personally they don’t hold up versus Def Lep or Bon Jovi from the same era but they are definitely a good band
