I'm glad you like the new record. But to me this sounds nothing like 80's (classic) era Scorpions. In the 80's they were innovating and had edge, with Savage amusement a possible exception. The new album strikes me as a retread of slick, over produced radio fodder, like Crazy World, but not done nearly as well.

I believe he did Striker's "Armed to the Teeth" a couple years ago. That sounded excellent (even if compressed).

I think artists are increasingly recognizing that 14-20 song albums don't work, and are resorting to 10-12 song formats, which to me is a fantastic change. short, sweet, and cohesive. If the band was more popular, I think you'd see a separate physical release that included the bonus tracks (like a deluxe version; or dual cd release).

As mentioned above, I strongly recommend Rock the House Live, which is a fantastic live album, consisting of material mostly from this album.

NMHTP was my first Stryper record - not a fan of the band, but this is a good record. About as good as the very good Sweet Lynch release.

I enjoyed all three, for different reasons. Probably 1. Nostradamus - in part due to the ambition 2. Redeemer of Souls 3. Angel of Retribution

It's a good cd. All 10 tracks are listenable with a few standouts. Recommended.

That's a lot of songs. Would have preferred just 8 good ones.

Iron Maiden was a nostalgic act until they wrote good music and consistently played it live. If you make good new music, fans will respond.

This is no "Bad Boys Running Wild." I like the band, but they sound completely uninspired.

Note that the user ratings on Allmusic for both those records are fairly high, or at least on par with most of the other albums. For Unlawful and Balance were both highly celebrated when they came out, navigating the changing musical waters of the 1990s, as evidenced by the airplay and sales they received (both went triple platinum). I would say Balance is the stronger, more consistent eff

The "Killing is My Business" remaster is easily the most valued of them all - the original sounded terrible (although some like the bad production). The remaster (remix) sounds so much better (although the sound is compressed). It also has a much more appropriate cover. The major downside are the added demos stuck at the end.

About three songs or 20 minutes too long.

If he's a member of a church, he wouldn't be homeless or ill-fed. It seems like there are some facts missing.

The reason is that many here are "album listeners." Listening to 60+ minutes of hit and miss music is not generally enjoyable. However, listening to 40 or so minutes of good music is. Moreover, even if all 40 minutes are not super stellar, the mere fact that it is shorter means more spins, and likely a greater grower appeal than a 60+ minute workout. This is particularly true with short

I attended as well. Observations: 1. Rob moved around a LOT more than he ever did - especially recently. Richie igniting a flame in Rob? Glenn and Ian sort of just stood there, but Richie also was incredibly enthusiastic, moving around, etc. 2. Rob sounded great, especially after about four songs into it. His voice has healed up or gotten rested. He really sounded good to me. 3. The song

Striker is out with another album - City of Gold. If you're interested in retro-metal, with a thrash element, I strongly recommend Striker's new LP "City of Gold." https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HTkaGUVR5TY They've been on tour with Metallica, and really deliver the goods live and in the studio.

Yup. Sound quality sucks. Compressed. Too many ballads, but I like this one slightly better than the last one (which was also pretty good). 3.5/5.

Yup, last cd was killer - critically and commercially successful. They'll come together for another cd, when.. not sure.. but they'll do it if for no other reason that the money is there.

Thanks. That pretty much lived up to the hype. I'll be looking in to the Best Buy version. It woulda been nice had they just release a 10-song lp and kept the best songs on it.
