Blackout, their eighth studio album, is Scorpions at their peak. Blackout is the band's 1982 breakthrough album that made them global superstars. Every song is a gem and this album contains a splendid balance of pop/rock, power ballads, and catchy heavy metal. Scorpions dish out catchy fist-pounding anthems like the top ten hit "No One Like You" then turn around and offer the soul stirring ballad "When the Smoke Is Going Down."
Klaus Meine is a singer who knows how to wring the last ounce of impact from each song. The band sounds great as highlighted by the fast-paced performances of guitarists Rudolf Schenker and Matthias Jabs. Herman Rarebell and Francis Buchholz add a tight and powerful drum and bass bottom. "Blackout" is the band's heaviest and most solid album. Dieter Dierks' production is immaculate.
A self-portrait of artist Gottfried Helnwein is featured on the cover of the album.
"Blackout has arguably been called the Scorpions' best record ever, and that statement is not unjust -- it has more energy than anything else they have ever released." -Barry Weber, allmusic.com
