SCORPIONS - Rock Believer (Japan Edition) 2022
2022 will be a landmark year for the legendary band. January 22, 2022, marks the 50 year anniversary for the Scorpions debut "Lonesome Crow", which quickly sent the band far beyond the German borders and kickstarted the band's impressive international career. To date, Scorpions have sold more than 110 million albums, played over 5,000 concerts in more than 80 countries, delivered massive hits such as "Wind Of Change", "Rock You Like A Hurricane", "No One Like You", and practically caused a major baby boom in France in 1984 when they released one of the world's best rock ballads "Still Loving You".
Rock Believer, coming seven years later and in the 50th anniversary year of Scorpions' first album, shows there is no fuel shortage - with, in fact, "Gas in the Tank," the blazing opening track that references Trans Ams, "slam, bam, thank you ma'am" and urges "Let's play it louder and play it hard ... There's gotta be more gas in the tank" while celebrating the camaraderie forged over the decades. The rest of Rock Believer keeps that faith, with blistering riffs, pounding anthems and stinging guitar interplay between Rudolf Schenker and Matthias Jabs that make Scorpions sound more like heavy-rock evangelists than believers, happy to still rock us like ... well, a hurricane. It's as if Scorpions' songwriting tandem Meine and guitarist Rudolf Schenker want to defy their years (both are 73) and prove that there is no statute of limitations on their craft, even if they're better advised to let the audience handle the actual act of headbanging.
In the buyer-beware department, meanwhile, Rock Believer is better in its standard 11-track version than the limited deluxe edition, which adds five songs including an acoustic rendering of "When You Know (Where You Come From)." Of the bonuses, only "Crossing Borders" holds up alongside the main album, and while the others have merit, it's also easy to see why they were held back for add-ons. It's pleasing to say that Scorpions are still true believers and still have the goods to convert others. "Be true to yourself, it's your life," Meine advises in "When You Know" - and his band is doing exactly that. 041b061a72
