"Blackout" was the worldwide breakthrough for the Scorpions, followed by extensive touring. The question that needed an answer was, if all this will have an impact on the next studio release. It might had an effect, but for sure no bad one. "Love At First Sting" became one of the most commercialy successfull Scorions records that, again, was full of metal anthems that are hits till this day.

"Rock You Like a Hurricane", "Coming Home" and "Big City Nights" don't need any further explanation. Those tracks are omnipresent by still getting a lot of airplay. And not to forget one of the most played ballads - "Still Loving You".

And even though "I'm Leaving You" might not keep the extremely high level of the other songs, "Love at First Sting" became the expected next milestone of the Scorpions.

That the thrilling artwork was impressive for young dudes at that time goes without.

The bonus on this album is some songs from the show played at the legendary Madison Square Garden in New York City in 1984 plus again unreleased songs from the "Love at First Sting" session. An impressive collection.
