Scorpions – Unbreakable 
By Zane Ewton

Who said the Scorpions couldn't come out with an album, arguably 20 years past their arena headlining days that is youthful, optimistic, rocking and completely enjoyable?

That is exactly what they have done with Unbreakable.  These songs fuse all of the elements that made the Scorpions great.  The Scorpions are all about loud riff-rock that has one goal, to rock you from your head to your toes.  If you don’t believe them listen to the chorus of “Blood Too Hot”.  “Your blood is too hot/ Stand up and rock with me.”

It is hard to disregard the Scorpion’s purpose when the riffs are so big and the songs are so optimistic.  This really is an “up” album that lets Klause Meine demonstrate his voice that hasn’t lost a single step with age.

Lead-off track “New Generation” is a have song calling the youth of the world to step up and make a difference.  Granted, the band can be cheesy at times but the cheese is always genuine.  There’s nothing cheesy about the guitars though.  The first five songs are demonstrations of the guitar prowess of Rudolph Schenker and Matthias Jabbs.

Unbreakable loses momentum with the overdramatic piano-ballad “Maybe I Maybe You.”  But “Someday is Now” picks the pace back up.  Unfortunately another ballad brings the album down.  Out of the three ballads on the album, only one is memorable and probably would have been a hit 15 years ago, “She Said.”

The album ends on a high note with “Remember the Good Times” an ode to a bygone era that most Scorpions fans will remember.

Unbreakable really is a fun album--The kind of metal album to party with, which is something that has been sorely missed.  Rock and roll fans deserve more albums like this.  Just leave the ballads at home next time.
