From: Amy Redding Date: May 17, 2001 at 19:31
This one made the Scorps arena headliners in the USA. It's full of great songs--classic stuff like 'Hurricane' and 'Still Loving You.' Real rock fans need this one.

From: Dusty Date: July 10, 2001 at 16:51
This is a heavy metal classic The songs I like the most are Still Loving You,Big City Nights,Coming Home,Bad Boys Running Wild and of course The anthum Rock You Like a Hurricane.

From: dokken6008 Date: April 9, 2002 at 13:09
Obviously Scorpions biggest record of all-time--not necessarily my favorite, but there sure as hell are a lot of great tunes. Still it could use a better remastering than it was last given; it still sounded like an analog recording to me. A lot of wonderful stuff; lots of classics; but perhaps none of it amounts up to the bitchiness of the front cover. I always loved how that chick's tit is hanging out over her dress-top; beautiful stuff. 8.9/10

From: Kim Date: June 29, 2002 at 12:10
Nope. I hate this one. He sings like `his ``nuts`` are stuck in the zipper. Name me a descent german singer.???????? They all sing weird.

From: Rockforever Date: July 13, 2002 at 14:55
Just for ur information Kim,Klaus Meine sings great. By the way,this is the biggest selling,and probably the most commercial Scorpions albums,but it is one of their best.Bad Boys Running Wild kicks major ass and boasts a great riff (well,lets be honest it is the Scorps, so a great riff isn't a surprise).Rock You Like a Hurricane is a great anthem,as is Big City Nights.Still Loving You is one of the best rock ballads ever,while Crossfire is a more experimental track.Great playing,great rocknroll.

From: dokken6008 Date: July 21, 2002 at 7:50
Claus Lessman of Bonfire, Kim. I love that guy, he is so fuckin' great. As far as Scorpion's very own Klaus Meine, I think that he has improved with age.

From: Kim Date: August 17, 2002 at 2:51
Could be that youre right, I just hate it when bands turn toooo comercial. Which I think they did here.Track 1,2,6 all sound the same. Ive seen them live tons of times. First in 1974 (Huh) as starters for The Sweet. NOW THAT ROCKED. Later they turned into a band where you should pick out a lighter 3-4 times during their concerts and sing along. Im more into the Accept way of doing things. Full speed ahead.

From: The Fizzy One Date: September 16, 2002 at 19:41
I don't like this one nearly as much as BLackout, although, to be sure, there ARE some great tunes on here. I just don't find myself listening to this as often as BLackout though. Best song here? 'Still Lovin' You' hands down.

From: robert Date: October 21, 2002 at 18:31
con temas como estos se construyo poco a poco el hard rock. uno de mis grupos favoritos, discos como este demuestran por que son tan geniales. STILL LOVING YOU sin comentarios.

From: Bilboker Date: March 11, 2003 at 19:42
Sensacional disco que asentaria las bases del Hard Rock. Magnifico, Mis favoritas, Bad Boys Running Wild, Rock You Like A Hurricane, Big City Nights, coming home o mi balada favorita STILL LOVING YOU

From: ALEJANDRO Date: March 26, 2003 at 19:01
MAGNIFICO ALBUM DEL HARD ROCK DE LOS 80. NUNCA OLVIDARE LA ACTTUACION EN BRASIL 1985. 250.000 PERSONAS CANTANDO 'STILL LOVING YOU' FUE REALMENTE INCOMPARABLE. SCORPIONS BANDA PIONERA EN CUANTO A BALADAS. DESPUES DE 'STILL..' CUALQUIER GRUPO DE HARD ROCK INCLUYO UNA O DOS POR PLACA. HASTA ESTE DISCO EVOLUCIONARON, DE AQUI EN MAS NADA FUE LO MISMO, SE REPITIERON A SI MISMOS HASTA EL HARTAZGO, PERDIENDO FUERZA Y ORIGINALIDAD. carro_martin@yahoo.com.ar

From: steve Date: April 16, 2003 at 17:49
greatest from the scorpions, rock you like a hurricane and big city nights are my favorites.

From: Metal Pete Date: January 8, 2004 at 19:00
Great songs on here, at this point I think Scorps were my favorite band, because I liked all their stuff including this one. After this one though, things went awry. This should definitely be in your collection, after you buy BLACKOUT first. ;-)

From: bateman Date: April 27, 2004 at 11:15
This one is one of the best pieces of German rock'n'roll (believe me, I'm German myself). The complete digital production leaves the guitars a little bit thin, but these songs like "Rock you like a hurricane" or "Big city lights" as well as their ballad "Sill loving you" still leave their mark 20 years after. The tasty cover was made by Helmut Newton, the famous designer, by the way.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 29, 2004 at 18:18
The Scorpions continue a streak of great albums, but their is one problem here. You can tell that they are starting to get lazy ("Bad Boys Running Wild") and the production is becoming more polished. Still, you can't complain about an album too much with songs like ("Rock You Like A Hurricane", "Still Loving You", and "Big City Nights"). 9/10

From: Rocker76 Date: June 30, 2004 at 12:30
Finally, we agree!! One of the best hard rock albums from the 80s period. The Scorpions finally get the credit they deserved w/ this monstrous 80s metal album chock-full of anthems, ballads, etc. Not a bad song on this one. If there is a list of required 80s metal, this one should def. be near the top.

From: jack Date: August 11, 2004 at 6:09
What a great album!The scorpions is one of the only few hard rock/metal bands that never dissapoint me,from their lonesome crow album all the way to unbreakable. This album is so brutallic,yet so melodic. Rock you like a hurricane should be the best metal songs in 1984 along with wasp's love machine and dokken's into the fire. The guitar and drum is great. The melodic big city nights and the excellent still loving you ballad are the second best. Man,i just like animals like scorpions.

From: Dean Date: August 12, 2004 at 12:33
The Scorps last great studio album-IMO. They lost me after World Wide Live but until then it was kick ass. "Big City Nights" has to be one of the best cruising tunes ever. Talk about taking me back to memory lane. "I'm leaving you" and "Crossfire" were also awesome tunes. Man-i wish they still wrote like this. The new acoustic album is really good too-suprised the hell out of me.

I have a hard time deciding whether I like this or Blackout better. I think I'd give a slight edge to this for consistency alone. Truly classic hard rock that every hard rock fan should own. They were totally firing on all cylinders here, monster riffs, killer choruses, the works. It's true they never approached this level of greatness after this, but then IMHO this was an awful tough act to follow...

From: AOR freaky Date: August 12, 2004 at 15:47
And what about Lovedrive, Blue Charvel ! Think that's their finest moment !

From: Blue Charvel Date: August 12, 2004 at 16:03
I guess it all depends on your frame of reference. This came out when I was 16 or 17, and before that I had only heard Blackout, so for me those two releases will always stick on my head. Not that Lovedrive is not good mind you, anything with Michael Schenker on it always works for me.

BTW that should have been "stick in my head", not "on" my head...

From: Maiden1979 Date: September 9, 2004 at 19:48
Excellent hard rock album! One of the best!

From: Joan Date: September 10, 2004 at 15:56
Venga chicos, a quitarse el sombrero. Esto es una puñetera caña, ningún otro disco de Scorpions llega al nivel de Love at first sting. Te cansarás de él de tanto escucharlo. Coming home, Bad boys running wild, I'm leaving you, as soon as the good times roll, still loving you..TODAS!. Insuperable disco de heavy melodico.

From: Propane Date: December 1, 2004 at 16:11
This one smoked! Blew right on through into the U.S. and took no prisoners. What a great album.

From: perry.k Date: January 28, 2005 at 13:43
This was the album that got me into the ROCK world for good,some 20yrs ago.SUPERB EURO HARD ROCK including an UNBELIEVABLE BALLAD that every human being likes,no matter the music style he/she is into!

From: rocknroll Date: February 26, 2005 at 20:17
I was just about 8 when I heard Still Loving You, it was 1984. I still love this album too. It means a lot to me, this was unboubtly a big success for Scorpions

From: z4roxx Date: February 26, 2005 at 20:53
I think their("big???")success depended for the songs"Rock you like an hurricane"and"Big city nights",very good commercial tunes.Totally is not a bad cd but certainly not a masterpiece of hard rock,IMO.I consider"Crazy world"release their best cd even if maybe their easiest and commercial one("winds of change"cracked my radio,10.000 times every day,sucks!!ahahaha!)but,never been impressed by this band.Just solid musicianships with some great songs,nothin'more personally.

From: Joan Date: February 27, 2005 at 16:57
INSUPERABLE. El mejor y más completo disco de este maravilloso grupo.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: April 4, 2007 at 15:54
Great Melodic Metal/Hard Rock album, y este album que mas se puede decir otra obra maestra de su tremenda carrera el estilo espectacular y Klaus tiene el tipo de voz perfecta para el estilo que practican estos gigantes "Rock You Like A Hurricane" siempre sera el tema estrella de la placa por el estilo perfecto que tiene y no la balada que a todos veo que gusta tanto 9/10.

From: juan carlos Date: June 14, 2007 at 12:07
Coincido Joan, Este es el mejor disco de los Scorps en mi opinión. Dos temazos que siempre y núnca me cansaré de escucharlos serán "Bad Boys Running Wild"(Radio Doble 9 la pasaba x aquí, Temazo!) y "Rock You Like A Hurricane" pedazos de temas. "Still Loving You" tremendo clásico infaltable en los Scorps o el fantástico "Big City Nights" de lo mejor. Lo mejor de los Scorps. 9.3/10

From: David sleaze Date: September 11, 2007 at 5:20
Best album from scrorpions, with many hits song

From: Zze Date: November 13, 2007 at 14:21
Great hardneavy. Big City NIghts and all the rest are absolute classics. sometimes a band can be BOTH commercially well sucedded AND still record a classic and this is the case here for Scorpions.

From: twisted_vikki Date: December 6, 2007 at 14:25
What a great album!!!!

From: metalhead4life Date: November 5, 2009 at 22:24
Yeah, I'll leave this one short and sweet: the whole album has great melodic catchy hard rock songs that are sure to please even the toughest of ears; a MUST OWN for any hard rock collection. Top shelf. 90/100

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: November 6, 2009 at 0:12
I always felt like the band tried to make another Blackout with this album, concentrating on the big choruses and less on speed or heaviness. That balance that existed on its predecessor is off-square here. "Rock You Like A Hurricane" and "Big City Nights" have been played to death on rock radio, and so has "Still Lovin' You," although it's still one of my favorite Scorps ballads. They were always so good at writing ballads around these weird minor chords to give the songs that ominous "if you leave me I might do something crazy" feel. All in all though, I don't listen to this one nearly as much as Blackout.

From: Lights Out Date: January 8, 2013 at 18:48
With Love At First Sting Scorpions were fully breaking to the mainstream of melodic hard rock yet they still managed to retain elements of headbanger quality heavy-metal and did not take the full plunge into being overly radio friendly. Love At First Sting is a little lighter than the previous album (Blackout) but only marginally so as there were still some heavy anthems such as "Rock You Like A Hurricane" and "Coming Home". "Bad Boys Running Wild" is likely my favorite lead-off track on any Scorps album, with a lot of attitude and great lead-breaks and solos courtesy of Matthias. "Still Loving You" is a really good power-ballad with some heavy, powerful chords. "Big City Nights" features some good dirtier riffing and a massive chorus. "I'm Leaving You" is an underrated rocker with some more nice solos from Matthias. "The Same Thrill" gets off on the right foot but eventually turns into an uptempo filler. "Crossfire" is excellent, very melodic with a cool tempo. 85/100

From: 123charpenay Date: February 18, 2013 at 12:15

MASTERPIECE

From: 123charpenay Date: December 15, 2015 at 14:11
receive it yesterday,from japan in deluxe edition ,for the 50 th anniversary of the best hard rock band of the history.there is two records and one dvd.on the first record track 10 is an excellent demo version of "comin home" without the long intro.track 14 is the demo version of "still loving you" for me no interest,track 11 and 13 are some fillers ,you can forget them and track 12 is a very short but really excellent instrumental.disc 2 is a concert at the legendary madison square garden in new york.it s a fabulous ,extraordinary concert with a perfect sound.disc 3 is a dvd with videos,tv show plus a song at the monsters of rock.and then the more interesting an interview of klaus meine,matthias jab and rudolph schencker about the making of the album and the history of all songs.they explode the market in france in 1984 with the single of "still loving you" they have selling two millions copies in my country.a record!!!and then in 1985 the result is a mini baby boom in france.

From: 123charpenay Date: December 15, 2015 at 14:13
this fabulous song have given sexual inspiration to many french peoples.it s not a joke it s official.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: March 31, 2017 at 18:35
An extremely commercial album that put the band up to the limit of popularity...my fave cuts are 4,5,6 & 9...the rest is music history.86/100
