Perhaps not *THE* best, but definitely in the top 50%

From: Yperano Date: May 17, 2001 at 11:53
info@yperano.com This is their best album. Visit www.yperno.com

From: Amy Redding Date: May 17, 2001 at 19:12
Great stuff! "Sunday Morning" is awesome! The ballad "Holiday" is one of the best tunes the Scorps ever did. It's not their best overall album, but pretty darn close.

From: Scott Date: February 17, 2003 at 15:09
And life without Ulrich goes one, but it will never again be the same. A great album, but the start of a slow, downward spiral. Still, gotta love about every song on this disc, including the killer instrumental Coast to Coast. Not really a bad song on this one. The bad songs will come soon enough. http://www.nolifetilmetal.com/scorpions.htm

From: Metal Pete Date: January 8, 2004 at 18:54
A great cd! Definitely among their top 3! There really were not any bad songs on the next few releases after this one, either, not sure what yer talkin' bout there Willis.

From: AOR freaky Date: January 15, 2004 at 5:17
Indeed a great record, their best ! But boy : I've bought the remastered version and the person responsable for that remastering should been shot ! What a bad, crappy sound ! Distortion all the way ! Listen to the Escape or Axe Killer remasterings, that's how it should be done !

From: Rockhead Date: March 10, 2004 at 13:02
I cannot believe what I am reading!! Lovedrive is not their best! What bollocks!! This IS the most solid and listenable Cd of them all. Over 20 years later this still gets lots of airplay on my disc player.

"Coast to Coast" Baby

From: Big Papa K Date: June 29, 2004 at 18:14
The Scorpions enter a more commercial era here and continue a strong string of albums. From classic rockers such as "Lovedrive", "Loving You Sunday Morning" to the excellent power ballad "Holiday". 8/10

From: Joan Date: July 26, 2004 at 19:50
Con Lovedrive comienza la nueva etapa de scorpions, y no veas como se nota en el sonido. Excelente producción y mucha mas caña que los anteriores discos, eso sí, con una pérdida de esa "melancolía" (a veces desesperante) que caracterizaba a los primeros scorps. Para mi el punto álgido está en "can't get enough" (un auténtico trallazo). Luego está la preciosa "Always somewhere" (x cierto, que no os cuelen la versión que regrabaron para el recopilatorio "still loving you"...la original es mucho me

Claasic rockin Scorpions

From: Metal Pete Date: November 24, 2004 at 8:31
I need to pull this one out again. The Scorpions really made an important album here, and I love it. I just need to blast 'Coast to Coast' again!! "...BOWNH-WOWWWWWW, WOWWNH--NUHH-WOWWWW!" :-)

From: Scandinavia Date: November 24, 2004 at 9:00
HYahahaha...Totally agree!! Coast To Coast roxx!

From: Propane Date: December 1, 2004 at 16:01
May not be their best, but some tunes on this one are crankable, up to and including #11 on the dial.

From: Rockhead Date: December 2, 2004 at 2:53
Propane-Listen again! This is THE Scorpions album. Michael Schenker topped off the icing but this is years ahead of anything else at the time. The album still sounds awesome today. The others that followed became slowly more mainstream (still excellent mind). This was uncompromising and when compared to earlier works-this was a huge step up. 11/10

From: Scandinavia Date: December 2, 2004 at 3:50
I agree with ROCKHEAD...This is creme de la creme!! Much better than the next effort...

From: Propane Date: December 3, 2004 at 20:15
Personal opinion, sorry if I don't think like you.

From: Rycheage Date: December 3, 2004 at 21:33
This is probably the most consistent release. Some songs here and there have been better, but there is no better whole album from the Scorps. Great album.

From: swriter Date: August 10, 2005 at 21:15
another band that started metal!!!! although the early albums were great with Roth, when this album and lineup change came out, this was a shocker and an amazing record, who can name favs, all of them, LDrive, Loving, Always, Another, all great. My fav of the 70's Scorps albums

From: juan carlos Date: March 3, 2006 at 20:50
Uff.. grandes recuerdos y gran respeto por los SCorps.. un album repleto de riffs matadores, aunque la unica cancion que baja un poco es la 6 pero tampoco es malo.. "coast to coast" es todo un temazo en su version original.. un disco que es escencial en la historia del hard rock, por el año en que se realizó.. 9/10

From: Zze Date: November 1, 2007 at 14:08
This is great. I remeber listening to it first time in 1991. hard/heavy metal of the best quality, altought it doesnt come close to Blackout to me.

From: Zze Date: November 13, 2007 at 14:18
I REMEBER LISTENING TO IT SINCE 1991, THIS IS A GREAT POWER ROCK HEAVY METAL ALL THE WAY BABY !!!

From: johnk5150 Date: January 28, 2009 at 9:56
Great record. Horrible cover. This still sounds really good today.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: November 5, 2009 at 23:50
Lovedrive is like a transition album for the band, between their '70's sound (which I don't quite know how to describe) and what they would fully become betginning with Blackout. Probably my second-favorite Scorps record, with the weird "Is Anybody There" being the only track I've never really cared for.

From: Lights Out Date: January 8, 2013 at 17:42
Lovedrive sort of bridges the gap between the Uli Roth era and the more conventional heavy melodic rock of the eighties that most will associate the sound of Scorpions with, kind of an even compromise between the two eras. On one hand the song-structures are made more accessible and with more simple song-progressions and the contrasting ideas of Roth nowhere to be found. Still there is a raw, unrefined, and uncompromising quality to the overall sound more like earlier albums rather than later, which I personally see value in. Highlights here are the in-your-face "Another Piece of Meat", the abrasive "Lovedrive", and the free-spirited "Coast to Coast" (All three songs featuring leads from Micheal Schenker) New guitarist Matthias Jabs makes a good first impression also with efforts like "Loving You Sunday Morning" and "Is There Anybody There". Both ballads are quality also and deserve mention. "Can't Get Enough" is basic straightforward loudness but is a fun track. 87/100

exceptional record with schenker brothers in action.this record is a masterpiece ,a classic of the hard rock music.absoluty essential.very great souvenir for me, cause i had buying this record in cassette in 1979 in neustadt weinstrasse (germany),when i was in the french army.
