How did the Scorpions sound after Uli Jon Roth left the band in 1978? This 1979 release by the German heavy rockers shows one of the different styles they took during their career and gave a glimpse of how their sound would be later on in the 80's. To some fans, this album had a commercial sound specifically more mainstream than previous releases that featured Uli on lead guitars (Virgin Killer, Taken By Force etc...) which is true, but for many people it was a change for the better because this album featured Rudolph's brother, Michael on lead guitars on 3 out of the 8 tracks (Another Piece Of Meat, Coast To Coast and Lovedrive). On the other 5 tracks Mattias Jabs, one of my all time favorite guitarists, played as the second guitarist alongside Rudolph and handled most of the lead guitar work.
