Savage Amusement is the tenth studio album by the German #heavy #metal band Scorpions, released on April, 16, 1988. It peaked at No. 5 in the USA, where it became platinum on June 20, 1988. It was also the last Scorpions record to be produced by Dieter Dierks.
The album was the follow-up to the successful Love at First Sting and had some musical differences when compared to its predecessor. The overall feel of the album shows that Scorpions wanted to experiment a little with some different genres, going to a more radio friendly style and incorporating more synthesized sounds. While there are still some straight hard rock songs, like “Don’t Stop at the Top” and “We Let It Rock… You Let It Roll”, there are also dance rock songs such as “Passion Rules the Game”.
