1982. Blackout

is the eighth album by band Scorpions.

After losing his voice during the writing of the album, lead vocalist Klaus Meine had to undergo surgery on his vocal cords and it was uncertain whether he would be able to record it. Demos of the material were recorded with Don Dokken as vocalist; however none of those recordings are featured on the album.

Rudolf Schenker could not choose between his guitar solos on “China White”, so the US and European releases differed in this small detail.

really great album, The vocals are excellent and distinctive as always, The riffs/solo are, again, good and catchy.  this key piece of metal history and appreciate the greatness that these near God’s once had.
