Oookay.. Finally I have a time to put my review here
But 1st of all thank u all for your reviews..just a couple of words about the difference of opinions.. IMO it's normal that not everyone liked the album..and I want to thank Diego for his honest, tactful and constructive feedback.
Yes the negative opinion is also an opinion...as long as it's expressed in a proper way, right?
And, Diego, I still don't think that you're finished as a fan, just coz you didn't like this album - I bet u still love their "old" stuff, don't u?
So..as for my review...it definitely won't be objective, coz..I was a part of that show, so listening and watching it takes me back to that magic night again and again...and of course it's mostly my heart and soul speaking when I'm talking about this album - coz yep.. I love it with all my heart and soul! And even before its official release I started to listed to some stuff from it...and now that I finally received my box set, I'm watching and listening to it "officially"
.. And I cant get enought!!!
Ok, but to be honest, not absolutely all the songs' arrangements are in "my style" - indeed some of them seem a bit weird to me..and yep originals of some songs sound much better to me ( like, for ex, SITT, Can't live without u or Hit between the eyes) - but still they are not bad at all!
And, haha - that "game over theme" in Speedy's coming
- that was the 1st thing that my husband told me when he heard it at the 1st time
- so now that I read the same impressions here, all I can say is it's probably the guys' nostalgia for those games
But still, I simply adore most of the new arrangements of the "old" songs!!! I totally fell in love with the sounding of Blackout, No one like u, Passion Rules the Game, and,of course all the ballads...still I always have tears on my eyes during Born to touch your feelings and in the end of "smoke..." - whan Klaus says "and now u, c'mon..." ahh I always start crying, esp when I watch this..well yes, my diagnosis is clear
As for the guests - just wow for Cathe !!!! I loved her! She is so positive, and had such a good voice! And it suites In Trance so much... So.. Loved this duet, loved how it sounded, loved its spirit
As well as I loved RYLAH with Johannes - also well performed
But..okay.. As for that Mortan from A-ha...here unfortunately I can't say I loved it, just coz I don't like Mortan's voice.. Not my type..but ok, it was guys' choice, so I'm just saying I didn't like it...just not for me....
And.. Of course the new songs, I already told about them, but again.. Of course I love each of them, coz they all have their own spirit "R'n'R band"
- such a classic r'n'r song, very well adapted to acoustic show Dancing with the moonlight
- the same - I loved the way it sounded Matthias' "Delicate dance"
is really filled with so much soul - very romantic and gentle composition Rudy's "Love is the answer".
..yes..I also loved it coz its spirit - it's not about vocals here, but about the message that Rudy sends us with this song...I loved it
And..yes..i think it was said more that enough about "Klaus' Follow your heart"
...this song became the soundtrack of all my autumn scorps adventures, and followed me everywhere - just coz, again, Klaus put all his soul into this song.. And it's so simple and so great!!!! The melody, the lyrics...it's in my heart forever now...
Hehe, sometimes I even regret that this song is too short
- Klaus ,dear, why didn't u make it a bit longer. Eh?
So..yes... I loved this album, and I can't get enough of watching and listening to it
But..still I prefer watching it, coz thus I can feel all the atmosphere more...I can see the familiar faces, the emotions of the crowd and of the guys...and it's simply amazing!!
Thus, I would like to thank The Scorpions for this great, amazing project!!!! For that HUGE job they made! For that amazing show in Athens, the part of which I was lucky to be
( yes..I even found myself on a pic in a booklet, haha
So.. Many thanks again, and hope you really will tour with this project all over the world, including my country! I will be happy to see it again and again!!!
PS all I said above is just MY HUMBLE SUBJECTIVE OPINION
