Sting in the Tail
46 years and 17 albums later, the Scorpions have called it quits. Their old hits will be re-recorded for a compilation and there’s a video in the offing but Sting in the Tail is their farewell studio album. Most will know them for their Eighties classics but 2007’s Humanity showed that the band still had a lot to offer. Sting delivers too, harking back to the anthems that made them famous so long ago but with a modern twist.Â Sometimes they rock out whilst other times you’d wish that you were in in an arena holding a burning candle with tens of thousands of others doing the same. Ironically, the final track is named ‘The Best Is Yet To Come’. As one of the best they’ve done, it makes for a helluva poignant ending. Favourite songs – ‘Spirit Of Rock’, ‘The Good Die Young’ and, of course, ‘The Best Is Yet To Come’.
