Album: Savage Amusement

Savage Amusement is a studio album by the German heavy metal band Scorpions, released in 1988. It peaked at #5 in the USA where it became platinum that June. The album was the follow up to the tremendously 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 with some different genres, but nothing too drastic, going to a more radio friendly style. There are still some straight hard rock songs, like "Don't Stop At The Top" and "Media Overkill", but there are some songs that show a more experimental side, like the progressive rock influenced "Walking On The Edge". The song "Passion Rules The Game" also shows some influence from dance music.
