Pure Instinct Album Tracklist

Pure Instinct - Scorpions | Reviewer: Paul | 6/18/2007

When this CD first came out in the mid-90s, I was expecting more of the same mesmerizing rythmic heavy metal mixed with wolf-howling ballads that were the Scorpions trademark to that time. I was struck a little sideways by this album, though. However, over time this has become my all-time favorite of all the Scorpions albums. Its deeply introspective lyrics and hauntingly personal rythmic melodies are a superb blend of primeval essence, deep intuition, and craftily harmonic musical style. Only three or four of the songs would I consider ordinary, the rest are hallmarks in my book. "Soul Behind the Face" still sends chills down my spine. "Time Will Call Your Name" can resurrect me spiritually every time I hear it. "Are You the One?" is reserved for my soul mate, if I ever find her. "Where the River Flows" is an inner journey through a soul and a life. "Does Anyone Know" expertly paints the longing everyone has had at one time or another for true love. All this is classic. If I could only keep one album out of all I have ever owned, this one would be it.
