The Concept and the Recording




The idea of making an acoustic album came from the band's manager, Peter Amend, who suggested that they should try something different for their fans. The band agreed and decided to record the album in a historical and atmospheric location, rather than in a studio. They chose the Convento do Beato, a former monastery that dates back to the 15th century, located in the outskirts of Lisbon. The band wanted to create a intimate and warm atmosphere for the recording, so they invited a small audience of about 200 people, mostly friends and family, to attend the show. They also invited some guest musicians to join them on stage, such as Christian Kolonovits on keyboards and orchestral arrangements, Ariana Arcu on cello, Johan Daansen on acoustic guitar, Mario Argandona on percussion, and Zucchero on vocals for a duet with Klaus Meine on "Send Me an Angel".


The Songs and the Reception




The album consists of 15 tracks, of which 11 are acoustic versions of Scorpions songs from different eras of their career. The songs include hits such as "Wind of Change", "Still Loving You", "Holiday", and "Rock You Like a Hurricane", as well as lesser-known tracks such as "When Love Kills Love", "Life Is Too Short", and "Born to Touch Your Feelings". The album also features four new songs: "The Zoo", which is an acoustic remake of their 1980 song with the same name; "Always Somewhere", which is a ballad dedicated to their fans; "Love of My Life", which is a cover of the Queen song; and "Drive", which is a cover of the Cars song. The album received positive reviews from critics and fans alike, who praised the band's ability to reinvent their songs in an acoustic setting, as well as their musical versatility and creativity. The album also achieved commercial success, reaching the top 10 in several countries, such as Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, and Japan.


The Special Edition




The album was also released in a special edition that includes a bonus DVD with the live performance and interviews with the band members. The DVD contains 18 tracks, including three songs that are not on the CD: "You and I", "Is There Anybody There?", and "Hurricane 2001". The DVD also features behind-the-scenes footage of the preparation and rehearsal for the show, as well as insights from the band members about the concept and the recording of the album. The DVD also includes subtitles in English, German, Spanish, French, Portuguese, and Japanese.


The Conclusion




Scorpions Acoustica is a unique and memorable live album that showcases the band's musical talent and diversity. The album offers a new perspective on some of their classic songs, as well as some original and surprising compositions and covers. The album is a testament to the band's longevity and relevance in the rock scene, as well as their connection with their fans around the world.
