      I am not a big fan and I have only listened to I believe 8 albums of theirs. So I am sure I will be in the minority with my favorites.

      1) Blackout
      2) Love At First Sting
      3) Lovedrive
      4) World Wide Live
      5) Animal Magnetism

                5. Love at First Sting

                Taken by Force is their best of the 70's and Blackout the best from the 80's.
                I discovered Scorpions in between Blackout and LAFS being released so I do have a soft spot for LAFS and Rock You Like A Huricane was one of the very first rock songs I learnt on guitar.

                  1. In Trance (vinyl) those guitars oh my... those guitars. The voice mix. The melodies. The drum patterns. The album cover with the hot chic straddling the axe. Flawless!

                  I can't finish my list. I'm on my way to dust off my turntable.

                      I can understand that. I need to listen to some of the earlier stuff. Besides the 5 I listed, I think I have only listened to: Savage Amusement, Face The Heat, Pure Instinct.

                            I'm a casual listener. I enjoyed their early 80's Heavy Metal glam music but I think the 70's material is much better. They were playing Hard Rock in the midst of the disco era cesspool when people wanted John Travolta, the BG's, etc...

                            Scorpions did their own thing and played their true music, stuff they enjoyed without giving a shit what anyone said. Then they sold out and jumped in the Heavy Metal bandwagon.

                            It was still good but they lost their identity. Evolution maybe.

                            For those reasons I believe 70's Scorpions is superior than 80's Scorpions.
