Blackout is the eighth studio album by German rock band Scorpions, released in 1982 on EMI Records Germany and Mercury Records.

Blackout ‎(Cass, Album). VPK1 6627, VPK1 6627. 1C 264-64 686. Scorpions. Blackout ‎(Cass, Album). Harvest, EMI Electrola.

Blackout was Scorpions' first highly successful album, due to its clever balance of pop/rock (the title track), power ballads ("When the Smoke Is Going Down"), and catchy heavy metal ("Dynamite," "No One Like You"). Vocalist Klaus Meine had a throat operation prior to the record's release, and surprisingly, his voice sounds more melodic and lively than ever. The rest of the band sounds great as well, and the album is highlighted by the fast-paced performances of guitarists Rudolf Schenker and Matthias Jabs

Blackout (Scorpions album). Blackout is the eighth studio album by the German rock band Scorpions, released in 1982 on EMI Germany Records and Mercury Records. After losing his voice during the writing of the album, lead vocalist Klaus Meine had to undergo surgery on his vocal cords and it was uncertain whether he would be able to record it. Demos of the material were recorded with Don Dokken as vocalist; however none of those recordings are featured on the album. Rudolf Schenker could not choose between his guitar solos on "China White", so the US and European releases differed in this small detail.

Blackout is probably Scorpions’ best album of the 1980s. Taken by Force is probably their best album of the 1970s. This album is a hybrid of traditional 1980s metal along with 1980s pop metal. Blackout is essentially nothing but a mind blowing party album that avoids any sort of nonsensical garbage that makes music generic. Covering lyrics on parties, the life of touring, and odes to the fans, this record is a giant cluster of energetic heavy metal with such an excited vibe, even more so than the slightly more successful Love At First Sting that would come two years later. As great as the next one was, this record has ever so slightly better song construction and intensity, if you ask me.
