Picture sleeve; opens right; jewel case; 4 pages booklet; no picture red CD. These were the words of Rudolf in an interview, putting as positive a spin as he possibly could upon Eye II Eye, issued March 9th, , a perplexing and perplexed record that is without a doubt the most reviled album in the Scorpions catalogue. In the album artwork the band seemed less like one. Only Matthias, Rudolf and Klaus were pictured on the artsy front cover, while Ralph Rieckermann and new drummer James Kottak anchored, not the back cover, but the back on the CD booklet.
This time we met a producer, Peter Wolf. We talked togheter and he offered us to come to his studio in Austria and take a look at it. First of all we weren't excited because Austria isn't out favourite country, to make music in anyway. But his idea was, let's make music for ten days and see what comes out. We went there and the studio, which is called Little America, it is a great studio whit everything you need". So we played for ten days with him and three songs came out.
And it became clear that he was a great man and a great person to work with. And he came and listened to our songs, our demos, and said, 'Look guys, that's great, but it's time to start writing again'. He wanted to have different teams and work with Klaus and Ralph etc. He wanted to change the format which we always worked in to try to get new ideas". Listen to the record, and one is shocked how ruthlessly the band's big celebreted sledges of tandem rhythm guitars has been into exile.
We wanted to do it different than in the '80s where guitar was all over the place, give teh song more air, give it a different vibe. We tried different equipment, acoustic guitars, different kinds for electric guitars, different micophones, AKG microphnes.
We are always looking for a way to give the songs a special kind of thing. It was important to us for each song to be different from each other. I think if you listen to the album, you'll see that every song has a different kind of vibe". I think personally, because either you write a song a certain way, or you can take a song that is like a rock song, written as a rock song, and try to make it modern and funky.
Just because you put a few loops and create some electronic sounds underneath it, it doesn't really work. It has to be written that way. And so 'Mysterious', my song, I wrote is that way, I wrote it with loops, I wrote it with a funky feel to it.
It was written like that. That's why it works. I mean, the radio took it well. It was played in nightclubs; people were actually dancing to it.
I remember before, I never heard Scorpions in nightclubs. I was never dancing to Scorpions songs and that was always bothering me. But never Scorpions, and that alwaysbothered me. And I wanted to challenge the guys, 'Listen guys, we need something that has a groove to it, the people can dance to it, and that the DJs would put on in a nightclub'". To every ol' Scorpions' fan's horror, the second track on the album, "To Be No.
In the vein of "Mysterious", this one pushes even more buttons, including a ludicrous little keyboard blurp. Next up was a crap ballad called "Obsession" but then a skilled and mature ballad called "10 Light Years Away", good because it's outside the zone and not particularly saccharine, recalling the storehouse of impressive lighter experiments all over Pure Instinct.
Brave and yet mature of architecture is "Mind Like A Tree", a Zeppelin-esque stomper with interesting light and shade, killer production through and through by this Peter Wolf, in Austria, who also gets five writing credits on the record, including within this Queen-touched track of whack.
More sophisticated, I mean, he played with Frank Zappa and lots of jazz players, lots of orcjestral stuff. He has done pretty much every style of music there as on the planet". Next up is the album's anonymous, innocuous title of muzak, followed by housewifely pop ballad "What U Give U Get Back" and then "Skywriter", a slightly darker yet still poppy ballad, ambitious arrangement but not much else.
Unspoken agreement". And yes, the lyrics is primarily in German, but I'd venture to say that any given Angelo Scorpions fan would rather get their foreign language fix from good ol' Ramnstein than a track from Eye II Eye. The sum total was a record that was almost begging to be marketed differently, if it was to have any chance at all. It was in the Top Ten and went 2. What you need is a song that is played five tmes a day, and then you will have success.
This album is good; the fans took it OK but for the right audience, it's OK. We have a new single coming out sooner or later, either 'Eye to Eye' or 'A Moment In A million Years', not the piano version on teh album, but a different one. Because Europe is very ballad-oriented, and as you know, we are a rock band, and that always is our problem. We operate on two continents, and America is moe ballad-oriented.
So now we have to find the right way to move. But marketing, that's a good question. I think that is now up to the people in Canada and America".
