Taken By Force by Scorpions. I put this on the other day and it was totally fucking great from start to finish.

It also features my favourite ever brutally cynical lyric, in the chorus of the magnificent lead track, Steamrock Fever, at the end of the chorus, when Klaus sings, for absolutely no reason whatsoever: "...in LA!"

Makes the Leps' Hello America sound positively fucking delicate.

I only wish Uli-Jon Roth had played that cool little lead trill he plays over the chorus in the studio version, in the subsequent live Tokyo Tapes.

Sorry, it's all gone a bit 'early Scorps' in this house this week.
