Used (cover/disc): EX+/EX+.



The eleventh full-length studio album by legendary German Hard’n’Heavy band.
The band's first album in a decade and a half to not be produced by Dieter Dierks and is widely considered to be the last "classic" Scorpions album. It was the last studio album to feature the "Lovedrive" - era lineup, with bassist Francis Buchholz leaving the band in January 1992.
After the release of "Savage Amusement" in 1988, the Scorpions expressed disdain toward the album, feeling that it was too polished when compared to their other work. Their longtime producer, Dieter Dierks, was replaced with well-known Rock producer Keith Olsen, who would produce "Crazy World" and assist in making it one of the Scorpions' greatest recordings. Their music had certainly changed since "Savage Amusement", sounding a little bit heavier and less glamorous. But even with the Metal sound, the songs remain melodic and catchy. The power ballads on the album, "Wind of Change" and "Send Me an Angel", are arguably two of the band's greatest slow numbers, boasting soothing harmony and lyrics. 
"Crazy World" peaked at number 21 on Billboard 200 Chart in 1991. The song "Wind of Change" reached number four on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1991, and "Send Me an Angel" reached number 44 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In the UK, it remains the only Scorpions album to attain Silver certification (60,000 units sold) by the British Phonographic Industry, achieving this in November 1991. In the United States, it is the band's second best-selling album to 1984's "Love At First Sting", and their last one to be certified at least Gold by the RIAA.
"Crazy World" remains the Scorpions' finest '90s album and is sure to please its listeners!
