Without trying to be a genre nazi. How does this album not have the heavy metal tag while for example Love at first Sting has it? Especially considering it is not only one of their heaviest albums but it has two of the heaviest and most "metal sounding" songs of the decade with "The Sails of Charon" and "He's a Woman, She's a Man". The same goes for most of the Uli Jon Roth albums. If someone mentions Scorpions and heavy metal, most people I know, myself included think mainly of the albums from In Trance to Blackout.
