Blackout is the eighth studio album by German rock band Scorpions, originally released in March 1982 via Harvest Records in Europe and Mercury Records in the US.

Scorpions are a German rock band formed in 1965 in Hanover by Rudolf Schenker. Since the band's inception, its musical style has ranged from hard rock to heavy metal. The lineup from 1978–92 was the most successful incarnation of the group, and included Klaus Meine (vocals), Schenker (rhythm guitar), Matthias Jabs (lead guitar), Francis Buchholz (bass guitar), and Herman Rarebell (drums). The band's only constant member has been Schenker, although Meine has been the lead singer for all of the band's studio albums, and Jabs has been a consistent member since 1979.

 

The album was produced by Dieter Dierks and recorded at studios in both Germany and France.

AllMusic’s Barry Weber rates the album 4.5 stars out of 5 and sums up the album as follows “…Blackout was the Scorpions' first majorly successful album, due to its clever balance of pop/rock (the title track “Blackout”), 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 has been called the Scorpions' best record ever, and that statement is not unjust. “No One Like You" gave the band its first chart hit.”

Five singles were released from the album, with the first single No One Like You reaching #65 on the US and #64 on the UK and #49 on the Canadian Singles charts. The second single Can’t Live Without You reached #63 on the UK Singles charts.

The album became their most successful album release to date, reaching #10 in the home country Albums charts, #10 on the US Billboard 200, #11 on the UK, #11 on the Canadian and #1 on the French Albums charts.

Check out the singles from the album:  No One Like YouCan’t Live Without YouNow!You Give Me All I Need and When The Smoke Is Going Down.
