Everyone here will surely agree with my rankings. I do not like any full Scorps album, but some of their tunes have a place in my heart and on my hair metal compilations. :-)

1) Love at First Sting ("Bad Boys Running Wild", "Rock You Like a Hurricane", "I'm Leaving You", "Big City Nights")
2) Savage Amusement ("Don't Stop At The Top", "Rhythm of Love", "We Let It Rock...You Let It Roll", "Love On The Run")
3) Blackout ("No One Like You", "Blackout", "Dynamite")

Solid proto-metal:

4) Taken by Force ("Steamrock Fever", "The Riot of Your Time", "The Sails of Charon")
5) Lovedrive ("Can't Get Enough", "Lovedrive")

"It's not exactly a horrible album, but it's no better than something by, I dunno, Pagan's Mind or some other shirt-tucking nerdprog band." - Matt Johnsen of Pharaoh
