Animal Magnetism is the seventh studio album by German rock band Scorpions, originally released in March 1980 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 Canada.

The album contains a couple of classic songs, The Zoo and Make It Real and is regarded by some as not as strong as their 1979 album Lovedrive. The band had been on tour extensively and recorded this album quickly before going out on the road again. Perhaps the shorter time to write and record the album impacted the overall consistency of the album. Nevertheless, the album reached #12 on the German Albums charts and reached #52 on the US Billboard 200 and #23 on the UK Albums charts.

The album cover artwork was designed by Storm Thorgerson of the design firm Hipgnosis and, as with earlier Scorpions album sleeves, courted controversy, although did not suffer a replacement in the key US market (unlike Love At First Sting).

The members of Scorpions that recorded this album were:

  • Klaus Meine – lead vocals
  • Matthias Jabs – lead guitar, backing vocals
  • Rudolf Schenker – rhythm guitar, backing vocals
  • Francis Buchholz – bass, backing vocals
  • Herman Rarebell – drums, backing vocals

Four singles were released to promote the album:  Lady Starlight ; Make It Real / Hold Me Tight ; The Zoo and Hey You. Checkout a little documentary about the making of the album:  Scorpions Documentary.
