In 1982, Blackout gave the Scorpions a number ten placing on the album charts, eventually gaining platinum status. This was a far better result than 1979's Lovedrive release, which peaked at number 55. Blackout rose to semi-prominence thanks to the hard-rocking strength of "No One Like You." Although the song only made it as far as number 65 on the charts, it mustered up a simple but heavy sound that could please more than one audience. This tapered heavy metal style began in 1979, when Mathias Jabs replaced Michael Schenker as the group's premier guitarist. With Schenker's fondness for playing a heavier style now gone, the Scorpions had a solid lineup that was willing to focus on more of a streamlined rock sound that would appeal to a wider commercial base rather than just a heavy metal one. Written by Rudolf Schenker and Klaus Meine, "No One Like You"'s energy is built around Meine's explosive vocals, full-bodied and controllably charged throughout the chorus but wonderfully subtle during the rest of the tune. The guitar riffs are simple and appealing, and although they're a little cliché sounding, they brandish the perfect amount of hard rock flair without going overboard. "No One Like You" sports a light to hard transition, with only one guitar and some solid drum hits accompanying Meine during the chorus. The riffs are short and dense, creating an effectual rock mien. Actually, it was "No One Like You" that kicked off the Scorpions' commercial success, and because of the song's amicable rock feel, the band managed to hold on to the fans that have been with them all the while. The Scorpions used the same rock recipe for their next release, the double-platinum Love at First Sting album, which went all the way to number six and gave them their first Top 40 hit with "Rock You Like a Hurricane."
