Scooter wouldn't be Scooter if they went for understatement when choosing a name for their 19th studio album. Scooter Forever as a title leaves plenty of room for interpretation in this, the 25th year of their existence, but Scooter will Forever be united with their fans and this album is in recognition of a quarter century (a lifetime in music) of loyalty to their credo of hedonism, partymania and a fierce unwillingness to compromise. Flying in the face of convention, Scooter have surprised all the doubters who never expected the band to become such an immovable icon of musical history. Their systemic success is here to stay. Scooter Forever is an absolute powerhouse of an album, bursting with pumping rhythms and melodic ideas.
Scooter’s success is due in no small measure to Michael Simon and Phil Speiser, who have ensured continuity in the fifth chapter - whilst the MC skills of front man and mastermind H.P. Baxxter are as sharp as ever: rarely have his raps sounded tighter. Add in ever- expanding reserves of musical knowledge and a desire to engage with contemporary trends and the Scooter sound is revealed to rest on a complex foundation of bass, breaks and micro-improvisation.
On Scooter Forever, H.P. Baxxter shouts out a new Scooter anthem proclaiming “In Rave We Trust” - a perfect slice of pop with a simply brilliant, brilliantly simple melody... how come nobody thought of this one before?! Then there's “Kill The Cat” a tune which is archetypal Scooter to its very last microparticle, elevating Scooter's trademark sound to new sonic heights. All of the other songs on the album, such as “Wild & Wicked”, complete with flashes of hyper-tuned guitar, positively reverberate with hit potential.
