Eye II Eye is the fourteenth studio album by German rock band Scorpions, released in 1999. It is a radical departure in that Eye II Eye is much more pop-oriented than their previous work, which alienated some fans, despite the single "Mysterious" reaching number 26 on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. It is also the final Scorpions studio album to feature Ralph Rieckermann on bass guitar (unless one counts symphonic Moment Of Glory).
The song "To Be No. 1" gained some popularity.
For the first (and, thus far, only) time, Scorpions released a song recorded in their native language, namely "Du bist so schmutzig".
