Home of the Long Blond Animal!
Jessie | USA | 10/11/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You could argue that this is their best 80's album. It includes their awesome classic round 'n round rocker, "Long Blond Animal" (that usually rocks even more live with the audience singing along) and the terrific "Will And Mercy". "My Town", "Prisoner Of The Night" and "Going Crazy Again" are also good tracks. "Prisoner Of The Night" has a cool blusey guitar solo and "Cut 'Em Down To Size" is pretty good too, with some sax at the end. The worst would probably be "I Don't Wanna Be Nobody Else", which I find boring."

"This is probably the best Golden Earring album of the 80's, as the last reviewer points out. But it is is likely to be a bit of a shock for those expecting more songs like Radar Love and Twilight Zone.

For this is from the period when Golden Earring started to tighten up, and to focus more on their great talent for tuneful, short, and witty pop music. Not that it doesn't rock - they still put most of the heavy metal poseurs in the shade in terms of energy and excitement. But on this (and on No Promises No Debts, NEWS and The Hole) they stopped writing semi-prog epics, and started penning some pretty gorgeous rock and roll pop songs. Not that anyone in America or England bought them, mind you, but that is their loss.

Think of the better Tom Petty or Kiss or AC-DC songs for comparison. Golden Earring may not be very hip, but twenty years on, this actually sounds better to me than The Clash or the Police any of the other tedious icons that dominate the current media representation of pop music at the time. This is a tight, fun album, not politically correct, but all the better for it.

And one day someone in the media will actually realise that Golden Earring's major peers for comparison should be the Rolling Stones. Both have been going for forty years or more, both are rooted in RnB, and both are peerless innovators in the field of rock and roll pop music. Give them a listen."
Another rock solid work

"I probably have become very familiar to all those who read about Golden Earring. I'll just say here that this is a solid album. If you are a fan of this great band then get this cd. This is the Euro version of the U.S release "Long Blond Animal" Thanks to Amazon for making these available, though there are still a few to go."
