"as far as i'm concerned,this was the beginning of the majesty of golden earring,and not a bad start at that!!.best songs are "everyday's torture","one huge road" and "landing".they are uriah heep-ish and i can see where the heep comparisons started at,on this album only in my opinion.they would branch out by next album (my personal favorite)called "golden earring" and subsequent albums would get better and better until a grinding halt on "no promises,no debts"(one of the worst albums i've ever heard)."

"So I started out with Golden Earring's "The Devil Made Me Do It", an extensive collection of some of their greatest hits. If you only listen to that CD or just know Radar Love or Twilight Zone, then you would never know that this amazing music exists. Its experimental to say the least. The instrumentals are by far the highlight of this CD. There is extensive soloing on their cover of the Byrd's "Eight Miles High". The best songs on the CD are Eight Miles High, Everyday's Torture, and Song of the Devil Serpant. If you want to hear some of the best instrumental stuff out there, then I recommomend this CD."

"I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with this album. Besides the almost twenty minute long cover of The Byrd's Eight Miles High, "Landing" and "One Huge Road are great songs with some nice rocking out on the guitar, and "My Everyday's Torture" is slower and moody, but still good. "Song Of A Devil's Servant" is the low point of the album. This album has a more basic "American" feel to it. Too bad there's only a few songs, since "Eight Miles High" took up so much space."
First Golden Earring as we know them.

"After years of pop and Dutch bubblegum,GE tried something
else which would be the beginning of the Moontan era(which
would arrive 4 years(ca. 3 records later)).This is a humble beginning and for completists only.The Byrds*Eight miles
High* 19 min.long is pretty good."
