"Yep, I agree with everybody here, this is a great album! From beginning to end, a great slice of late 70's rock. A lot of great guitar work that never grows stale or boring, and every song is strong and complimentary to the other which is this album's strength. I think it's one of their best! Even if you're barely familiar with them, you wouldn't hurt yourself to start here."

"This album simply rocks! The songs are great, the playing is great, and it should have been a bigger hit than it was. I saw them on the tour for this album and the songs were even better live! If you like Golden Earring, buy this one--you won't be disappointed!"
Earrings Most Underrated Album

"I have heard that the band was not happy with this album. I sure don't know why! I'm one of their biggest fans and I love it. The last few months it's the one I've listened to the most. it has a harder edge to it, yet also some real catchy material. Leather is a slow moving rocker with great lyrics, cell 29 is haunting, Movin Down The line is an upbeat rocker. The best song is the title track Grab it For A Second. Great music and lyrics. Great album"
Worth a listen for GE fans

"Like most of the late 70s Golden Earring albums, Grab It For A Second is like this: about half the songs are really good and the other half are very average. Barry Hay is still the hopeless romantic, young-boy-just-tryin'-to-get-some-love that he always was. For anyone interested in GE, this is a must have. It is good to see it back in print again in the US. Btw, these late 70s albums are way better than anything the GE has put out in the 80s or 90s."
