Local rock fans who liked what they heard when Golden Earring played here in April should have no trouble getting into this latest release from the Dutch quartet. With the exception of the title track, a new recording, all the material was culled from live shows on the band’s 1984 World Tour.
The band’s ballsy guitar/bass/drums combination has been well honed over the years, and rarely gets boring, even on lengthy, 8-1/2 minute versions of their most popular tunes “Twilight Zone” (from the LP Cut) and “Radar Love” (from Moontan).
Lead vocalist George Kooymans’ extended rap on “Long Blond Animal” does get a bit irritating, but the neat riffing on “Mission Impossible” (from last year’s N.E.W.S.) and “Enough is Enough” more than makes up for it.
All in all, a pretty accurate documentation of an exciting and spontaneous hard-rock outfit.
