This is just a fantastic rock album. Hardly a moment of it is sub-par. It has no pretensions to be anything other than a thumping good listen, although that is not to say that it is all guitar riffs. Both tracks 2 and 3 feature some good synth arrangements from bassist Rinus Gerritsen (apologies if I have misspelt the name, which is missing from my CD). The drumming of Cesar Zjuiderwick (apols again for the spelling) is excellently recorded.
When this first came out, the British pop papers wrote of a Dutch invasion. Focus had just released the currently deleted Focus III, and Hocus Pocus was doing well as a single. In terms of musicianship, Focus were probably the stronger, but Earring completely outrocked them.
Twenty-seven years on, I personally don't feel this album has dated. Radar Love will always be a classic. But as a driving song, it is actually bettered by the last track, Are You Receiving Me.
The follow-up album, Switch, was a bitter disappointment. Indeed I have never found an Earring album that comes close to this one, which remains in my all-time top ten.

One of the best rock albums of the '70s; hence of all time. I saw them on tour when this was released and they were a genuinely exciting live band. Read morePublished on Oct. 31 2013 by Peter Jackson
