Day 216

Golden Earring- Cut

This album isn't as good as I hoped it'd be. I guess I was hoping it would be as awesome as the tune "Twilight Zone" is. Guess they are still making a pretty penny off that one song. Well that and "Radar Love".

There are a couple of other good tunes on here though. I dug "Last Of The Mohicans" and "Lost and Found" to go along with "Twilight Zone".

A couple of things surprised me when I was listening to this record and doing my research on Golden Earring. One, I never knew they were Dutch. I always just assumed they were a British band.

And two, who knew that they have been around since 1961 and are still together? Now that really surprised me! Fifty years on and they are still doing it. Gotta give them credit for that. That's longer than the Stones!

Although I give this album a C+, I'd be interested in hearing some of their other stuff. Obviously they are doing something right to be around still. Just too bad they haven't broken big in the States after all these years.
