I am very picky about my music, and Golden Earring is one of my "top five" bands. My only explanations of why they were never huge in the US, would be lack of exposure, and that they are not a top 40 "trendy" band. I really enjoy bands that can have multiple leads being played simultaniously, much like the self titled album by Blind Faith, or The Who's Quadraphenia album. Golden Earring has this talent, and they are great to listen to. I Personally do not think that they need a greatest hits album, as two of their original albums could be considered greatest hits albums.....those being "Moontan", and "Switch". If you like bands like Pink Floyd, Blind Faith, Cream, The Who, Jethro Tull, and Emerson Lake and Palmer, then you NEED some Golden Earring in your collection. You can find Moontan at a good record store on CD. I recently acquired Switch on CD, I had to have it imported from Russia. Their music is thought provoking and inventive, some of it is ingenious in its' simplistic, clean style. Radar Love is the worst song on the Moontan album, and it is the only song that most Americans are familiar with. To sum this review up, I would Recommend this album to anyone, but if you are like me, you would appreciate the original albums in addition to this one. Want to listen to something new, a fresh hard driving sound that puts you in that fully content listening zone? Check out Golden Earring.

This is probably one of the best "greatest hits" CD's that I own.
Growing up I of course remember hearing "Radar Love" and "Twilight Zone" on the radio and grew to find that they have much more than that. I am incredibly surprised that Golden Earring weren't more popular here in the U.S.A. When I first picked this up on cassette back in the day I wore out 2 copies of it. I eventually got a CD copy of it and still can't stop listening to it. Just by listening to this so many times has persuaded me to buy all of their other music. Although this collection leaves off material from a few albums it doesn't really matter. They have enough material to make another collection of the songs they left off this one. I am hooked on several songs from this CD. Some of them being "Vanilla Queen", "Candy's Going Bad", "Ce Soir", "Clear Night Moonlight", "Mad Love's Coming" and "Leather". I am disappointed that their albums "Switch" and "Grab It For A Second" are not yet available on a CD. I still own both of those on vinyl. But all their other albums are available on CD. Some other very good albums by Golden Earring are "To The Hilt", "Cut", "No Promises No Debts" and "Prisoner Of The Night". Three of those four albums have songs that were not included on this collection. If you liked "Radar Love" and "Twilight Zone" you gotta check out the "continuation".

The Continuing Story of Radar Love is a 12-song hits collection from rock band Golden Earring, containing both the 70s rock staple "Radar Love" and the full eight-minute version of "Twilight Zone." These two songs are the most notable on this compilation and both cracked the Top 20, with "Radar Love" hitting number 13 in 1974 and "Twilight Zone" peaking at number ten nine years later. The other ten songs on the album consist of long, heavy guitar-filled runs that surround obscure lyrics, the best of which are "The Vanilla Queen" and "Mad Love's Comin."

TWILIGHT ZONEMany American music fans had forgotten about Golden Earring after "Radar Love," but the Dutch group hung around and remained popular around the world as it performed its mix of hard rock with other sounds and subsequently created many albums worth noting. Their consistent hard work paid off when the group released the major hit "Twilight Zone," a rocker that paired edgy lyrics to a hard-hitting, slick rock sound, not unlike the much newer song "Kryptonite" by Three Doors Down. I guess you could say these guys had thirty minutes of fame, having had two big hits nine years apart. "Twilight Zone" seems to be a story about paranoia, desperation and betrayal. It paints a lonely portrait of "a double-crossed agent, all alone" who is trying to carry out a mission only to find himself betrayed at every turn: "Help, I'm stepping into the twilight zone/This is a madhouse/Feels like being cloned/My beacon's been moved under moon and star/Where am I to go now that I've gone too far?" The music replicates the angry tone of the lyrics by mixing certain melodies that build from a meditative mood to an angry boil with a swirling chorus that consistently shifts direction conveying the frenzied confusion of the agent.

An absolute fanatastic band, with a great sound. acoustic as well as electric. Songs as "she flies on strange wings" and "the devil made me do it" are GREAT. Golden earring is more much more than just "radar love" and "twilight zone"!!

Why the Golden Earring never had the big Breakthru in the rest of the world is a shame. They should have been one of the biggest bands in the world cause music doesn't get much better than this. They scored their first no 1 hit in Holland in 1965 and in 1999 they are still at the top with their new material. Their unplugged albums Naked truth and naked too are so good every music lover in the world should have them, and this album here is also one of the best.Though they had some hits all over the world they still haven't achieved to stay at the top, and don't ask me why cause I don't understand at all. In Holland they are the biggest band for almost 35 years already and I think they will at least be for the coming 10 years so the rest of the World: buy their stuff you won't be dissapointed. Maybe their big breakthru has yet to come, they deserve it.
