5 stars This was Golden Earring's most distinctive album which also presents the main elements that made music extraordinary in the 70's. The songs are basically hard rock with prog touches, some with long instrumental passages which seem to be jams where the musical ideas are hugely developed between jazz and psychedelia, sometimes reminiscent of the space rock played by Hawkwind. The sax and keyboard arrangements on the pieces are superb. The well- known "Radar Love" is the most fantastic, with an irresistable jazz-like swing and groove from the drums and bass. Another favourite is "Are You Receiving Me?" The two tracks (on the European version) "Suzy Lunacy" and 'Vince Taylor" are both a bit of thumping rock 'n' roll fun that give variety to the album. It's surpring how much this band's best output has been ignored by reviewers when considering great music from that decade. Moontan is sometimes known as the ultimate driving album. It's fresh, vivid sound never tires, each new listening will bring new surprises. A must have for all intelligent rock lovers.
