~~ Together represents an important step forward for Golden Earring. Unlike the group's previous albums, the songs on this album don't fall into strict rock, psych or progressive categories. Instead, the group blurs these strict lines and weaves elements of each genre into a distinctive style that gives the songs their unique flavor. For instance, "Brother Wind" has the complex arrangement and length of a prog rock epic, but it moves forward with the energy and powerful riffing of a hard rock song. The group also makes a concerted effort to give each song a tight arrangement and usually more than one catchy hook. The result is the band's first truly consistent album. Driving rockers abound on Together: "Avalanche of Love" is driven by a procession of gutsy riffs that live up to the song's title, and "Buddy Joe" is a surging, dramatic adventure tale built on a singalong chorus and an insidiously catchy Indian-style guitar riff (this rousing tune has remained a popular part of the band's live set list). "Jangalene" is another highlight, a cleverly arranged tune that starts out as an acoustic blues but flowers into a full-throttle rocker midway through. The Led Zeppelin influence was never more apparent than here, especially on the malevolent “From Heaven From Hell,” on which singer Barry Hay delivers a devastating Robert Plant emulation.

Together remains an impressive album and clearly shows off the chops and songwriting skills! Recommended !!
