Beginning with the relentless "Soul Saviour", Double Diamond entices the listener with a succession of riffs, hooks and moments of sheer melodic abandon. Once heard, the snappy, succinct chorus of "Ruined" simply refuses to shift from one's head. "Bright Lights" is something of a mini-epic, clocking in at under four minutes yet somehow making the transition from a driving verse/chorus arrangement to an anthemic mid-section where both Steer and drummer Ludwig Witt push themselves to their absolute limits. "For Crying Out Loud" is perhaps the most immediate track on the album; its unstoppable thrust underpinned by the sonorous bass of Greyum May. Firebird then display a more subtle side on "Farewell", exploiting their dynamic range and settling, temporarily, into a slightly gentler pace."A Wing And A Prayer" sees the band return to full pelt. As so-called "road songs" go, this could rank as the most honest, least glamorous to date, backed up by one of the greatest Firebird riffs ever. "Pound Of Flesh" highlights just how far the group's production values have come, its haunting refrain providing a superb contrast to the stop-start nature of the opening verses. A slightly more exotic approach can be heard on "Arabesque". This dark, brooding tune revels in a middle-eastern mode that oozes mystique.Proceedings take an upbeat turn with "Lose Your Delusions", a tale of egotism gone sour married to an irresistible stomp. And "Pantomime" closes Double Diamond, gradually building from a low-key acoustic opening to the spirited electric release of a finale that caps the album beautifully.
