David Lee Roth (Diamond Dave) 2003




How to describe this album, simply titled Diamond Dave? Although I enjoy it for the most part, Diamond Dave (the album that is) was absolutely the worst thing he could have done. Especially coming off the musically-reviving DLR Band, which didn't show by way of hit songs, money in the bank, etc.... But musically it was by far the best since Eat Em And Smile.

So, why go the way of doing an entire album of covers with a lounge lizard spin on it? Just picture Dave working on Freemont Street in Vegas in a Smokey filled room crooning songs and this is what you get. My guess is that he was just to lazy to take the time to write anything new. Stylistically, the music is all over the place. But all the songs are sung in the same manner from song to song. It's a mood I guess he was trying to emulate. Having said that, I actually like this a tad more than that of Skyscraper, even though they both rate the same.

Fave Songs: You Got the Blues, Not Me, Tomorrow Never Knows and Let It All Hang Out. Horrible album cover. Atrocious.
