Diamond Head - Borrowed Time (Japan) (1982) Retail CD
New Wave of British Heavy Metal
This was Diamond Head's first album produced with the backing of a major record label but as they had already been around for a while producing their own records they were faced with some difficult choices. They wanted to release some of their established classics to a wider market but also wanted to record newer material that showed their musical development. Sadly the polished production of a major label did nothing for tracks like Am I Evil and Sucking My Love which lack the raw power that was present on the White Label album. Heard in isolation I'm sure this remark sounds odd but if you'vemore… heard the White Label album you'll know what I mean. Don't You Ever Leave Me is probably the best example of their developing musical ability containing powerful vocals and showcasing Brian's immense ability at playing blues guitar as well as the more mainstream rock style he had previously been associated with. I would compare his ability in this area to Ritchie Blackmore's blues excursion on the On Stage live LP. Call Me is clearly the most commercial track and for that reason is the weakest on the album in my opinion. If your new to Diamond Head it is an album you will certainly enjoy throughout and may consider it one of the best of the NWOBHM. For die hard fans like me it is more of a mixed bag.
