Diamond Dogs – Set Fire to It All (2012)

DiamondDogs_SetFire3.5 out of 5 Stars!

In the same spirit as The Quireboys, Dogs D’Amour, or The Black Crowes, as well as Rod Stewart/Faces and Rolling Stones before them, Sweden’s Diamond Dogs played straightforward Hard Rock, loaded with boogie guitars and tinkling pianos and a touch of Southern charm.

Remaining sadly obscure after nine studio albums and several EPs, Set Fire to It All, the band’s final album prior to calling it quits, shows Diamond Dogs rockin’ it to the limit on tracks such as “On the Sunny Side Again,” “Lay Me Down on Solid Ground,” “Each and Every Ballroom,” “Burn One Down,” and “Sweethearts for Christmas.”

Granted, there’s nothing new or innovative on offer here, just a slew of old-style rock ‘n’ roll, but it’s all rather fun even after so many decades of listening to this genre of music.
