I heard this on the Bruce Dickinson radio show this week. I didn't like "Steal That Car", but did like "Perfect", and what I heard of "Dirty Diamonds", I kind of liked. It starts out in an odd manner. I rated this one Average, because it wasn't immediately a hit with me; yet I think it might grow on me more once I have the actual CD, where it'll sound much clearer than internet radio. I doubt this would be a candidate for a released single, though.

I now see what he means by 'dirty diamonds'. Actual diamonds that are simply stolen goods. I was expecting, or maybe hoping, that Alice would have played with a double-meaning with the phrase, and talk about how everyone is just 'cut' different, with many different 'facets', and so on. A metaphor or analogy to the phrase 'dirty diamonds', where they don't reflect back perfect light all the time. Anyway... :)

Dirty Diamonds
WoW what can i say about this tune >

First off the lyric s will make you feel you are part of a crew of thiefs that would slit someones throat to get ahold of those dirty diamonds .

Awesome up tempo tune , and the brass section is a great addition that reminds me of the 70s cooper band . This song could almost fit on the schools out album .

I cant say enough about this tune awesome stuff from the coop , if you like the coop even half as much as i do this song alone is enogh to make you want to go out a buy the album .

Awesome stuff

I am dissapointed in this track.. it was said to be like a new "halo of flies" but it has none of the excitement, tempo changes and cool arrangement that Halo had.

Wouldn´t it be for the cool horn parts this would be just another fast Alice rock track.

Halo Of Flies and this song are about Spies. He is a lyricist... if he says its like something then you should probably look at the story of the song instead of what Ryan, Damon, Chuck and others are playing.

Believe it or not, the Ad that I created on the front page that Si perfected has the saying "Diamonds are Forever." I came up with that BEFORE i even heard the song Dirty Diamonds or knew the lyrics. Waaay before! Si can vouch for me on that one. I predicted a verse of the song hehe.
So who said Diamonds are forever? Alice :D

I think the horn section in the middle of the song is great. It reminds me of Unfinished Sweet (I Spy/Bond theme section) and Man With The Golden Gun.

Excellent song.
Sounds like Bond, Batman and Mission Impossible mixed with Alice

|It sets off great ,but goes from Bond to batman IMO. and the song suffers because of it.

The Man With the Golden Gun has returned to kick our butts in the form of Dirty Diamonds!
