"After waiting for this cd to be shipped, I finally got it and this is an excellent compiolation of Diamond Head songs, and not to mention the only thing of Diamond Head I own. Being a long time fan of Metallica, I heard their covers of Diamond Head and I had to hear the origionals, and some of us also know this band has been Lars Ulrich's inspiration to start Metallica. This has to be one of the best heavy metal bands I have ever heard, and now I am going to try and get all their origional albums to have the complete Diamond Head category."
Diamond Head - 'Am I Evil?: Anthology' (Castle)

"A well assembled 2-CD,28 track retrospect of Diamond Head's work. Another band from the 'New Wave Of British Heavy Metal' era that never received their just due. Not including compilations,how many 'actual' albums does Diamond Head have out?I had a tough time trying to figure it out. With heavy-hitting cuts like "Lightning To The Nations", "It's Electric", the rocking "Shoot Out The Lights", "Borrowed Time" and "I Can't Help Myself" along with the three live tunes tagged on, 'Am I Evil...' is a must-have for fans of fellow N.W.O.B.H.M. artists Samson, Motorhead, Angel Witch, Saxon and Iron Maiden. Upside is all except one of those bands are STILL in existence."

"Led Zepplin meets Metallica in this difinitive collection of Diamond Head. Although not nearly as recognized as some of their NWOBHM counterparts, Diamond Head was pivotal in the early 80's thrash metal movement. This anthology is a must have for those interested in the beggings of thrash and rock in general. Highlights include: Shoot out the Lights, To heaven from Hell, Play it Loud, I ain't got and Dead Reckoning. Soaring vox, crisp rhythm guitars and catchy melodies from Harris and Tatler. No doubt one of the best collections of work from a band that I own. Only reason it rates a 4 star is that there are some gaps in production and some songs on disc 2 arent top notch but all and all a great disc. Pick it up with Sweet Savage's "Killing Time" - Reeceman"
