Diamond Rio is one heck of a good country band: perfect picking, high-energy presentation, and harmonies tight like a dream. Unbelievable is another solid outing filled, start to finish, with hit after likely hit, from the on-fire title track to the earnest anthem "(I Will) Start All Over Again." Granted, as is usually the case with Rio, everything is far slicker than it needs to be, and misses the bluegrass punch and gospel intensity these boys are capable of. For a shot of the band's true potential, check out their truly unbelievable cover of "Walking in Jerusalem" on the Peace in the Valley compilation. Compared to that high standard, Unbelievable doesn't quite live up to its title, but it's still one heck of good country album. --David Cantwell

Diamond Rio's Unbelievable Talent

"Diamond Rio's distinctive harmonies first drew me to their music. After attending a concert, I was hooked! Unbelievable offers the best of this group's outstanding talent. Some CD's only have one or two good songs. Every song on Unbelievable is a potential hit. I can't stop listening to the awesome tunes of Diamond Rio. No wonder this album was nominated for Album of the Year by the Country Music Awards! Diamond Rio has quickly become my favorite country group and every Diamond Rio CD I buy is a great investment."

"First of all, this album deserves more than the 5 star rating, more like 5000! This group is undoubtably the best band country music has ever seen, and will ever see. If you haven't seen them live, then you have no idea! Their powerful harmonies touch your heart in "You're Gone", and "How the River Feels", and their catchy lyrics in "Unbelievable" just are beyond description. Overall I would have to say that if you think otherwise you need to listen again! Because if you can't hear how great these guys are maybe you should have your hearing checked! If the new album is anything like this one then we're all in for a big treat! :)"
