Late 80's rock that will send you back in time...

"High Hair, tight leather, and guitars are all the rage in 1989, the year of this self titled release by the band Diving for Pearls. This Survivor-influenced, love-struck, 5 piece band is one of the best you haven't heard. Danny Malone and Yul Vasquez duel harmonies and guitars with the best of em. Nothing too flashy, just great sounding choruses that will echo in your head for years- the opening track Gimme Your Good Lovin' is almost THE perfect song. Jack Moran and David Weeks each get their turn in on keyboard and bass, respectively, and are paced by Peter Clemente on drums. Listening to this album from start to finish- everyone will identify with these great songs in one way or another, as every one of them will touch your heart. Ok, some may call this album cheesy, or too cliche- but, imagine being 17 years old, head over heels in love with your first "real" girlfriend....this album puts into words what you could never say. Yea, it gets a little "ballady" at times, but there are more than enough tracks with nifty little guitar parts and drum beats that stick in your head to ignore this album. So, what happened to this band? I wish I knew, cause this is one of those bands that just never made it, and they wrote better songs than most. It's sad that "popular music" is determined by how much money your label uses to promote you, cause these guys could have been the reincarnation of Bon Jovi!"

"This is no doubt the very best of the heavy crank it out love tune discs of the 80's. One will never know exactly why Diving For Pearls went their seperate ways and gave it all up. This band could still be rocking today. Too bad they're gone."
