3 stars If you want an excellent sampler of Max Webster, this is the one for the curious as it includes almost every kind of genre in the world of Max Webster and their first 4 albums. DIAMONDS DIAMONDS is also the sampler for the Max Webster completist as it includes _Overnight Sensation_(great cowbell!) and the slacker _Hot Spots_ which predates the indie band PAVEMENT by about 20 years. The 2 aforementioned tracks were released solely on this compilation and no other album. The first 3 tracks are from the album _High Class In Borrowed Shoes_. _Gravity_ instantly engulfing the listener into the strange world of Max Webster. Probably the best track(re: Gravity) to show anyone who has never heard of Max Webster. A balanced assessment of their entire work. Also features the hit _Let Go The Line_ which darn near made Max Webster INTERNATIONAL pop stars. I kid you not. This compilation could have been better served with a one prog.rock classic, especially one of the _Moon_ tracks from their albums HIGH CLASS IN BORROWED SHOES or MUTINY UP MY SLEEVE.
