Put simply, this album is class. Scott and Christine Dente's third release just oozes with quality and perfect originality. Delightful melodies, catchy rhythms and exquisite vocals blend a series of extremely ear-pleasing tunes into an album that is not simply 10 tracks but a listening experience. In particular, the combination from track five through to nine is an utterly gobsmacking achievement of musical massage, highlighting a real depth in compositional ability and spiritual maturity. I could go on and on (Please don't. Ed). Suffice to say 'Diamond Days' has been done to a T, or as they say in pasta cookery, al dente.

Once again, Charlie Peacock has produced quite a masterpiece; this the third release for the duo. This cd is quite the essence of a top notch ccm recording, especially for the 90's era sound. Way to go Charlie!
The poppish "If I Know YOU" starts the list of highly
polished and innovative styled songs. Isn't it true, you don't know what the day will bring as it begins; and somewhere along the line when you least expect it, there comes a surprise!;and you get through.
The next 2 follow up songs "All We Need" and "Unfolding" were heard on ccm radio; great songs! As you listen to the songs of this cd, you will receive there is some type of theme in the weaving.
I hear "open my eyes to see the One that I am waiting for" The song "The One I've Been Waiting For" has hit written all over it!; love this song so much! Scott's background vocals shine, especially on "What Love Is"; another top fave. The exceptional creativeness of how song and tune entwine is awesome!! I luv hearing these songs!
I am glad I got to see them in concert, especially in my hometown. GOD Bless! -Don
