Image of Diamond Rings


Diamond Rings defies laws of time and space. Electro-pop maestro John O makes music that exists outside specific eras, distilling encyclopedic knowledge and passion into laser-like beams of emotional immediacy. Physical limits don't bother him much, either. True to his D.I.Y. background, he composes highly personal songs in a tiny bedroom studio in Toronto's West End, yet is ...

Editorial Reviews

Modern electro-pop maestro Diamond Rings returns with his most compelling release yet. Co-produced by the Grammynominated
Damien Taylor (Bjork, The Killers, Prodigy, UNKLE, Robyn), Free Dimensional transcends boundaries, taking
new wave and glam influences and giving them an edgy contemporary spin. With a debut album universally acclaimed
at Pitchfork, SPIN and others, Diamond Rings have upped the game on his second album, with state-of-the-art production
and infectious heartfelt songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Diamond Rings Shines Brighter Than Ever November 3, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Diamond Rings makes his triumphant return with new found confidence and an album that stomps all over the simple charms of Special Affections. The sparse production of the debut has been replaced by a punchier sonic assault that gives each one of these hits an unavoidable impact. Gone too are the somber moments, as Diamond Rings is only interested in having fun this time round, and he's made sure we all do as well by delivering an album that's unrelentingly lively and uplifting.

Most outstanding standout would have to be "Put Me On", which cruises along magnificently and includes not only some of the album's best lyrics but a great guitar solo as well. Also worthy of adoration and acclaim is tasty little pop tart "A To Z", a delightful confection you might find yourself craving for some time, and right there you've got the two best Diamond Rings songs to date, but I'm not done. "Stand My Ground" is one more slice of happiness with a cool pre-chorus on top whose lyric "... painting rainbows 'til I run out of sky" makes an already fantastic song just that much more so. Free Dimensional also allows Diamond Rings to showcase his rap skills once again, but unlike "Show Me Your Stuff", the raps aren't forced but rather seamlessly inserted with "(I Know) What I'm Made Of" having the best one.

Bolstered by the aforementioned upgrades in the production department, Diamond Rings shines brighter than ever on all fronts and his brilliance is so blinding, it's no wonder he's wearing shades. There just isn't a dull moment to be found, and so the end result is an album by an artist so in the zone that it really is beyond criticism. He's quite simply outdone himself and surpassed all expectations with no further convincing needed: Diamond Rings is for real, and this is a star-making album. / RATING: Excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is fantastic and will make you happy and feel good October 26, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This follow up to Special Affections is spectacular. Lyrically it is a more confident, lighter, happier cd compared to Special Affections. Sonically it still has an electro-pop sound with riffs from guitars mixed in. It really shows a growth from the last cd because of it's fuller sound. It has an 80's and 90's vibe to it, he even raps on a few tracks. You won't be able to not dance while listening to it! Again another cd by Diamond Rings that is perfect in every way. He truly is one of a kind.

If Diamond Rings comes to a city where you're at you gotta see him live because he sounds great live and he puts on a great show!

5.0 out of 5 stars '80s synth pop brilliance October 23, 2012
By C. King
Free Dimensional is a grooy little number that swims around your inner ear and refuses to leave. the queer- and gender-conscious (stand-out lyrics include "i was taught to know the difference between boy and girl names") frontman of Diamond Rings follows up his first album with something funkier, poppier, and dancier. it's also utterly fabulous. a must listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Impressed May 7, 2014
Format:Audio CD
I'm not sure how I stumbled upon Diamond Rings, but I'm glad I did. His second album, "Free Dimensional" didn't disappoint. Although it has a slightly different sound compared to the album "Special Affections", it's still unmistakably the same artist.

This music has a really solid sound. Each song is different, including the vocals. (Listen to the first tune, "Everything Speaks", and that deep crawling voice and then try the '80s-esque synth sweetness that is "All the Time" and tell me how many artists can flip around like that on a single album today.) There are also unapologetic love songs all over the place. The entire work is poppy and generally fun, but with notes of yearning or loneliness ("I'm Just Me" sounds out in this category). Love finding an album and a musician who doesn't sound like anyone else out there. None of this monotone dead-voiced imitation Nick Drake singing or the ridiculous note carrying stuff that's so popular these days. (But if you strain hard, you'll probably see some influence from Erasure.)

And like some artists that are pretty popular these days, his "look" isn't just a performance.

But enough about what Diamond Rings isn't.

What this musician is: fantastic.

And buy that first album if you haven't already.

3.0 out of 5 stars He's Just He April 30, 2014
Format:Audio CD
This one's not bad but I have to say I find his first CD Special Affections to be leaps and bounds better than this one.
I think the image is perfected as is the music is much more polished but I think the lyrics are really lacking.
My favorite song is 5. I'm Just Me, it's a really good anthem song.
Oh and while I'm going on about things on this recording, he really shouldn't rap it's just not good.
Over all I feel this one has less spirit and heart than Special Affections does.

5.0 out of 5 stars 80s Throwback With Modern Flare June 21, 2013
By Katie
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
The pop of the cover art originally caught my attention, but after listening to the samples I knew immediately that this album was for me. It has a fantastic and fun 80s inspired sound, rich vocals, and catchy lyrics. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for an album to play on repeat!

5.0 out of 5 stars Take me back to a cheesier day March 29, 2013
By Josh
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this album. It's old school synthesizer pop and it's a lot of fun to listen to. The lyrics are the expected campiness "I won't forget not to forget you." There are definitely some great turn it up loud songs on here and I'll look for more albums.
