Pop & Rock: Year in Review 2010
Buzzed about since forever, Toronto glam-pop-rocker Diamond Rings (aka the D'Urbervilles' John O'Regan) made his glitter-streaked debut with Special Affections. With nine tracks of devastatingly awesome hooks, innocuously introspective lyrics and smart electro-dance production, it's an ambitious debut from the David Bowie-Ian Curtis love child. Backed by established hits "All Yr Songs" and "Show Me Your Stuff" Special Affections was a promise delivered with charm, nuance and lots of shimmer.
