Playing time: 38:14

Time to party all nite long, with a cold one in one hand and a gal in the other... and all you need to get in the right mood is some cool tunes on the stereo; enter Billion Dollar Babies and their sleazy hard rock anthems.

According to the info-sheet they have been influences by bands like Kiss and Motley Crue, which is quite obvious, I'd say you need throw in some Def Leppard and Aerosmith to get the complete picture. They do separate themselves a bit from the masses with the surprisingly use of wind instruments and the occasionally female second voice.

So if you need an injection of Swedish sleazy party rock then look no further because Billion Dollar Babies is another strong representative of the bottomless pool of talented hard rock bands made in Sweden. "Die for Diamonds" is simple, straight forward and a bit unspectacular hard rock, played with a lot of energy and balls.

So just put this record on, pres #7 "Right on Time", and there you have it: a song that perfectly summarizes what this album and Billion Dollar Babies is about lyrically as well as musically.
