AllMusic Review by

Combining much of the spirit of other Seattle bands, namely Alice in Chains, Diva is a surprisingly strong record musically. Surprisingly, because the group's metal roots have been exhausted countless times by less capable bands, to the point where the mere mention of the genre makes one shudder. However, on songs such as "Hands and Feet" and "I'm Sorry," the group does much to update the stale genre, creating riff-heavy tracks that are melodic as well. Though the lyrics are, for the most part, ridiculously poor, they are delivered with enough attitude that the listener will hardly notice unless he reads the album booklet.
