AllMusic Review by

To the shock of metalheads worldwide circa the early 21st century, Diamond Head existed without the presence of one of their founding members, singer Sean Harris. Despite being able to put aside their differences sporadically over the years for reunion tours and albums, by 2004, it was agreed that guitarist Brian Tatler was going to carry on using the Diamond Head name without Harris, who was replaced with new singer Nick Tart. Diamond Head's 'Tart era got off to a surprisingly mainstream-sounding start with 2005's All Will Be Revealed, which was followed a year later by a live set by the new lineup, It's Electric. The majority of the track listing is comprised of vintage Harris-Tatler compositions (two renditions of "Am I Evil?," a short intro, and then again as a full-length version, "Helpless," the title track, etc.), while the newer, more mainstream material was kept to a minimum ("Give It to Me," "Alimony"). For hardcore fans only.
