Moonlight on Diamond Head presents eleven exotic, slow- to medium-tempo instrumentals (two with chorus). "Moonlight on Diamond Head," "Hawaiian Punch," and "Hula Eyes" are great but not as exceptional as earlier work. Other fine tunes are the exotic "Yellow Bird," "Bali Ha'i," and "Pagan Love Song"; Hawaiian standards include "Lovely Hula Hands," "Moon of Manakoora," "Now is the Hour," and "Aloha Oe." Though one of the most even albums by the group, Moonlight on Diamond Head takes no risks and delivers no surprises to anyone familiar with either Hawaiian music or the Waikikis.
