AllMusic Review by

Diamonds and Emeralds is a long-overdue retrospective of Care's sadly brief career; compared to the vast majority of their synth-pop peers, the duo was the very essence of understatement, with Paul Simpson's relaxed vocals perfectly complementing Ian Broudie's simple yet engaging electronic sound. In addition to their lone hit, "Flaming Sword," athe collection also includes their debut single "My Boyish Days," as well as "Cymophane" and "An Evening in the Ray."
