Queen of Diamonds Reviews

From the bottom of my heart, I am glad The Falcons have produced such a beautiful album.Yuzo Sasaki, GUITAR GRAPHIC, Japan

Queen of Diamonds must be the most eagerly awaited debut instrumental album since The Shadows LP in 1961.Alan Taylor & Dave Burke, PIPELINE

The Falcons sound mixes the energy of The Ventures with the twangy atmosphere of The Shadows. For fans of instrumental rock this will be an essential purchase.Sean Berry, THE CONTINENTAL, USA

In this excellent album, The Falcons are better than ever!Sergio Nascimento, INSTRUMENTAL NEWSLETTER, Brazil
