Artist: Beautiful 2000, Album: What It Is, What It Was, What It Could Be, Song: Good Diamond

"I can't begin to tell you just how I feel.  You would never believe me if I told you I was telling the truth."  Beautiful 2000 were a Toronto band that released their first EP in 1998.  They were featured in CFNY's new rock search that year.  The trio was comprised of brothers, Marc and Danny Stapleford as well as Mez Dilauro.  Their EP caught the attention of Jay Ferguson from the band, Sloan.  That connection enabled the band to open for Sloan during their university tour.  The band released their first full length in 1999, entitled, What It Is..., What It Was.... , What It Could Be.  It was a great album full of jangly pop gems, like this track, Good Diamond.  The band had some good support from College Radio and remarkably, did well selling their tracks for movies and television.  They would go on to release a couple more albums between 1999 and 2003.  Your best place to get your hands on this album is at  It doesn't appear that the band is still together.  There is a MySpace page though (  All three members are still active in music.  Mez Dilauro is actually in a new band called, How I Won The War, and runs a recording studio in Toronto, called, Studio W19.  You can hear the track, Good Diamond, on You Tube (  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
