4.0 out of 5 stars Buy it for 'Whisper', love it for ALL tracks June 18, 2013
Verified Purchase
one of the great 80's albums that is often relegated to 'one hit wonders'. My friends and i would play this end to end over and over. Glad to have the CD, as i can now rip some obscure favorite tracks to a playlist.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent November 30, 2009
I got this playing one of my favorate ever games--go into a record shop and grab whatever you can out of the dollar bin. This is one of 50 I got for $30.

And it is really good. This is definately 1980s, with lots of keybords and that electric drum sound. But in contains power pop and harder tracks, many of which have a drum attack, that, frankly, reminds me more of Ginger Baker's African rampages.

Lately I have been reliving my youth, listening to the more sophistacated 80s bands like ABC and Prefab Sprout and Tears For Fears. I put Icicle works in that catagory. It might not be the art rock I think of when I think of King Crimson, but for the era, this art band is very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Icicle Works - Rather Hot Debut Album November 25, 2005
This is one of those Albums that you just hope doesn't end. Ian Mcnabb and crew perform with the Zest and Lust only found in most debut albums. "Whisper To A Scream (Bird's Fly)" had some air play on MTV in the Mid 80's. Mcnabb's songs had more of a positive attitude compared to other band from the time period. Later Albums had darker lyrics. I truly enjoyed this record. I wore out the cassette. They were more popular in their homeland, the U.K., then in the U.S.
