Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded deluxe three CD edition of the Liverpudlian band's 1987 album including two bonus CDs filled with non-album tracks. The Ian Broudie-produced Defeat Your Enemy brought out the band's varying influences in different ways, resulting in a varied record touching on everything from Funk to Folk. Unquestionably, the band's knack for big, uplifting but not hollow performances was still in fine flower, as the smash single 'Understanding Jane' showed. A quick, fierce rocker with an instantly catchy pop vibe and a brilliant chorus, it's a '50s tearjerker filtered through the Ramones with fantastic results. Cherry Red.

Well, as always, Cherry Red either gets it so right or totally wrong...in this case it's TOTALLY wrong. When I began playing CD1, I was sure some settings must have changed on my stereo...but nope, they were the same as always. This mastering is dull and muddy and muffled. I even popped in my original Beggars Banquet CD for side-by-side comparison. The BB versions is crystal clear. Tragic. And what's more tragic is, the muffled mastering carries over to the great second disc of bonus tracks (I don't care personally about the 3rd live CD). For me, it's nice to have the CD of bonus tracks, but I'm still bummed that it sounds bad. And yes, I WILL be keeping my beggars banquet CD as well. Track listing:

1-1 Hope Springs Eternal 4:08
1-2 Travelling Chest 4:42
1-3 Sweet Thursday 4:19
1-4 Up Here In The North Of England 5:14
1-5 Who Do You Want For Your Love ?

I have to agree wholeheartedly with the previous review, this amazing album suffers from an extremely poor remaster. Ian McNabb's voice certainly loses it's polish and the instrumentation appears muddy. Strangely, the one track that does stand out is The Needle & The Damage Done on the second CD. It's as if someone else mastered that track.
I already own the vast majority of the tracks on vinyl and cassette versions of the original releases but found when all the b-sides and extras are gathered together, the songs sound disjointed. The b-sides of the Up Here in the North of England 12" sound particularly jarring to me, like a badly performed sonic experiment.

On the plus side: the packaging and sleeve notes are excellent, it is certainly a collection worth having, I'll just put my copy of the previously released version of this album in this, much nicer, package.

This is by far the best cd by The Icicle Works, I can listen to it over and over again without ever getting tired of it. The song " Sweet Thursday" is one of their very best. This cd should be entitled" The Best Of The Icicle Works'!!
