Having been a child of the 80s, this is one of those bands that I somehow remembered enough to get into Ian McNabb's solo stuff as I got older, and that lead me back to The Icicle Works as well.
So when I saw this box set, and at such an amazing price, was too good to let go. And this is more than just the original albums, each comes with added extras, which I assume are B-sides and other lost gems, all of which add up to five albums and around six hours of music.
Listening to the albums again, amazing how much of their stuff I remember, and how some of it really has stood the test of time, ok, not all of it, but let's not get picky. And some of the extra's are fantastic and show the diverse influences that the band clearly had.
If you were a fan of either the Icicle Works or ian McNabb, then this is something you should have, everything by the band in one easy box.
