3.0 out of 5 stars Icon-The Return of S*M*A*S*H 23 Oct 2007
Format:Audio CD
It's been 13 years since their debut 'Self Abused' an underrated classic from the 90's. Smash initially split in 1996 but reformed in 2004, they've played a handful of gigs around London for their hardcore fanbase. They released an E.P. in 2005, but this is their first long-player since their reformation.

The album opens with the pixiesque 'Scratch Until You Bleed' which is layered with melodic hooks, and is played with a sense of urgency. Mellower tracks such as 'It's A Shame' and '15 years' have a guest female vocalist and strings, giving it a Velvet Underground feel. Which is a nice contrast to the rest of the album. (Vocalist) Ed's voice does start to crack on 'Morphine For The Pain', and the production is a little on the tinny side.

On first listen I wasn't too impressed, aside from three standout tracks( All by Myself, Cried at the time and Scratch Until You Bleed) the rest of the album seemed a bit mediocre. However a few listens later they all start to grow on you. 7/10

Aside from being underproduced and have one or two dodgy lyrics, this is a very solid return for Smash. I saw them live last week and they put on a great show, and are very accomplished musicians. I also recommend you buy their debut, which is currently 1.50 here on Amazon.
If you're a fan on the Pixies or Mclusky you'll love this band.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth a listen for fans 24 Aug 2012
By werkshy - Published on Amazon.com
I admit: I've loved the band since their early-90s heyday (I own the deleted-in-one-day "I Want to Kill Somebody" single) and rued the fact that they disappeared so quietly from the music scene after one album. After hearing news of new gigs in the mid-2000s I spent about three years eagerly awaiting new material from S*M*A*S*H, then looked away for a minute (OK, another four years!!) and then they release a whole album of new material. And it's good. Hearing Ed's voice is like reuniting with an old friend. The songwriting has changed since the frenzy of "Self Abused" (as you'd expect after so long a sabbatical) but it still has plenty of energy (in places) and great lyrics: open, heart-on-sleeve, political, fragile.

The production is even patchier than Self Abused, but that's to be expected given the band's circumstances. The duets are a major departure, perhaps not fully integrated with the rest of the record.

"Self Abused" is still my favourite, but Icon is good. How about another album sometime this decade guys?
