Icehouse produced four brilliant albums in the 1980's and this is the first one. It marked a two-fold change for the band in that they changed from Flowers to Icehouse, and that lead singer Iva Davies essentially took control of the band, playing most of the instruments here. Although later Icehouse albums would have a distinctly 80's sound this one manages to sound quite unique - it's use of keyboards sounding far ahead of its time. Standout tracks are the singles Street Cafe, Love In Motion and Hey Little Girl (one of the few Icehouse tracks to chart in the UK). My favourite track is Great Southern Land, it's a song that makes me think of Australia, its sunny weather and lust for life.

I remember having this album on tape when I was at secondary school. Back then (circa 1986/7), this album was called 'Love In Motion' here in the UK, and not 'Primitive Man'. Like the re released/remastered debut album, the track running order is different from the original UK release, and the absence of the song 'Love In Motion' is notable.
What hasn't changed is the quality of the songs on offer. I speak with the bias of someone who rolls back the years while listening to this music, but I challenge anyone not to fall in love with the songs on this record.
'Uniform', 'Trojan Blue','Goodnight Mr. Matthews' and the quite brilliant 'Great Southern Land' are big, more involving showstoppers (by 80s pop/rock standards), while 'Street Cafe', 'Mysterious Thing' and hit single 'Hey Little Girl', are more radio friendly efforts. There's even an instrumental track, 'Glam'.
Musically, by 1982/3, Icehouse were moving away from the clear influence of The Cars, and were instead cutting their own groove. Having said that, Iva Davies still sounds more like David Bowie, than David Bowie, and out Bryan Ferrys Bryan Ferry at times.
It's a mixed bag of top, top, tracks and I'm thrilled that the passage of time hasn't affected my love of these songs, or this band while I've been revisiting their records.
Absolutely essential stuff.

13 of 14 people found the following review helpful By Mark Barry HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 8 May 2007
Format: Audio CD
This album was originally released in 1982 in the USA and Australia as "Primitive Man". However, confusion arises because it was re-issued in the UK in 1983 as "Love In Motion" with a different track list and different front cover. The UK 1983 version had the same inner sleeve as the original 1982 issue, which is what's reproduced in the expanded CD booklet here. This CD is called "Primitive Man" because it's been based on the USA issue (Warner Brothers Remasters).

The original 1982 LP "Primitive Land" tracks were:
Side 1. 1. Great Southern Land 2. Uniform 3. Hey Little Girl 4. Street Cafe 5. Glam
Side 2. 1. Trojan Blue 2. One By One 3. Break These Chains 4. Mysterious Thing 5. Goodnight Mr. Matthews

The 1983 UK LP "Love In Motion" tracks were:
Side 1. 1. Uniform 2. Street Cafe 3. Hey Little Girl 4. Glam 5. Great Southern Land
Side 2. 1. Trojan Blue 2. Love In Motion 3. Mysterious Thing 4. One By One 5. Goodnight, Mr. Matthews

The 11 tracks spread across both of the LP variants above are all on this 17-track CD along with 6 extras added on:
"Over The Line", "Glam (12" Version)", Uniform (12" German Version)", "Street Cafe (Single Mix)", "Can't Help Myself (Live)" and "We Can Get Together (Live)"

The bonus tracks mostly gather up rare 12" single B-sides - like the German sung version of "Uniform" which is incredibly difficult to find on original vinyl - so they're all welcome inclusions here.

I bought these albums in the 80's and loved their sound then - and still do - a sort of Australian Cars meets Roxy Music meets Talk Talk meets Spandau meets Thomas Dolby meets Prefab Sprout meets...well you get the idea.

Format: Audio CD
At a very impressionable age I first heard 'Hey Little Girl', I had never been in love or fully understood the turmoil of love that affects us all as we grow older and discover the world around us. However I fortunately went out and bought a cassette of 'Love In Motion' which was the title used for 'Primitive Man' in the UK at that time.
I listened intently and enjoyed what I heard. The album opens with 'Uniform' a kind of attack on the regimentation of certain styles of life or careers. Then comes the beautiful 'Street Cafe' (a slightly crisper version on this CD with stronger piano) which is meloncholy and calming. (A personal favourite).
'Hey Little Girl' is the track that non fans will know and needs no review.
The rest of the tracks are great. Amazingly, virtually unknown in the UK, 'Great Southern Land' is an absolute classic being a theme song for Oz with a kind of history lesson running through it.
'Trojan Blue' starts beautifully and winds up to a smooth love song.
Iva Davies has said that he was going through relationship sadness during the writing of this album and it is seen all the way from start to finish. He is an accomplished singer / songwriter and musician and was credited for a large percentage of the music on 'Primitive Man'.
I think to enjoy this album you need to have experienced a certain kind of sadness but you must also have a outlook of hope.
During the early eighties when the 'story video' was in vogue (sadly not any longer just synchronised dancing...yawn) one guy seemed to be behind so many classics. Russell Mulcahy directed the videos for Hey Little Girl and Street Cafe and they must rank as two of the best. You should still be able to get the 'Great Southern Land' video on Oz import (PAL works on PAL UK - NOT NTSC!)
I could not possibly say how many times I have listened to this album. It would be in my top ten without question.
If you like it get 'Man Of Colours'...
