5.0 out of 5 stars ICEHOUSE ON TOP FORM. 23 Dec 2011
By chuffe
Format:Audio CD
Bought a video of Icehouse in concert performed in Melbourne in 1980,and have waited 31 years for a dvd to come out,so as I can watch on my 32" tv,and what can I say,really worth the wait,absolutly brilliant,bought the package on Amazon Markeplace for 16.51,what a bargain,although even at Amazons price of 35.53 would still be worth it to me,plus you get the added 2 cds,although in the Amazon description it only says 1 cd,and no mention of the dvd,if they were would no doubt sell more copies,took 10 days to come from New Zealand,and arrived 23rd december,made my Xmas!!

5.0 out of 5 stars White Hot Icehouse Hits and Videos. 26 Jan 2012
Format:Audio CD
Whilst I agree that there appears to be a rather heavy handed approach taken to the remastering of the tracks contained on "Icehouse White Heat",let's remember we are talking about single/radio mixes.They were originally mixed and mastered,sometimes compressed to be a little punchier so as to sound ok being broadcast on radio. This collection is based on the single/radio versions which is where I believe some confusion as to the term remaster is applied. Keep in mind,for the most part,they are different versions to the mixes that were featured on their respective albums.In fact some of the tracks were so significantly remixed that they sound like different takes."Street Cafe","Baby,You're So Strange" and "Man of Colours" are just three examples.I actually like the new masters.I'm hearing detail in these tracks I've not heard before and believe me,I know this bands music well.
But let's not argue about whether the audio is up to scratch,I personally think it's awesome.The real juicy part of this collection is the dvd.
Thirty-three promo videos,some of which are alternate versions,here for your visual and aural delight.Everything from the edgy debut single (when they were known in Australia as Flowers)"Can't Help Myself",the classic "Great Southern Land",my personal favourite "Nothing Too Serious" up to the last single released from the Big Wheel album "Invisible People".Finishing off with a couple of rare Australian TV performances.
There has never been such an extensive collection of Icehouse videos released before this title and to have them all here on the one disc is incredible value(much cheaper here in Australia).In the words of our esteemed music guru Molly Meldrum,"do yourself a favour" and pick up a copy of White Heat.It's red hot!
Also recommended,the reissue of their classic debut album,"Icehouse (30th Anniversary ed)".
"Great Southern Land,In The Sleeping Sun.."

4.0 out of 5 stars Icehouse Complete Singles 6 Oct 2012
By Son75
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this album on a whim because I already have all their studio albums but just couldn't pass over the DVD containing all the clips. What's more, some songs here are slightly different from the original version because they were edited for the radio. The only album that doesn't have any song in this compilation is the 'Berlin Tapes' which contains only covers. This may explain that.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic songs, intrusive "remastering"... 12 Nov 2011
By smash
Format:Audio CD
Edited to add - there is a large portion of my tongue firmly in my cheek in the following review - I can summarise it very quickly - the remastering has changed the sound of some the tracks massively, if that may worry you listen on Spotify first for free before shelling out (it's the perfect app for comparing original/remasters back to back).

Ichouse were the soundtrack to my mid/late 80's and produced, to me at any rate, some of the best songs about at that time. I played Man of Colours on tape (youngsters note: tape cassette - a kind of analogue removable memory cartridge that could store, oh say 20 odd songs*) to death whilst boyracering around Essex in my black Gordini Turbo in 1987. 1987. 24 years ago. Oh god. Here comes the depression. Youth. Hell just being slim! Anyways, all the tracks on Measure for Measure and Man of Colours represent poignant and happy memories for me. I think it was this Man of Colours I was listening to when I encountered another black Gordini Turbo on `my' patch and set out to prove that my car was indeed blacker than his until we got pulled by a plain clothes rozzer who, it turns out, wasn't too impressed with my overtaking technique (wrong side of the bollard on a zebra crossing). His opening words to me will be etched on my memory forever *ahem* "You must be some kind of c***!!!!" Essex coppers. Great stuff. Where were we? Yes, every song is like a little time capsule - you know how things just trip forgotten memories? It's all like that - well it is if you were into Icehouse at the time and for that, this compilation is truly marvelous.

Now the bad (and it is really bad in some cases) - the term "remaster" in this instance basically means every track has been run through additional compression and some pretty brutal limiting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 19 Sep 2011
By Tony
Format:Audio CD
Icehouse to me were for years that one hit wonder Australian band who did that catchy song Crazy. I also had memories of a catchy song called Hey Little Girl but didn't know it was them. Looking up the Crazy video on youtube earlier this year, led me on to other songs that I had never heard and I couldn't believe how good they were. Iva Davies was I found out, the fulcrum, Mr Icehouse. His talent is enormous.

Listening to White Heat at times it seems like a few different bands because the style kept changing over the years and Iva Davies voice sounds different at different periods. There are thirty songs on two discs. I wouldn't say the first four songs on this sound like The Undertones. Its just what I think of. The simple yet brilliant angsty new wave thingy. No it doesn't sound like anybody else but its part of that genre. Can't help Myself is Australia's Teenage Kicks except its better. This was absolutely butchered on the dance remix album I got for want of nothing better at the time, so after listening to the proper version on you tube I was delighted I could get hold of it on a cd when White Heat came out. The intro to the song is fantastic with some kind of I don't know, keyboards? I just love the sound of this.

Its followed up by We Can Get Together. The dance remix version did its best to conceal what a brilliant song this it. The keyboard thing in the background reminds me of Kim Wilde's Kids in America but that came out in 1981 and this was on a 1980 Icehouse album I think. Walls is more of the same kind of angsty punkish tunefull. Icehouse is a kind of creepy effort that creeps up on you after a few listens. Two more fantastic songs.

I can't believe I had never heard Love in Motion before seeing the video on yt.
