Welcome to a long forgotten classic, Yep this is one of the best kept secrets of the 80`s Metal scene. Kerrang once ran a top 50 Melodic Rock/Metal list at No 1 was Journey`s "Escape" & at No2 was......"Night Of The Crime" by Icon. Yep no S**t this album was really that highly rated & now finaly it`s been Remastered & Rereleased & boy is it good !!!All those of you that are into bands such as Journey, Styx, Night Ranger & espiecially Def Leppard then this is right up your street. The production on this album is very very "Pyromania" by the Lepps, Just take a listen to "Rock My Radio". This Album drips one killer track after another, "Missing" "Danger Calling" "Shot At My Heart" "Out For Blood" the list is endless to coin a phrase " All Killer NO Filler" Yes this album really is that good. This edition contains a nice little inner sleeve written by one time Kerrang writer Derek Oliver explaining what happend to the Band as they released this album originaly in 85 & it`s very enlightning. A band that had the world at there feet & threw it all away, what a shame. Still we have this Album to remind us how good Icon were. If you like your Metal singable with big catchy tunes & great hooks then this is a must buy...

I first heard this album on its released in the mid 80's when Icon had their hey day in the states.
I was impressed with the catchy keyboard/guitar driven chorus's this band made their trade mark, which now has given the cult status since their breakup in the mid 90's
Blistering guitars from bands mainstay, Dan Wexler, dominate each of the tracks.
Out for blood is the albums finest track with a well crafted Guitar solo into, leading to a killer riff.
This album will appeal to a wide range of tastes, Hard and heavy to melodic rock , as this album has it all. A cult Classic and a must to every rock fans collection

An absolute undiscovered AOR/Metal classic. This CD has everything. If you like your rock hard, but with plenty of melody and catchy hooky choruses, then this is the CD for you. This band should have been HUGE with a capital H. Buy it or regret it forever. Long live ICON!! PS. Don't buy the live CD if advertised. It is a cheap live recording with very poor sound quality, and does not warrant the expense.
