5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding album, 12 Dec 2013
This review is from: Head Like a Rock (Audio CD)
Every now and then there comes along a real gem - one that sees it's way back onto your player wherever you are. This is one. I had been a big Icicle Works fan and loved Ian's voice then. His solo career should have been better recognized by the music industry because this is one of Britain's most talented singer songwriters for decades.
Head Like A Rock was nominated for the Mercury Prize and got some promotion as a result. It deserves it.
With Crazy Horse in tow this couldn't disappoint. He mixes up really clever slower tracks with rock and great production numbers. My favourite because of the lyrics and emotion he puts into it is May You Always, which most listeners will be moved by. You Must Be Prepared To Dream is immaculate as is Still Got The Fever. Do you know what? All tracks are superb.
See him live, whether an acoustic set or an electric one or sometimes he does half and half, with the occasional surprise guest!
So 20 years old this cd now and still as fresh, relevant and brilliant as when it came out. Also love the cover.
