I bought this album after hearing many rave reviews but not many Icarus Line songs. Once I'd heard it for the first time, I was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. After a few listens, the album grew on me and I realised how genius it actually is. It starts with the bass-fueled cracker 'Up Against The Wall Motherf**kers', which is a perfect start to the album. The frantic 'Spit On It' follows and is easily one of the best tracks on the album. Some other highlights from the album are: the phenominally catchy 'On The Lash' with it's amazing guitar riff, 'White Devil' and the Suicide-esque 'Meat Maker'. The album finishes on a high with the excellent 'Sea Sick' and 'Party The Baby Off'. A must for fans of punk and rock 'n' roll alike. Now that I've heard 'Mono', I can say that The Icarus Line have put things up a few notches. A worthwhile purchase.

Well i bought 'Mono' years ago and never really appreciated it til recently when I dug it out and gave it a listen, I found it had some brilliant tracks, having developed an Icarus Line buzz, I went and bought Penance Soiree, I got hooked on this album as soon as I put it on.
It starts with 'up against the wall...', the beat and bass in this song get stuck in your head, its a great track. a fair few tracks are confusing and just sound the same, not to say that they sound bad though. The best tracks here are 'Up against the wall', 'Spike Island', 'White Devil', 'Virgin Velcro'.
Another thing that impressed me with this album is that they decided to make some mellow songs, 'getting bright at night' and 'big sleep' which are great tracks. Cordamone's vocals are distant and hazy but also great, sounding a little like Jack White and the band in general soundin a little like iggy and the stooges. Anyway, this is a great album that is terribly underrated and unknown. get it and you'll feel special since liking this band is like having a great secret.

This band have been called emo. This band have been compared to FuneralFor A Friend. Ha ha ha ha ha ha! No children....this is pure punk rockmade by people who take drugs and break things. On the subject of drugs,the whole album is like a bad acid trip or something. Tis mighty crazyfor sure....think The Jesus And Mary Chain, Spacemen Three, The Stoogesand My Bloody Valentine. Then again I'm sure most of the people who readthis probably think that Funeral For A Friend are the best band in theworld and so those bands will mean nowt to them. Retards. So buy thisalbum, get rid of all your crappy "screamo" CDs, and reflect on how coolyou are.

'.... the future of punk and metal,' wrote on reveiwer, '....music made by people who take drugs and break things,' wrote another, and so on add infinitum. Frankly the best that I can say for it is that it has the most striking cover art I have ever seen. The whole album seems shoddy and underproduced, not in a frantic 'which part of we have no money do you not understand' Bleach era Nirvana way; but in a ' we don't really care' way. Loose doesn't describe the playing, which rarely sounds in tune or on time. This has been made to work in the past, RATM have been quoted as saying that the first thing that they learnt was that they didn't have to play in tune with one another. But RATM can play their instruments and then some.
In addition, people keep hyping this album as some kind of dense, heavy punk metal hybrid, but really it is a badly drawn hybrid of the stooges and the rolling stones with the melodies taken out.
This band sound like Burning Brides and and the Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, but without (for most of the album) the head banging scuzzy garage energy of the former and the dense, highly musical, melodic gloominess of the latter. Which doesn't leave much really.
Nice cover though.
