I'm from Germany and spent my vacation in London in ' That's where i got to see Icehouse live for their first european performance,before they even had their first hit. To say i was stunned is an understatement. Immediately i bought their album. However,noe that i finally got the original Aussie release,i feel shortchanged.
There are at least 3 additional songs on the original. Nonetheless,this debut is one of the finest albums of the 80ies. And that decade just barely begun. There are no fillers on this one and is far superior compared to what was considered 'New Wave' at the time. Iva Davies' songwriting and musical skills were already fantastic from the start. It is impossible to pick favorites from this outing. That was another rarity in that decade.
Other bands had mostly fillers and yet they enjoyed far more success than Icehouse. That Icehouse would stand the test of time was clear at the time of their second release 'Primitive Man'. Come to think of it,it's equally hard to pick a favorite album. But it's always good to start out with this one,their mesmerizing debut.
Greatest cover i've ever heard,and what a sound! This cd is more of a rocker and they had another one later on with 'Code Blue'. And that is exactly what i appreciate about Iva Davies:he evolved and what a ride it was to follow him. One person found this helpful. Hope this helps. Icehouse forever!

I haven't listened to it in years, but remembered really loving their sound and 80s melodic stylings. Still sounded good after the passage of time. Thanks to the other well informed reviewers for their information about this cheaper imported version than the American release as Icehouse, which would have cost much more. Same great songs with a couple of bonus tracks, which the more expensive American version did not contain.
Bought from Fulfillmenticity. Great service, no problems and order arrived very quickly, much sooner than the window of delivery time given when the order was placed. Would definitely order again from this seller. This remastered edition adds 3 more bonus tracks to the 3 bonus tracks that were featured on the initial CD release really 6 bonus tracks.
My only complaint is that the production on this album is disappointingly tinny-sounding and the mixing is weak. This album was released in in the U.

Retrieved Countdown Memories.This is the first Icehouse album, and as far as debuts go it's an outstanding record. Musically it's reminiscent of The Cars, but without the humour, and vocally, singer/songwriter/guitarist/overall bandleader, Iva Davies is a cross between Bryan Ferry and David Bowie/5(24).
