Album Review

On their fifth album, the smooth pop style of Australia's Icehouse is garnished with even more bouncy synthesizers and lavish melodies than their earlier work. Lead singer Iva Davies elaborated slant is immediately forthcoming in all the tunes on this album, but is truly the best working part behind the group. Man of Colours' first two tracks attached themselves to the Top 40, with "Crazy" peaking at number 17 in 1987 and "Electric Blue" reaching number seven in 1988, a song co-written by John Oates.

Customer Reviews

Underrated classic

Bought this album on import a good few years ago. Cost me a small fortune then but it was worth every penny, although unfortunately I lost it a couple of years back. Since then I've been checking iTunes for availability and couldn't believe my luck when I saw it was going to be available today. Crazy is my absolute favourite song ever but this album is full of brilliant tunes such as Electric Blue, Kingdom etc. Never understood why they weren't bigger over here as they were (are) far better than a lot of now celebrated bands that were around at that time. Iva Davies, I salute you and hope that one day you get the recognition over here that you deserve. Buy this album :-)

Absolutely superb!

A brilliant album by Aussie band Icehouse and like the other reviewer I am very pleased to see this on sale in the UK store. It is actually one of my favourite albums from the 80s and the best tracks are Heartbreak Kid, Nothing Too Serious and of course Electric Blue. You will not be disappointed by this classic and easily their best ever album.


Heard this band in Australia when on a working holiday 25 years ago, but never bought te album. Can't believe my luck when I came across it in iTunes. If iTunes ever come of apple then I wouldn't touch them with a barge poll. Apple take note.

Though it has had varying personnel, Icehouse was essentially a vehicle for the work of Australian Iva Davies. Davies formed the first version of the band under the name Flowers in 1980 and began scoring hits in Australia with the group's first single, "Can't Help Myself." (Icehouse was the name of Flowers' first album, but the group changed its name as it went international, to avoid conflicts with another band.) They first reached the U.S. charts in 1981 with "We Can Get Together"...
