A small miracle

Having first encountered this band via a Byrds tribute that contained Icicle Works doing a terrific cover of Chestnut Mare, I then stumbled on this album in a cut-out bin twenty years ago. My version doesn't contain One True Love or Two Two Three; probably just as well. What I DO have in BLIND is an astonishing album that I come back like a migrating salmon. With well over a thousand CDs to choose from on the shelf, not to mention LPs, this keeps finding its way back to the changer. My favorites are the softer songs like Starry Blue Eyed Wonder and Little Girl Lost, but the uptempo tracks work, too. The production is faultless, each instrument clear as a bell. What a pleasure to find a rock singer who can actually SING, working with rather than against his material. The expanded version of this LP, newly out on iTunes, might be too much of a good thing to start with, but bless my cotton socks, it's got Chestnut Mare––and I've been searching for that in a digital format for a long, long time. For those seeking only a secular point of view, Icicle Works ain't it; MacNabb is deeply religious, not unlike Mike Scott, but his references aren't as constant, so it can take a while to notice. So glad iTunes has posted more of this band.

Underrated. Eclectic. Great Songs. Worth your time.

This band is one of the most underrated, yet talented and eclectic bands of the 80's. Great songs (Ian McNabb), great bass playing (Chris Layhe), awesome drumming (Chris Sharrock). There is a self-titled debut album unavailable on iTunes worth hunting down at most online CD outlets. Give them a try if you like most styles of music because they seem to have a little of everything in the mix.

The Icicle Works were one of those U.K. groups of the '80s that scored one fluke hit in the U.S. despite a somewhat lengthy and more successful run in their homeland. They released a number of albums that, while regularly inconsistent, featured scattered moments that helped define the type of big-sounding guitar rock -- prone to chest-beating bombast -- that set them apart from fellow Liverpool-based groups like Echo & the Bunnymen, the Teardrop Explodes, and (somewhat less so) Wah! The group formed...
