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.

About time

If it wasn't for Electric Blue coming up on a Pandora I wouldn't have thought to check iTunes again for Ice House. I gave up years ago!

Wow, I had almost given up hope...

I remember buying the cassette when Man of Colours came out. Over the years it got wore out and lost. Now I finally have got the music back, plus a bunch of tracks that were never on the casette version! Whoo-hoo!

I love this music, and listen to it a lot, definitely an all time favorite for me. I remember after listening to Heartbreak Kid for the first time back in '87 or '88 that they should have released it as a was certainly at least as good as the other singles I was hearing on the airwaves at the time.

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"...
