CD Reviews

What a debut!
Johnno | Australia | 10/29/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I threw this on my CD again 26 years after hearing the original and it's still as fresh as I remember. Flowers as they were known then became Icehouse and this was in a time when Australia was going through a real splintering of musical styles. And even then, this album was like a breath of fresh air. Much like U2's Boy album.

It's good to see that young bands are are re-discovering and citing early Icehouse as an influence."
I am so grateful I was turned on to Icehouse!

"There are a couple of CDs that I own that I would pay almost any amount to replace if they where damaged or lost; Modern English "After the Snow", Waxing Poetic "Manakin Moon", Happy The Man and Ice House (aka Flowers by Icehouse). Buy this CD you will never regret it!"
Fantastic debut
Gregory T. Ralls | Philadelphia, PA USA | 06/30/2007

"What a way to start a career! The fully integrated blend of synths & guitars make this album sound ahead of its time, and it seems surprising that Icehouse didn't have a huge worldwide hit off this album. Each song sounds like it was written with the intention of being a single, and that is certainly not a bad thing in this case.

Sure, there is a bit of spot the influence going on here, as many of the songs sound a bit like David Bowie, Bryan Ferry & Ultravox, but it's still a very rewarding listen. The bonus tracks are perhaps even stronger than any of the original album tracks. If you like the blend of keyboards & guitars in a rock music setting, you will probably find this CD enthralling."
