4.0 excellentwalfernu | January 25th 11

It's plain to see that this album is not for everyone. Commercial driven tunes with saccharine choruses, and gang vocal harmonies are not everyone's cup of tea, but when done right, it certainly is mine, and from the desert plains of Arizona, Icon manufactured such a release. Youthful driving energy and songs with pomp and purpose, this variety of tunes ranges from stadium pounding hard rock to gorgeous melodies backed by poppy synth. While "Night of the Crime" may not exactly be genius in the lyrical department, it is extremely difficult to find fault in their tight song structures, which are given plenty of room to breathe and flow and hard driven by passionate performances, especially where vocals are concerned. If you are searching for a masterpiece of softer melodic rock, then look no further than the catchy "Night of the Crime". This album proves that they simply do make them like they used to. If you believe it might be primitive due to its time period then think again, for not many releases since...even with better equipment and album production...has managed to overthrow this one from its firmly held melodic throne. Simply magical.
