In my ears, all three studio albums have a different sound; but I love all three! I only remember Danger Calling from the 80's as it was on a mix tape someone made for me back then, but I never explored further. Then, a few years back, they re released Night of the Crime and my buddy grabbed it from an online site. Fun bit of nostalgia. I found a nice copy of Right Between the Eyes a few years back for $10 and then grabbed the Axe Killer Warrior's Set of the first two off the bay new for like $30 shipped. Love it. I had no idea that there were two versions of the Night of the Crime. I would like to hear a ballsier version of this Lp; have to see if I can find it on Youtube or something.

I thoroughly enjoy the first album, the rest I have never liked. The second album has a few good songs, "Danger Calling," "Hungry for Love," and what is my favorite Icon song, "Out for Blood."

I have learned every song from their first two albums and have been trying to find the time to transcribe them. I did transcribe a full instrument gp5 file to Out for Blood, which I uploaded to Ultimate-Guitar.com. Will have to do the others though at some point.

More Perfect Union is a 1987 release by Arizona glam metal band Icon.
The album, initially released on cassette only,
featured a Capitol Records logo like their previous two major label albums,
but was in essence an independent release
as guitarist Dan Wexler states that, "We lost the deal from Capitol in October/November 1985."

After losing the deal and frontman Stephen Clifford,
the band played a few shows with new singer Steven Young.
However, before starting work on this album, he was replaced by Jerry Harrison,
as guitarist John Aquilino was replaced by keyboardist Kevin Stoller,
known for his work with Stevie Nicks among others.

The cassette originally contained ten tracks, sold out quickly
and became a sought-after collectible due to the band's worldwide cult status.
Due to fan demand, the album was re-released in 1995 on CD
with the title An Even More Perfect Union
and included seven bonus tracks, selling initially as a limited numbered edition
autographed by Dan Wexler. The later printings are easily identified
as they have the logo and title - in a different color.

This one's been on the 'ol Want List for a number of years now. I search for it every few months and there's always a copy to ne had for around $30 total (shipping and tax) which isn't awful, but there always seems to be something else I would rather spend the money on.
