It doesn't have quite the same energy that Icon and Night of the Crime had, but Right Between the Eyes is still an impressive album. New vocalist Jerry Harrison gives the band a rougher sound not unlike Pretty Maids' Ronnie Atkins. The songs seem to have a heavier edge this time around. They're still melodic, but they rock a lot harder. The guest appearance by the legendary Alice Cooper on Two for the Road and Holy Man's War was a nice bonus. Let the Hollywood bands worry about their hairdos and spandex, Icon was here to rock, and that's just what they did.
Right Between the Eyes would prove to be Icon's final studio offering. Fans of the 80's melodic hard rock scene absolutely must check out Icon, and while I'd definitely recommend this album, I'd suggest starting at their self-titled debut album and working forward to Right Between the Eyes.
NOTE: Wounded Bird reissued Right Between the Eyes in 2008. Like all Wounded Bird reissues, it has not been digitally remastered, nor does it have any bonus material. It's great to see this forgotten album back in print, but if you're one of the lucky few that already own the 1989 version there's no need to replace it.
Anyway, the only songs that I liked on this album were:
RIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES, FAR CRY FROM LOVE, HOLY MAN'S WAR & FOREVER YOUNG.
This is not an essential album but those songs mentioned above are really worth getting. I am not fond of this vocalist as compared to Stephen Clifford of the first two albums. I think his name is Jerry and he is portraying a more gruff and tuff image but I don't think he fits well and not as romantic as Stephen Clifford.
