This is the 3rd release from ICON, after losing their singer and one guitarist. I didn't expect it to be as good as the first two albums, but I was very surprised. The vocals by new singer Jerry Harrison are excellent (kind of a cross between Geoff Tate and David Coverdale) and the musicianship and songwriting are every bit as good as before. I rated it 4 stars because I still prefer the first two albums. It's probably closer to 4 1/2 star or so. Excellent gem from the '80s

Lost classic - reissued March 28 2008
By Justin G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
One of the most unfairly overlooked bands of the 1980's rock & metal scene, Icon had a heavy yet melodic hard rock sound on par with bands like Pretty Maids, Y&T, TNT, Dokken, Leatherwolf and King Kobra. They released a string of must-have albums in the second half of the 1980's, including 1989's Right Between the Eyes.

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.

A true collectors item April 25 2003
By Robert R. Carron - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Well as for the price the music justifies the cost it is a very rare cd with every track running the gauntlet of hard rock and coming out victorious! these boys knew what it took to make some kickass tunes and I would buy it again .

Another great Aug. 10 2006
By Scott A. Pickett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Right between The Eyes,Icons last chance offering,came on the heels of 1987's EXTREMELY RARE (possibly only 3500 released) An Even more perfect Union. This is the first cd with Jerry Harrison at the vocals and has a somewhat heavier edge than any of their 3 previous offerings.My personal favorites are the title track,2 for the road,double life,and forever young.There really is not a bad song on this record,as it is in the same tradition of this band's additional releases.If you are interested in Icon,you can contact me at [...].

Icon's 4th and Last!Good foward metal! Feb. 19 2005
By Bass player Brad - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In 1989 Icon made their last album.Though this is not their best(Icon[self titled],Night of the Crime), it still rocks.For this album they also got a new singer and 1 new guitarist.The singer here is not as good as the last one, but does a decent job.Their sound really changed previous to their last 3 albums.

1.Right between the Eyes(10/10)A great rocker,Good guitar work, vocalist fits very well!

2.Two for the Road(6/10)Not a bad song, but somethings wrong I just can't figure what!

3.Taking my breath away(7/10)decent song, nothing special.Nice guitar riffs.

4.A Far Cry(8/10)A great Track.Guitar licks are cool and lyrics fit nicely here.

5.In your Eyes(8/10)Another solid track,a bit slower than the others but sounds great!Nice melodic work!

6.Holy Man's War(10/10)Killer song!The guitars run wild on this one,solos, riffs, it's all here on this one.Alice Cooper does a special guest vocal appearence in the middle of this song for a few verses!Best Track on this album.

7.Bad Times(5/10)Pretty crappy this sng is.

8.Double Life(7/10)Back up to par.Good solid song!

9.Forever Young(7/10)Ballad song off this cd.Better than any of today's music!

10.Running Under Fire(8/10)Cool song,Love the guitar riffs.Nice Work!

11.Peace and Love(8/10)Instrumental closing track to this cd.1 minute 18 seconds long.

If you want a good 80's metal.This one is a decent start,no the best,but not bad.Fans of ICON WILL LIKE MORE THAN THE CASUAL LISTENER!

If you love the 80's metal scene pick this up.Don't pay over 22 dollars for it though!

A nail in the coffin for Icon and classic metal in general Dec 5 2011
By J. Tweeter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
OK - the reason I feel so strongly repulsed by this album is because I thought Night Of The Crime was (and still is) one of the greatest moments in melodic hard rock - period. Jerry Harrison embodies everything that went wrong with this genre and hence its demise in the 90s. All the cock rock cliches are so in your face and the lyrics are so insultingly dumb that, well I got it out and tried to listen to it after 20 years, thinking maybe I was being unfair... Nope - couldn't even listen to it all the way through. The intro to the title track gets your hopes up - Dan Wexler's genius shines as he comes in with that beautifully killer tone and thick, complex chords; then the vox kick in and it's like a 15 year old David Coverdale wannabe. AAAGGGHH. SO BUMMED!!! I'm crossing my fingers that they will do a comeback album that does justice to the direction they were headed when everything fell apart for them upon the release of NOTC. Dan Wexler, like Ronni Le Tekro, is a genius with such amazing ideas! I'd compare it to Randy Rhoads being still alive, and we're still waiting for the masterpiece! No, I'm not saying Wexler is the game changer Rhoads was - but the analogy stands. C'mon bro - bring it back! The god-awful sludge of the 90s is long gone and classic metal is back in a huge way. Accept, TNT, Pretty Maids, Coldspell, Vanden Plas, hell even Dokken and Whitesnake are bringing it on! The stage is set...
