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 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...

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 .

GOOD BUT NOT ESSENTIAL July 21 2005
By JOHN L. KOWAL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is their 3rd album, not 4th. The 4th album was released in ARIZONA by the band only and maybe extremely hard to find.

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.

AOR/Melodic Metal Classic!! July 26 2005
By Stuart M. Tysinger - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Icon did what King Kobra did and changed their sound around 1986. But Icon in my opinion did it better. Then came Right Between the Eyes which is in my opinion Icon's best cd. This was the time King Kobra came out with III. But believe me this cd blows King Kobra III away. It has awesome songs, great guitar work & the singers vocals are amazing. If you can find this cd, get it!!!
