The Icicle Works' self-titled debut as a whole is an excellent example of post-punk power and beauty.

I put this album on the shelf immediately after hearing it, dismissing it as just another forgettable 80's band with one or two decent songs. Well, here it is almost 10 years later, I happened to look at the CD again the other day and decided maybe I was in a different frame of mind now, more mature and refined in my musical tastes, and that I should give it another go. Well,listening to it again just solidified what I already knew the first time I heard it long ago. It still pretty much sucks
