Review of Night of the Crime

In 1985, ICON's masterpiece "Night of the Crime" was released, produced by Eddie Kramer and mixed by Ron Nevison. Most of the songs are credited to Bob Halligan Jr., the famous songwriter, who worked for Judas Priest, Kiss, Cher, Helix and B.O.C. among the others. Opening song "Naked Eyes" with Aquilino's guitar sinth riff quickly became an hair metal classic. But, unusually, Capitol wanted "Danger Calling" as first single, leaving anthemic "Rock My Radio", "Raise The Hammer" and my personal favorites "Whites of Their Eyes" and "Naked Eyes" as b sides with lesser airplay.
When the promotional tour of "Night Of The Crime" started, singer Stephen Clifford decided to leave the band for unknow reasons. Capitol contract rescinded in 1986.
2017 EDIT :

"Night of the Crime" was voted 3rd best AOR album of all time by Kerrang! magazine readers, behind multimillion selling classic albums by Journey and Foreigners.
