If You Want To Defeat Your Enemy Sing His Song - Expanded Version - Icicle Works (The)

If You Want To Defeat Your Enemy Sing His Song - Expanded Version
he Ian Broudie-produced Defeat Your Enemy brought out the band's varying influences in different ways, resulting in a varied record touching on everything from funk to folk.Unquestionably, the band's knack for big, uplifting but not hollow performances was still in fine flower, as the smash single Understanding Jane showed. A quick, fierce rocker with an instantly catchy pop vibe and a brilliant chorus, it's a '50s tearjerker filtered through the Ramones with fantastic results. Another winner is the opening cut, Evangeline, with a lovely chorus consisting of overdubbed vocals from the band and guest singer Alison Limerick and a quick, Motowntouched rhythm supporting McNabb's powerful singing.Then there's Up Here in the North of England, a slow, string-touched waltz winningly sung while bitterly ripping into the political state of the nation line for line. McNabb's vocals throughout the album are deeper than before,This 3CD reissue of the Classic 1987 album come with two discs of bonus, material as well as notes by Prog magazines Jerry Ewing.
