In Paradise Lost we, once again, observe just what is possible when singer stops being afraid of hearing themselves sing (or band being afraid of hearing their singer sing).
Rule #1: If you can't sing, learn how. Likewise if you can't play an instrument, learn how.
Rule #2: If you can't be bothered, then just get a day job and leave music creation to folks who will endure the excruciating four week period or so that it takes to learn to sing and play an instrument.
Icon also proves that in music too, and in music particularly, I must stress, less is more.
This is exactly why hardly anyone listens to progressive rock music. It's just too f*cking convoluted for its own good.
Let me put it this way: if you can't image a 40-year-old trucker guy being able to sing along your songs, don't bloody make 'em!
Last I heard Paradise Lost was desperately imitating Depeche Mode or something along those lines. Now, they're probably making disco. Or grind metal. Or jingles. I couldn't care less.
I have my Icon and it's good enough for me.
