What we have here is either the heaviest novelty record ever made, the goofiest psych album ever made, or both. Icarus hailed from the UK and released a few forgettable singles before recording their only LP, The Marvel World of Icarus, a conceptual album based on the Marvel Comics universe. Imagine if Three Dog Night or Blood Sweat & Tears sang about The Fantastic Four and The Hulk rather than world peace and spinning wheels and you get a pretty good idea of what this sounds like. Rumor has it that Stan Lee never gave permission to Icarus and the record was subjected to a cease and desist, so all existing copies were destroyed, making it a record collector's wet dream. These rumors have been neither substantiated nor denied. So if you have been waiting your whole life to hear rather generic psychedelic hard rock with lyrics about superheroes, today is your lucky day. So goofy and ill-conceived, you'd have to be pretty fucking square, or one of those tight-assed DC comics fans not to enjoy this.
