Night of the Crime is the second album by the heavy metal band Icon. It was far more polished than their self-titled debut and forayed into areas of glam only previously alluded to on their debut. It was produced and engineered by legendary producer, Eddie Kramer. Around 30 songs were demoed for the album, and Eddie Kramer´s version included one more finished track, Hang Tough (later covered by Pretty Maids). Ron Nevison remixed the album and Hang Tough did not make it to the final release. The album has, like the debut, been remastered and re-released several times on CD. "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 Michael Bolton.
