"I think I played this album 3x/day for 20 years. Okay, maybe for 15. It is pure energy. The way Talking Heads is energy but there's something more mystical about Echo's "Heaven Up Here" than any other rock album that I've found on earth. Something more philosophical and self-motivating as well. It becomes your album. As if you created it. And now you must act beacuse of it. The Cure get there in creating nostalgia and have some similar drums at times but are not as driving. Listening to "Heaven Up Here" is like taking a shot of oxygen (or vodka) and then letting a slightly jaded consciousness of the universe explode in your brain while the guitar riffs rip your spine out and the drums take you back in time, tribal-style. There are also more dark moments on the album as well as some strange, open sky, dreamscape moments which along with the mesmerizing lyrics may seep into your unconscious. Ian McCulloch's voice is ominous and there's something god-like and ancient about it that makes you want to believe him. Warning: Don't buy this album unless you want your consciousness and energy level to change. In the end, if you listen to it enough you may begin to realize that all you want is all you want."
