This 11-song collection contains some of their greatest hits including 'Rescue', 'Do It Clean', and 'The Killing Moon.'

A Collection of Songs from the Other Brilliant Band from Liv
G. Merritt | Boulder, CO | 03/26/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a benchmark collection of British progressive-post-punk rock. Whenever I hear a song by other truly great bands like U2, The Smiths, Joy Division, The Cure, and Pavement, I always think of this influential Liverpool alternative band, Echo & the Bunnymen (consisting of Ian McCulloch, guitars; Will Sergeant, bass; Les Pattinson, guitars; and Pete de Freitas, drums), whose 1978 to 1988 original sound clearly influenced these other bands. While (in my opinion) Ocean Rain is the band's best release, Songs to Learn & Sing is a 1985 compilation album featuring all of the band's singles, which reveal the band's trademark sound. Songs include:

1. Rescue 4:18
2. The Puppet 3:04
3. Do It Clean 2:44
4. A Promise 3:40
5. Back Of Love 3:12
6. The Cutter 3:54
7. Never Stop 3:31
8. The Killing Moon 5:46
9. Silver 3:19
10. Seven Seas 3:18
11. Bring On The Dancing Horses

The Good Stuff from The 80's
Steven Swan | Illinois | 11/04/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"To me this is the good stuff from the 80's, not the stuff you would hear on the radio day after day on hit radio, not the weekend special 80's programming that plays that one song by the top 40 bands of the 80's...this is the real 80's that we missed due to being young and impressionable, and oversaturated with contemporary pop and alternative music of the day. I do remember a show called 120 Minutes (on Mtv) that might have played this very late at night though, and it was the most intriguing interesting music for many people they would hear, and it came in such small doses, it was like just a small portion when we were starving for something substantial.

I admit to being a big Duranny back in the day, and even today, and did have my favorite new wave songs and top 40 songs, but to me just as important was the cutting edge of the 80's scene in all genre's of music, today more than ever it is quite clear as to what won out, in the long run you have to look around for the really good stuff, you would have to go to a cutting edge club somewhere, or a friends house back in the day, purchase at an out of the way record store if you were to hear such classic music from an exciting time."
