A masterpiece
PSM/Bokor | United States | 02/22/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"First and foremost, I'm familiar with a lot of the Bunnymen's music; however, this is the only CD of theirs I will own. The rest of their music is bland, for my tastes. With that said, this is a great CD.

There is a mood that is haunting; it's engaging. The songs have energy in a subdued way, and the lyrics are powerful. I dare say that this is a "must have" CD for any collector of rock/punk music.

Even though there is not one mediocre song on this CD, I absolutely recommend "Over the Wall" and "The Disease."

These musicians have created a virtually unrivaled collection of songs in "Heaven Up Here.""

"This is, in my opinion, pretty much what U2 were trying to sound like on their first two albums, before they upped their game. They didn't manage it: Bono was too pompous and couldn't really sing, the rhythm section was sloppy and Edge didn't have Will Sergeant's finesse. Interestingly enough, Simple Minds were trying to ape U2 at around the same time - the less said about them the better.
On to the album itself. I've got Show of Strength blasting out of my computer speakers at the moments. It sounds as fresh as the day it was made. Will Sergeant's guitar is simultaneously hooky and melancholy, a difficult thing to pull off, Les Pattinson and Pete De Freitas make the whole thing funkily danceable and McCulloch's voice reverberates above the mix in a strangely disembodied manner. I was -3 years old when this came out, so I can only imagine what the tour for this album must have been like. Probably quite intense. I wish I'd been there. I don't really have any favourite songs, but there are standout moments on the record: the ARP Odyssey chiming out in Over the Wall, the suddenly hushed atmosphere ushering in The Disease and the Closer-era Joy Division-esque rhythmic damped guitar on Turquoise Days being just a few. If you don't have this album, buy it. Then get Crocodiles, Porcupine and Ocean Rain. These four albums, all of which have their adherents, are the Bunnymen classics. You won't regret it."
