TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – Self-Titled Longplayer – ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN…

Top-notch longplayers from the past

‘Echo & The Bunnymen’
ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN

Released: 8 July 1987
Fifth album

ALL MUSIC wrote: “This self-titled LP caught the group at a fortuitous career juncture; the clutch of songs here were among the hookiest and most memorable the band would ever write, while the arrangements are noticeably clean and punchy, mostly eliminating strings and similar clutter to focus almost exclusively on guitars, keyboards, drums, and occasional percussion touches. Surprisingly, vocalist Ian MuCulloch appeared to have rediscovered the maxim “less is more”; his singing was comparatively restrained and tasteful, resulting in a more natural, unforced emotiveness that was extremely effective. The production values were excellent, with many subtle touches that do not detract from the album’s overall directness. In short, doing it clean really paid off here.”
