TODAY’S YESTERDAY ALBUM – ‘What Are You Going To Do With Your Life?’ – Eight LP By ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN…

Remarkable albums from the past…

‘What Are You Going To Do With Your Life?’ by ECHO & THE BUNNYMEN
Released: 16 April 1999 – Eight Bunnymen longplayer

ALL MUSIC wrote: “Echo & the Bunnymen made a dignified return in 1997 with ‘Evergreen’,
but that record displayed some hints of rustiness and a desire to stay hip – two things notably absent from its superb sequel, ‘What Are You Going to Do With Your Life?’ Trimmed to just the duo of Ian McCulloch and Will Sergeant, Echo has succeeded where many of their peers have failed – they have matured without getting stodgy, they have deepened their signature sound without appearing self-conscious.”

Score: 4/5 – Full review here

TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: A melancholic diamond. An underrated masterwork
from start to finish. Great album title. Great cover. Great musings. Sergeant & McCulloch are genuine legends. Hail hail!

Ian McCulloch: “I’m the second best singer ever, after Frank Sinatra”…

echo

Ian Stephen McCulloch was born May 5, 1959 in Liverpool. Happy 56!
As a massive fan of Echo & The Bunnymen (saw them live about 25 times. Well, simply because they were/are just one of the best live bands ever) and Ian McCulloch as their magical singer/songwriter, charismatic personality, big-mouthed star and passionate performer with a superb voice, I want to hear at least these two following songs (and
the first 5 Echo albums) today…

‘Lift Me Up’ from his hardly promoted solo LP
“Pro Patria Mori” (2012). A magnificent song

‘Rescue’ from the Bunnymen’s debut LP ‘Crocodiles’ (1980). 
Timeless classic. “Is This The Blues I’m Singing…”
