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!
