#463: Heaven Up Here by Echo & the Bunnymen

1.27.2011


Heaven Up Here by Echo & the Bunnymen (1981)

Favorite Track(s): "I Promise" and "All My Colours" and "Turquoise Days"

Thoughts: I was about to get a little crazy, internet, when I saw this band was next on this list. For the usual reason: I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF THEM. Ergo, how truly awesome can their album be, since it's not even widely known? But I'm not going to go crazy, internet, because then I learned they are British, which covers a multitude of sins. It also makes it more understandable as to why I have never heard of them, but clearly the hoards of British musicians, critics, and producers who voted on this list have. Also, I like British stuff, so I'm going to allow it.

Ah, post-punk, we meet again. Sometimes this album reminded me of The Smiths, the Cure, The Doors, and U2. Which you'd think meant I liked it a lot. But instead it made me want to listen to those bands instead. Oh, well!
