iTunes Editors’ Notes

One major U.K. music magazine called this 1997 Echo & The Bunnymen album the greatest comeback of all time, which is hardly hyperbole if you’re even the slightest Bunnymen fan. (The band had reformed minus original drummer Pete de Freitas, who had died in a motorcycle accident.) The majestic, tone-setting opener “Don’t Let It Get You Down” is as musically inescapable as it is lyrical, a soaring call to arms based on the hard-won wisdom of a band that had seen the best and worst of pop stardom. Singer Ian McCulloch and guitarist Will Sergeant might as well be twins, because each has the ability to make any lyric or chord change sound profound. Theirs is a chemistry that’s impossible to fake; sometimes when it adds more soul than is called for on a lyric, it’s hard to tell irony (“Baseball Bill”) from truth (“I’ll Fly Tonight,” or the Doorsy “Empire State Halo”). But when they go for the beauty (as an “Nothing Lasts Forever” or the heartsick finale “Forgiven”), there’s no mistaking the power. The highs and lows are that profound.

Customer Reviews

Amazing

Evergreen is definately in Echo's top five albums. When listening to it, I totally forgot about the loss of Pete de Freitas. From start to finish, Evergreen is totally amazing. Excellent guitar on pretty much every song and the live older Bunnymen songs are excellent, too. My personal favorites on the album are "Don't Let It Get You Down", "In My Time", "I Want to Be There", "Evergreen", "I'll Fly Tonight"...forget it, just buy all of them.

Dark City.

Introduced to the haunting "Just a Touch Away" in the film Dark City. Depressed the crap out of my family by playing it over and over.... my sister would visibly cringe when I'd put this one... So, of course, I loved it. I think this is one of the tragically overlooked adult rock albums of the 90's. Absolutely georgeous.

Bring Back The Classics...

Believe it or not, I heard this band on an old television show known as "Daria." I heard this song playing in one of the seqences, and I found it very catchy. So I looked up the music on an online website for the show, and it had a listing of the music used during that episode. So I looked up the band and I came to realize that they were pretty awesome. But the question is, why are they so underground?

Echo & the Bunnymen's dark, swirling fusion of gloomy post-punk and Doors-inspired psychedelia brought the group a handful of British hits in the early '80s, while attracting a cult following in the United States. The Bunnymen grew out of the Crucial Three, a late-'70s trio featuring vocalist Ian McCulloch, Pete Wylie, and Julian Cope. Cope and Wylie left the group by the end of 1977, forming the Teardrop Explodes and Wah!, respectively. McCulloch met guitarist Will Sergeant in the summer of...
