iTunes Review

At this late point in their career, Echo & The Bunnymen don’t innovate, but refine. The Fountain is the band’s fifth studio album since their reformation. None of their reunited efforts has matched the exploration and excitement of their ‘80’s work, but The Fountain has its moments of charm that any loving fan will surely welcome. Singer Ian McCulloch fits the bill of swooning Britpop singer. He might not have Morrissey’s fearless sense of adventure, but he’s got a toughness and bravado that gives the spacey shimmer of “Everlasting Neverendless” a firm grip on the ground. “Proxy” takes a ‘60s pop tune and filters it through the production advances of the decades, adding an extra layer of distortion and a wall of sound that can’t be broken into separate pieces. “Think I Need It Too” uses a melodic bass to drive its point home. For a ballad, “The Idolness of Gods” sways with ballroom glitz. Echo & The Bunnymen once set the standards. Now they must scratch and claw to maintain them.

Excuse me bad reviewers?? ..I know it's not Ocean Rain,...but fook!! This is a great record for a band that could have grand kids, they out do a lot of young chaps.

Awesome! (As Usual!)

Any Echo & The Bunnymen fan is not going to be disappointed with this latest & greatest! I am totally thrilled that smart bands like EATB still put out great albums after almost 30 years! Get it!

I cried on "Think I need it Too"! It's that good!

I'm now listening for the 8th time today, and it feels SO GOOD to crank Echo as loud as it will play. I have everything these guys have ever released, and dare I say that this is my favorite so far? OMG I love it. </gush>

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 1978...
