A great collection of songs by one of the eighties' finest bands. I could listen to Rescue, The Killing Moon and Bring on the Dancing Horses any day and every day and never grow tired of them. However, I'm sorry to see The Puppet is missing from this best of. I only have it on an old tape of Songs to Learn and Sing to remind me of its greatness. And why isn't it on the remastered and expanded version of Crocodiles either? Is there a conspiracy against that wonderful song I don't know about, or what? If I want it on CD do I really have to shell out 40 quid to get it on the Crystal Days box set? Are fans like me being made to feel like puppets being manipulated? Twas ever so, I suppose.

The second Best of...album released by The Bunnymen and easily the better. The 1985 release, Songs To Learn & Sing, was a greatest hits package, Ballyhoo is far more. Not only are the singles there, but much more besides, giving you a truly wider picture as to the Bunnies brilliance.
The opener, 'Rescue' is a personal favourite and is still played at concerts today. Hard to believe it is over 20 years old. The second track 'Do It Clean' was actually a B'side to the 1980 single 'The Puppet' showing how strong the Bunnies material was. 'Villiers Terrace', although a great song, is I believe represented here purely on the strength of it at Live Shows, it is always one of the first to be requested and seldom refused.
the next 4 tracks, all come from The Bunnymen`s second and equally impressive album 'Heaven Up Here' (1981). Tracks 4 and 5 are gold dust, again concert favourites. 'A Promise' is pure Bunnymen and also a single. 'The Disease', a odd selection given that it acts as an intro to the proceeding track on the 'Heaven Up Here' album. Having said that, despite being just over 2 minutes long, it remains a classic.
Tracks 8 and 9 are 2 of the most successful and popular Bunnymen tracks of all time. Both singles from 82 and 83, they deserve their place in Bunnydom. 'The Cutter' being my personal favourite song off ALL TIME.
'Never Stop' marked possibly the Bunnymen`s most popiest record to date, without I may add effecting it`s quality.
Tracks 11-13, also very CHART typical, but classics by anyones standards, come from the 1984 album 'Ocean Rain'; once described as the best album ever released. 'The Killing Moon' is probably one of the best ballads ever written.

Completely out of fashion today of course but you just cannot put down a band with so many classic singles, I am sure like their influences the doors and the velvets they will rise again. Not realy a bad single on the whole cd and most bands would be proud with around half the hits: today they would certainly be huge and not reduced to mid placings at festivals. How have they sunk so low: bad lps since the reformation certainly but still on the basis of rescue, bring on the dancing horses, the cutter, and so forth. Great music and well worth the price, should not be long now before you are all rediscovered and you can go back to being aloof Ian!

I used to be well into EATB and their ilk back in the 80's, but in general most of this long overcoat music now sounds a bit dated. 'Crocodiles' still sounds pretty snappy and fresh but the other three albums from the early period havent worn quite so well.However, 'Ballyhoo' comprises all the strongest tracks from across the first 4 albums plus singles that never made it onto LPs. Highlights for me are 'Over the wall', 'All that Jazz', 'Never stop','Silver', 'Back of love' and 'Bedbugs and ballyhoo'. Strong stuff all the way through. For non-diehard fans, this is the best place to start.

While ever they still write and record, there will never be a definitive 'best of' collection. And, as I have said elsewhere on Amazon, best ofs and greatest hits will never satisfy the true fans of any given band. Let's enjoy the offerings while we can, and for those of us who've been at the beginning of a band's recording history, rejoice that the record companies, no matter what their agendas might be, are spreading the word and keeping the band alive. Amen.

Somehow I never really appreciated Echo and the Bunnymen 'in era', although I was aware of them.

This album presents a good selection of their best known tracks and, in hindsight, makes me feel I missed out.

Well worth a listen if you didn't get into them at the time or simply if you've worn out all your old CDs or LPs!

I got this album on the strength of one song 'The killing moon'.And it has not left my cd player since.It is one of the most consistant albums i own.And no doubt i will be looking at getting all their albums.
