I've owned this CD twice already. Lent it to a good friend - never got it back. Time passed, missed it loads. Once you know Evergreen is out there you need it close by. Just in case. My fave tracks are easy 3, 6, 9 & 12 and of course No 4 Evergreen, the title track. People grow older, if they are lucky, and time changes you, mellows you, makes you more reflective, leaves unanswered questions and unsaid thoughts. That's all in this album for me in a style that is Echo & the Bunnymen, or the mellow side at least. There are flashes of energy in 'I Want To Be There (When You Come)'. But there is always the sombre undertone to the album. Most akin to 'Ocean Rain' in terms of sound. Orchestral backing helps to fill out the sound and mood and keeps it fresh and light (Evergreen almost). Quite a contradiction but it works. If anything is missing from the album it's strong percussion. It seems the whole point of the music, eventually they had to move on without the late Pete de Freitas. This album makes his absence felt without failing to be great music. I Love it.

Filled to the brim with gem songs, performed and recorded brilliantly. A great comeback record. The Songs capturing and displaying both sadness and happiness in one cohesively good piece of songwriting

Following a 10 year split after the accidental tragic death of their drummer, frontman Ian McCulloch, guitarist Will Sargeant and bass player Les Pattinson got together to rekindle a magic that was buried at it's peak.

Unfortunately after this album Les quit for the lure of boat love, and so Echo & The Bunnymen today is only Will and Ian, with guests.

Atleast then when the band was as complete as it could be, they didn't dissapoint. They picked up from where they left off, but still sounded good enough to compete with the likes of the then publicly loved The Verve, and others. Although because the lads are older men now, their sound has gotten more maturer, and hence slighltly mellow, but their songwriting is as strong as always.

Gems like opener 'Don't Let It Get You Down' instantly remind you of the Bunnymen signature, and feels like rediscovering why you fall in love. It was also a very positive sounding song in times when British-guitar-band-depression reached cheesy status. 'In My Time' features more sublimeness and tranquility accompanied by strings by the London Metropolitan Orchestra. Also the drummer for this album is the well-praised sticksman for the modern reformed Led Zepellin.

'I Want To Be There (When You Come)' reminds us of the familiar old-time swagger of the band, and is a brilliant and catchy song. After this is 'Evergreen' which is a kind of sombre moment, yet still a positive and grandieur moment which probably is quite a good track to choose possibly as the title to represent the album; and this is an evergreen album!

This is simply music at is best. Melodies that enthrall and a maturity that can only come from those that wrote Porcupine. Devine.

This album is seriously underrrated.Listened to in retrospect it comes across as one of the best albums of the nineties.Its flawed perhaps by knowledge of what came threafter-the excellent but publically ignored What are you going to do.. and the cheap'n'cheerful Flowers which was a pale imitation of past glories with very poor lyrics on most songs. On Evergreen by contrast everything comes together very nicely-Will Sergeant and Les Pattinson,the latter then still a bass player with the band, contribute thoughtful, melodic lines (some of Will's best work is here) and Mac's lyrics are amongst his best. Its not a moody album in the main, which probably put off a lot of die-hard fans, but listen to the jangle guitar of 'In My Time' or the scuzzy freak-out of 'Altamont' and you can easily see why many at the time fell in love with the Bunnies all over again.

After listening to the early Echo and the Bunnymen (again) I thought I would try this. I had actually *tried* to listen to it when it first came out but what I heard I had found dull and hadn't really bothered with it anymore. Anyway empowered by really enjoying their early albums again (the re-releases with extra tracks) I decided to give this another go and I have actually found it pretty good. I think the difficulty with it is that it isn't the early sound, it had less edge and menace, so it can be difficult to listen to in that context, but if you are able to take it on its own terms it is a different sound, more layered perhaps, less immediate, but worth experiencing.

Having only been a cursory fan in the eighties with the mighty release of Porcupine
I was very pleased to hear echos of past glory along with the maturing of Ian McCulloch's voice and lyrical outlook.
The initial standout track was the splendid Nothing Lasts Forever but on subsequent listens the rest of the album continues to grow. Songs like I'll Fly Tonight, Just A Touch Away, Empire State Halo and Forgiven are among some of the best releases from the band and indeed the nineties.
This album is an excellent way back into the band with such an great back catalogue and new works.
