Dark and moody. You know exactly what you're getting everytime. Will Sargeant's guitar break on "No Dark Things" sounds like he's dragging knitting needles through the strings. "The Disease" -social comment to live your life by. "Over the Wall" - climactic, urgent and full of spirits from the other world. "Crocodiles" by the Bunneymen is also pretty subversive but this one just gets the edge.Unlike any other album just because they got it soooo right. The bonus tracks are a big plus too - 'Broke my neck' is on no other album (I believe)as it was the B side of "The Promise" but a great inclusion.

This is it, folks...the Bunnymen's (very possibly) greatest album!! The band's incredible strengths shine through from tracks one to eleven on this second offering. The dark undertones are accentuated by Ian McCulloch's howling vocal presence.... The bounce and shine of "With A Hip", the glourious "A Promise", and the desolate "All I Want" are all prime examples of Bunnymen power and potential. It is strange to me that this is not a major influence upon many Industrial and Gothic bands of our modern day. This album will carry you from heights to depths and back, so grab a stiff one (or two or three!!) and let Ian & co. reveal fear, desperation, hate, love and life! No matter how many times I listen to this Cd it brings chills and emothional breadth with every spin! Necessary and essential for anyone searching for the best music that the 80's produced. Viva Bunnymen!!!!

I have their first four albums and since i discovered them in 1981 i bought this their second effort and i have to say they never reached such heights again.
Sure Porcupine is good and Ocean rain gets all the praise but Heaven Up Here is so deep and overlooked. Songs like Show Of Strength with its breakdowns and Goth guitar textures really set the mood for a sound driven landscape that never lets up.
With A Hip follows in upbeat mode with a really catchy if disturbing chorus and more innovative and distinctive guitars from Will Sargent. Over The Wall is an alternate take of the original that appeared on their Ep Shine So Hard and is more atmospheric but go back and hear the original, its totally spellbinding. Ian's voice also reached its highest peaks and on A Promise he really shows us what an amazing singer he is.
The drum and bass are so driving this fantastic record all the way and you get the impression you are on a roller coaster ride into the dark unknown! And what a journey it is. Side two is even better with the title track kicking in to an almost acidjazz like sway and those guitars doing all the right things swirling around you building layers of textured sounds and riffs.
My Life's The Disease with its dark and disturbed depiction of human suffering really grips you in its brief visit.
All My Colours(Zimbo on Shine So Hard) is accompanied by some nice tribal drums and nice acoustic guitars and is unique in their repertoire.
No Dark Things is an epic piece that captures the essence of this record and is one of the best songs they wrote.
All I Want ends this superb album and another of their best songs ever. Pumping drum and bass urgency and some more innovative guitar work comes to the fore with some great riffs.
A forgotten masterpiece.

Like many Bunnymen fans I rate Heaven Up Here as their best album. I remember listening to it for the first time and being swept away by it. Everything just stood out - the musicianship, the way the songs were crafted, even the cover.

And this remastering is very sympathetic to the original recording that came out all those years back. From my experience, some 'remasters' sound tinny and lack depth. This one doesn't - probably because of the excellent production the first time around. And like most Bunnymen tracks, very little of this sounds dated. Play something from U2, or any of the Bunnymen's contemporaries from this time and the opposite is true.

As other reviewers have said, there are no duff tracks on this album, and along with the track listing it defies any attempts to play tracks out of sequence - the mark of a truly great album.

The inclusion of the spiky and brilliant B-side "Broke My Neck" is a fantastic addition to this remastering, much more so than the live tracks, which give some idea of the live brilliance of the Bunnymen around that time, but sound as if they were messed around with in the studio and have better versions elsewhere.

The new sleeve notes and additional photos are a great introduction to anybody buying this album for the first time, as well as giving some of us oldies a little bit of nostalgia!

If you're in two minds about buying this, just do it. You won't be disappointed!

Finally have a copy of this. Saw the Bunnymen on the tour for this and their date at Daze of Future Past in Leeds too. It sounds very clear, possibly better when turned up to really feel the sound. I listened to it on headphones and it really sounded great - good clear sound and you get the full stereo effect. Lovely extra live tracks, I've had them on a 12'' EP for years and they've always been some of my favourite Bunnymen recordings. I purchased their first lp, remastered, some years back and it's just beautiful. They were so young, yet could manage such mature work.
