I think this is a really good album - and I honestly wasn't expecting to like it much.

I liked Ian McCulloch and Echo & The Bunnymen a lot in the days when I was glad to see his face among them, kissing the tortoise shell, but that was 30 years ago. I confess that I have rather lost track of them since then and the idea of a cathartic album from him about depression and other problems didn't appeal much after all this time. I was completely wrong. This is classic McCulloch, I think - thoughtful, allusive and musically very appealing. Every song here is beautifully crafted and many have a very singable tune, The Bunnymen still sound great, the production is ear-filling in a very satisfying way and even without the lyrics this would be very good, I think.

Lyrically, McCulloch hasn't lost any of his genius for somehow getting to the heart of things even when he seems to be talking rather weird nonsense. He's stabbing a sorry heart here, and no mistake, but it's done with humanity and sometimes wit so that it never gets miserable or depressing, and there are some positively anthemic moments ("Holy Moses..." for example) which have a triumphant feel even through the melancholy and despair.

I make no pretence at being an Ian McCulloch aficionado, so others may well have more insightful comparisons to make with his other work. For me, though, this is an intelligent, humane and thoroughly listenable album of ten fine songs, starting with the line "Hope? Where is the hope in me?" and culminating in the rather uplifting, redemptive New Horizons, without a duff track among them. It's genuinely a very good album from a fine, original songwriter and performer. It's one of my albums of the year so far and I think I'll be playing it for years to come.

Space Rocks!ECHO AND THE BUNNYMEN's Meteorites, is not an iron nickel from Planet X,but an amalgam of ECHO's ages so timeless and beloved.
This legendary psychedelic act has created a new explosive journey of emotion and mystical expression(included Youth),a fine art sounds of jumbled juxtapositions into a cohesive whole as in the infinite cosmos. Erosion and melancholy feelings as poetic lyrics . Ian is the master of his own galaxy and this sonic sphere could have been recorded together with Will and Les,an opus of their comeback,for sure, if the three were together again and as the band we knew.Sergeant was in late days of the recording so Meteorites could have been another solo recording from McCulloch,too! His is the song of the bunnymen land between heaven,ocean rain and killing moons.
New classics for your ears's digest from Meteorites: Lovers On The Run,Market Town,Holy Moses....withthe voice of the infinite echoes.I Wanna BeThere(When You Perform in Peru),and with your evergreen songs.Just buy it!

Hi. Been a Bunnymen fan from 1978 and regard them as one of the greatest and most influential bands ever. I was so disappointed with their last album, (The Fountain) that I was afraid to buy this in case my worst fears were realised and that this album may have proven to be the final nail in the coffin. Not so. This album is a definite grower. Each song is unique and realises the essence of the Bunnymen that I have loved for so long. The eastern type guitar is there in all its glory. Mac's voice is outstanding. One or two songs I found a little weak lyrically but this is well concealed behind the wonderful Bunnymen music and as I said, Ian's voice has never been better. In my opinion he is one of the best singers I have ever heard. His voice can actually bring a tear to my eye. I read an earlier review that slammed this album and the " Siberia" album . Siberia is pretty decent too, in my opinion. I would ask the reviewer to put it on in the background a few times... Let it grow.

Meteorites is an excellent Echo & the Bunnymen album, up there with my own two personal favourites - Porcupine and Ocean Rain. The album is strong all the way through. Constantinople is a great track that would not be out of place on either album. The track Meteorites is an atmospheric opener. Will Sergeant is one of the most underrated and innovative guitarists and the band are in my opinion the best and most original British indie band and their new album is a return to form.

As one reviewer has already stated, with ace producer/Killing Jokester 'Youth' at the production console, I expected a lot more from the band after the disappointing 'Fountain' a fews year back. Things have not progressed since then and although the McCullough/Segeant core remains, this can't really be called a true Bunnymen album.

There is real potential in many of the songs here, but none of them quite 'do it' and after a number hearings, this does not have 'grower' status I'm afraid. I really did try to love this album, but alas I do not even really like it that much. EATB are, frustratingly, becoming increasingly 'samey' with successive releases and sound like a unit fast running out of ideas. This is such a shame as they are without doubt one of my favourite bands of the last 35 years with a stunningly varied back catalaogue of top-notch material, but their much-maligned eponymous 1987 album was vastly superior to this, which says it all really.

With the exception of this album's predecessor (The Fountain) and 1999's What Are You Going To Do With Your Life ?, I can gladly revisit any Bunnymen album, but alas Meteorites falls into the 'I probably won't listen to this again' category. Meteorites is the sound of a band audiably winding-down but I hope, not, bowing out.
