Ian McCulloch s second solo album Mysterio was issued in March 1992, three years after his first. Three producers are credited: Mark Saunders (Erasure and The Cure), Henry Priestman, formerly of The Christians, and the Cocteau Twins Robin Guthrie (who is joined by Elizabeth Frazer and Roddy Frame on Heaven s Gate ).

This release features eighteen bonus tracks, including all the non-album tracks from the associated singles and a further six rarities. Return To Sender was originally issued on the NME cassette The Last Temptation Of Elvis , History Chimes , Honey Drip [early version], and On One are all previously unreleased, while the closing two songs were originally released on the tribute album I m Your Fan: The Songs Of Leonard Cohen and its companion sampler in 1991.

5.0 out of 5 stars return of the mac 9 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD
i previously only owned a cassette copy of mysterio and the vinyl edition of candleland so the collectors reissue of these records is for me a splendid release.I have been listening to macs cover versions of songs on youtube and am delighted to find the majority of those recordings on these records.Am a bit of an echo and the bunnymen fan and i was really sad when they broke up prior to reforming and then releasing the super evergreen album so it was good to see mac in the studio and live shows in between the fall out years.Both ian mcculloch and will sergeant release unique and sometimes even a few masterpieces when doing there own thing but the chemistry when the pair write and record together is the best stuff for sure.It seems to recharge the bunnymens batteries.You cant never accuse echo and the bunnymen of resting on there laurels or sitting out the twilight years in the shade.The most recent 'The fountain is my fav bunnymen record to date.'Slideling & pro patria mori i prefer but i like these 2

5.0 out of 5 stars Mysterio....it's a mystery why I found this in a bargain bin 25 Oct 2003
By Chris - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Just pulled this one out of the stack tonight and it still sounds fresh to me.
Of course I was looking for just a crumb of that Echo sound... and for me, Mysterio delivered much of what I liked with E and the Bunnymen. McCulloch's voice still rips chills down to the gut and back up the spine. These 11 tracks have a great range of sound and rhythms.
'Damnation' , 'Honeydrip' and 'Dug for Love' are 3 of my favorites.
Clearly this one never caught on .... can't even show an image for the CD up top, but if you find this in a bargain bin like I did 10 years ago.....BUY IT!!!!

Well worth owning but spotty. Love the opening cut, would sit well on any ECHO album. You gotta love him :-)
3.0 out of 5 stars a rocking follow up to Candleland 19 Nov 2005
By J. Holmes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
to compare this cd to Candleland is kind of unfair, i think, because they both represent two different sides of Ian McCulloch's songwriting. while Candleland was more of a winter kind of album...Mysterio is a summer time record. big guitars and brash choruses with a street rock appeal. most of these songs are pretty good and some are great. "Honeydrip" and "Damnation" are the most fun songs on this album and showcase some of McCulloch's better lyric writing skills. also, worth mentioning is the keen cover design. i dig the argyle three-tone layout. very nice.

2.0 out of 5 stars Shop only from the bargain bin! 30 Mar 2004
By Frankland S. Strickland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've recently read a review where the reviewer compared "Candleland" to winter and "Mysterio" to summer. I couldn't put it better myself! Problem is, though, McCulloch must be more creative in the winter than in the summer. Perhaps if "Mysterio" hadn't followed the lush, ethereal, masterpiece "Candleland," then I might have taken to it better.

One of the few highlights from "Mysterio" is the cover of Leonard Cohen's "Lover, Lover, Lover." The opening track, "Magical World," also has a satisfying ring to it; in fact, it's one of only a few that features the trademark Bunnymen sound. Most listeners may also find "Honeydrip" or "In My Head" to their liking as well, but these aren't sizzlers---only mild satisfiers. One track, "Webbed," seems faintly as though it could be an outtake or B-side from "Ocean Rain." For this reason alone, it is another of the album's few standout tracks. I'd also like to mention "Pomegranate," although I can't decide whether I like it or not. It's probably the most creative on the album to say the least. I really dig the chorus, but the rest of the song almost sounds as if Ian were fronting The Smiths (but maybe that would be a good thing). Then, to confuse matters even more, the song slowly fades out with a guitar that conjures up the introduction to The Doors' "The End."
To sum it all up, "Mysterio" features three or four solid cuts and the rest. . .well, let's just compare them to B-sides shall we? To pay full price for this CD would be a pity, but I've seen it here for as little as 50 cents. Add in a few dollars for shipping and you've got a pretty good deal, but be ready to do a lot of track skipping!
