Ians first solo album, was very depressing. This was understanding, as his dad had died and Pete de F had been killed. This album is excellent and after my tape deck packed in l went one bay to get a cd. Dont regret the buy.

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!!!!

McCulloch's Underrated Charmer Gets a Proper Re-Release 24 Oct 2014
By A. Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A review in two parts. First the original album, then this two disc deluxe edition re-issue.

Firstly, when reading through reviews of this album all over Amazon and the rest of the web, it's clear that it simply doesn't resonate with people. I politely disagree. I think it's an awesome rollicking romp that stands the test of time and stands up to McCulloch's best work. At the time this came out however, it was bound to be lost and forgotten. Anything that was fun was a "no-no" and melody was certainly a bad thing in the age of Nirvana's "Nevermind" and Pearl Jam's "Ten". You had to be angry. Grunge ruled, and everyone thought great records like this were disposable. Sad, but true. I love everything about "Mysterio". Maybe it's time you gave it another try. A nice surprise is getting to the end of the original album and getting to hear the treat that is "Heaven's Gate", a collaboration between McCulloch and the Cocteau Twins. Every single song on this 11 track album could have been a hit if released at a different time.

Secondly, the reissue. It sounds great, the packaging and liner notes are solid, and disc two contains many gems relegated to obscure b-side or compilation disc status, but so superbly worthy of a listen. A great re-release that was more than worthy of purchase. This is a totally charming album that's worth the time to reinvestigate.
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.
I am not sure why this record gets such bad reviews - even from Ian himself 16 Nov 2014
By Emily J Solimine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I am not sure why this record gets such bad reviews - even from Ian himself. The record is very good and features some great b-sides that later appeared on Bunnymen records. Check out Lost on You from "WAYGTDWYL." A few other melodies later appeared on Bunnymen records that were surely b-sides from this period. My problem with this record is that Lover Lover was the wrong Cohen cover to include on the LP. It should have been Hey That's No Way to Say Goodbye."
