There are often several very similar Best Ofs available for bands who have been around for a while - especially those who have split up and reformed - though I can't recall coming across many compilations billed as an official update of a previous round up. More Songs To Learn And Sing takes away one song and adds 10 plus the M word to the Bunnymen's original mid-80s best of. But is it a better album?

The answer to this is maybe yes though sadly, possibly no. Although some of the new tracks are excellent, there are also quite a few inessential songs on the updated compilation which, at their worst, remind me melodically and lyrically of Oasis at their most cloying.

Still Oasis are often excellent as are The Bunnymen. Among the highlights of More Songs To Learn And Sing are the thrilling A Promise and The Cutter as well as the epic Killing Moon and Bring On The Dancing Horses. All of these songs combine the commanding vocals of Ian McCulloch with the superb, exciting guitar-work of Will Seargeant, melodic bass of Les Pattinson and powerful drumming of Pete De Freitas.

As fans of Echo And The Bunnymen know, Ian McCulloch never shied away from declaring his band's genius and it is perhaps fitting that the liner notes of More Songs To Learn And Sing feature a pretentious summation of the band's talents by Paul Morley. Over-the-top maybe though somehow apt as, at their best, The Bunnymen made some of the most stunning music of the 80s. Whether or not you think the new compilation is better than the original, every music loving house should have an EATB best of and this CD is a fine place to go for one.

Format: Audio CD
The Bunnymen are probably due a career retrospective beyond the box-set 'Crystal Days' - the original 'Songs to Learn & Sing' ending in 1985 and the 1997-compilation 'Ballyhoo' a bit of a rush to cash in on the Bunnymen's return - album tracks like 'The Disease', 'Over the Wall' & 'All That Jazz' best suited to their source albums. Though this compilation leaves off 'The Puppet', as did 'Ballyhoo' and the reissue of 'Crocodiles'...what's wrong with this song????? Other than 'The Puppet', all of the original 'Songs...' is here and all predictably fantastic: 'Rescue', 'Do It Clean', 'A Promise', 'The Back of Love', 'The Cutter' (later sampled by Ultramarine), 'Never Stop' (rivals Haircut 100 and 'Oblivious' by Aztec Camera), 'The Killing Moon' (as featured in 'Donnie Darko'), 'Silver', the sublime 'Seven Seas' & the charming 'Bring on the Dancing Horses.' It's all perfect stuff and worth buying for this great sequence of classic singles, gripes about the absenc of 'The Pictures on My Wall' apart!!!

The band then had problems - Pete De Freitas going AWOL and their 5th album being a damp squib - though two of the better tracks are here, 'The Game' and 'Lips Like Sugar'('Bedbugs & Ballyhoo' probably should have made it too, as should 'Angels & Devils' and 'Read It In Books'...). The crowd-pleasing element is found with their cover of The Doors' 'People are Strange' which featured in Brat Pack Vamp-B-movie 'The Lost Boys.' Ian McCulloch then jumped ship and Pete De Freitas was tragically killed in an motorycle collision with a car. A version of the Bunnymen carried on with members of St Vitus Dance, but they have now been written out of history.

The dvd extra is very good, but the compilation is very poor only a few tracks of the marvelous early albums. I guess with this price is ok.

Not a duff track on this album.Even the later songs,made when the band were past their best,stand up well alongside the earlier stuff.
As ever,i would always recommend purchasing the original albums,particularly Ocean Rain.But,to be honest,I would settle for this alone.
A great compilation of a band that were always underrated and have ended-up being massively influential.
Buy it.

Echo & the Bunnymen - all the hits are here. This band were pop, rock, goth, punk, all rolled into one tight little sexy bundle. Ah, the memories .... Ian McCulloch was a mere moody sex god then (before the drugs, R&R Lifestyle, Booze laid waste to that darling face!). And of course, the Bunnymen - the sound of this band was so recogniseably individually them. Miss you all.

Does the world need another Echo & The Bunnymen compilation? I mean, really? For a band whose reputation stands and falls with four albums (and a couple of additional singles) released from 1980 to 1984, and who released very few b-sides which weren't re-arrangements or working versions of album tracks, the compilation market is a claustrophobic one - the original (and still best) Songs to Learn and Sing, Bedbugs and Ballyhoo, the cheap Seven Seas of last year, Live in Liverpool (which is well worth a listen and does manage to integrate the old and new material) and the four disc warts-and-all Crystal Days.

With all this, it's difficut to find a non-financial rationale for this release. It is not a comprehensive collection of all the singles (Pictures on My Wall, the Puppet, Silver and anything from the Shine So Hard ep are absent, to say nothing of the McCulloch-less group in the early 1990s) and one song is not a single. The non-chronological tracklisting is perverse and the songs do not sit well with one another. If the point is to paint the post-reform output in the same light as the classic early work it fails. The reliance upon singles means we get three tracks from the fine Evergreen and only one from the fantastic Heaven Up Here and excludes such works of genius as Over the Wall. Again, if the point is to show consistency of output over 25 years, why have a photo of the original quartet of McCulloch, Sergeant, Pattison and de Freitas on the cover? All this does is demean the current lineup.

I can't see who will buy this (without the dvd which does have some classic videos on it). Save for Hang on to a Dream, there is nothing which Bunnymen afficionados will not have already. For those not yet familiar with this group, purchase the excellently-packaged and re-mastered original albums Ocean Rain, Heaven Up Here, Crocodiles and Porcupine (in that order) and enjoy.
