5.0 out of 5 stars Musical Elegance, 29 Sep 2009
This review is from: Porcupine (Expanded & Remastered) (Audio CD)
Ian McCulloch's tendency to christen everything that Echo And The Bunnymen released as "The Greatest Album Ever By The Greatest Band Ever" is the sign of a man with supreme confidence in his own ability or a masochist begging for a beating.

Porcupine is the album where the Bunnymen finally got around to defining their style and sound - For all McCulloch's prior braggadocio there is something much more confident and assured here. There is something of the Middle East about the music, conjuring up visions of crowded souqs and bazaars.

After "My White Devil", "Clay", "Porcupine" and "Heads Will Roll" the album trails off slightly, but not to any major detrimental effect.

Echo And The Bunnymen may be something of an acquired taste but, once acquired, that taste is very addictive
