This review is from: Meteorites (Audio CD)
If, like me, you were of the opinion that in terms of "second coming" Bunnymen albums Siberia could not and would never be topped then it's time to think again as Mac and Will deliver a beautiful, triumphant, outstanding piece of work. Put simply this is easily the best new album for years, there is no filler here and every track is fantastic but especially Explosions, Burn It Down, Grapes Upon The Vine, Market Town and Constantinople which could sit easily on Heaven Up Here or Porcupine and not be out of place as Will immerses us in a brilliant Middle-Eastern frenzy of top guitar work as only he can. I only received the cd yesterday but I have already played the whole album to death over the last few weeks thanks to Amazon Autorip and it just gets better and better with every listen. It's interesting that the few pieces of negativity I have read surrounding this record always drone on about how it "can't compare to their first 4 albums" well I for one am sick of hearing that, Meteorites stands up to any of those albums and more and believe me I love them as much as anyone. Don't be brainwashed by the tripe that masquerades as music these days, this is the business, this is Echo And The Bunnymen the best band in the world bar none. Buy it now, I guarantee you won't regret it.
