This was slagged by the press, but I picked it up cheaply in a sale and couldn't believe it. What gorgeous, perfectly produced, thoughtfully written, beautifully played and sung music this is. Brilliant tunes, amazing singing from mac as always... and whenever I mention it to people it's amazing how many people know it and love too. If these guys had only ever written 'Rust' they would be legends. I bet Noel Gallagher wishes he'd written half the tunes on this album.
This album is the classic Bunnymen sound, but from guys now late 30s, early 40s, calming down a bit and writing about theirs and our world and experiences. We should love it as much as we loved them doing the same for us 20 years ago, when we were 20-odd too. OK, it hasn't got the big hits, but I'm nearly 40 and I don't care about hits... I find myself playing this album to death. How many acts are this good, 20 years on? I honestly can't think of even one.

I have no idea what happened to the Bunnymen in the late 80s and most of the 90s. Then, one morning in '99, I was (unusually) listening to a music radio channel and they were playing this great new single (Nothing Ever Lasts Forever) from the Bunnymen. I thought I'd misheard, but no it was Mac and the lads. Later in '99 I decided to buy the album and by accident bought not 'Evergreen' but 'What are you going to do...' I'm so glad I did.
In 1979(ish) I heard one of the Bunnymen's first John Peel sessions and they blew me away, twenty years later they did the same again. Mac's voice is better than ever and Will hasn't lost any of his guitar-playing flair, the songs are beautifully crafted. Soon I found that the only album I was listening to in work was this one. Then my wife borrowed it and I didn't see it again for a month. it's that sort of album, the songs get under your skin. Even if I didn't hear the album again for ten years, or twenty, I'm sure I'd find myself singing along with every word when I next heard it.
I owe the Bunnyman a lot, they gave me a soundtrack for my teenage years and now they've given me some beauty to enjoy in my thirties. I really can't tell you how much I enjoy this album.
This is the one for the money, This is the one for the show.

This is by far Echo and the Bunnymen's most underrated album. It's such a shame that only a small number of people own or have listened to this album. It is hard to compare it to albums such as Crocodiles as it is a more slower-paced acoustic style album, but it stands up proudly alongside Ocean Rain. Stand-out tracks are Rust (Beautiful reflective lyrics about loss and regret), Get In The Car (Nice upbeat funky tune, very uplifting - should have been released as a single that Summer), Fools Like Us (One of the best songs ever written about a failing relationship/breakup - also includes a mind blowing solo!).
It may take a few listens to fully appreciate, but if you give this album time, you can congratulate yourself on finding the greatest lost gem of the past 10 years.

People seem to be under the impression that this got savaged upon it's release in 1999, although I remember NME giving it 9/10, which isn't exactly a mauling, is it? Anyways... I love this album. It's my favorite Bunnymen LP by a country mile. And yes, I have compared it to 'Crocodiles' and 'Porcupine' and even 'Ocean Rain'. I just love this record. So many timeless, mature, relaxing and beautiful songs. It's the Bunnymen's heartbreak album (I guess every band has got to have one sooner or later), and it decimates the likes of Coldplay and Travis. If you're in the mood for lost nostagic summers and memories of past loves, then this is the album for you.

You might remember Echo and the Bunnymen from the 80s as being a bit pretentious, a bit gothy, with stuff about crowns of thorns and dancing horses. This album, from 1999, is nothing like that. It's simply a classy and timeless collection of pop songs which see singer Ian McCullough ponder the mistakes he has made, the love he has lost and what hope there is for the future. The gorgous single 'Rust' (which you might have heard on the radio, it begins 'Wish that you were here...') sold scandalously few copies, and the album stiffed, but the critical acclaim it garnered is entirely merited by its quality throughout. Particularly amazing is the first half, with 'Rust', the enthralling, low-key title track, the sun-kissed groove of 'Get in the Car' (which features the Fun Lovin' Criminals' horn section) and the soaring, magnificent 'Baby Rain'. I would recommend this album to anyone because it has the lot - great tunes, heartfelt lyrics, and Mac's lovely singing voice.

That this album was savaged by the press when it first reviewed just shows how jaded and blinkered the music press is. "What Are You Going Do With Your Life?" is arguably Echo & The Bunnymen's best. It's a wonderful album of beautiful songs - perfect for summer days driving in the car with the window down, or moody autumnal English days stuck indoors dreaming of warmer times. Okay, so it's not as edgy as their early albums. And it's a short album. But so what? It's a superb album in it's own right. It deserves to be listened to by music fans. I own hundreds of albums. Many I don't even listen to any more. I listen to "What Are You Going To Do With Your Life?" often. There isn't a bad song on it. And there aren't many albums you can say that about. The music press got it wrong. Not for the first time.
