Released: Jan 1984
Label: Rhino/Warner Bros.
An album that works end to end, Ocean Rain is Echo & the Bunnymen's moment in the sun. The grand, majestic strings, the band's obvious energy and Ian McCulloch's borderline nonsense lyrics mesh perfectly, creating an album with roots in 1960s Psychedelic/Baroque Pop and '80s Post-Punk while maintaining its own identity. One of the finer records in any collections, this contains the hit singles "Killing Moon," "Seven Seas" and "Silver." This remastered edition comes with numerous live cuts added on.
