Just listening to the album 'Heaven up Here'. It's funny how you are so desperate to hear new bands that sometimes you forget your old faves. Still sound great a quarter of a century later. 'Turquoise Days' is sublime.

Have you heard the reissue? The four live tracks are amazing.

Yeah I have. 'Show Of Strength' is especially good.

Crocodiles is awesome, Ocean Rain has some good songs.

That's about as far as I go with Echo, but they're a pretty great band.

It's right up there... everyone should own Crocodiles...

love this band!

Little appreciation in this thread for one of my favorite songs of all time. Anyone who thinks "Silver" isn't a beautiful song has no soul.

A great all around band though. I'll go more in depth when I have the time.

^thanks for bumping this thread.
I'll agree with everybody here who says that Heaven Up Here is their best (or at least an excellent album) and just for fun I'll add that Ian McCulloch is a better singer/frontman than Jim Morrison ever could have been.

I like Echo And The Bunnymen's song The Killing Moon, and I've been meaning to check them out for a long, long time now... maybe I finally will!

Ocean Rain and Porcupine are awesome.
I have Heaven Up Here and Crocodiles sitting in iTunes... but haven't listened yet.
