An album I've known for a while but never got to know really well. A very good album that's almost as good as the great Smiths and Cure albums of the 80's. The Killing Moon is a great song which the opening sequence of Donnie Darko made even cooler than it already was.
Undoubtedly one of the greatest records of the 80s, Ocean Rain is a cohesive collection of songs that build with epic swells. The more immediate tracks like Killing Moon and Silver provide instant results while tracks like Nocturnal Me and Thorn Of Crowns take shape over repeated listens. Unlike some others who commented, I actually think Thorn of Crowns is one of the best tracks of Ocean Rain.
It was a pleasant surprise to see The Echomen were popular on this website.
Hands-down Echo's best album. Silver kicks it off and it doesn't lose any energy until Thorn of Crowns, the only disappointing song off the album. Even Yo-yo Man is saved by the haunting bell interlude in the middle.
But then, you hear the band's crowning moment in The Killing Moon, and the album maintains its emotion for the final three tracks. But I'd like to call special attention to the title track and album closer Ocean Rain. It starts slow, with nothing but a bass line and soft vocals that picks up energy as it goes, creating a powerful grand finale.
One of my all-time favourite albums and by far my favourite of the 80's. It's surprising that the band's self-titled was their most famous over-seas when this album is such a masterpiece. 10/10.
Take "The Killing Moon" off this album and it would not be as highly rated as it is. Still a good album but for me "Crocodiles" was their best album!
I got this album after hearing The Killing Moon as the intro track to the movie Donnie Darko, and what a great purchase it was!
Essential 80s album.
I love "The greatest album ever", even though it isn't.
Echo were one of the best yet most underrated of the 80's post punk bands. Ocean Rain is possibly their best album though I prefer their debut Crocodiles myself. The Killing Moon is largely considered to be their best song and it's hard to disagree. Echo are likely the primary inspiration behind modern mega-band Coldplay.
Not as clausotrophobic as Porcupine and more upbeat than Heaven Up Here, Ocean Rain is the Bunnymen's greatest moment. Here, they're doomy psychelica is at it's most intoxicating.
