Perhaps the least well regarded of their first four albums, I have a soft spot for Porcupine, and I certainly like it more than Heaven Up Here.

Plus, ‘The Cutter’ was the best song on their first three albums, that is a belief that I will hold until I die.

Even after multiple listens, this doesn't really interest me at all.

The first two tracks make you think this will be a great album... then it sort of stumbles after that

The weakest of Echo and The Bunnymen's first four albums, but it's still a solid album in its own right. "The Back of Love" is a kickass song.

Good album, just not quite as great as Heaven up here or Ocean Rain. All songs are good, but nothing really spectacular.

While Ocean Rain gets all of the attention, Porcupine is not far off from being just as grand a statement for Echo & The Bunnymen. The title track is as epic as anything they ever released.
