This one does not do anything for me, a tuneless mush. Unlikely I will ever play this again.

The best Bunnymen album, although I equally like Ocean Rain. The 3 first songs are really awesome, killer tracks. The drumming is really standing out.

After a week of repeated listening, I'd say you can try on this album in either of two ways. Either, you judge it by its stand out songs, which are far and few between: if you can listen half a dozen times and manage to hum more than 2 tunes afterwards, you're doing better than me.

Sadly, I could never get into this one. I love everything else the Bunnymen have put out, but Heaven Up Here just dosen't make the cut. That's not to say there aren't moments I love. All My Colours is one of my favourite Echo songs, and A Promise is fantastic. But as an album, I found it didn't come together as well as any other release by the band.

Not as good as Ocean Rain but getting there. Love the way it builds towards a climax towards the end of the 2nd side with a brace of brilliant songs.
