#542 Echo & The Bunnymen – Ocean Rain

Echo & The Bunnymen again? Kind of overrated at this point. Ocean Rain is their fourth studio album and their third one on this ridiculous list. I wish I could find a replacement list to going the journey. The album was released in 1984 so it had a lot of competition for attention. I might have stated it in the early reviews of their albums, but I find Ian McCulloch bit bland compared to the other English singers during this time period. It was released to mixed reviews.

I just remembered who liked them in my life. It was in the 90s, I had a friend named John and he liked them a lot. John turned out to be a bad friend and so was one of his favourite bands. He was extremely deceitful.

The best song is the title song, but even that is not going on my list.

My opinion on this album is quite simple. It drones on and on. His vocals sound the same on each song. Do yourself a favour and listen to “Bring on the Dancing Horses” or even “Lips Like Sugar”. This is what they could have been. This album is pictured in the dictionary under mediocrity. Look it up. 5/10.
