Breno,

When I first encountered Echo and the Bunnymen with the release of "Porcupine" back as a teenager in 1983, I was so dopey and unaware of the The Doors/1960s psychedelia influence (see the Byrds homage "Angels and Devils"--an "Ocean Rain" related b-side to "Silver" that I didn't encounter until their box set "Crystal Days") on the band. I hated The Doors and everything that "classic" rock represented--I thought the Bunnymen and all the post-punk/new wave bands I was listening to were a clean break from all that, right?! But when I heard their cover of "People Are Strange" on "The Lost Boys" soundtrack, the connection was painfully obvious. I've forgiven Mac long ago and my love for the band has only deepened over the years.

Their Richman cover is awesome and even though this is sort of odd album, all of these tracks work quite well in their Bunnymen interpretations (and "Crocodiles" and "Do It Clean" fit in with everything else). Will Sergeant, Les Pattinson, and Pete De Freitas (RIP) were brilliant, as always.

Steve
