Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Flowers, the third creditable installment of Echo and the Bunnymen's second honeymoon period, finds the stylish, duopolistic musical nucleus of Ian McCulloch's vocal somnolence and Will Sergeant's Eastern guitar mystique newly augmented by the work of bassist Alex Gleave, drummer Vinny Jamieson, and keyboard player Ceri James. Subtle psychedelic touches of theremin, organ, and backwards guitar pursue the colorization of a few monochromatic areas but, for the most part, Flowers is less the work of a new broom and more the affirmation of the Bunnymen's vintage vibe. Therefore, the opening "King of Kings" (think the Doors' "When the Music's Over") wouldn't sound out of sorts on Ocean Rain, while the pronounced garage pop of "Make Me Shine" and "Life Goes On" both build on past endeavors with a newly insistent, radiant vitality. The album's centerpiece--the careworn, love-scarred lamentation of the title track--exudes hard-earned maturity. And maturity is beginning to suit Echo and the Bunnymen very well indeed. --Kevin Maidment

5.0 out of 5 stars Intensely Aesthetic, Significant, Important December 7, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The rare and underappreciated gift of Echo and the Bunnymen is their ability to conjure mind movies. You might not see ghost bicycles plying a silver dome-skied heaven like I do, but if you listen, you'll see something.
This new work, in particular, shimmers with aesthetic intensity. Even when you're tempted to write off a line here or there as trite or cliched, Ian McCulloch's resonant voice saves it. Will Sergeant's guitar bundles an immense array of melodic sound around the band's strong rhythms.
Everything is organically unified. The vocals and the guitar at times peer through cautious fingers into vaulting spanses of cosmic space that music has failed to probe for years or maybe forever. Songs like "SuperMellowMan" are as melodic as they are uncharted.
The themes, as usual, insinuate themselves onto an emotional plain dominated by the weight of mortality, especially on "Buried Alive," the spacey ballad "Burn for Me," and the title track.
The celebration of life is present, too, on energetic but melodic "Everybody Knows" and "Life Goes On," both of bear ties to earlier works.
This is a stunning album that deserves far more attention than it is likely ever to get. That in itself makes it not only significant, but important.
If you care to make a difference in a wasteland culture and an industry hell-bent for mindless, craftless idiocy, get this album.
And don't download it; buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Bunnymen Are Bloomin Back May 22, 2001
By tex
Format:Audio CD
Flowers the third and without doubt best installment of the glorious return of Echo & The Bunnymen, is a stroll through the psycedelic garden that is the minds eye of messers Will Sergeant and Ian McCulloch. The boys are on familiar ground with a nod to the doors Through the opening track King of Kings and a wink to The Velvet Underground with Buried Alive all the classic hallmarks that make the Bunnymen tick are here. Mac really Flexes his vocal muscels with the gorgeous title track Flowers while Will has a ball with An Eternity Turns, finishing with the custumery haunting ballad in this case Burn With Me. Here is what all Bunnyheads have been waiting for the big sister to Ocean Rain, so if you want to tell someone you love them say it with flowers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flowers Grow February 12, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I only bought this beacause it was cheap and didn't expect much. I rate CDs on how much I play them and I havn't stopped playing this one yet. A lot of Cds last a week or so. It's been 2 months since I bought this. At first listen it seems pretty ordinary but it sneaks up on you and I found myself singing the tunes while I was walking around the house. I havn't done that for years. For me this makes Flowers one of the best CDs I've had in many years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flower Power May 22, 2001
By Peter
Format:Audio CD
Many old Echo fans bemoaned the "soft" sound of the last album, "What are you gonna do...". I thought it was brilliant. The elder statesbunnymen were getting older and wiser. These were the sounds of ocean rain pattering on a roof that had seen lot of changes since the crystal days of yesteryear. They invited us to "get in the car" and go for a ride; with "Flowers", they take us on a trip into space, and what a trip it is... The title track treats us to a spooky and hooky theremin riff. While it's not faster than a speeding bullet, nor able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, "SuperMellowMan" has Supermac revealing his vulnerable side ("...will you talk me through till dawn, never felt so lost and lonely") while in the energetic "It's Alright", he makes it clear that he ain't no pushover ("I need more not less, and don't ever tell me when to stop"). My personal fave track is "Buried Alive". I don't know a killing moon from a Delvaux moon, but the way Mac croons about how "childhood's end came too soon" communicates something that few songs nowadays do- and the guitar lick that drones in the background reminds me of how Bowie's "Heroes" might have sounded in another lifetime. Throughout, Will shreds, jangles, smolders, and combusts on the guitars, Mac does his thing on the mic, and melodies ring sweet but not saccharine. The album closes with the words "one night, your sea will melt into my ocean" ("Burn for Me"). Water. Flowers. Hearts. Flames...

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy this CD! The band just gets better with age. May 22, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have been a fan of Echo & The Bunnymen since around 1985. Once I heard them, I had to get my hands on everything they had made previously, and I continue to buy what the band releases.
I thought they had reached their peak with "Evergreen" in 1997, but "Flowers" -- albeit more mellow than other releases -- is musically and lyrically superior to most of the band's releases. Doubtful they'll top the success of their self-titled album in the late 80's (or "Ocean Rain" for that matter) but it doesn't matter. The band has a made an album that reaches across genres to (hopefully) give the band a wider audience. It is such a good album. Fans of any of their old stuff will be instantly amazed at this release.
Let's hope they get the promo they deserve in the States.
I suggest buying a few copies of this--give them to your friends.
